Yeah, actually LJ not playing the idol is probably the smarter long term move. Had playing it assured him a numbers flip and control of the tribe for his alliance until the merge, then it makes sense to play it. If not, and there is a possibility that he can survive and hold it, then you hold it. Plus as you said he may have gotten an assurance from Tony that they just didn't show us as that would have taken suspense put of the vote for viewers.

Looks like Lindsay and Woooooooooooooooooo are on the outs now.

So what you're saying is as soon as a player finds an idol, in your opinion they have to play it the next tribal regardless.

LJ would have only been a dumbass if he got voted off with the idol in his possession.

^yep. I'm surprised he didnt play it, but now it bought him 3 extra days.

Trish is annoying she needs to go. Morgan is my local... she's ok but I'm not really rooting for her.

CBS announced that the Survivor season finale will be on Wednesday, May 21. No Sunday finale this season.

Fine by me. It never should have been on Sundays to begin with, but CBS didn't want to cut into their higher rated programming (CSI aired after Survivor back in the day). I can't tell you how many times I had friends who had watched an entire season and then missed the finale because they forgot it was on Sunday...so they sat through 13 hours of programming, and then were like, "So, who won?"

Trish is irritating, but characters are characters. She flipped over her entire tribe because of some cougar flirting. Can't argue with that for my entertainment.

Brawn had this game in the bag if they had just stuck together. They likely would have all made the merge and had a 6 person voting bloc...game over. Now, anything can happen although it looks to me like the beauty tribe is still pretty screwed. They're gunning for each other on the other tribe and LJ/Jefra could become targets if Brawn manages to come together again. My guess is that the other tribe loses the rest of the challenges since they're clearly weaker...Brains + Sarah + Morgan boot out the beauty duo of Alexis/Jeremiah before the merge along with Morgan if the merge is at 11. Merge will have a good scramble, but then it will become obvious who has the numbers and who has the connections/worst chances of winning to stick together through the end. Really, I wouldn't be surprised if the Brains managed to all be sitting at the end together...other likely winners seem like Tony/Sarah from the edit.

They really need to ditch the Final Three. It's fucking this show up. The three people with the worst chances of winning vote together at the Final Six and effectively "win" the game. Redemption Island, Caramoan and Blood vs. Water all worked this way. Final Two leads to far more jockeying for position and no guarantees that you'll make the end. In those seasons I mentioned, those three people literally were the finalists by the Final Six (if not earlier since the fourth-least-likely-person to win should be voting with them at Final Seven, for example). Not every season ends up with it being clear to the players who the least likable people are in terms of getting the jury vote, but a lot of times it's blatantly obvious and leads to a very annoying endgame that anybody can predict.

Can you recall if they ever did a non Sunday finale?

Just the first three seasons, Borneo on Wednesdays and Australian Outback/Africa on Thursdays. That's it. By the time Africa aired, the show had lost nearly ten million viewers and was no longer the #1 program on television, hence more reason than ever for Survivor to pre-empt the lower rated Sunday slot rather than CSI which was becoming CBS' #1 show. Survivor: Africa ended up having a late start and finishing early the next year, so they kept the finale in the regular timeslot since it wasn't going to be airing against much competition or pushing out higher rated CBS shows. By Marquesas, CSI was #1, I believe, and from there they've done Sunday finales ever since. It was also the first (and only) finale I missed and didn't see until years later since we had one television and my dad insisted on watching the X-Files final episode.

I think Survivor now is higher rated than the rest of the Wednesday night lineup in the key demo, hence why they can air it in that slot. Of course, all they ever had to do in the past was simply program the Survivor finale to air a week after the rest of the Wednesday/Thursday line-up has its season finales...then they could have aired the three hour thing in place of what would normally be reruns and with no real competition...but whatever.

They might have aired the finales on every regularly scheduled night instead of Sundays if it wasn't for CSI. Survivor was still one of CBS's biggest shows (and still is now), but there was no way they were going to give it a whole night when people would be expecting a CSI episode at 9 PM. I guess we can blame America's poor taste for the Sunday finales.
