If you’re tuning into “The Amazing Race” on Wednesday, be warned: It’s on the sidelines this week. As previously reported, the show will not air on Wednesday, May 15, which will be all “Survivor” all the time for its 38th season finale and usual reunion episode.
While the preview after last week’s “Race” episode made no mention of the one-week break, Season 31 will resume next Wednesday, May 22 with two episodes, starting in “Survivor”‘s vacated 8 o’clock slot. Those installments are the fifth and sixth legs of the season. “Race” will air at 8/7c for the remainder of the season. It’s unclear if there will be any more double episodes the rest of the way, as CBS has not released its listings for the next month, but only one episode is scheduled for May 29 at the moment.
“Race” will need a few more doubles to ensure its entire season is Emmy eligible this year. Rule changes means hanging episodes now have to air by the start of nominations voting (June 10 this year) instead of the the end (June 24 this year); however, all June episodes can be eligible if shows give advance online access to academy members by the May 31 deadline.
“The Amazing Race” returns Wednesday, May 22 at 8/7c on CBS.
