Survivor: Amazon

Great reality shows take a single, provocative question and brilliantly carry it to an extreme. In this reinvention of the granddaddy of modern reality games, the extreme was the Brazilian jungle, and the question as old as sexual reproduction: "Who's better, women or men?" The sixth season of Survivor recaptured the watercooler-worthiness of the original. (A woman won, by the way. I'll leave the "Who's better?" answer up to you.) (CBS)
