Survivor helps Real World’s syndication efforts.
The first four seasons of The Real World have been available for syndication purchase for a year now, but the success of CBS’ reality TV show has given the Bunim-Murray produced show a big boost. When it starts airing on non-MTV stations Oct. 2, it’ll have more promotion and better time slots thanks to Survivor.
