Chad Anchors on Channel 12

Bengals receiver Chad Johnson anchors sports during the 6 p.m. news today on Channel 12. Can you tell it’s the last day for November sweeps?

Amazing problems
So why so all the screw ups on “The Amazing Race?” Two weeks in a row “production errors” resulted in drained batteries in the racers’ SUVs? Cameras were left on in the vehicles, CBS says. Both times the car trouble resulted in the teams (Weavers, Linzes) coming in last. Both times the episodes ended without an elimination. A coincidence?
Here’s how “TAR” will play out: One of the final four families will be eliminated next Tuesday. Three advance to the 2-hour finale on Dec. 13, with one of three eliminated at the end of the first hour that night.

PBS Rocks
While you’re watching “Lost” tonight, TiVo the Cream reunion on “Great Performances” (9 p.m. Ch 48) or “Dave Matthews Band: Weekend on the Rocks” (9 p.m., Ch 54) to watch after sweeps end tonight.

Over the Threshhold
Or make that, “Threshold” is over. USA Today says CBS canceled “Threshold” after low ratings in its first and only airing at 10 p.m. Tuesday on Nov. 22. That’s why it didn’t air last night.

I think CBS handles their screw ups all wrong. They should take responsibility and credit those teams with any lost time. Actually, there shouldn't be any screw ups in the first place.
Lost is freaking awesome!!!

I agree. I know it's a race and anything can happen but a team shouldn't be penalized for something out of their control, especially if it's caused by the production crew. If something like that happens the other teams should be told to wait or at least stop where they are.

One of these days I'll watch Lost, too late to start now. I'd just be lost...
