TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - The alliance between Canadians and the world's longest running reality show is stronger than ever. Global's Survivor: South Pacific surged ahead of the competition for the third week in a row to win the night - and beat The X Factor - with over 2.2 million viewers (2+, national). The perennial fan favourite's outstanding performance also helped it win in all four key markets, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton (A18-49).
