Amazing Race to air early Tuesday

Posted April 26, 2010

Sunday's episode of The Amazing Race, which did not air due to WRAL-TV's storm coverage, will air at 1:37 a.m. Tuesday immediately following the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

The entire episode will air at that time with the remainder of the overnight schedule delayed. As a result, the news repeat and one half hour of CBS' Up to the Minute will not be seen.

The schedule will be as follows:

  • 11 p.m. Monday  – WRAL News
  • 11:35 p.m. Monday – Late Show with David Letterman
  • 12:37 a.m. Tuesday – Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson
  • 1:37 a.m. Tuesday – The Amazing Race
  • 2:37 a.m. Tuesday – Inside Edition
  • 3:07 a.m. Tuesday – Dr. Oz
  • 4:07 a.m. Tuesday – Up to the Minute
  • 4:30 a.m. Tuesday – CBS Morning News

Please be aware that the electronic program guides will probably not be updated, so viewers with DVRs should either set their recording for the program currently listed at 1:37 a.m., Inside Edition, and expand the end time of the recording, or set it to record both Inside Edition and Dr. Oz.

WRAL realizes that not everyone has a DVR or wants to stay up that late to see it. This is the only time CBS approved the airing of the show. Viewers can also watch the entire episode online.

    Who cares. Not a good show.

    I'm glad the weather report was so diligent last night--during the first 10 minutes. After that it became a tad redundant and I felt that it could have been put in the corner with updates running along the bottom of the screen. Any major updates, could of been handled within a couple minutes. Especially since people from the "storm tracker" area were able to call in and give "eye witness" accounts of what they were seeing. I watched the whole AR episode on-line today:-)

    WRAL has a large coverage area. I get it. They could have simply used the scroll along the bottom of the screen to make viewers aware of the warning.

    I check the WRAZ (WRAL's sister station) channel and they were showing the regularly scheduled programming. Why?

    This is typical WRAL. I grew up here and one time in the '80s they did "Operation Snow Desk" when there was about 2 centimeters of snow on the ground. But they kept interrupting programming for Operation Snow Desk reports.

    I can't understand why they didn't show Amazing Race on the TWC digital channel. That way all these little weather geeks could have had their fill of sending their pictures and videos to Fish Face, and those of us who realized what a non-event this was could have watched AR. And even if it was serious, what did it impact, less than 1% of the viewing area?

    Ridiculous self-promotion. When Fischel started the "We saved people's lives" junk, I turned it off.

    Reason #3423 I don't ever watch local news.

    Totally agree that the weather coverage was way overdone, especially when they kept covering it on the track out to the coast. The initial girl doing the weather must have been relieved when Greg came in and took over for her... As they say in the south, bless her heart!

    I can't believe you're replaying it at 1:37am! Come on! We don't all have DVR's! The coverage of the funnel cloud was way overdone, I'm switching to WFMY News 2

    I'm fortunate enough to live in a city that receives two CBS/ABC stations. If my local station has breaking weather related issues I just switch to another station so I can continue to watch my show.

    Wah, boohoo. Bad weather (in the viewing area) interrupted my TV watching. Get over it. Someday, maybe you'll be in the line of fire and grateful WRAL interrupted regular broadcasts to give you updates. The show is being re-aired tonight. You have five choices: 1. Stay up and watch. 2. Set your DVR and watch later. 3. Set your VCR and watch later. 4. Watch it online. 5. Don't watch it at all. CBS doesn't have to rebroadcast the episode, but they are. Relax.

    "Yeah, last night's coverage was particularly annoying since they kept saying the same thing over and over. It also started turning in to a commercial for the Weather Call stuff."

    I thought the same thing. The Weather Call self promotion they did seemed like a tacky infomercial.

    I thought the weather broadcast was way overdone last night. Even when Greg said the threat of storms had passed, he was still talking. I called WRAL several times to ask that they switch to the Hallmark movie, which I wanted to see. I do not have cable to switch to. Is WRAL going to show the movie again? One word to describe last night - Ridiculous!
