"The Amazing Race 8: Family Edition" broadcasts start this Tuesday; "The Amazing Race 1" on DVD

Broadcasts of The Amazing Race 8: Family Edition will begin this Tuesday night, 27 September 2005 (9-10 p.m. ET/PT, 8-9 p.m. CT/MT) on CBS-TV in the USA.

I've posted a tentative broadcast schedule based on this starting date. Profiles of the cast members are on the CBS-TV Web site for "The Amazing Race 8".

This season will be the "Family Edition" of the reality-TV show about travel around the world, with teams of 4 travellers, some of them including children. A growing number of families, including children, are taking trips around the world. So I'm looking forward to covering this angle in my weekly columns on the Family Edition season.

For the following season, "The Amazing Race 9" (already being cast) will return to the format of the previous season, with teams of 2 adults with a variety of relationships, not just families. Click here for more on how to apply for future seasons of "The Amazing Race".

Television schedules are always subject to change. But assuming that nothing else has changed, and that there are 13 legs of the race, with two of them broadcast in a single final episode, and that none of the broadcasts are preempted by holiday or other programming, that would put the finale of "The Amazing Race 8" on Tuesday, 13 December 2005.

The same day as the premiere of the new "Family Edition" season, the first season of The Amazing Race will be released on DVD as a 4-DVD set including all the originally broadcast episodes as well additional and behind-the-scenes footage, interviews with the producers, and commentary by participants including Team Guido . You can pre-order it now for shipping 27 Septmeber 2005.
