Well, it sort of led the charge in the reality TV world and it all started with a nude Richard Hatch prancing on your TV week-to-week. You’re welcome for the memories, by the way. Twenty-Five seasons later, Survivor is still running strong. CBS’s aptly named Daytime Talk Show, The Talk, will commemorate 25 seasons of Survivor during a special episode Wednesday, Sept 19, which happens to be the night Survivor: Philippines premieres. The special will air at 2pmET/1pmPT on CBS.
The Talk will welcome some of the show’s most memorable castaways, including returning vets (and former medical evacuees) Michael Skupin, Russell Swan, and Jonathan Penner, as well as upcoming castaway Lisa Whelchel. Hosts of THE TALK will also participate in a SURVIVOR challenge on stage and the audience and viewers at home will have a chance to win SURVIVOR-themed prizes.
Hosted by the ever-familiar, Jeff Probst, Survivor’s 25th season kicks off Wednesday night at 8/7c on CBS, followed by the Season Finale of Big Brother 14 at 9:30/8:30c!
