What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, the Survivor TV show is hosted (as always) by Jeff Probst. In this 41st edition, aka “Survivor 41,” 18 new players are relocated to the Mamanuca Islands of Fiji and are divided into three tribes — Luvu, Ua, and Yase (the Fijian words for flood, wave, and lightning). The castaway competitors are Eric Abraham (51), Heather Aldret (52), Erika Casupanan (32), Genie Chen (46), Ricard Foyé (31), Xander Hastings (20), Evvie Jagoda (28), Danny McCray (33), Naseer Muttalif (37), Deshawn Radden (26), Brad Reese (50), Jairus “JD” Robinson (20), Tiffany Seely (47), Sydney Segal (26), Shantel “Shan” Smith (34), David Voce (35), Liana Wallace (20), and Sara Wilson (24).
Season 41 Ratings
The 41st season of Survivor averages a 0.98 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.91 million viewers. Compared to season 39 (which aired in Fall 2019), that’s down by 18% in the demo and down by 8% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how Survivor stacks up against other CBS TV shows.
We don’t have to wonder if CBS will cancel or renew Survivor for season 42. The series has already been renewed for Spring 2022 and I would be surprised if it weren’t renewed beyond that.
