The latest season of Survivor, “Heroes vs Villains” will air on Nine from Tuesday March 9th.
The reality series will premiere at 8:40pm following a new episode of Top Gear -and by the looks of things, Nine will be running a 70 minute episode of the motoring show. Nine has maintained it didn’t make cuts to the first episode which aired last week.
The big audience lead-in should help Survivor which has not been given such a profile timeslot by Nine in the ratings season for some years.
Two episodes of the new season have aired in the US so far. The “Heroes vs Villains” edition sees the return of many famous players including Rupert, Boston Rob, Coach, Parvati, Stephanie, Colby, Amanda, Sugar JT and ‘Samoan’ villain Russell.
It kicks off with a two hour season premiere, as per the US launch.
