FOX (Wednesdays, 9:30 pm ET)


Nine strangers are brought together in an underground bunker that has the ugly, blue-metallic design of something in a horror film—perhaps a secret lab where a mutant germ has seeped out of a test tube and turned everyone into an argumentative idiot. The goal is to decide which player deserves to go home with a very nice $1.5 million prize, but based on what criterion of worthiness? There are endless rules, votes and vaguely sinister twists: In episode 2, one player was branded an "outcast" and required to put on some sort of shaming janitorial uniform after it was revealed he'd spent time in a mental ward. The show makes Survivor look like a utopia.
