As I try to recover from a common cold, I started to watch a new season of Survivor. The most successful reality tv show. 

For whatever reason, I get addicted to the show when I start to watch it. There is something about the physical challenges, mental challenges and of course the rest of it. 

From the various reality shows over the years, Apprentice UK and Survivor have consistently entertained me. Apprentice UK is actually very educational when it comes to business.

I find myself wondering what the secret sauce is for the successful shows that consistently are able to deliver entertainment season after season. With so many options out there, it can't be easy to uncover what can work for many generations.. and keep people from changing the channel. This has to be more difficult than writing an interesting book.
