    Yes to both shows.
    I especially love Amazing Race and prefer this February starting time as it frequently gets hammered by football games running late so I end up not seeing the entire episode. Kudos to them starting the show later this year in some cases, although a few episodes were still cut short, it was far better then before.
    Why have they not greenlit more seasons though???

    Survivor was a good season this year and will be watched again.

    Yahoo! The Amazing Race is my all time favorite program. Can’t wait for it come back.
    I also watch Survivor so that week I’ll be enjoying a two-fer!
