There are few certainties in life. The sun rises in the east. Two plus two equals four. Ryan Seacrest is working harder than you are. And with just one exception, The Amazing Race can’t lose the Emmy race for Outstanding Reality Show Competition.
Yes indeed, since the Emmys first introduced the category in 2003, CBS’ globetrotting adventure series has won eight times — only relinquishing the statuette once, in 2010, to Bravo’s Top Chef.
Can TAR continue its domination in 2012? Its old nemesis Top Chef will attempt another surpsise attack, while a pair of perennial bridesmaids — Dancing With the Stars (nominated for the seventh straight year) and Project Runway (now on nomination No. 8) — will try to break their respective losing streaks.
Rounding out the field are So You Think You Can Dance (in the running for the second year in a row), and one newcomer, NBC’s buzzy singing competition The Voice (which bumped American Idol off the list of nominees for the first time in the history of the category).
