NYC officials want new 'Survivor' pulled

By SARA KUGLER, Associated Press Writer 48 minutes ago

As CBS prepares to launch a new season of the hit reality show "Survivor," this time featuring teams divided by race, enraged city officials are saying it promotes divisiveness and are calling for the network to reconsider.

"The idea of having a battle of the races is preposterous," City Councilman John Liu said Thursday. "How could anybody be so desperate for ratings?"

For the first portion of the 13th season of "Survivor," which premieres Sept. 14, the contestants competing for the $1 million prize while stranded on the Cook Islands in the South Pacific will be divided into four teams — blacks, Asians, Latinos and whites.

Liu, who is Asian-American, said he was launching a campaign urging CBS to pull the show because it could encourage racial division and promote negative typecasts. He and a coalition of officials, including the council's black, Latino and Asian caucus, planned to rally at City Hall on Friday.

that is just about the stupidest thing i've heard all day.

if the people who are actually ON the show don't give a shit about being divided into races why should anyone else??

whatever. like they'd pull it after it's already been filmed anyway.

I'd insert a 'yawn' smilie here but that might constitute a personal attack.

Who cares... its freaking TV. They're just running out of ideas and want to keep their ratings up

It's just a way to divide people for a GAME SHOW. It's not like they have announced they are conducting an experiment to determine a superior race or something. I figured it would draw controversy though.

And this is exactly what draws ratings: controversy. Smart producers.
