Brooke and Robbie's dominance on The Amazing Race was brief and their downfall, steep. After winning the penultimate leg, only to learn that they had to continue straight into the first four-team finale, the wrestlers were eliminated in fourth place midway through the final leg. Adding insult to injury: They were cut right before doing a Roadblock, and their frenemies Amy and Maya won. "It was pretty hard to watch. We didn't expect it to play out that way," Brooke tells TVGuide.com. "We made it way farther than we could've ever imagined. We're very proud of ourselves. I think we played the game the way we wanted to." Yes, that means reneging on U-Turn deals. See why they did that and if they really had it out for Amy and Maya.
If there was one mistake Adam and Bethany made on The Amazing Race finale, it might have been not strategizing about the Roadblocks. "When we got to the last challenge, it said whoever didn't do the first [Roadblock] had to do the second one and I read what it was, my heart dropped," Bethany tells TVGuide.com. "Adam is so much better at the memory stuff than I am." The surfers ended up in third place, but completing the race they did was a victory in and of itself — and not just because Bethany has one arm. Find out why below.
Misti and Jim fell short of not only winning The Amazing Race, but their goal of setting the mark for most leg victories in a single season. Though they won a season-leading five legs, the dentists also made some pretty big blunders along the way, which they attribute to pressure. "It was a relief to have it over with because we felt a lot of pressure," Misti tells TVGuide.com. "There was such an expectation, at least with our close friends and families, for us to win. The prior episodes were a lot more fun, obviously, because we were winning most of those!" Check out what else they have to say about the final leg, the two biggest things that surprised them and more.
Phil Keoghan, Amy, Maya
Friday's Amazing Race finale was pretty sweet. Food scientists and PhD students Amy and Maya, who specialize in candy and ice cream, came from behind, thanks to the four-team finale twist, to become the third all-female team to win the $1 million — and the fourth team to do so without having won a leg prior to the finale. "It's pretty surreal," Amy tells TVGuide.com. "You never know what's going to happen. I think just because we're not physically intimidating and because of what we do, other teams definitely underestimated us." See what else they have to say about their victory, what they'll do with the money and if they really have a beef with Brooke and Robbie.
Another late-night host bid adieu Friday night as Craig Ferguson ended his run as the host of The Late Late Show. Much like the show itself, Ferguson's final hour was quirky and low-key.
"If they had done more of that, I probably wouldn't have quit," he said after he received a rousing applause from the in-studio audience and thanked the fans for their ...

After 25 seasons, there are still some firsts on The Amazing Race. Phil Keoghan threw down two major curveballs last week: Not only did teams have to immediately continue onto the final leg, but for the first time, four teams will race in the final, with one unlucky pair to be eliminated during the middle of the last leg.

"We're not a show that's ever had to go to a place of jump the shark and do something that's so off base from what people expect that it affects the show," Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "This particular twist seemed to work well without affecting the format and I think it makes the last leg more ...

What can we expect when Gotham returns? — Matty
Even though Gordon will be working a new gig at Arkham Asylum, it won't take him long to make a new friend: Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin), who, despite being a bit different from her comic book counterpart, is one of the good guys. "She doesn't fall into the corrupt Gotham world," Baccarin says. "She wants to make it a better place." Because she shares that mentality with Gordon, they become a natural pair. "They have this immediate connection... based on just how insane everything is around them," she says. "It's the beginning of a really great, great friendship." But now that Gordon's fiancée skipped town, could that "friendship" become more? "There's definitely chemistry — so I'm not going to say no!" Baccarin teases.
