Survivor concludes Sunday; final four are Butch, Matt, Rob, and Jenna.
Heidi took the walk on Survivor Amazon last night, despite her apparent efforts to get the three guys to vote for a sickly and whiny Jenna, and despite the fact that Butch’s obsession with firewood probably caused the camp to burn down. That leaves Butch, Matt, Rob (who USA TODAY calls “the most compellingly conniving player in Survivor history”), and Jenna as the final four. The series concludes Sunday night with the usual three-hour long finale starting at 8 p.m. ET; the first two hours will be the last episode, followed by a live one-hour reunion from New York City.
+ also: Jeff Probst says that Amazon is “in the top three” with Australia and Survivor 1 and says “there was some content that was not appropriate” this season.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
