    Anyone have any idea (give or take a week) when the next survivor series begins? Can't find any indication on the CBS website.
    I wonder why it is absent among the ridiculous hype around every other show's season premiere.

    I think it is October 11. I saw it on a commercial on Global a couple weeks ago.

    I think there are several factors why this season, for a lot of shows, are starting late, though if you look at the past several years, an October start is not exactly rare (and the Simpson's season once started on November 1).
    1) The odds were that there was going to be a writer's and/or actor's strike so some shows got off a late production start (though some got an early start).
    2) In the past the baseball playoffs were usually on one or two networks while the World Series might be on a third network. Since all of this year's playoffs and WS games are on FOX, this only explains why almost all of Fox's new shows debut late October/early November.
    3) As far as Survivor, since it's a limited series (13 episodes I think) CBS proabably want to make sure the bulk of the episode run through November sweeps.
    Unless they have a week off somewhere or add a mid-season recap, the 13th episode will fall on January 3.
