Cops and Firemen Battle to Avoid Elimination on 'Expedition: Impossible' (VIDEO)

'Expedition: Impossible'The Cops and New York Firemen haven't been as dominant on 'Expedition: Impossible' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC). As the only teams made up of co-workers, and representing public servants nationwide, they're going to need to step up their game if they want to survive these next few weeks.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

After coming in 10th and 8th out of 12 teams last week, they failed to improve their standings. In fact, at the end of this stage they were battling it out with one other team to avoid elimination.

But the boys pulled it off, as the New York Firemen came in 10th, followed by The Cops in 11th, leaving Mom's Army as the second eliminated team. While the other teams have shifted placements these first two weeks, friends team The Gypsies found themselves in 1st place again. Can they keep this streak alive?

'Expedition Impossible'To succeed in a team-based competition like the new reality series 'Expedition Impossible' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC), you must work together. Teamwork is key, and with three people on each group in this show, it's even more important to make sure everyone is working together and toward the same goals.

While it's normal for stress and exhaustion to cause friction as the series progresses, the team called Latin Persuasion were bickering almost from the moment the competition began. Even when they fell into last place, they kept at it.

During a challenge where they had to find water in the Moroccan desert using the traditional methods of the local people, Raven Garcia finally laid into Mai Reyes for doing a lot of standing around so far in the game and not much else.

There are a lot of new shows on this summer and, let's face it, they're not all winners. But how do you know? You see a billboard, see a preview, read what TV people like us tell you to watch, but sometimes you need something more concrete.

Enter our handy-dandy mathematical equations for this week's new summer shows!

Expedition Impossible

OK, you're probably thinking that math and TV don't mix, but you're sorely mistaken. One show you love (+) another show you love (+) actors you adore = awesome. A show you kind of like (-) the parts you like = pass. Simple as that.

Here, we've done the math on five new shows premiering this week -- 'Combat Hospital,' 'Commercial Kings,' 'Expedition Impossible,' 'Suits' and '101 Ways to Leave a Game Show' -- so put away your calculator and set your DVRs ... or not.

The Marriage Ref - Sunday June 26, 10 PM ET/PT, Citytv/NBC

The second season of Jerry Seinfeld's comedy roundtable debuts to much consternation, since it was generally agreed that the show was a flop. To be honest, I'm really happy about it. I thought the first season was pretty funny and at least it's not another singing competition. Julianne Moore and Ricky Gervais join Jerry on the panel and Tom Papa is back to referee.

'Expedition Impossible': Watch the First 15 Minutes of ABC's New Reality Competition

Expedition Impossible'Expedition Impossible,' Mark Burnett's latest reality show, follows teams racing against each other as they trek through Morocco.

ABC posted 15 minutes of the premiere online today, and the show seems kind of like 'The Amazing Race' meets an Iron Man challenge during a desert season of 'Survivor.' Which is to say it looks interesting, though not entirely original.

There are plenty of reality TV tropes to be found -- there's the redneck team, the spicy latina team, the ex-NFL players who talk exclusively in football metaphors, the guy overcoming adversity, the excruciatingly long pauses before critical moments -- but all in all, it looks like a fun show for the summer. That said, if it were ever up against 'TAR,' Phil Keoghan would win every time.
