Reruns of Amazing Race’s first season doing well

Reality reruns have had notoriously poor performances. But the Game Show Network’s decision to rerun all eight seasons of The Amazing Race has been paying off so far.

After one week, the network’s ratings are up 69 percent among viewers 18 to 49, and 11 percent overall. Plus, viewers’ median age has dropped from 54 to 42.

A GSN VP said in a press release, “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the first week’s ratings performance of THE AMAZING RACE. We had hoped the series would add new younger viewers and it definitely has, with our median age dropping by 12 years.”

The show airs every night at 9 p.m. ET.
