The Amazing Race To Premiere Wednesday September 5th
By Reality TV World staff, 08/26/2001
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.
"Frankly, it had to do with 'West Wing,'" Moonves said of the scheduling decision during the annual Television Critics Association press tour Tuesday. "We'll be able to get a two-week jump on it and we feel, like 'Survivor,' once you see one of 'The Amazing Races' you're going to be back."
