TORONTO, Aug. 10, 2015 /CNW/ - As Canada's #1 summer series THE AMAZING RACE CANADA nears its Season 3 midway point, CTV announced today that for a second year in a row it will produce and broadcast a one-hour, mid-season, after-show special, AFTER THE RACE. Taped in front of a studio audience from CTV's headquarters in Toronto, AFTER THE RACE airs Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO, immediately following Episode 7 of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA in most markets (check local listings). Hosted by TSN's James Duthie (@tsnjamesduthie), AFTER THE RACE reunites all of this season's eliminated teams, and features a look back at the most talked-about moments from the first seven episodes.
One of Canada's most celebrated sportscasters, as well as a self-professed super-fan of the hit series, the Canadian Screen Award and three-time Gemini Award-winning Duthie returns to talk to the eliminated teams about their experience on The Amazing Race Canada, and gain personal insight into the highs and lows of their incredible journey. The eliminated teams confirmed so far to appear in AFTER THE RACE are: Max and Elias, Susan and Sharnjit, Dana and Amanda, and Hamilton and Michaelia, with an additional team or teams to be announced following their elimination.
In addition to the racers' chats with Duthie, and questions from audience members, fans at home can also get in on the action by submitting questions now to CTV through Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #AfterTheRace.
"From that first challenge I got to do with the racers at TSN, this season has been really fun and exciting," said Duthie. "As a fan of the show, you have a lot of questions as you watch. We want to know why teams made certain moves or decisions. AFTER THE RACE is my chance to ask those questions and get those answers."

The most-watched television program in Canada this summer, final data confirms THE AMAZING RACE CANADA's average audience for the first three episodes of Season 3 is 2.5 million total viewers, with an impressive 1.1 million A25-54 viewers.
On the next episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA (Wednesday, Aug. 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO), teams continue to race to Sudbury, Ontario, where the drama continues and the trauma gets critical. The Detour forces teams to take the plunge and go deep underground.
All-new episodes of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO. Episodes 1-4 are also now streaming on CraveTV™, with new episodes available a week after the broadcast premiere. Previous seasons are also now streaming on CraveTV.
