Survivor finale moved to Wednesday

Survivor finale moved to Wednesday

CBS announced today that the three-hour finale and reunion for Survivor Cagayan will air May 21.

That’s a Wednesday, and a significant shift for the show, which usually airs its finales on Sundays.

The network didn’t say why the finale was moving, it just announced the date.

EW’s Dalton Ross notes that this is the first time since season one that the finale will air on a Wednesday, and speculates that the late start because of the Olympics meant CBS ran out of Sunday finale space.

May 21 is also the second night of American Idol‘s two-night finale, and with Survivor Cagayan now consistently beating it, perhaps CBS is being strategic, and looking to strike a death blow.
