Reality TV Airdate Schedule News - August 2001
NBC is looking to strike a little 'Fear' into the premiere of CBS' highly-touted action reality series 'The Amazing Race.' The network will use an original episode of hot shock reality series 'Fear Factor' to combat 'Race's' Sept. 5 debut.
CBS has announced that two shows will jumpstart the fall season for CBS -- starting with the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced reality show 'The Amazing Race,' which will debut on Wednesday Sept. 5 at 9 p.m., followed a week later by the supernatural thriller 'Wolf Lake' at 10 p.m. 'Race' will debut the same night as NBC's 'Lost,' which CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves calls a coincidence.
The action on "Big Brother 2" has become a little too racy for the 8 p.m. hour for the Tiffany network.
