So says host Jeff Probst on CBS' Early Show (

I've never felt the need to watch the show before, but I think it might be time to count me in.

My boss is a big fan of this show and now he's really excited for it. I see nothing but bad things coming from this.

Remember last season's much ballyhooed "they'll start with four tribes" twist? That was eliminated by the second episode, so I doubt that this gimmick will last much longer.

Frankly, I'm just glad that there will actually be some diversity on Survivor this season instead of the usual 14 white folks and two minorities.

Scene: Mark DeRosa's brain. The year is 2005.
Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Come on, another position change? One day it's second base, the next day right field, now it's third? Why, I oughta go into Buck's office and throw his talking fish on the floor!
Other part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Hold on, other part of the brain. We're making $500,000 this year. Last year we made $725,000. All for playing a damn kids' game. This is, as they say in Brainland, a no-"us"-er. We're not going to complain.
Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: You're right, dude. Let's go back to looking at this crazy porn Teixeira gave us!

God bless the men of 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard...good luck, and come home soon.

In the immortal words of Adam Sandler: "Who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?"

Just what this country needs...more racially-based division. Cheer for either side and you're a racist. Wonderful.

God, I loathe "reality TV"...except for "Hogan Knows Best."

I would have really been impressed if they threw together a tribe of Muslims.

Tribe of Muslims? What? Don't be silly, Goon. Everybody knows it's a law that Muslims can't be showcased on television unless they are shown blowing something up or flipping out.

Boy, I do not like this idea at all. I agree the show needs more diversity, so why not have an equal number of people of those four races without the separating-by-race thing thrown in?

Which ofcourse is pretty impossible since Muslims aren't always a certain race.
Would be funny though. A group of arabian looking people and one really really white guy.

*sigh* Why bother?

No matter how long they keep the tribes separate, this scheme of Burnett's has accomplished what it set out to do - people are talking about Survivor again. I haven't gone back to check but I would be willing to bet that you can go back to last year and you can probably count the # of Survivor threads on this board on one hand and have a few fingers left over. It's a show people watch but it hasn't been a "water cooler" show since Rob & Amber swept through the All Star version.

Personally, other than finally getting some diversity into the cast, I think the idea stinks. I hope it flops and they change it up after the first elimination.

They've done the "youngsters vs. oldsters" gimmick and the "guys vs. girls" gimmick, so it's not really surprising. They sorta' unofficially did the "straight vs. gay" competition a few seasons back (Fire Islands, where Chris the Redneck won).

Give it a few more seasons and they'll be trotting out "firefighters vs. dentists". So it's well on the road to becoming MXC!!

Glancing at the cast list, I'd say Billy looks like a fan favorite (at least around here). A chubby, heavy metal guitarist from NY who likes wrestling.

Nobody complained when it was men versus women.

Nobody complained when it was old men versus young men versus old women versus young women.

Where was the righteous indignation then?

I've been watching it and I've actually started getting into boxing. Only complaint is maybe not enough boxing but it's not that big of a deal.
