TVGN re-airing Survivor Fans vs. Favorites, Heroes vs. Villains this week

Starting at 11 a.m. ET today and continuing tomorrow, TVGN, formerly known as the TV Guide Network, will broadcast both the original Survivor Fans vs. Favorites (today and tomorrow) and Survivor Heroes vs. Villains (Thursday and Friday). The schedule lists times and episodes.

TVGN, which also broadcasts heavily censored live feeds from Big Brother, is now owned by CBS, so it makes sense that they’d fill time with something that’d indirectly promote a show on its sibling network. Three of the cast of returnees on the upcoming Survivor Blood vs. Water also appeared on Heroes vs. Villains.

This isn’t the first time full seasons have been rebroadcast; previously, Outdoor Life Network re-aired the first 10 seasons.
