    remind me why survivor (which i assume brings in more money than BB), isn't 3 nights a week like BB?

    they have the footage and it just takes some editing. They are already trained for fast editing for BB so no biggie right?

    or is it because BB is in the summer and Survivor doesn't make as much money as the other shows on during fall?

    Definitely the latter. Remember what happened to ABC when they tried to put Millionaire on multiple nights during the regular TV season? Took the entire network a couple of years to recover from that.

    In the summer, expectations are lower, and since production costs on BB are low, it's not a problem to just run it multiple nights. However, in the regular season, viewers expect new stuff every night of the week, and if CBS tried to put multiple versions of Survivor on, it may turn people off on other CBS shows.

    However, once the college football season ends (CBS does SEC games on Saturday nights), it might be interesting to see them put a Saturday night edition on. Not something where you'd have to watch to know what's going on, but maybe an edited version of all the tribal interactions that we didn't get to see from the days that aired on the Thursday episode. You'd get several million people watching, but those who couldn't wouldn't really be missing out on anything.

    I'm just now catching up on my TV for the past week and a half.

    Jonathan looked and sounded so familiar that I could have sworn that I had seen him on TV before. I was pleased to find out that I was right!
    I had watched "Rude Awakening" and recognized him from there.

    Interesting. I still don't recognize him and I watched several of those shows. Hmmmm...I'll pay more attention during next episode.
