Last fall’s edition of Survivor teamed former competitors with friends/family members. The ratings declined. Now, CBS is trying pairs of contestants again. Will the ratings fall lower or rise? Either way, the show’s already been renewed through cycle 30 for this spring.
Jeff Probst returns as host of the San Juan del Sur edition. Two teams of nine compete and are made up of Nadiya Anderson, Natalie Anderson, Josh Canfield, Alec Christy, Drew Christy, Jeremy Collins, Val Collins, Reed Kelly, Julie McGee, Jon Misch, Keith Nale, Wes Nale, Missy Payne, John Rocker, Jaclyn Schultz, Dale Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, and Baylor Wilson.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
