CBS has just announced the Survivor 2014 finale date for Cagayan, Season 28. Perhaps emboldened by its recent ratings victory over American Idol the show will air its season finale on May 21st 8-10PM, the exact same times as FOX’s Idol finale. Yikes.
Bucking its recent trend Survivor finales on Sunday nights the series will crown the Cagayan Sole Survivor on its regularly scheduled night of Wednesdays. The reunion show will follow as usual.
I think this is a rotten idea since I cover both shows and it’s already a hassle on regular Wednesday night overlaps, but this just seems like an unnecessary challenge for them. Hopefully it works out for Survivor though.
As for the recent bump in ratings hopefully producers notice viewers are coming back with the show’s all-new cast and no Redemption Island. Let’s keep that theme going, CBS.

Next time on Survivor 2014 the drama boils over at Solana when Trish and Lindsey flip out at each other following Cliff’s elimination.
In the clip below we see the tempers flaring in the dark which makes me think it’s right after they get back from Tribal Council when the stress was already high.
That’s all we get from the preview clip so that’s a little weak and worrisome that the best they have to offer next week is just a fight between Trish and Lindsey. Lindsey should watch her step though because she was on the losing side of that last vote and it could easily happen again.
We’ll watch for more pics & preview clips in the coming days and will post them up there to get us a better idea of what’s coming up next week on Survivor.
Survivor Cagayan – Episode 5 Preview:
Last night on Survivor we were treated to an exciting tribe shuffle/merge where the Brawn, Brains, & Beauty elements combined to form new Aparri and Solana tribes. After a few fierce challenges the Solana tribe headed to Tribal Council for another fun blindside. The choice doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, but we’ll see how it turns out for them soon.
Check out these pictures from last night’s Survivor 2014 episode and see if you can spot where Solana went wrong. That Immunity Challenge was right up their alley and they still managed to lose it. Wow!

Cliff Robinson was the latest castaway to be voted off Survivor when his new Solana tribe turned on him at Tribal Council for another blindside elimination.
Reflecting on the season Cliff said he had a great time, enjoyed it immensely, and holds no grudges against any of the players. Of course he also hopes Trish and Tony don’t get near the money, but we don’t blame him for thinking that!
We really enjoyed Cliff on the show this season and are sorry to see him go so fast. He was a huge asset to his tribe week and week again yet here he sits doing an exit interview on Survivor Cagayan. Ah well.
Cliff Robinson – “The Day After” on Survivor 2014:
Tonight on Survivor 2014 the Beauty, Brains, and Brawn tribes vanished and two new tribes were formed two new teams using the orange and purple tribe colors. Aparri remained mostly intact while losing only Sarah and gaining LJ and Jefra. Everyone else left on Survivor moved over to the new orange tribe.
