Midterm Mayhem episode 18: Senators on a desert island! Sexy costumes! Nazis!

'Rival Survival' begs the question: Can we solve partisan gridlock by sending all of Congress to a desert island?

Because the depths of reality TV can never be fully plumbed, Discovery Channel is airing a show called “Rival Survival.” The premise: Two senators – one Democrat, one Republican – go to a deserted island and learn to do things together. You know, like the rest of us learned in kindergarten. Anyway, we talked to those two senators and asked if rubbing two sticks together is a more effective way of getting Congress to pass a budget.

Watch “Midterm Mayhem” LIVE Sunday-Thursday at 9:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. PT on the Fusion network and streaming at fusion.tv/mayhem.
