Wednesday on Utah TV: Crazy Brandon stirs things up on "Survivor"

We knew this would happen even before this season of Survivor (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) began - Brandon Hantz acts crazy in this week's episode.

He did, after all, act a whole lot of crazy the first time he was on the show. Crazy enough that viewers had serious reason to question his mental stability.

Maybe it was just an act. If so, it was a really bad one.

Or maybe Brandon is unhinged.

Utahn Dawn Meehan is in the same tribe as Brandon. Lucky her.
