This is turning out to be another good season of "Survivor" (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), and Utahn Sierra Dawn-Thomas is still in the game.

There was a close call a couple of episodes, but mostly she's been flying under the radar. Which isn't a bad place to be at this point in the season.

In tonight's episode, the game takes a toll on one tribe; castaways try to pull their way to safety during a physical immunity challenge.

• Also tonight, it's the regular-season finale for the Utah Jazz, who host the San Antonio Spurs (8:30 p.m., ROOT).

The Jazz have already secured a spot in the playoffs, but they definitely have something to play for tonight. If Utah wins and the L.A. Clippers lose the Kings, the Jazz will finish fourth in the Western Conference and get homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
