It's finale time! I hope most of you are still invested after the tragic Philimination of the Snowboarders last week. Sure, they were the easy favorites, but now you have to dig down and ask yourself who you really want to win. You all know Ernie is my TV...

"The Amazing Race" stays in Argentina this week. If you’re helping your kid with his geography homework, then let me give you some facts: Argentina is big enough for an 18-hour bus ride within its borders, big enough for the world’s highest...

This was a tough week on "The Amazing Race." The challenges were actually challenging, and the Express Pass didn’t solve anything. We also got some foreshadowing that wasn’t, some arguing, some crying and, well, the unquittable pyramid of...
