    I hate that CBS can NOT get Amazing Race to play at the correct time almost ANY WEEK.
    And for whatever reason they have their heads up their as*es, why they can not start the show at a time where it would never be affected by the games…

      And hit return BEFORE I could add that it would be nice that when they did this, they allowed the show to be viewed immediately on demand…
