--- Quote from: SuperTux on January 30, 2012, 06:51:22 PM ---Three seasons that got the fewest viewers in history are S19, S20 and S22, exactly the seasons where Russell Hantz participated. Is it a coincidence or a reflection of American viewers' favor? :duno: I like him a lot, though.

I highly doubt there's a correlation between those season's lower ratings and Russell being on them. I never knew they were so low rated in viewership. Perhaps maybe were they competing against American Idol during these times? I know seasons 20 & 22 aired in the spring when Idol is on, so that would explain that. Still would have thought season 21 would have very low viewers. That season I give a  :nopoints

Season 20 was an all stars season and is held in high regard as one of the, if not THE best season in the show's history. Going into the seasons, especially 19, viewers had no idea the show would revolve around Russell like it ended up being. And season 22 revolved entirely around Boston Rob, who is considered one of the most popular players ever. I ended up finding that one of the most boring seasons ever because of the horribly predictable editing and complete lack of gameplay by every other player. They all seemed content to just let Rob finally get his win.

And lastly even though the majority of message board opinion is that they hate Russell Hantz, remember the general/casual viewership voted him fan favorite in seasons 19 & 20, so when all is said and done, there were quite a few pleased with his gameplay.

Could the drop in ratings be due to the change from Thursday night to Wednesday night?  Thursday TV lineup is weak compared to Wednesday night.  :duno:

It may seem weird, but Wikipedia says season 21 got the average viewers 13.61 million and #11 rank, Among S18~S22 S21 got the most viewers. :duno:

If we edit the curse slightly to "Anyone who's returned from RI gets voted off at the next possible Tribal" then it is true, as Ozzy returned, and won immunity his first challenge back, but then was voted out next TC.

Exactly why I hope they never bring RI back. It's not back for S24 obviously, but Probst said it may not be completely done yet, hinting that it could return in a future season. I say what's the point? The people that get booted, usually always get booted for a reason, and by the time that someone returns, alliances and the game have moved on and there's just no place in it for a RI returnee. Not to mention the person on RI gets valuable one on one time with every potential jury member, they're just too much of a threat not to get rid of again immediately. Only chance is for them to win out in immunity, which is a tough task to expect.

If they ever decide to try RI again, I think it definitely needs to stop at the merge. Only use it as an opportunity to give some of the early boots extra screentime and one chance to get back in at the merge and be done with it. At least then you have the chance they'll stick around for the tribe's jockeying for their vote.
