    Well, a keyword wishlist for "Survivor Cook Islands" will pick up the Friday Early Shows.

    But, generally, try Tivo and the numbers. TiVo+2 brings up the To Do (get it, "2" do? har de har har) List.

    1st time survivor viewer here. I caught an ep of Palau as a suggestion and now I am hooked.
    So I am recording Palau and the new season. I feel dirty for some reason. ;)

    I had never watched Survivor before either. The only reason I am watching this season is "race wars."

    I was one of the "watched the first season, never watched the others" until 2 seasons ago when I picked it up again.

    Since then I've watched all the old seasons in reruns on OLN and am currently watching Palau which will complete my Survivor catch-up. Unfortunately I do know who's going to win Palau but it's still fun to watch.

    It would be fun to have a mondo all-inclusive Survivor thread someday to compare all the various seasons. It's pretty wild the extremes the producers have put the contestants through. Some seasons they let them starve and have almost nothing (Africa) and some seasons they have coffee pots and tree stumps with electrical outlets (Vanauatu?). Some seasons all supermodels, some ... not so much. :) I have enjoyed it.

    Quite welcome and actually you opened up my eyes to people that don't likely use the shortcuts (knowingly or not). See, I very very frequently use Tivo 1, 2 and 4. Some people say they love the peanut remote...I hate it and never understood how in the world you can do a Tivo (shortcut) as quicky as I can with my sony remote.

    now i have my answer...people dont use the shortcuts ! note the long distance between the tivo button and the keypad on the peanut. I literally would have hand spasms trying to do that on a peanut as much as my wife and i go into the menus.

    i didnt think the blackberry had reception that far out? :)

    I'm another first time Survivor watcher, but not solely because of the "race wars". I was simply tired of not knowing what the rest of the family was talking about at Sunday dinner!

    yeah, something really needs to get my attention for me to be interested.. the past 11 seasons just seemed really petty and boring.. and i have to jump on the race division drew my attention bandwagon.. it just seems like a cool idea.. plus madtv did a great cook island survivor parody saturday.. ;)

    I can't wait for the tribes to merge down to 3 or 2. The lack of coverage around the camps really irks me a bit. That's the whole part of the show. I barely know 3 people after a full episode.

    Way to not pull me in and not get me hooked. Come on. I would have watched a 2 hour first episode.

    I've always said that the first episode should be 2 hours long. In fact I think that there should be 2, 1-hour long episodes each week. I too would like to see more of life around camp, etc. If they are filming 24/7 they surely have enough footage to use.

    If I was the producer, the first episode of the week would show life around camp, shelter building, etc and end it with the reward challenge. Then the second episode of the week would feature more camp life, player interactions, etc. and end with the immunity challenge and tribal council. Of course with the way they have been combining the reward challenge and immunity challenges into a single challenge the past few seasons, I'm not sure what I would do then.
