CBS' "The Amazing Race" winds up its eighth season this month, and the globetrotting show's title is an apt description of its improbable journey to three straight Emmys. Yet for co-creators/producers Elise Doganieri and husband Bertram Van Munster, the race never ends -- they're already up and running on Season 9. "I travel 250,000 air miles a year for the show," Doganieri said. "I think I age five years for every season."

Crew members from the new Los Angeles-based reality TV show "The Great Escape" walked off the job after talks between producers and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees broke down on Friday. IATSE, which represents technical workers who operate behind the scenes on films and TV shows, has called a strike against the TNT series, alleging producers have blocked efforts to bring union benefits to the show's crew. "By obstructing the IATSE's organizing efforts, the union has declared the show and company off-limits for its members," IATSE said in a statement Saturday morning.
