Few stayed for the Australian Outback after the Super Bowl

HOLLYWOOD — The Eye’s L.A. affil, KCBS, and radio stations Arrow 93 and KLSX 97.1 on Sunday hosted a giant Super Bowl party at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip complete with black leather-clad XFL cheerleaders, free drinks and food to kick off CBS’ “Survivor: The Australian Outback.”

More than 1,000 radio winners had appetizers and drank non-alcoholic drinks, while KCBS anchors and reporters held court by autographing 8×10 glossies for starstruck fans.

The halftime show included contests tied to “Survivor: The Australian Outback,” such as costumes closest to the region.

However, by the time the “Survivor II” aired most of the guests had left. Those who remained gathered cozily around the fire as Debb Eaton became the first to be voted off.

Among those present were KCBS G.M. John Severino; execs Marcia Carter Darden and Yvette Perez; CBS 2 News anchors Gretchen Carr, Harold Greene, Ann Martin and Jonathan Elias; reporters Jim Castillo, Joel Grover, Mike Boguslawski, David Sheehan; guests David Spade, Krista Allen, Sam Rubin and Joe Benson.
