Two more Survivors guaranteed

Survivor may be showing wear, but CBS has given it the vote of confidence for another year. The network picked up two more cycles of the reality contest.

The just-finished 13th cycle of the show, Survivor: Cook Islands, raised hackles early on when it was revealed that teams would be divided along racial lines at the oputset. The furor died down once viewers realized it was just a publicity stunt.

Survivor has remained solid despite shoiwing some signs of slowing down. Cook Islands averaged averaged 15.8 million viewers and a 5.5 rating/15 share in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen. The show had stiff competition from ABC's new star Ugly Betty.

Survivor: Fiji premires February 8. This time out, the tribes will compete to see who sleeps in relative luxury--the losing team will be forced to make do with less supplies, tools, and utensils.
