Survivor II Premiere The Second Most-Watched Post-Super Bowl Program In At Least 14 Years

By Reality TV World staff, 01/29/2001 

"CBS's 'Survivor: The Australian Outback' got off to a strong start in its post-Super Bowl exhibition game on Sunday, but all eyes now turn to its tough Thursday test."

"The second edition of the reality series bowed Sunday before an average of 43.6 million viewers, making it the second most-watched post-Super Bowl program in at least 14 years -- behind, only the 1996 episode of 'Friends' (52.9 million), the show that 'Survivor' will now face when it moves to its regular timeslot beginning this week."

"While 'Survivor 2,' as expected, was unable to match the ratings of the original's two-hour finale last August (28.6/45 in homes, 51.69 million viewers, 22.8/54 in adults 18-49), it did set new series highs Sunday in teens (16.7) and men 18-49 (22.6). It also ranks as the top-rated entertainment broadcast of the season."
