A new season of Survivor premieres tonight, Survivor:Philippines. This edition has a couple of gimmicks. Three former castaways who left the show for medical reasons are getting a second chance to compete. A couple of semi-celebrities, former Facts of Life star Lisa Welchel and former baseball MVP Jeff Kent will also attempt to outwit, outlast and outplay. Will these twists breathe new life into the grandfather of competitive reality shows?
Survivor: One World premiered to a 3.1 adults 18-49 rating on Wednesday, February 15, 2012. How will Survivor: Philippines compare?
