Thurs, 3/30: The Amazing Race (CBS)
Considered one of the greatest television competitions, and start of the adventure reality craze, The Amazing Race returns for its 29th season. This time the producers have added a new element, the contestants are all complete strangers. “These newbie racers begin with no pre-existing relationships or emotional baggage,” says show host Phil Keoghan. “The excitement of traveling around the world to complete dozens of gut-busting, mind-blowing challenges quickly ignites tension.” Getting to the finish line won’t be easy, as the race will span nine countries, 17 cities, and cover 36,000 miles.
