Will Survivor Survive
September 25

I believe the granddaddy of all reality shows is showing signs of age. "Survivor: China" , the 15th edition, debuted last Thursday to not only the lowest ratings of a season premiere of Survivor, but down from "Survivor: Fiji" as well.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

"Survivor: China" was still the top program on broadcast TV on Thursday, averaging 15.1 million viewers and a 4.9 rating/15 share between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., according to preliminary estimates released Friday by Nielsen Media Research. But "Survivor" dropped 25% in adults 18-49 compared with last year's "Survivor: Cook Islands" (18 million, 6.5/20) as well as the spring's "Survivor: Fiji" (16.4 million, 5.7/15).

And being the most honest opinion column out there, there are a few reasons why:

1. It's the same darn show. Nothing about the show has really changed since 2000. Exotic locale...check. 16 players...check. Reward challenge, immunity challenge...faux drama, tribal council...and we are out. Big deal.

2. Pretty People Syndrome rules here. The casting department at Survivor have picked very photogenic people here. Ashley Massaro, a former WWE wrestler/diva has been naked. The men are eye candy....and no one cares.

3. Pirate Master has killed the interest for this show. We knew that summer show was going to be a bomb, but it was so bad with the "Survivor on A Boat" concept that it was banished to the internet. Combine that With "On The Lot", and an Apprentice with celebs and Mark Burnett's stock has gone down considerably.

What do you do with a show like this? With new episodes of Ugly Betty, My Name is Earl and the Office...this show is in trouble...deep trouble.

I said this last year, and I will say it again...cancel the show now. No one cares if this show survives or not.
