The season premier is Sunday! And could it be that it is going to FINALLY be in HD this season? Looks like no The promo during the Superbowl was in full 16x9 format - including footage of some challenges, which got my hopes up (also available on CBS's website Amazing Race Video - The Amazing Race 16 - Promo - CBS.com ). But the footage from the first episode after the promo appears to be in 4:3. Really sad since they go to such amazing places. Still an excellent show though. Looking forward to another season.
