    I totally agree with you, Grandizer. My family love watching The Amazing Race. We’ve watched all the 19 seasons and looking forward for more.

    At Lauren,
    The show does not run over, the football game hours before it has run over and CBS can’t get their heads out of their a**es to ever start the series on time.
    1/2 – 3/4 of the episodes are normally running late because of football. My DVR records it, yet invariable because the football game ran long, and we must hear all the post game crap, the schedule is always hosed.

    One of the reasons I find it online and watch it without commercials.

    And I disagree about the show being horrible as well. :)

    Please, cancel this horrible show. It’s tedious and no one likes to spend Sunday night watching petty arguments between couples, friends, & siblings. These people have the opportunity to see incredible sights but they spend their time running and fighting. Why does the stupid show run over? CBS shouldn’t allow this. The shows that follow always get cut off when recorded. The editor should be fired.
