Tuned In: What’s Hot In The World Of TV

by | September 17, 2009 at 1:33 PM | Tuned In

Tonight the Fall TV season kicks into overdrive with many big shows returning – and leading the charge is the premiere of ‘Survivor: Samoa‘ at 8pm ET on CBS. Host Jeff Probst and 20 new castaways are back to see who can outwit, outlast and outplay and emerge with the $1 million grand prize. This season, look for Russell H. to turn the game on its head, as CBS has been billing him as “the biggest villain” to ever play the game (Meet Russell right here). This is the biggest group of contestants to ever play the game, and look for lots of twists and turns, including no Exile Island, and the tribes being forced to designate a “leader,” who will be tasked with making tough decisions through out the game. Another colorful character to watch is Shannon (aka “Shambo“) – she’s definitely unlike anyone that’s been on the show in the past.
