Why Is Survivor Not On For Two Hours????

It dawned on me the other day when I was watching Survivor that big time reality shows such as The Biggest Loser, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, American Idol (at times), and The Apprentice are all two hours long each week. The question I have is: why not Survivor????

After all unlike some of the above mentioned shows, Survivor is a 24 hour a day competition that could generate lots of additional viewing hours. Also considering that half the time we have two separate tribes (or more) and that doubles the amount of human interaction that takes place and that is tv waiting to happen. There would be plenty of material to throw into another hour easy. Especially the last few seasons, it has seemed to me that an episode of Survivor is very rushed. It begins with a quick rehash of that night's previous TC, goes to the next morning with some reflections, right into the reward and immunity challenges and than onto the next TC. Very rushed indeed.

Just a random thought I figured to share with you all. What do you think??????
