The Amazing Race 29 has a new premiere date and a new timeslot: it will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. starting March 30.
That’s three weeks earlier than TAR 29’s scheduled debut of April 21, when it would have taken over the timeslot from MacGuyver, a new series that has been doing better in TAR’s Friday timeslot than the race was doing.
On Thursday nights, it replaces Training Day, which CBS is demoting to Saturdays. The scripted drama has struggled in the ratings, and its star, Bill Paxton, died last month, though filming had already completed.
A trailer for the new season aired during the premiere of Survivor Game Changers this past week.
