Just two weeks after Bill Paxton’s death, Training Day is being sent to Saturdays, paving the way for The Amazing Race to make its season debut.
CBS announced Friday night that the latest edition of the Emmy-winning reality series will take over the 10 p.m. Thursday slot effective March 30. That sends the adaptation of the Denzel Washington film to Saturdays at 9 p.m., where the final seven episodes of its first season will air, beginning April 8.
Considering the death of co-lead Paxton and low ratings, it’s likely those could be the last episodes produced of the series, which also stars Justin Cornwell and Julie Benz.
The network also revealed that once MacGyver concludes its freshman season, Undercover Boss will return, taking over the Friday night timeslot for a run of four new episodes starting April 28 at 8 p.m.
