CBS Announces Survivor, Amazing Race Spring Premiere Dates

The Amazing Race season 29 FINALLY gets a premiere date on CBS, as the network announces its winter and spring lineup.  However, TAR will not premiere until late April, after skipping its fall cycle entirely. The latest season has been in the can for months and there is no indication that a season 30 will happen any time soon. 

Also, a new competition reality series, Hunted premieres Sunday, Jan. 22, immediately following the NFL’s AFC Championship game (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/7:00-8:00 PM, PT – time is approximate after post-game coverage). The series moves to Wednesdays on Jan. 25 with a special two-hour episode, 8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT, and then air 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT in subsequent weeks.

Also, in the second half of the year:

  • The next season of Survivor debuts with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, March 8 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), one week after the conclusion of HUNTED. Survivor moves to its regular Wednesday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period on March 15.
  • The multi-Emmy Award-winning reality series The Amazing Race returns on Friday, April 21 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), with a two-hour premiere one week after the season finale of MacGyver, then moving to its regular Friday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period on April 28.
