Bad cab luck reared its ugly head again on The Amazing Race finale — this time costing Jill Haney, 27, and Thomas Wolfard, 30, a chance at the $1 million prize. After being in second place for most of the leg, the couple fell to third when they got into a cab with a driver who didn't know English — or what the Internet was. "He said he didn't know. How much worse luck can you possibly have?" Thomas tells us. "But the race kind of reflects life experiences, and sometimes you have good days and sometimes you have bad days. Sometimes you go in the wrong direction, you have communication barriers. Everything went wrong. It's kind of how it is." Though they've made their peace with their third-place finish now, the two say they're still upset they never had a chance to catch up to Nat and Kat thanks to the linear structure of the leg.

Fast National ratings for Sunday, December 5, 2010. Football did its thing for NBC Sunday night as viewers recovered from the first round of the holidays came back to watch Pittsburgh school Baltimore.

FOX followed with 11.6 million and a 6.7/10, then CBS (10.9 million, 6.6/10) and ABC (8.7 million, 5.3/8). The adult 18-49 demo title also went to NBC with a 5.7 rating, followed by FOX, 4.6, CBS, 2.6, and ABC, 2.5. To Read More Click Here.
CBS won’t spill a thing, but the web is chock full of spoilers suggesting that the 18th edition of The Amazing Race will feature all-stars from seasons 12-17. Rumors abound that Mike White and his dad Mel will stage a comeback, not to mention Luke Adams and his mom Margie as well as Kris and Amanda — all from season 14. If true, this would be the second all-star edition of the Emmy-winning show; the last one aired during season 11 and averaged 10.5 million. The next installment of Race is expected to bow in February or March. So do all-star versions score that much better in the ratings? They certainly haven’t broken any records for Survivor , which has done at least three. Though the show’s first all-star edition in 2003 did pretty dang well (21.7 million), the other two have mostly been on par with the regular folk editions ( Fans vs. Favorites averaged 13.6 million while Heroes vs. Villains got 13.8 million). And if the current edition is any indication, Survivor doesn’t need visits from Rob Mariano or Johnny Fairplay to juice ratings: The show is up 86 percent in viewers versus what CBS was doing in the Wednesday period a year ago. It’s also up two percent versus what the show was doing on Thursdays last season. Maybe that’s why Dancing with the Stars hasn’t bothered with an all-star edition (though who wouldn’t want to see a Mel B/Jennifer Grey showdown?) To Read More Click Here.
Fast National ratings for Sunday, November 28, 2010. Football viewership dipped during the holiday weekend, but still stayed strong enough to give NBC a win on Sunday in both households and in the adult demo.

NBC drew 13.5 million viewers and a 8.2 rating/13 share in households for Sunday. CBS followed with 12.5 million and an 7.6/12, then FOX (10.4 million, 5.9/9) and ABC (5.5 million, 3.3/5).
