‘Amazing Race’ still running

CBS greenlights 13th season

The Amazing Race” isn’t slowing down.

CBS has greenlit production on a 13th cycle of the reality warhorse from exec producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Bert van Munster. Skein’s 12th edition is currently airing.

Quick pickup is a vindication for “Race,” which appeared to be fading in the ratings during its 11th outing earlier this year — but earned a pickup anyway.

The Eye planned to air the 12th cycle of “Race” next year, but when “Viva Laughlin” failed, CBS opted to sub in “Race” last month. It paid off: Helped by football, the nonscripted show notched its best premiere ratings since 2005.

Overall, the current cycle of “Race” has averaged 12 million viewers in its Sundays at 8 timeslot.

CBS alternative topper Ghen Maynard said the simplicity of the show’s format is what works so well.

“I like that it’s the best relationship show in reality,” he said. “It’s all real.”

Phil Keoghan hosts “Race,” which is produced by Bruckheimer Television and Earthview in association with ABC Television Studio. Jonathan Littman and Hayma Washington exec produce the show along with van Munster and Bruckheimer.
