I was just reading that CBS has ordered approved a 20th season of The Amazing Race. You knew they would. The Amazing Race is one of those Survivor type show that never end, ever. I’ve never watched The Amazing Race. It’s too stressful. And I stopped watching Survivor about twelve incarnations ago. But obviously plenty of people still like them.
You would think between the two of them they’d run out of places to go. Twenty seasons of The Amazing Race and twenty two seasons of Survivor… that’s a lot of places. They only need one remote place for each Survivor season but for The Amazing Race they need something like fifteen different destination cities filled with people to help/hinder the participants. Add in all the different regional/national variations and spinoffs and literally the entire Earth has been re-discovered by game show contestants (Magellan would be so proud…)
Eventually people are going to start complaining that they’re repeating themselves. Rather than give up on such big moneymakers (which are relatively cheap to film compared to one hour dramas) and next thing you know they’ll announcing Survivor: Marianas Trench and The Amazing Race: Interplanetary Edition. Now THERE’S something I’d watch.
