Surviving Survivor retrospective (and live blog) tonight

Tonight, CBS celebrates a (near) decade and (almost) 20 seasons of Survivor with a special one-hour retrospective titled Surviving Survivor. It airs at 8 p.m. ET.

The show is essentially like one of VH1’s “I Love the…” specials, with clips interspersed with interviews with cast members and some commentators. An (insanely short) preview is below.

Because reminiscing about shared experiences with strangers is fun, and the show will probably be somewhat ridiculous, I’ll be live blogging it right here, so I’ll look forward to another hour of group television watching with you all. See you at 8.
