This weekend on Utah TV: Utah father-son team takes off on "The Amazing Race"

And they're off! Eleven teams - including Utahns David and Connor O'Leary - race from Los Angeles to Bora Bora in the season premiere of The Amazing Race (Sunday, 7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2).

I like the O'Leary's. I'm rooting for them. And I remain a fan of this show.
