amazing-race-season-25-cast

It appears that CBS is continuing their mandate to create more cross-brand synergy between their shows. On the heels of Survivor: San Juan del Sur casting former racers, the Amazing Race has tapped Whitney Duncan and Keith Tollefson from Survivor: South Pacific.

They’re not the only familiar faces. The milestone 25th season of The Amazing Race includes pro surfer Bethany Hamilton, famous for losing an arm during a shark attack, and TNA pro wrestling stars Brooke Adams and Robbie Strauss, better known as Miss Tessmacher and Robbie E to their fans.

The Race kicked off in May with the first ever public start from Times Square in New York City where Phil Keoghan introduced a new game-changing element, “The Save.” The team-that finishes first in the premiere episode will be awarded “The Save,” which they can use to rescue themselves if they come in last on a leg and face elimination. Teams this season will travel through eight countries and twenty cities.

The Amazing Race moves to a new night, Fridays at 8pm this Fall, starting September 26. Check out the teams below.

Survivor is bringing back the Blood vs Water twist for Season 29. This time though, all the castaways have never played the game before. With that being said, there are several familiar faces including Amazing Race alums (the Twinsies), former MLB player John Rocker and Miss Michigan.

Also included in the bunch is a gay couple who are dancers. Clearly, CBS is in love with Broadway performers after casting BB’s Frankie Grande.

Initially, Exile Island wasn’t part of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur, but the show lost one pair after a medical checkup just days before filming began in Nicaragua. Check out the ones who made the cut below and weigh in on which ones are your favorites. There are a couple of certifiable hotties among the bunch. Survivor 29 premieres on CBS with a special 90-minute episode on Sept. 24 at 8pm.

Neil Patrick Harris has proven himself a very capable awards show host. But can the former How I Met Your Mother actor pull off a nightly late night talk show? According to the 40-year-old that was almost a possibility.

Harris revealed to Howard Stern that CBS president Les Moonves approached him about taking over a late-night slot. Harris explains he rejected both offers because he didn’t want to get “bored.”

“I don’t have any interest in doing ‘monologue, commercial, sketch, guest, guest musical act, goodnight,’” he tells Stern, adding “It’s still nightly. You’re still coming up with the same content and now you’re just getting bitter that no one’s watching it.”

Stephen Colbert you’re welcome. The Comedy Central host took over David Letterman’s gig after Letterman announced his retirement. Neil Patrick did however pitch another idea to Moonves. Find out what it is below.

CBS announces its new fall schedule on Wednesday, May 14 but revealed the fates for a handful of shows that hadn’t been renewed or canceled yet. Most of the on-the-bubble shows received bad news with exception to The Mentalist which received a seventh season. With the series-long Red John arc resolved during this season, I fully expected the Simon Baker drama to end. I guess I was wrong. Find out the casualties below.

halle-berry-extant

Following in Sandra Bullock’s Gravity footsteps, Halle Berry plays a female astronaut in the CBS drama Extant. While Bullock faced isolation, Berry finds herself not alone while in outer space. She plays Molly Woods who returns to earth after a year long mission. Upon returning, she finds out she’s pregnant but by who or should I say what?

As the government starts snooping around her life, her young son starts saying some very strange things. “I put the family in the spaceship so they’d be safe … from extinction” in reference to a drawing he made.

The series comes from Steven Spielberg and is scheduled to premiere on the eye network on Wednesday, July 9. Check out the first promo below.

Meg Ryan Tapped As The Next Bob Saget

meg-ryan-how-i-met-your-dad

Once again, Meg Ryan is playing a character named Sally. As any rom-com viewer knows, the 52-year-old famously played the titular lead in the classic When Harry Met Sally.

This time around, Ryan will voice the “future Sally” in the potential CBS sitcom, How I Met Your Dad. Greta Gerwig will play the present-day Sally. Much like Bob Saget in How I Met Your Mother, Meg will narrate the show and never be seen on the spinoff.

If the network picks up the series, CBS might not be the only place you can catch Ryan this Fall. She’s executive producing and starring in an untitled show for NBC. That series’ premise finds her as a single mother returning to a New York publishing house where she was once a top editor. Since she’s left, her former intern is now her boss. The show will follow Ryan’s character as she tries to balance her neurotic new boss with her teenaged kids, her soon-to-be ex-husband and his overbearing mother.

Do you think CBS was wise to cast Ryan in the narrator role? If not, who do you think should’ve snagged the role? Sound off below.
