Amazing Race's Jeff and Jordan: We Like to Make Mistakes

Jordan Lloyd won Big Brother 11, while Jeff Schroeder won fan favorite, but the couple didn't come close to winning The Amazing Race. After a bad cab ride left them in last place two weeks ago, the pair struggled to keep up before getting eliminated Sunday following yet another mistake-ridden leg. "We were trying to keep it positive, but this leg, if everything could've gone wrong, I think it did," Jeff, 31, tells us. "We started late and we tried our best. A lot of people made mistakes this leg, so if we had made the right decisions, we may have had a chance." See what else the two have to say about their last hurrah, what was wrong with their game plan, and if Jordan, 23, knows who Joan of Arc is now. To Read More Click Here .

'The Amazing Race' Pit Stop Fiver: That Part of France Where Champagne Is Made

This week's episode of The Amazing Race keeps us in France, but unlike last week--where low-flying planes and explosions were the norm--we'll have a considerably quieter leg.

We're headed to the French city of Reims this week, one of the centers of champagne production--and a very important city in the country's history. So, with the help of trusty Wikipedia and the spoiler forums, here's five bits that will set you up for Sunday's leg. You might've guessed I'll talk about champagne. To Read More Click Here .

Interview: Joe and Heidi from 'The Amazing Race 16'

I may not have always been fond of Joe and Heidi from this season of The Amazing Race--from the first week I joined the "they're too confident" side of the fence--but later weeks made me realize that what they don't have in popularity, they make up with their intensity in running the race. After all, they were in second place at one point. But they were eliminated in France after being U-turned by detectives Louie and Michael--they figured they needed the humble pie, and it seems they did. I got to talk to Joe and Heidi early today, and I think we covered everything--the U-turn, the Morse code task, and the knee. Oh, and gastronomic delights in Germany, too. To Read More Click Here .

Amazing Race's Joe and Heidi: Morse Code Challenge Was "an Impossible Task"

A Morse code task spelled doom for Joe and Heidi Wang on The Amazing Race after the pair was U-Turned by detectives Louie and Michael, forcing them to the code-deciphering challenge in the World War I-inspired Detour. "No other team did it, so that was the end of us because we had to do two," Joe, 42, tells us. "That was an impossible task for us - not to say that no one can do it. I'm sure military-trained individuals would be able to do it." Find out how long Joe and Heidi, 37, toiled with the recording's endless beeps, what may have affected their guesses and more.

The Oscars were watched by 41.3 million viewers, improving 13 percent over last year's audience and posting significant gains for the second year in a row, according to Nielsen estimates.

The half-hour red carpet show drew its largest audience (25.1 million viewers) in three years. Fox's hourlong blocks of reruns of The Simpsons (4.9 million viewers) and Family Guy (5.6 million viewers) came in second for the night among 18-to-49-year-olds. CBS placed third in the demo, but drew the most viewers behind ABC. A new Amazing Race pulled in 8.5 million viewers, while repeats of Undercover Boss and Cold Case were watched by 6.5 million viewers and 5.4 million viewers, respectively.

THE AMAZING RACE 16 Episode 4 Photos "We Are No Longer In The Bible Belt" (Germany)

Check out photos of last night's episode of THE AMAZING RACE 16 Episode 4 "We Are No Longer In The Bible Belt" (Germany). SPOILER ALERT: the team that was eliminated was the Big Brother team but this was a non elimination leg of the race so they are still in it. Is it possible that the producers used this as a non elimintation leg because this team makes for great TV? Or am I being too paranoid? Episode Synopsis: Racers must navigate an unfamiliar and confusing train system without their teammates, take a dive over Hamburg and reunite for a nausea-inducing lesson in German gastronomy, onTHE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, March 7 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Interview: Monique and Shawne of 'The Amazing Race 16'

Another bad way to end your run on The Amazing Race: get stuck in a particular task and see every other team pass by you. That's what happened to "mompreneurs" Monique and Shawne: they got stuck in the Roadblock in Argentina. But, in their usual fashion, they never lost hope, and finished the rest of the tasks without grumbling or arguing. That gets a plus point for me. I figured you do a lot when you're a mompreneur, so it took me a while to talk to Monique and Shawne--but finally, we got to talk about their run on the race, their childrens' reactions, and that Roadblock.

The closing ceremonies of the Vancouver Winter Olympics gave NBC another ratings win Sunday night, and set up a strong debut for Jerry Seinfeld's new series, The Marriage Ref. The closing ceremonies averaged 23.3 million viewers, a 47 percent improvement over Torino's closing festivities in 2006 among adults 18-to-49.

Brothers & Sisters (8 million viewers) remained off its average, but did improve slightly from the previous week. An Extreme Makeover: Home Edition repeat pulled in 6.7 million viewers.

Amazing Race's Monique and Shawne: We Hated "That Stupid Wooden Horse"

Monique Pryor and Shawne Morgan are "mompreneurs," but cowgirls and polo players they are not. The lawyers, both 39, became the third team booted from The Amazing Race after encountering problems at both the lassoing Roadblock and the wooden-horse polo Detour. "It took awhile, but we were determined to get through it," Shawne tells us. "Our thing was that we weren't leaving until we finished. We didn't care if the sun went down. Phil was going to have to drag us off that field!" Find out why it was important for them to complete the leg, why they didn't change Detours earlier and more. To Read More Click Here .
