Remember please that this is not yet a confirmed date. The TARcon goddesses have not yet spoken.

And we all know that CBS has shuffled dates before...including last minute, so let's not rush to buy tickets or anything just yet. But I do agree that this looks very very likely.

Sorry Neobie...no excuses will be accepted. You are a genius, you'll sort it out. :hugs:

 just posted something similar in the Survivor thread after seeing the projected Survivor  change to Dec 20 for the finale.

There are some media reasons why the two finales (survivor and TAR) have been scheduled one week apart in the past...wonder if the change in Survivor's finale necessitates a change in TAR as well?

Not sure this should be considered firm yet though...

Recap show, or skip a week...

Anything is still possible, Futon Critic has been wrong before...But I think this IS possible in view of the Survivor change. :duno:

I'll guess we get bumped one Sunday around the Holiday? Thanksgiving ? but they have been starting Christmas a wee bit early, the stores already have decorations :grins:


Neobie! You now get American Holidays!  :jumpy:

FWIW, there were stores that had holiday decorations up and holiday items for sale the weekend TAR 15 premiered -- WalMart, Target, Walgreens, Best Buy, and Amazon.com, for starters.

Regarding that updated listings page for TAR at TFC, that's interesting, enough so that I sent Brian Ford Sullivan an email and asked him if he knows something that led to that change. I've sent him emails at TFC in the past and even if he didn't reply, the issue would be reflected on the site.

Yeah, when I saw that last night, I figured that Survivor would've been changed in terms of the air date.  I was too lazy/tired last night to further investigate, however.  Given the number of teams left, I can't see anything else other then TPTB skipping a week or a recap show.  Per Survivor's list on TFC, they have every episode listed as a real episode, even though one of them is slated to be the patented clip show.

Given the number of people left in Survivor Samoa, it does not look (super) realistic that Survivor will wrap up on the 13th of December.  Remember that they typically do a recap episode on Thanksgiving, so that's one day gone.  As a result, it's looking like Survivor will end on 12/20.  Of course, that technically shouldn't affect whether TAR should end on the 6th or the 13th, but since the move to Sunday, every season (save for TAR12) ended the week prior to the Survivor finale and live reunion.  As mentioned, it's probably due to media reasons.

Yeah, Survivor ending that late is not normal, as it's close to the holidays.  However, Christmas is at the end of that week, so I guess it shouldn't be that big of a deal.
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

Here is what TFC's reply to my email overnight:

Thanks for writing! It looks like the extra date was accidentally created by SURVIVOR's finale moving to December 20. It should be corrected by the time you read this.

So that confirms that something came out moving Survivor's finale date, and that there isn't anything (so far) that supports a later finale for TAR.

I do know that the TARCON organizers won't say anything until they get confirmation from their contacts.

I was coming over to mention that The Futon Critic has updated its Listings page fot TAR. It now treats episode 1512 airing on December 6th as definite and not projected, and now states season 15 is a 12 episode order.

Something must have come in from CBS for TFC to make both changes at the same time.
