CLASHED: The 20 contestants on CBS's Survivor: Palau were quickly whittled down to just 17 on Thursday night's premiere episode. The castaways had just become acquainted with their new surroundings when host Jeff Probst said the initial immunity challenge won by Jolanda Jones and Ian Rosenberger (who were the first of the 20 to swim ashore) would last only 10 minutes, until they finished picking their two tribes. The last woman and man chosen, Wanda Shirk and Jonathan Libby, were eliminated from the show. The game's first challenge then pitted the Koror and Ulong teams against each other for team immunity, leaving Ulong to vote off a player. That ended up being Jolanda, in a 6-3 decision. Her parting words: "I am the oldest and I think differently than my tribe. It's an experience I think everyone should try."

The stalled movie career of Sylvester Stallone may get the jump-start it so desperately needs with the reactivation of his Rocky Balboa franchise. MGM has announced it is in negotiations with the actor-writer-director to present "Rocky VI," about the perennial boxing underdog. (The first "Rocky," in 1977, was a surprise hit -- and Oscar's Best Picture of the Year.) Stallone, 53, declined comment on the possibility of a new "Rocky," which MGM said would cost in the neighborhood of $30 million, making it (by studio standards) a low-budget movie.
