TV viewers who missed The Cowboys’ first outing on their third run on “The Amazing Race” will have a chance to catch up before Sunday’s new episode.
Fans of “The Amazing Race” and “Survivor” will have an exclusive opportunity to catch up on their favorite reality competition series every Saturday night on TV Guide Network starting this Saturday, according to a news release.
TVGN will encore the most current episode of each series back-to-back with “The Amazing Race” at 7 p.m. Saturday and “Survivor” at 8 p.m. Saturday. New seasons of the two Emmy Award-winning series premiered this week on the CBS Television Network.
“TVGN loves to celebrate great television, and ‘The Amazing Race’ and ‘Suvivor’ are two of the best reality competition series of all time,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment and Media for TVGN, in a news release. “We’re excited to give fans a dedicated time slot on Saturday nights for weekly catch-ups, as these two shows return to CBS this month.”
The latest All-Star edition of “The Amazing Race,” featuring 11 returning fan-favorite teams in pursuit of the $1 million prize, premiered on Feb. 23, with new weekly episodes airing at 7 p.m. Sundays on CBS. “The Amazing Race” is hosted by Phil Keoghan. The 28th edition of “Survivor,” the longest-running reality competition series, premiered on Feb. 26, with new weekly episodes airing at 7 p.m. Wednesdays on CBS. “Survivor” is hosted by Jeff Probst.
As previously reported, Oklahoma cowboy brothers Cord McCoy, 33, a Tupelo cowboy, and Jet McCoy, 34, an Ada rancher, are back for a third globe-trotting trek in the latest all-star edition of the Emmy-winning reality show.
This season, which marks the 24th race around the world for the series, features some of the most memorable duos. Eleven all-star teams are back for another chance to win “The Amazing Race”; along with The Cowboys, returning teams include fan favorites The Globetrotters, Dave & Connor, Brendon & Rachel, and more.
Teams will be put to the test as they travel through four continents and nine countries, spanning more than 35,000 miles. The race will take them on a mission high above the city in Guangzhou, China, rappelling down the roaring rapids of the Kiansom Waterfall in Malaysia, fighting with Gladiators in Rome, Italy and fueling up vehicles in Sri Lanka.
The McCoy brothers finished in second place on “The Amazing Race” Season 16 and sixth place on the all-star Season 18.
Although they are the only team to survive a non-elimination, complete a speed bump and place first in a leg following a last-place finish, The Cowboys are best known for their unfailingly positive and gentlemanly attitudes, even in defeat, and unshakable unity as a team. They’ve done Oklahoma proud the previous two times they represented the Sooner State on “The Amazing Race.”
