CBS will be bringing back its two hit Sunday night reality shows next year as the network has renewed both The Amazing Race’ and ‘Undercover Boss,’ Deadline.com is reporting. Both shows have pulled in significant numbers this season, which prompted the network to bring them both back.
The 7-time Emmy-winning ‘Amazing Race’ will air its 19th cycle next fall. It’s last fall premiere pulled in nearly 12 million viewers, and saw a three percent increase in the ever-important 18-49 demographic. Jerry Bruckheimer will serve as an executive producer again for the next season, along with Elise Doganieri, Jonathan Littman, Bertram van Munster and Mark Vertullo.
‘Undercover Boss,’ the highest-rated new show last season, will air its third cycle next fall. While the show has seen a slip in ratings, it still averaged 12.3 million viewers this season. Chris Carlson, Eli Holzman and Stephen Lambert are executive producing the series.
