CBS asks Mark Burnett to edit Thursday’s “graphic” show.
Remember the scene in the preview for this week’s Survivor 2 episode where Michael’s playing with blood and an animal carcass? That scene has been edited and toned down, The New York Daily News reports. Creator Mark Burnett didn’t object to CBS’ request, saying “there was no argument”; he maintains that he’s “happy with” the change.
