Who'll win at this year's Emmys? Who knows? It's the only major awards show where the old guard and new blood clash on an annual basis, and among the few things you can bet on in this unpredictable process are that Michael Douglas will win for his Liberace impersonation (ditto his HBO movie Behind the Candelabra) and that host Neil Patrick Harris will do his damnedest to make CBS's live Emmys telecast (8/7c, 5 Pacific) as enjoyable as the Tonys.
The Amazing Race
The Amazing Race is about to embark on its 23rd sprint around the world, and host Phil Keoghan will welcome11 new teams on 35,000 mile, $1 million journey.
The Emmy Award-winning series will bring back the Double Express Pass the series introduced last season. Whoever is the first team to check in at the first pit stop will earn two Express Passes, one which they keep and another which they must give to a different team by the end of the fifth leg of the race.
CBS has announced premiere dates for its new and returning fall shows, including How I Met Your Mother, The Crazy Ones and NCIS.
Things get awfully bloody on Friday with the explosive first-season finale of Cinemax's violent noir Banshee (10/9c), in which shootouts and long-simmering feuds leave such a gory trail that it almost puts to shame a new episode of Starz' reliably visceral Spartacus: War of the Damned (9/8c).

ABC has been running a series of ads lately for The Neighbors quoting TV critics who trashed the show when it premiered in September but have since changed their mind or at least lightened up about this harmless time-waster. I was not among those quoted, for good reason. I'm hardly a fan, but even back in the fall, I knew there were far worse sitcoms to get riled up about — including elsewhere on Wednesday (NBC's DOA Animal Practice and the presumably soon-to-vanish mediocrity Guys With Kids) — and my main objection, then as now, is its occupation of prime real estate between two infinitely better comedies, The Middle and Modern Family.
The Amazing Race is about to embark on its 22nd trip around the world and host Phil Keoghan is welcoming 11 new teams of two for the 30,000 mile journey.
Those teams include country group Stealing Angels band members Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Kuhle, professional hockey players and brothers Bates and Anthony Battaglia and a pair of hard-hitting roller derby moms Mona Egender and Beth Bandimere. Teams will travel through five continents and ...
Larry Hagman fans will be able to see the dearly departed Dallas star on the small screen this spring.
Hagman, who died in November, will be featured on the CBS special I Get That A Lot, in which celebrities masquerade as ordinary people and then act like they're not stars when they're inevitably recognized. The actor filmed his segment in September, and appears as a salesman offering free samples of barbecue sauce, according to the network.

Question: I have a question regarding whose idea was it to make Sundays packed full with TV shows? Revenge is now on after Once Upon a Time and goes against The Good Wife and The Mentalist — oh and of course football! I only have so much DVR space and time to use up and there are days I want to watch football instead of the shows. I did see that CBS changed the start times due to football, but to put Revenge and Once on the same night? Come on, man, that is not cool! Your thoughts? — Amy
