    R U a Survivor fan?

    I have not watched it for several seasons now...just got tired of the 5 minutes of fame attitude... Tuned in last nite...just because nothing else on at that time...OMGosh!!! It is just so phony I cannot believe it is still on....here are some of my observations/questions........beards on men are well trimmed..how?,no under arm hair on women after all that time on "island"......the women running around in Victoria Secret underwear...but then at tribal council they have more than that on....and why does that council building always look the same ...... And the path to it...from "island" to "island" ...and they start out going and it is light out, they get there and it is pitch black, and where does the voted out person go to when they walk down that walkway into darkness.....really now......just reinforced my opinion of this and all "reality" tv...JMHO

    I still watch it for entertainment. All reality shows are phoney.
    It would get boring if they didnt spice the shows up a bit.

    No, don't watch it. But I'm SO ticked with CBS at the way they've jerked around The Good Wife I may stop watching CBS completely (except for Tues nite NCIS!) They moved TGW from a weeknight to Sunday and then do the endless preempting and changing times because of various sports. You can't record it easily cause you never know when it's going to start!! I'll bet they kill it off soon.

    ​I watched the first season and then it got all about politics and alliances and I haven't watched it since.

    I still watch Survivor and enjoy it for the most part. But I think all reality shows are beginning to become a bit overdone!

    I agree about moving "winner" type programs being shuffled around..... I hate all the sport per-emotion that takes place...I thought there were sport channels specifically for that. And the length of seasons keep getting shorter each year.....but really CBS has the best programs except for a "few"---which do you "hate" and wonder "why"

    Don't "hate" any, just don't watch that many on CBS. 60", sometimes Letterman, Person of Interest, Blue Bloods, and slowly switching over to The Talk from The View. And, oh yes....NCIS.....best of all!

    Big, big fan of Survivor, I don't think we've missed one episode since the beginning. Love the Amazing Race.

    I'm a retired court reporter and I really enjoy what was once Court TV I forget what station it is now, I just have the DVR set for interesting cases...

    We prefer reality over scripted TV for the most part, with the exception of being totally hooked on Downton Abbey.

    Discovery Channel is one of our favorite satellite channels because of all the reality programming...

    Just our preference..."Different Strokes for Different Folks."
