CBS announced today that Survivor Pearl Islands will premiere on Thursday 9/18, a week earlier than the rest of the schedule, like it did last year. No word on whether it will be 90 minutes like The Amazon premiere was. Another interesting tidbit is Jeff probst was on E! last week and said 2 big events had already happened in the first 19 days that have never happened before on Survivor. No clues, of course. Any guesses? Maybe a huge storm (hurricane, monsoon, tornado..) or a hookup between 2 castaways?
