drag­ging be­hind

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

hi tv­plus, why are we so far be­hind with sur­vivor sea­sons on sabc3? – CALVIN LO­GAN PIL­LAY, EMAIL

when sea­son 1 kicked off in the states in 2000, sabc grabbed the se­ries just five months later. the gap be­tween sea­sons soon in­creased and by sea­son 15 in 2009, the sabc was al­ready two years be­hind the us dates. this was largely due to var­i­ous sched­ule changes and in­ter­rup­tions over the years. “sabc started late with the se­ries and we al­ways have a wait­ing pe­riod with pay chan­nels,” sabc3’s pub­li­cist doulha domingo ex­plains. “sabc un­for­tu­nately can­not skip sea­sons to catch up on the most re­cent as we only have one chan­nel and slot for the show.” nb! see more on p11.

sur­vivor could go on for­ever with host Jeff

probst at the helm.
