Wednesday on TV: "Survivor" is back — yeah! "Big Brother" is ending — yeah!

CBS begins a season of one reality show tonight and ends another.

Survivor: Blood vs. Water (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) features 10 returning contestants (including Utahn Tyson Apostol) competing against their loved ones (including Tyson's girlfriend, Rachel Foulger).

And, by the way, the premiere is 90 minutes long, so it won't end until 8:30 p.m.

At that point, Big Brother (8:30 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) takes over. And we find out who the winner is.

As far as I'm concerned, they're all losers. Either they were racists or homophobes or misogynists, or they didn't call out the racists or homophobes or misogynists. I'm not a fan of this show to begin with, but the behavior this season speaks to the need to screen these idiots better before you let them on national TV.
