During last week's brutal reward challenge on "Survivor: Micronesia" (8 p.m. EDT on CBS) half of the Survivors suffered injuries, from Chet's minor head trauma to Jonathan's deep gash in his leg, which had to be sewn up by paramedics. The producers have to be kicking themselves for creating such an injurious obstacle course and then making the contestants complete it while tethered to each other, particularly since previews seem to indicate that Jonathan's wound will become severely infected, a turn that can only land him in the hospital and off the show. Meanwhile, the teams seem to be doing their best to weaken their own ranks, with two able-bodied (but apparently dimwitted) contestants, Mike B. and Joel, exiting prematurely. Whatever happens, all we ask is that swimming-and-fishing wonder boy Ozzy prevails!


Jamie Kennedy guest stars on a new episode of "Reaper" (9 p.m. EDT on the CW), Jin and Sun are featured on "Lost" (9 p.m. EDT on ABC), and Katie appears on hospital reality show "Post-Op" in the second episode of smart Canadian drama "Terminal City" (9 p.m. EDT on Sundance). Bickering marrieds Jake and Amy are back on "In Treatment" (9:30 p.m. EDT on HBO) and the second season of "Lil' Bush" premieres (10:30 p.m. EDT on Comedy Central).
