Amazing Race 4 may debut in June.
Last we heard, CBS pushed back the debut of The Amazing Race 4 to “spring” or maybe even “summer” when it renewed Star Search. So when will it debut, exactly? While CBS is still quiet, questions and answers about the show on the web site of AXN, an Asian network that airs it, indicate that network will air the fourth season “on the same day that it is goes to air in the United States,” and the program “is expected to be ready for broadcast in the summer of 2003 (June to August 2003).” Why the delay? The FAQ only says it “has been postponed because of unexpected delays in the US.”
