Ratings: Survivor Outpaces Desperate Housewives

Survivor: Redemption Island

The granddaddy of all network reality shows might be showing further signs of creakiness, but Survivor: Redemption Island's finale and afterparty averaged 12.5 million viewers Sunday night.

The three-hour combo, starting at 8/7c, posted a 3.8 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds, helping CBS easily win the night. The season-ender declined compared with the previous season's finale in December (13.6 million, and 4.1 demo rating). But while the show's audience has dwindled in recent years, the TV staple still manages to finish in the top 15, if not the top 10. It consistently attracted more than 10 million people for its usual Wednesday airing this season.
