Men versus women
POLITICS 10/04/2018 01:27 pm ET Updated 1 hour ago It’s a terrifying moment for a male-dominated party grounded in the idea that men are superior to women. By Emily Peck Don’t believe the hype: It’s not a “very scary time for young men in America,” as President Donald Trump said on Tuesday, responding to questions about his embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

At least the name is. The venerable reality show returns at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, KPIX, with a “David vs. Goliath” theme. As usual, there will be two tribes of 10 players. Those on the David tribe are people who have overcome adversity in their lives. They’ll be facing Team Goliath, made up of people who have capitalized on their individual advantages in a classic battle of the underdogs against the favorites. The twist this season is that every Goliath has an Achilles heel, while every David has a secret weapon.
