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 43rd edition, 18 new players are relocated to the beautiful islands of Fiji. They must form a society and adapt to their physical and social surroundings, forcing players to choose between personal risk and reward, while navigating the complex social game and attempting to forge alliances to last another day. The castaways are split into three tribes — Vesti, Baka, and Coco. In the Vesi Tribe (Red), there’s Cody Assenmacher, Jesse Lopez, Dwight Moore, Nneka Ejere, Justine Brennan, and Noelle Lambert. Baka Tribe (Yellow) is made up of Mike “Gabler” Gabler, Owen Knight, Sami Layadi, Elie Scott, Morriah Young, and Jeanine Zheng. The Coco Tribe (Blue) members are James Jones, Ryan Medrano, Geo Bustamante, Lindsay Carmine, Karla Cruz Godoy, and Cassidy Clark. In the end, only one will remain to claim the title of Sole Survivor and win a $1 million prize.
Season 43 Ratings
The 43rd season of Survivor averaged a 0.71 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5 million viewers. Compared to season 41 (which aired in Fall 2021), that’s down by 23% in the demo and down by 10% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (includes 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 Survivor for the moment. It’s already been renewed for season 44 which is expected to debut in early 2023. I’ll update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on Survivor cancellation or renewal news.
