Survivor ratings up, Amazing Race ratings down
Survivor Tocantins debut was watched by 13.63 million people. That’s up slightly from the 13 million who watched Gabon’s debut, and down just a tiny bit from the 13.69 million viewers who watched the debut of Survivor Micronesia about a year ago.
CBS calls this “the time period’s best viewer delivery since last winter’s debut of ‘Survivor: Micronesia’ and highest adult 18-49 rating since Oct. 23 (‘Survivor: Gabon’).”
The network hasn’t yet issued a press release about the debut ratings for The Amazing Race 14, perhaps because of the holiday, or perhaps because they sucked.
Although it was a vastly improved premiere episode, just 9.42 million people watched The Amazing Race 14’s first hour. That’s down from the 10.29 million who watched last fall’s premiere, which itself was down from the 12th season’s best-ever 13.8 million.
