She was extremely well known among my generation - the 40 somethings, which would include the folks Cornflake mentioned Facts of Life was a spinoff from Different Strokes, which was the #1 show at the time & IIRC, they were back-to-back in their time slot.

I was thinking the same thing. I don't think I've ever seen a season where I would be okay with any of the remaining 4 winning. That being said, really don't want Lisa to win.

Side note: I recently discovered Colby occasionally posts on another forum that I frequent.
I just looked it up. Colby won the final 5 immunity challenges. Amazing!

Also happened to nice that over 41 million people watched the Season 2 finale. I can't believe how hard the numbers have fallen off since then.

Aside from no longer being new, it's gotten stale. Too many interchangeable locations that all look alike. And so little focus on "surviving" now. The show really was better back then.

While I still enjoy the show, I agree with you. Recently, I watched the DVD set of season 2, Australia, and the production value is amazing - fantastic music, sweeping long camera shots, etc. And Colby!! Wow!

It's currently on one of the Nick channels I *think*, NaN or TV Land or whatever, I saw it the other week , they've been running it on Wednesdays to coordinate.

It's been in rerurns for ages, I used to watch it in bunches, though I think it used to be on a regular syndication channel not Nick, back in the day.

It wasn't a sitcom for a minute - it had a really long run; it had George Clooney. Others in the cast got more out of it, Welchel dropped out and went nuts, but it was still a big show.

Also Malcom is in the cast of the redemption survivor
Gee, thanks for that giant spoiler.

Wasn't this thread supposed to be spoiler-free?

When will I learn that people won't let that happen?

what was spoiled? Malcolm being a contestant on season 26 has been a rumor since this season began.

I stay away from spoilers, as I don't wish to be spoiled see, so I didn't know that. Even if I had, I certainly wouldn't have come and dropped it in a thread supposed to be spoiler-free.

Seeing a list of players for the next season isn't really a spoiler. It doesn't tell you anything about this season or what happens on the next.

Seriously? Coming in just before the finale in which he's competing and saying oh, btw, Malcolm is gonna be on the next season, called 'Redemption' isn't a giant spoiler?
