Survivor: Vanuatu

Premieres: Thursday, September 16 at 8pm ET (two-hour special)

When to catch it: Thursdays at 8pm ET on CBS

Finale: December

Starring: Host Jeff Probst and 18 contestants

In a nutshell: In the remote waters of the South Pacific, 18 contestants -- up from the usual 16 -- complete for a million-dollar prize in the ninth edition of Survivor. For those new to the series, here's the deal: Survivor follows a group of people who are dropped in a remote locale and must fend for themselves. (They are given a machete and a pot to boil water in.) During weekly tribal council meetings, contestants are voted off the show and sent home. The last one standing gets the cash -- and often a strange disease or two. This season, the group will be split men vs. women. Who will outwit, outplay and outlast all the others...and who should get ousted ASAP? Talk about all things Survivor right there.

UPDATE: Hey all -- We have a new forum for the tenth season of Survivor. So come on over to the new board to dish on Jeff Probst, this new cast and the rest of the Survivor dirt. See you there!
