Survivor fans are still waiting for Nine to schedule the latest season of Survivor: One World.
The latest season started a month ago in the US.
At the time a Nine spokesperson told TV Tonight, “…there are no plans to sit on it for any length of time. We expect it will be slotted in to the schedule very soon.”
With Episode 5 airing in the US this week, that’s beginning to look a little shaky.
TV Tonight understands it is unlikely to begin before mid-April, although that’s not confirmed.
While Nine hasn’t always started in sync with the US it’s often been able to catch up, thanks to double episodes and pre-emptions. But a mid-April launch would need a fair whack if it is have any hope of ending in the same week.
The problem with late delivery of Reality shows is the increased risk of online Spoilers (especially for certain bloggers reading about other TV news!).
By contrast, Seven is fast-tracking Amazing Race for fans.
