"The Amazing Race" Delivers This Edition's Best Performance in Viewers
THE AMAZING RACE 10, with best friends Tyler and James first to cross the finish line, posted double-digit percentage increases over last spring's finale of "The Amazing Race 9," according to preliminary Nielsen Live Plus same-day ratings for Sunday, Dec. 10.
Editors Note: Due to late running football in most East Coast and Central time zone markets, ratings are tentative and subject to change.
At 8:30 PM, THE AMAZING RACE 10 finale (8.0/12, 12.90m) delivered a 5.0/11 in adults 25-54 and 4.0/09 in adults 18-49. If the ratings hold, this is the best delivery for any edition of THE AMAZING RACE 10 in households and viewers and matches the second best performance in both adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.
Compared to the finale of "The Amazing Race 9," (5/17/06 from 8:00-10:00PM), THE AMAZING RACE 10 finale was up +51% in households (from 5.3/08), +25% in adults 25-54 (from 4.0/10), +18% in adults 18-49 (from 3.4/09), +13% in adults 18-34 (2.7/07 from 2.4/07) and added +3.91m viewers (from 8.99m, +43%).
