What’s This TV Show About?
A CBS competitive reality TV series, Survivor is hosted by Jeff Probst. Season 36, Survivor: Ghost Island, splits the 20 new castaways into two groups of 10. The action centers on bad decisions of past players. The new contestants can be dispatched to a separate haunted island the networks says is, “…filled with Survivor relics from the previous 35 seasons of the show.” Ghost Island contains idols and advantages from past locations including Brazil, China, Africa, and Australia. Now, the new players have to struggle to reverse the curses their forerunners faced.
This time out on Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands, the tribes are the Naviti Tribe (purple) and the Malolo Tribe (orange. Competing for the Naviti Tribe are Angela Perkins, 42; Chelsea Townsend, 24; Desiree Afuye, 21; Kellyn Bechtold, 31; Morgan Ricke, 29; Bradley Kleihege, 26; Chris Noble, 27; Domenick Abbate, 38; Sebastian Noel, 22; and Wendell Holland, 33. The Malolo tribe players are Jenna Bowman, 23; Laurel Johnson, 29; Libby Vincek, 24; Stephanie Gonzalez, 26; Stephanie Johnson, 34; Brendan Shapiro, 41; Donathan Hurley, 26; Jacob Derwin, 22; James Lim, 24; and Michael Yerger, 18.
Season 36 Ratings
The 36th season of Survivor is averaging a 1.70 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.25 million viewers. Compared to season 34 (Spring 2017, Game Changers), that’s even in the demo and up by 3% in viewers. Find out how Survivor stacks up against the other CBS TV shows.
Although it premiered with similar numbers to last year, it is still too early to use the ratings to predict whether CBS will cancel or renew Survivor for season 37. All that aside, even though the ratings have dropped over the years, I don’t think we’ll ever see a surprise cancellation of this King of the Reality TV Shows (unless there is some scandal). Once the ratings approach a level the network won’t tolerate, if format tweaks don’t work, they’ll decide to retire it for a while, and promote the “final season” within an inch of its life. Until that time, I’ll seek supper somewhere else, keep a hungry eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Survivor cancellation or renewal alerts.
