Tonight in Prime Time
'The Amazing Race'
Although it was tough to see last week's eliminated team go (no spoilers for those still playing "catch up," but come on people!), we're now down to the final four teams in what looks to be a tight race to the finish line for this long-running, multi Emmy-winning reality competition. I'm rooting for border-patrol agents Art and J.J. Go boys! Two-hour season finale, 8 p.m. Sunday on CBS (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
