The Emmy award-winning reality television competition is on for another season with same host from Season 1, Phil Keoghan. Begun in 2001, what’s behind the staying power of this game of wit, strength, mind, agility and endurance lie on its exciting and competitive challenges; and a right mix of contestants with attitude and personality.
The Amazing Race features several teams of two, with a pre-existing relationship, in a race around the world and a shot at a one million dollars prize.
From the CBS press release:
The Amazing Race 15 will premiere with a special two-hour broadcast on Sunday, September 27 at 8PM ET/PT. Beginning October 4, The Amazing Race will serve as the lead-in for Three Rivers, a new scripted drama that will air in the Sundays at 9PM ET/PT timeslot.
Last September, The Amazing Race continued its Annual Primetime Emmy Awards dominance when it captured the Outstanding Reality-competition Program award for the sixth year in a row — making it the only show to win the award since the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences first created the category in 2002.
The win raised The Amazing Race’s Emmy award total to 11 since it was first eligible in 2002, however it represented the only win out of the six nominations the show had received for last year’s awards. Overall, The Amazing Race has received 26 nominations since it premiered in 2001.
