‘Amazing Race’ bumps Juno’s

TORONTO (CP) _ The adventure reality show the "Amazing Race" is forcing Juno planners to do some major schedule juggling.

In most parts of the country, viewers will see a pre-taped version of Canada’s premier music awards show.

CTV says that a two-hour "Amazing Race" special is bumping the Junos to 10 p.m. in Ontario and Quebec and as late as 11 p.m. in the Maritimes.

Out west, the show will be broadcast much earlier, hitting airwaves at 7 p.m. in Alberta and 9 p.m. in British Columbia and Manitoba.

CTV spokesman Scott Henderson says the scheduling chaos is meant to allow a simulcast of CBS’s broadcast of a two-hour special of the "Amazing Race", which airs at different times across Canada.

Henderson says the popular reality show routinely draws up to two million viewers for CTV and will guarantee a solid audience once the awards gala hits eastern provinces.

Two years ago it was the campy soap opera "Desperate Housewives" that caused scheduling headaches for CTV.

It ended up bumping the Junos show by a half hour in all time zones.
