Ratings Toss Up: ‘Survivor’ v. ‘Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior’ Premieres Tonight
At some point CBS should just give in and call the show Russellvivor, as Russell Hantz makes his third appearance in four series on the new Survivor: Redemption Island tonight. But there’s not just one, but two derivative premieres on CBS tonight, as the Criminal Minds spinoff, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior bows at 10pm.
As far as historical ratings go, Survivor: Nicaragua averaged a 3.6 adults 18-49 rating last fall, and Criminal Minds “original version” has averaged a 3.23 rating so far this spring at 9pm.
Although they’re both on CBS, who’ll get the better ratings tonight?
