CBS web site mistakenly shows two eliminated Amazing Race 8 families

On Tuesday’s episode of The Amazing Race 8, the Paolo family was eliminated. But according to CBS’ web site, two families were eliminated.

That other family (stop reading now if you don’t want to know) was the Bransen family, whose picture on the Teams page was tinted and marked with an X. Oddly, it wasn’t just that someone uploaded the wrong photo; five team pictures are actually part of one big image, which, in the incorrect version, had been edited to show only three remaining teams.

An alert reader pointed this out to me yesterday, but CBS fixed the error within minutes. Luckily, at least one blogger grabbed screencaps. With thanks to blogger Alisa, Just Jared has posted an image showing the screwed up results page.
