CBS Pulls the Trigger: 'Amazing Race' In, 'Viva' Out
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- "Viva Laughlin's" luck has run out while "The Amazing Race" is getting an early return date.

The 12th season of the Emmy-award winning reality series is set to roll out on Sunday, November 4 at 8:00/7:00c. A repeat of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" will fill said hour on October 28, sending "Viva" home after just two episodes.

"Viva's" 1.2 adults 18-49 rating last night marked the worst first-run series performance on the network since "Armed & Famous's" final broadcast on 1/24/07 (1.4 rating).

It's not clear how many "Viva" installments will remain on the shelf. (Update: Production had been underway on the show's ninth episode, industry insiders later confirmed. It's not clear if work will continue on said installment or the rest of its initial 13-episode order.)

Hugh Jackman, John Palermo, Bob Lowry, Paul Telegdy and Peter Bowker were the executive producers of the series, which came from Bob Lowry Productions, BBC Worldwide Productions and Seed Productions in association with CBS Paramount Network Television and Sony Pictures Television.
