RENEWAL ALERT: Survivor
In an early decision for next year (but perhaps necessary due to production schedule), CBS has renewed Survivor for another two editions (#25 and #26). The long running reality show has been a durable hit for CBS for over a decade. After years on Thursday, it made the move to Wednesday last season where it has held up well against stiff competition including ABC's comedies and FOX's American Idol and now The X-Factor. In its current edition this fall, it has averaged 11.1 million viewers and a good 3.3 in the demo.
Survivor joins The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother as early renewals for the 2012-2013. CBS will have some tough calls about what to keep after this year with every veteran and new show performing decently enough.
