Survivor goes profiling

So, you hear the new "Survivor: Cook Islands" is dividing the contestants up by race this season?

Pitting whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians against one another is hmm-mmm creepy.

Was everyone at CBS so bored by the old "Survivor" formula they had to reach into the cheap publicity stunts bag for this one? You remember that last season ABC canceled "Welcome to the Neighborhood" before it ever aired. And I've read that that show had at least some redeeming lessons.

With "Survivor" kicking off Sept. 14, however, I imagine it's far too late for CBS to backtrack on this.

Got a strong feeling on it? E-mail me --

Maybe this will help ABC and NBC on Thursday nights.

I have to say that this move suprised me... I feel sure that Survivor can't keep the teams segregated by racial profile for the entire game - at some point the tribes will come together & again be 1 large diverse group.

But - if there are any race issues/biases among team members - this will surely stir them up. Could be a car wreck.
