For years Survivor held a tight grip on Thursday night television as it clobbered nearly every network each week.Â When CBS officials announced Survivor was being moved from Thursday nights to Wednesday nights for this season, many fans thought it was a risky move.Â But CBS proved the decision was a good one as the ratings have been consistently strong since Survivor: Nicaragua premiered in the middle of September.
So far this season, Survivor: Nicaragua has won its new Wednesday night time period with viewers ages 18-48 and 25-54 every week.Â CBS officials say this season has shown strong gains in ratings compared to last yearâ€™s Survivor: Samoa.
Looking back several weeks, CBS reported the premiere was the night’s number-one television program for the key age demographics.Â Survivor: Nicaragua’s premiere posted a 13 percent gain compared to the premiere of Survivor: Samoa in September of 2009 in adults ages 25-54.
Who will outwit, outplay and outlast all the others to take home the $1 million prize?Â The finale comes on Sunday, December 19.Â Stay tuned to RealityTVMagazine for exclusive coverage with Ryan Haidet from the red carpet.
