Survivor returned Wednesday night with a rousing premiere episode, yet the franchise’s ratings continued their steady downward march.

Survivor: Caramoan was down 23 percent from last spring’s Survivor: One World premiere to rate as the show’s lowest-rated premiere ever, with 9 million viewers and a 2.4 rating.

One thing that’s never made sense to me is why, in this era where DVRs are being used in 47 percent of households, CBS changes the title of Survivor for every edition.

As fans know, each cycle of the show has an official location or theme-based subtitle to help distinguish it from previous cycles. »
