WBTV's dilemma: UNC vs. Duke, or 'Survivor'?

Poll

Which would you rather watch?

WBTV (Channel 3) has a problem.

On Wednesday, CBS is planning a two-hour debut of one of its most popular programs, “Survivor,” 8-10 p.m.

And UNC is planning to play Duke at 9 p.m.

Yes, the UNC-Duke match-up is starting on Channel 3 at 9 p.m. – there are some things you just don’t mess with. That means viewers will miss the second hour of “Survivor.”

WBTV has decided to do this: It will carry the full “Survivor” on its digital channel (3.2) and rebroadcast the entire episode at 1:37 a.m. (you can discuss that with your DVR), followed by the “CSI” episode the game is also pre-empting. “Survivor” will be available on CBS.com on Wednesday.
