Cowboys return to ‘Amazing Race’
The Cowboys are back.
Brothers Jet and Cord McCoy of Tupelo return to prime-time television for season 24 of the reality series “The Amazing Race,” which airs at 7 p.m. Sundays on CBS. The All-Star Edition’s premier is this Sunday.
“We continually hear from fans that they want their favorites back, and we listened to them,” host Phil Keoghan said in a recent interview.
