    Not sure why 'Survivor' is on anymore, all that bamboo much cost a pretty penny. Just send some stringers out to film people with earbuds in and their noses glued to their phones as they walk the streets and we'd have an unlimited supply of real reality-tv as they plow into street poles, trip down stairs, fall down open manhole covers and otherwise humiliate themselves in a variety of amusing ways.

    Wait. CBS, this was my idea.
