    Combination of Mark Burnett's Eco Challenge and The Amazing Race in the outdoors. With 3 teams of 3 strangers problems automatically arise in how to strategically race. Luv the fact that its a new venue and new teams each week. Much better then TNT's The Hero.

    Like other snackable television like this, 72 Hours isn’t afraid of delivering everything you want, including not just a few reality competition tropes--but all of them.

    Sit through TNT’s “The Hero” and 72 Hours and REELZ’s “Race to the Scene” back-to-back, you realize how much the genre lives on the tired bone marrow of “Survivor” and "The Amazing Race."

    The game's the only thing in companion piece 72 Hours, which feels like an amped-up leg of The Amazing Race or a condensed version of Survivor if not its Eco-Challenge predecessor.
