I have never seen it: I do not watch television.  I have only a vague
idea what it is about (and no interest in learning more).

I appreciate Dr. Mills' humor.  However, I do not think that it is
desireable to make detailed familiarity with USA popular culture
essential for the comprehension of documentation.  It's quite possible
to have an adequate grasp of written English without knowing what
"Survivor" is (or knowing the rules of baseball: this applies to the
ever-popular sports analogies as well as to TV references).
