There's a new season of Survivor kicking off tonight, and they've found a way to bring Li'l Russell and Boston Rob back. That show sure knows how to milk its "stars," such as they are. The bad boys will seemingly be mentoring the folks that get kicked off and then they will somehow be competing Real World/Road Rules Challenge-style to win a spot back in the game. It all sounds very complicated and confusing.

That said, this show needed some sort of infusion of creativity, even if it does seem to borrow liberally from another show. There are only so many bored looking twentysomethings starving themselves that we can really handle getting to know and forget in the course of the run of this series. Even if I'm over Russell (and I should be over Boston Rob, but there's just something about him that I personally find utterly watchable), at least I know what I'm getting with him, and that's more than I can say about the new crop of people who may or may not have the ability to entertain me.

The new season kicks off tonight at 8 on CBS and is up against Idol and the like.
