Exclusive Television Encores on TVGN Kick Off After New Season Premieres on CBS




LOS ANGELES — Feb. 27, 2014 — 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 TVGN (TV Guide Network) starting March 1.


TVGN will encore the most current episode of each series back-to-back with THE AMAZING RACE at 8:00 PM, ET/PT and SURVIVOR at 9:00 PM, ET/PT. 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 SURVIVOR are two of the best reality competition series of all time,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment and Media, TVGN. “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 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 every Sunday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) 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 every Wednesday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.  SURVIVOR is hosted by Jeff Probst.



THE AMAZING RACE sends 11 teams on a trek around the world.  Each Team is comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another.  At every destination, each Team competes in a series of challenges — some mental and some physical — and when the tasks have been completed, they learn their next destination.  Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning at least $1 million. Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri and Mark Vertullo are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions.  THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.



Eighteen castaways will compete against each other on SURVIVOR for a $1 million prize, when the Emmy Award-winning series returns on Wednesdays on CBS Television Network. This edition of SURVIVOR, filmed in Cagayan, a province in the Philippines, will be themed “Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty.” The groupings of these tribes, each comprised of six castaways, reflect the distinguishing qualities that people bring to the game and test whether there is any truth to the pre-conceived notion that certain characteristics will help you win the game of SURVIVOR. All castaways will compete to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor. The show is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.
