THANK GOD it's a 2 hr premiere. The last great premiere was Pearl Islands and it was 90 minutes. An hour doesn't cut it.

YES! A two hour premiere! FINALLY!

I always hope CBS gives BB a two hour premiere too, but they never do!


I am eager to see if Survivor can keep up the momentum. China and Fans vs. Favs were fan-fucking-tastic!

To me, last 5 seasons were great! I loved Panama, Cooks, Fiji, China and Micronesia! So a part of me feels like this will be a bad seasons. LOL

But still I am so anxious and can't wait till it starts! :D

I wonder if a two hour season premiere will affect the ratings though.

Cook Islands was meh for me. Fiji almost made me stop watching.
I loved Cooks because the Aitu 4 kept winning. And I loved Yul and Ozzy and hated Parvati, Adam and Candice. So that was great for me (I know people say it was rigged, but I don't believe it.. :P )

I this Fiji was worst of the last 5 seasons, but I still really liked it. I liked some of those little twists, I loved the Yau Man/Earl alliance. I loved that deal Yau and Dreamz had, of course I hated Dreamz for breaking the deal, but it was so much drama if Dreamz was gonna respect the deal or not or if he'll at least vote to keep Yau like they spoke about... it was good to me..

There is also 2 other players ACE & Jacqui but their profiles aren't working on CBS.COM


Seems like a decent cast but way too much from California.

I'll add Ace & Jacqui's profile when it goes up.

Some are saying the "two hour premiere" is actually Episodes 1 and 2 packaged together.

I thought so from the start. I didn't even think it would be a longer episode 1, until Darrah was happy about it and mentioned Pearl Islands being 90 minutes.

But IMO, the evictions in the same episode is dumb IMO. I have no idea why they are doing this..
