Over the span of 26 cycles, CBS has aired more than 300 episodes of The Amazing Race. The ratings have come way down over the years and last season’s numbers weren’t very good — even for a Friday show. Will this reality competition keep coming back or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
Phil Keoghan returns as host with the 27th cycle of The Amazing Race. This season features 11 pairs of contestants racing around the world in pursuit of a million dollar prize. This season will cover 34,000 miles, spanning five continents and ten countries. The race will visit to Zimbabwe for the first time.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
