Former teen star Lisa Whelchel ("The Facts of Life") has sort of been flying under the radar so far on Survivor: Philippines (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2). Although there was a very sweet moment when she said how glad she was she had made friends there who liked her for her ... because they're too young to have seen "Facts of Life."
This week, however, Lisa starts doing some plotting and backstabbing. And there's a big confrontation at the Tribal Council that leads to a revelation.
So far, it's been a very good season of "Survivor."
