Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Survivor TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a 25th season?

Why do people still watch this GARBAGE?!?! This show is pretty much SOLELY responsible for the mainstay of this reality show bullcrap that is everywhere on TV. I HATE THIS SHOW AND WOULD ONLY WATCH THIS IF GOD TOLD ME TO. Just think of all the good scripted shows that have been cancelled because their well-deserved ratings have gone to this crap for 10+ years. End Survivor please.

I find “Survivor” interesting because it matches people up whom would never be paired. It’s a social game; not to mention the first successful reality show. Scripted shows are annoying and beyond boring. In “Survivor” you never know what will happen next. By far the best show I’ve seen.
