    According to CNN.com, AR4 may not air until late spring/summer because Star Search will be getting a second run. Another ratings over quality decision, AR4 is by far superior to the unwatchable Star Search. I was wondering why CBS.com hadn't created a site yet about AR4, I really hope this isn't the reason.

    That's the scuttlebutt. I have no idea who's watching Star Search.

    Damn, I am so sick of these derivative crap shows. At least Amazing Race is exciting and entertaining, without any of the rancid fecal dumbassitude that insipid tripe like American Idol, Star Search, and Joe Millionaire keep squirting out of their collective quivering anuses.

    And Flo should take it up the old dirt road for life.

    I actually tried to watch an episode of Star Search. (Tivo makes it so easy to sample shows.) I couldn't make it through it at sound speed and had to blaze through lots of it. Needless to say, I don't have a Season Pass for it.

    Someone on the Realiiity.com forums emailed Marc Berman from Mediaweek; he thinks it will be back in March. That wouldn't be too bad compared to AR2, which started on 3/11 and had 2 eps the first week, although AR4 probably wouldn't start till Star Search ended at the end of the month.

    Since the WB has moved Angel to Wednesday at 9 and I also watch The West Wing, I don't mind if they move TAR to the summer.

    Wednesday is a good day for it, but they should move it to 8 instead of 9, less competition. Weekends are generally not a good time for reality based shows. Tuesdays at 8 would be a good time also, as long as AI is not on.
    Even though the ratings have not been spectacular, TAR is my favorite "reality" show (well, at least since Anderson Cooper is no longer hosting the Mole, Rashad stinks).

    Wednesday at 8 or Tuesday at 9 works for me.

    Got some good news, I think. On both the Realiiity.com and Televison Without Pity boards, there was a post that TAR4 was going to begin on Wednesday, March 12, about the same time TAR2 began. If we get 11 episodes like the last two editions, it would go through the third week of May. I have no way to confirm the accuracy of this but it would be good if it's true.

    Keen. Hopefully they'll put it in the 8pm slot as opposed to moving the newsmagazine back here; I don't see any point in putting TAR up against The Bachelor again.

    There is in an article in today's New York Times that says TAR4 will be a summer show. I really wish there would be some sort of press release on when the show will premiere since every new article has it starting in a different month.

    ABC did this to the Mole and wondered why it could not get any veiwers. When will these dummies learn?
