The Amazing Race is expanding to 90 minutes, as is Survivor, and together they'll make up the full Wednesday night schedule on CBS this fall.

I can not wait for "Elsbeth" (although I think it deserves a better title). She was my favorite recurring character on both 'The Good Wife' and 'The Good Fight'. Also glad it will be on CBS and not streaming on Paramount+ (or whatever they call it these days) like they did 'The Good Fight'.

Survivor can definitely do 90 minutes. We miss out on so much as it is, especially all the scrambling.
Amazing Race would definitely be padding. There’s not that much more we need to see each leg.

Oh wow, I loved her character…in small doses. I hope they fill it with all the other reoccurring characters from TGW and TGF and maybe a nice sendoff for Michael Keaton.

The only CBS shows I watch are Survivor and Amazing Race, but I loved Elspeth on The Good Wife and I love Kathy Bates, so I'll at least check those shows out.
And I think both Survivor and Race can fill 90 minutes just fine.

The last time there was a writer's strike, it killed a favorite show of mine, Pushing Daisies. It was doing all right in the ratings. A lack of new eps caused a drop in the ratings. Am not against people striking. They definitely should have a piece of the pie. In fact, if it is financially possible, residuals should continue for the rest of actor/writer's life. Have all of PD on Blu-ray. Am wistful for what might have been.

There was a completed season filmed before this one, but they decided to air this one instead because it could be edited into 90-minute segments (which they decided to do because of the writers' strike.) So that previous season is still in the can, presumably in 60-minute segments, waiting to be aired. And since it hasn't been aired, the winners haven't receive their winnings, nor can they talk about it. Additionally, it's going to seem strange to have it air after the current episodes, since it was filmed with more COVID restrictions (charter flights again, probably, for example.)

While I watched the first several seasons of AR religiously I haven't watched it in years now (see also: Survivor). But thanks to DL, I'm Racing again. (Team Corey and Dad!) (Still not interested in Survivor, though.) Not sure why the sisters ate all those Express Pass insects when it didn't seem to give them much advantage. It was Bugs v. Boat/TukTuk Rides. I knew the eliminated team was a goner when they couldn't decide who would do a challenge. Just pick one and then alternate who does the challenges after that (although the military brothers' solution of rock-paper-scissors is a good alternative). Would love to go to Thailand but, between the humidity and chilies, fear I would sweat to death and die.

That sibling team who got eliminated…creepy! They live together, work at the same company and eat the same breakfast (oatmeal!) each morning! He seemed gay, but there was also a flowers-in-the-attic vibe going on.
The both the guys in the gay couple are hot. They also were smart to watch the practice session of the sibling team at the sword challenge. They picked it up really quickly and beat several of the couples who opted for the massage.
Love Bangkok. Such a great city to visit, but the challenges weren’t particularly exciting to watch. Watching people get massages? Riding around in boats? The casting has improved so much from that blah era or blind-date season and social media (vine!) season, but they challenges used to be so much more creative and interesting to watch.

I agree that this is a likable cast. Even Texas Daddy isn't aggressively assholish, just casually so. (Did you notice he never once engaged with the furriners helping him out or handing him a clue?) I thought the shorter gay fiancé might get on my nerves but he was better in the second episode. Time will tell.

Still Team Cody and Dad, although I wish the former would have taken off his shirt in the pomelo challenge (I don't ask for much, and, yes, he seems to be a sweetheart). I thought Texas Daddy was going to have a heat stroke doing that one (as I would have, no doubt, but then I would have chosen the market option).
I'm of two minds about the new 90-minute length. On one hand, it shows how long and/or grueling some of the challenges really are. On the other, it's VERY repetitive watching teams load and unload pomelos or fail at creating bouquets. I guess we'll see entire unedited challenges when the show is down to four or five teams.

The second episode was a good one. These felt like classic TAR challenges. They were tough and engaging to watch. I think the editors had a tough time because the first two teams absolutely flew through the challenges and got to Phil way before anyone else. Most of the other teams held their places from last week and appeared to arrive fairly spread out without many races to the finish line.
Still, these has to be one of the best casts in ages. You see, TAR, you don’t NEED to cast a Big Brother couple or former NFL players/cheerleaders every season. Just cast normal friends and family members like this and you’ll be fine.

Thanks, show, for the very brief shirtless photo of CODA Cody! (If you blinked and missed it, he's either naturally very smooth or shaves his nicely developed torso.) I thought the expanded run time might turn out to be interesting, but it's kinda not. They just show more of the challenges, which is either very repetitive (moving fruit *again*) or visually uninteresting (applying vinyl). Can't imagine what it will be like when they're down to a handful of teams. Maybe the eliminated teams will come back and do stand-up or something.
In other news, the Military Bros have very pretty hair, and Phil has been around the world 35 TIMES now (unless there was a season he didn't host).

I didn't want to read this thread until I watched all four episodes, and now I'm all caught up.
It's funny how the comments here are exactly what I was thinking while watching the show.
[quote] I think deaf guy's son and the two Asian brothers are hot!
Corey, Liam and Yeremi.
And it looks like Liam and Yeremi's mom is either Native American or Hispanic, and their dad is Northern European.
Their back story is really interesting and I want to know more. After their parents divorced, it sounds like there was some bad blood between the brothers. Then in episode four Liam talks about how he had a big fight with Yeremi (before he left for the military) and when Yeremi tried to reach out by writing letters, Liam told him to stop writing. HARSH!
Watching them now, it's hard to believe they were ever estranged, because they're so close.
As for Corey, I am so in love with him. Total boyfriend/husband material.
I think that children of parents with disabilities are so much more thoughtful and caring, because they're taught empathy and responsibility at a young age. They have no choice.
Corey is such a good guy that I just light up he appears on the screen. And it doesn't hurt that he's hot as hell. He looks so much like his father, but younger and more in shape.
[quote] I don’t understand how that milquetoast team that got eliminated even made it on the show. They were so indecisive and bland and seemed completely indifferent to being there.
I really liked them. I thought they were hilariously clueless. They couldn't even make a simple decision together.

His HUGE cock was on display in episode one when he was introducing the Pit Stop for the first leg of the race, in front of the giant statue.

[quote] Watching their intro package, I was wondering, "just how dumb ARE their wives?"
Absolutely. The beards make them look "less gay" now, but when they were in the military, they looked like they were flaming! No wonder they found each other and became besties.
I'm thinking it's a Brokeback Mountain scenario, where they're both married but have a yearly "get together" where they spend time "going fishing" or "camping."

I would almost say too tough.

I thought I was the only one who felt this way.
The entire first and second legs seemed rigged in favor of them.
Not only were the challenges all about food/market skills (which is their business and trade), but it was also in a country and language with which they were familiar. It was ridiculous.
Then notice how when it came to an actual memory and recognition skill challenge (which put everyone on a level playing field), they failed miserably.
I'm glad they're gone.

First off, the beauty of the location really captured my attention. I have never in my life wanted to visit India, but I would actually visit Jaipur. It's stunning. And full of beautiful scenery, buildings, and culture.
Second, I'm very impressed with Anna Leigh. Yes, she's pushy and overbearing. But I give her a lot of credit for being so focused, and pushing her dad, when he slows her down. I can see how she would rub some people the wrong way, but in this kind of race, it's exactly what's needed. And she is really quite smart and detail oriented. Ordinarily, I wouldn't like someone like her (especially if they were losing), but I definitely must give her credit for leading her team to first place two times in a row.
Third, I was so nervous for Corey and his dad!!! It was just a lucky twist of fate that they chose the doll challenge. Who knew it would be so much easier than the picture challenge? And it made all the difference in the world. They went from last to 5th place! Whew!
Fourth, I was so sad to see Joe and Ian go home. They were a very likable gay couple. Not annoying, not pushy, and they got along well with each other. It was very refreshing to see. I was hoping they would have beaten those two annoying sisters. The older sister is particularly annoying. Unfortunately, they just lucked out with their cab driver who took the shortcut.
This race was a photo finish, and it was so exciting!

Although I'm sure they're well (or decently) compensated, I always feel bad for the locals who have to do the same skill over and over and over with the racers until they master said skill. Like the bowl dancers and musicians in Jaipur.

This episode sucked donkey balls.
FUCK THAT RICKSHAW BITCH WHO SCREWED OVER THE HOT BOYS!!!!
No wonder they never used to let women drive rickshaws in India. Those women are fucking clueless.
It's completely unfair of TAR to force teams to stick with the same driver throughout the entire leg. If you have a shit driver like Liam and Yeremi had, then you are DOOMED to lose the race. Which is exactly what happened.
I think sometimes the show does shit like this to eliminate stronger teams, in favor of weaker teams (like those two ladies who came in ahead of the boys).
If I'm not mistaken, teams used to be able to grab a new driver, if their driver was slow or stupid, like Liam and Yeremi's driver was.
I swear, I would have been so fucking pissed at her and screaming my head off.
You're in a race for a million dollars. You should be able to switch out a bad taxi/rickshaw driver. PERIOD.

I don't think there's been a rule change. If you get a taxi randomly on the street or at the airport, I don't think anything prevents you from stopping and switching to another one. However, when the vehicles & drivers are provided by TAR (i.e. "marked'), you're stuck with it, as was the case in this episode.

Which, as mentioned earlier, absolutely DOOMS a team to lose the race.
Especially if you get a driver like the one that Liam and Yeremi had.
That woman was absolutely clueless, and had no idea where she was going.
As Liam said, "It would have been faster if we ran."
That was completely unfair to them, and she is the sole reason that they came in last.
What made it worse was that they had to sit there and take it, because they couldn't do anything about it.

Watching the Pink Team this leg, really really really pissed me off.
What a complete waste of a racing spot they were.
I was crushed last week when Liam and Yeremi went home because of their stupid rickshaw driver.
So to think that Liam and Yeremi would have done an infinitely better job on this leg than the Pink Team did, makes me angry.
The Amazing Race MUST do a better job at fairness. That stupid India leg, where teams' fates were left up to some stupid cab driver, was not fair at all. It left a crappy team in the race, and eliminated a good team.
Germany just proved what an awful team the Pink ladies were, when left to their own devices. The only reason they got so far was because cab drivers did all the navigating for them in Asia.
Once they were left to their own devices in finding their way around, the Pink team just collapsed.
How is that even fair to Liam and Yeremi. It's not! It's total bullshit.

I hope that Team Misery gets eliminated next week.
They are very unpleasant to each other, and nasty to the other teams.
They don't smile, they don't say thank you, and they're not helpful to other teams. Yet they had no problem leeching on to the brothers, because they couldn't do their own navigation.
And that one lady, she is just over it. She refused to do the math to count the coins, she didn't want to remember the names of the mustard, etc. Why is she even on the race?
At least the brothers are having fun, taking their time, enjoying the countries and the challenges, and they still have time to be nice to each other and the other teams.
I would be happy to see any of the remaining teams win, EXCEPT for those two miserable women on Team Misery.

I love that the bearded guys were genuinely surprised that they weren't last.
That's what's nice about not being in a crowded city in race-provided transportation. The teams are spaced farther apart, and don't have a real sense of where the other teams are.
In this case, the Pink Team was so lost, that no one else knew where they were. It makes the race more exciting and more unpredictable.
Can you imagine if the Pink Team did the soccer challenge, while the bearded team did the mustard challenge and they were closer together?
The bearded team would have lost, because they were just taking their time tasting the mustard and eating the hot dog.

Same here, R143. Corey and his dad were my favorites from the beginning.
Greg and John are also now my favorites. I don't think they have been unpleasant even once during this race. And the funniest thing about them is that they just take their time (I think they actually almost WASTE time), they move so slowly, and they are very nice to other people. Yet they are still at the front of the pack!
But the other teams aren't bad.
The bearded guys Joel and Garret are very nice. They haven't done one mean thing this entire race.
The tall married couple Ashlie and Todd are very cool too. They have actually helped out a lot of other teams. On this most recent episode Ashlie helpted Corey's dad Rob with the clue to the combination lock. She didn't even think twice. He asked her for help, and she told him the answer. (PS, he didn't even say thank you!)
Steve and Anna Leigh aren't bad either. Anna Leigh is pushy, but I truly think she's not malicious. She treats other people on the race well, and she also treats the locals well. So I can't be mad at her about getting frustrated with her dad every now and then. She's just very driven.
The only two objectionable teams left are Morgan and Lena and Robbin and Chelsea.
Morgan and Lena are just annoying because of their bickering. I mean, they don't stop. The older sister is also such a bitch. She rarely smiles. Not even on the carnival challenge, which everyone else enjoyed.
Then there's Robbin and Chelsea, who are probably the most unpleasant people on the race. I can't stand either one of them. If they make it to the final three, then I'll be very worried.
Next week is another express pass, and it looks like it's a race to get it between Rob and Corey and Greg and John.

Why do they usually cast at least one team with an out of shape black person who has almost no chance of winning? It feels racist. It's not every season, but it does happen regularly.

What an exciting episode! I love a surprise ending.
I was sure that Anna Leigh and her dad were going home. They were so far behind.
And it was so weird how the sisters team and the bearded guy team were both encouraging them, "Keep going. It's not over until it's over." And look what happened!
Happy for the brothers winning another leg. They're doing really well.
But I'm also happy for Corey and his dad. The amount of climbing in this episode was unreal. Both of the older and out-of-shape men (Steve and Rob) completed the stair challenge, and I thought they were going to croak! And then just when you thought it was over, they had to make another climb up the spiral staircase!!
And to think that the married couple got there first, but missed the clue to the stairway. They don't usually make that kind of mistake, but I think the pressure is getting to everyone.
In the end, I'm not sad that the sisters went home. I'm glad that they mended their relationship, but I was so tired of watching them argue.
And unlike R161 I would still like to see Team Misery go home. Those ladies are still piggy backing on the brothers, and following them in their cars, every chance they get. This episode, the brothers even mentioned that they didn't want those ladies following them.
This leg of the race was really difficult. Between all the climbing, and then the bales of hay (which led to a lot of sneezing and also an allergic reaction for Corey, I actually felt bad for the racers.
I think it's only going to get harder from here on out.

Yes, they brought back two bags of mussels, but they failed to replace the buoy with the mussels, with a replacement buoy.
The editors even highlighted that mistake.
So I'm confused why A) the woman gave them their next clue, and B) Phil didn't send them back to do the challenge correctly or penalize them for doing it wrong.
Corey and Rob knew that they had to do the challenge correctly, and when they couldn't do it, they switched challenges.

R196, I thought the same thing. I was waiting for Phil to give them a penalty like in older seasons. Teams that didn’t complete the challenge but made it to the mat used to incur a 30-minute penalty. They were still in the race as long as the last team didn’t check in before the penalty time expired.

The whole thing was very off R203, and it could seemingly affect the outcome of the race.
If I were the other teams, I would be raising an eyebrow at this episode.
Especially if the brothers end up winning.

You might want to watch it again.
I just re-watched that section and the brothers did nothing wrong. In fact, after they retrieve the first net of mussels, John turns to the camera and says, "Now we need to swap out the marked buoy with the one we brought. And we're not good with knots.. But we just need something strong enough that it stays." They are then shown throwing the replacement into the water and rowing back to the platform with the marked buoy in their kayak. Rinse and repeat.
The editors showed that Rob & Corey were missing the replacement buoy, not the brothers.

Yes, I saw that.
They did it the FIRST time, but not the second time.
That's when the show editors highlighted in white, that the brothers took the mussels with the buoy, but did not REPLACE the buoy.
The SHOW highlighted that in white, which is the only reason I noticed it.
Then after that, it never showed them replacing the buoy. And I know that because they made one trip back to the dock, without making a return trip to replace the missing buoy.

R206 Watch it again. It was Corey who made the mistake (he talks about it later when they're pulling up to the pier). You see him untying the buoy and letting the rope slip into the water, which is when they cut to the mussels underwater with the rope trailing loose.
|by Anonymous||reply 209||November 23, 2023 11:45 PM|
TAR having underwater shots of the mussels not being pulled up by Cory and his dad makes me wonder how that was achieved, there were hundreds of buoys, TAR wouldn't have known ahead of time that a shot of the mussels underwater was needed or which one Cory and his dad would be going to, in order to be there to get that shot.
I suppose TAR could have staged the underwater shot of just some random bag of mussels after the competition was over but that seems a little unethical.

This episode was kind of boring for me.
The challenges weren't all that exciting, and I really hate when teams work together. It really defeats the purpose of a race, as far as I'm concerned.
Which is why I was happy that the Beards came in first. They didn't get any help from anyone else. They just relied on themselves, and came out on top. (PS, I'm really starting to think that they're both either closeted gays or bisexual).
The brothers did a great job with the restaurant task. I love how they are so smart in their approach to the tasks, which really serves them well.
Rob and Corey seemed kind of out of it on this leg. Not sure why they seem so inept, all of a sudden.
Then there's Steve and Anna Leigh. Dear lord, she's going to kill her father. Lol. That poor guy looked like he was ready to drop dead from running. And all she could do was bitch at him!!
Well, he raised that little monster, so .... good luck with that, Steve!
I was sad for the team that left. They really seemed like a decent couple. But if someone had to go, then I'm kind of glad it was them.
Because honestly, I need to see Rob and Corey in the finale with the brothers. Please, please, please!!
It would be nice if the beards were the third team, but I wouldn't be disappointed with Steve and Anna Leigh.
I think everyone in the final four deserves to be there, so I would be happy with any of the remaining teams winning.

Corey looked even hotter wearing glasses. Unfortunately, I don't think he and his dad are the sharpest tools in the shed.
1) Ran past the numbers for the sky-diving challenge.
2) Couldn't find the main entrance to the Royal Dramatic Theatre, even though they were at it.
3) Ran around aimlessly with a couple other teams trying to find the subway station (after the Pampas Marina clue).
And, worst of all --
4) Getting on the bus and telling Anna Leigh and her dumb Daddy that the clue said to take the subway.
You have to be pretty lame to come in third on a leg where you used the Express Pass.

I don't like Anna Leigh either, but I think *some* of her seeming constant yelling at her dad is due to the new 90-minute episode length. Gotta fill the timeframe. And then there's those random destinations -- like a pretty boat at a pier or subway station-- that then send the racers on to another location/challenge. Drop those and maybe make the challenges harder/more compelling. (Although truth be told, that Nobel menu challenge would have broken my brain, as it would have any of the other racers than the brothers.)

What a great episode.
Corey shirtless. Corey's abs. Corey's butt in tight pants. Does it get any better than this?
He and his dad are the feel good team of the season. I just like them both so much, because they seem like very decent people. You don't see that too much nowdays.
I guess Corey is straight, since he seemed to have a crush on his Riverdance instructor. Athough he confused me when he stated that he chose his baseball teacher because "he had a nice smile." That was funny.
And so many of those dancers were cute. I love the blond guy teaching the Bearded guy how to dance.
I got so emotional during this whole episode, because there were so many heartfelt scenes between the team partners. Even Steve and Anna Leigh.
People here give her a lot of shit, but that girl is a powerhouse. She's also sharp as shit. Swimming, Running, Hiking, Building, Memorizing, etc. She's good at all of it.
I'm very happy that it's an all-male finale. That's the first in a long time.
And like the rest of you, I'll be happy with whoever wins.
Although I just think that with the way the editing of personal stories has been going, and how they zoom in on certain words said by team members, the Beards are probably going to win.
There was a lot of foreshadowing going on in the editing, and I've been paying attention. Even hearkening back to that challenge where the beards forgot their notebook and went back for it because they would need it during the final memory challenge. And voila! Here they are in the final three.
But there were other clues too, like the taller beard saying he wants to buy a service dog for his disabled daughter with the prize winnings. The other teams aren't getting personal background stories like that.
I really wanted Corey and his dad to win, but I think the Beards have it.

Either place would qualify as scoring points, R269.
The lower area is actually a harder spot to get the ball in, which means you get three points in the actual game. If you get it through the posts, you only get one point.
So the teams that got the ball in the net would have scored higher in the actual sport.
But it didn't matter, because scoring in either area would get you the clue.
