CBS has scheduled an encore showing of the premiere of its new reality skein 'The Amazing Race.'
The network will repeat Wednesday's premiere episode Sunday at 8 p.m., immediately following '60 Minutes.' The move has been in the works for several weeks, but CBS declined to confirm the schedule change until Wednesday night, following the East Coast broadcast of 'Race.'
CBS said the encore was a one-time only strategy.
By putting 'Race' on again Sunday, CBS hopes to expose the show to a new set of eyeballs, while also giving viewers who opted to watch 'Fear Factor' a chance to get into 'Race.'
