As he continues to pedal his bike across the country, “The Amazing Race” host Phil Keoghan got some good news Thursday: The reality skein is officially back this fall.
Keoghan broke the news himself, via his “Phil Keoghan Rides Across America” Twitter site.
“Race’s” pickup was never really in doubt, given its continued solid performance as a Sunday night staple. The latest edition of “Race” is averaging 10.5 million viewers and a 3.4 rating/8 share among adults 18-49. Show is also big with adults 25-54, averaging a 4.3/10.
“Race” has won every broadcast ratings measure for four of the past five telecasts.
The show will enter its 15th cycle in the fall, and continues to dominate at the Emmy Awards, winning the top reality competition prize for the past six years.
Keoghan, who’s been raising awareness for MS via his cross-country bike trip, is riding through Nebraska.
“Amazing Race” comes from Jerry Bruckheimer TV, Earthview Inc., ABC Studios and Amazing Race Prods. Exec producers are Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Hayma Screech Washington and Bruckheimer.
