Survivor: China gets lowest premiere ratings in show's history
Did you watch Survivor: China last night?
The season premiere of the CBS reality show got a 4.9 rating among adults 18 to 49 (the juicy demographic the networks love). Even though it was the highest rated show last night, it was down 25% from the "Cook Islands" season and down 14% from the "Fiji" season.
I actually watched the show last night, even though I haven't watch the last two installments (it was getting stale for me and there are other things to watch like The Office and/or Ugly Betty). And you know what? It pretty much bored me to tears. Maybe it's just that the 15th season of a show - especially a reality show - can just be too much. Or maybe it's the characters (yes, even though it's a reality show I still look at them as characters). Though I have to say the fact that Chicken was voted off the first night made me happy enough to at least TiVo the show next week. I couldn't imagine listening to him for an entire season (plus the girl with the giant boobs didn't get voted off).
