    The Amazing Race 5 Gets the Green Light
    Source: Variety
    Monday, September 15, 2003

    CBS has given executive producers Bertram van Munster and Jerry Bruckheimer the green light to begin casting for a fifth installment of the Emmy-nominated reality hit The Amazing Race.

    The network traditionally lets its reality producers begin casting only when there's a solid shot of a pickup or renewal, particularly when it comes to existing franchises.

    The Amazing Race 4, hosted by Phil Keoghan, was a solid Nielsen performer for CBS this summer in a difficult 8 p.m. Thursday slot, building ratings momentum as its season went along.




    Thank you God. I can't believe I got hooked on this show so late in the game. Glad it's getting another shot.

    Great news Jeff! Just went to CBS.com and application is already up. Hopefully, it will air sooner rather than later.

    Well, for TAR, wouldn't that involve having to have (during the opening episode) something like 15 HD rigs running around?

    Oh, and I'll take the brothers.

    Why haven't they made the past shows on DVD ?

    They're much more interesting than Survivor and that's on DVD.

    HELL YEAH!

    Now we need DVD releases!

    Teams I'd like to see:
    Father/Daughter
    Mother/Son
    Twin sisters
    Two mimes
    WNBA Husbands


    I just want more variety. Maybe make all of the teams coed or something. Just no more Alpha-Male teams, please!

    Maybe if the team of cab drivers spoke no English, that would be a riot!

    Great news.


    > I just want more variety. Maybe make all of the teams coed or something.

    That would be LESS variety if they had to be the same.

    How about Siamese twins?

    I'm betting on the gay, virgin hairdressers who date NFL players & moonlight as clowns.

    I'm not sure a flatulent team would be very popular, with all that farting around.

    TARflies Times has an interview with Elise Dognaieri, a co-creator and producer of TAR. The entire interview is very interesting but here's what everyone really wants to know:
