CBS sets February premiere dates for Survivor Amazon, Amazing Race 4.
Both Survivor Thailand and The Amazing Race 3 conclude next week, but we won’t have to wait long for the next season of each show. Survivor Amazon is expected to debut Thursday, Feb. 13, while The Amazing Race 4 may debut on Wednesday, Feb. 26; it’s possible that the show might be moved up an hour to 8 p.m. rather than its current 9 p.m. timeslot, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That would move it away from The Bachelor.
