Amazing Race debuts tonight.
Eleven pairs of friends, lovers and others will compete in Jerry Bruckheimer’s The Amazing Race tonight at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. Thoughts on the show from various TV critics:
- “the best of this genre since the network’s Survivor.”
- “exciting, hilarious, and real.”
- “brings new energy and respectability to the ‘reality’ genre”
- “a dense stew of contestants, rules and requirements”; “boring.”
- “This rousing, scenic contest could well set the entertainment standard for new series this season.”
