CBS Unveils "Amazing Race: All Stars" Teams

Colin and Christie won't be getting a second chance to run the Race, after all.

CBS has revealed the identities of all 11 teams on The Amazing Race: All Star Edition, scheduled to launch on February 18th at 8 pm ET/PT.

As expected, the list of players on this installment of The Amazing Race includes reality fame hounds Rob and Amber (their fourth time on a CBS reality series), favorites Charla and Mirna (Season 4) and Drew and Kevin (Season 1) and last season's Team Kentucky (David and Mary, how we've missed ye!) and the Beauty Queens (Dustin and Kandice).

Here's the full list of players, arranged by Season, for your amusement:

Season 1: Team Guido (Joe and Bill); Drew and Kevin
Season 2: Team Cha Cha Cha (Oswald and Danny); John and Jill
Season 3: Teri and Ian
Season 4: Charla and Mirna
Season 7: Uchenna and Joyce; Rob and Amber
Season 9: Eric and Danielle (and, no, they didn't run the Race together, rather it's Eric from the Frat Boys and Danielle from the Pinks)
Season 10: David and Mary; Dustin and Kandice

Hmmm. It's a weird mix of teams this time around. No Colin and Christie, as anticipated. In fact, there's no one up there from Amazing Race Seasons 5 or 6 (not to mention the much loathed Amazing Race: Family Edition, but no surprise there).

Hell, I was hoping to see Kris and Jon get another shot at the million bucks. After all, they lost out to Freddie and Kendra after a final challenge involving eating some pizza that time. Yes, pizza.

Damn. All I kept saying was "as long as Kris and Jon are there I'll be happy."

I have to go look up some of these people. I don't remember them.

Yeah for Kevin and Drew and Team Cha Cha Cha. Boo for Rob and Amber and Eric and Danielle. Also, as much as I love Uchenna and Joyce, I don't think former winners should get another shot.

It's All-Stars -- I think you have to have a former winner or the whole idea doesn't work. I'm just glad they went with Uchenna/Joyce rather than one of the many "young/hot/male" teams that have won.

I am sad there is no Kris and Jon, but ecstatic about Kevin and Drew. Bring on the All-Stars!
Oh no! I was really hoping that Kris and Jon and Colin and Christie would be in this one. At least they are giving Dustin and Kandice another shot. But Rob and Amber again? It was hard enough to stomach them the first time.

I'll admit it: I've never watched Amazing Race.

Unfortunately, it looks like I'm not about to start now. I've never been able to stomach much Rob Mariano and I'm certainly not going to subject myself to him on purpose even if I do get to see Ambuh in a bikini.

What's interesting is that Jill and John Vito are listed as "formerly dating" -- wonder if they've broken up, and if so, why they'd still race together.

Besides the famewhore angle, of course.

UGH. No more Rob-n-Amber!!!!! I am so sick of these two.

I would have loved to see more of Colin (and his hairy chest) and Christie. Forgot about Jon and Kris. They would have been better than some of these teams.

Rob and Amber... eewwwww... but than again CBS executives are geniuses... putting them in the all stars as the bad guys create drama for the show.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t
