8/7c – CBS – Survivor: Philippines – Season 25 Premiere. Three former castaways and 15 new contestants, including actress Lisa Whelchel (The Facts of Life) and former professional baseball player Jeff Kent (San Francisco Giants), compete.
10/9c – MTV – The Real World/Road Rules Challenge – Season 23 Premiere. The competition reaches new heights as each team, composed of old roommates, exes and rivals, is forced to put their drama aside and come together to become the last seasons standing and to compete for the biggest chunk of $350,000 in prize money. A twist in the game right off the bat throws the roommates for a loop, but they’ll have little time to recover as the premiere kicks off with a challenge that leaves them hanging and fighting to stay aloft. I love a challenge and will be watching this. The only thing that would make this better was if Coral was coming back.
