"Jump the GREAT WHITE"

Lots of folks are talking about Survivor’s plan to divide their teams into “tribes” of ethnic groups. Lots of folks are saying it’s a big mistake. I’ve never watched a full seas– episode, but I have to agree that this scheme has got to be one of the worst decisions ever made to keep a television show afloat.

From Jump The Shark:

* This upcoming season is it. The controversy over their plan to separate the tribes by race will kill it. The only people sure to enjoy it are black separatists and skinheads. Just the kind of audience you want to pitch your product to, right? What’s next, Mr. Burnett? Jews vs. Gentiles? This show ran out of gas years ago. It’s now all “been there, done that” for them, and their ratings last spring reflect it. It’s no longer a top-10 show and even took a beating from “Dancing with the Stars”. The tribe has spoken, CBS. Time for “Survivor” to go.

* When Survivor divides the tribes according to race in this upcoming season. This show is barely hanging on, this will be the nail in the coffin.

* Survivor: Cook Islands is going to divide the teams by race. In other words, they are going to… wait for it… JUMP THE GREAT WHITE!

    Agreed – what’s next? Jews v. Gentiles? Muslims v. Jews? Catholics v. Protestants? oooh…so ever clever, they are. It’s ridiculous and offensive, which is what folks seems to be taking away from this whole thing.
