CBS dominated Sunday night’s primetime schedule with its ”Bachelor”-esque finale of ”Survivor: All-Stars,” in which Amber won both Boston Rob’s hand in marriage and the $1 million jackpot. Early Nielsen numbers show an estimated 24 million people watched the two-hour-plus series finale, while the live reunion show that followed was an even bigger draw, with 25 million. Those are the best numbers for a ”Survivor” finale since the ”Survivor: Marquesas” wrap-up two years and four competitions ago. Next Thursday’s ”All-Star” postscript episode – which will reveal the winner of an audience-favorite vote, and another $1 million prize – will compete with another big finale, the end of ”Frasier,” on NBC. Oh, and CBS is already accepting contestant applications for the fall edition of ”Survivor” on the network’s website.
