“The Jeff Probst Show” has been voted off of the island.
CBS Television Distribution canceled the syndicated freshman talker hosted by the “Survivor” host.
“We believe Jeff is an incredible talent and that he and his dedicated producing team delivered quality episodes throughout the season,” CTD said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the audience isn’t there to support a second year. We are grateful to the entire staff, our affiliate partners and advertisers for their ongoing support of The Jeff Probst Show. Production and broadcast of original episodes will continue through the current season.”
Probst added in a statement, “I’m super bummed but extremely proud. The truth is all shows come to an end. Ours just ended a decade sooner than we had hoped.”
The announcement of the cancelation came the same day “Survivor” came back on CBS for its 26th (yes, 26th) season, with Probst hosting and exec producing.
The cancelation comes the week after Twentieth Television canceled Ricki Lake’s freshman talk show, which didn’t earn the ratings for a second season. However, one freshman talk show will get another season: Katie Couric’s talk show, which recently got an interview with shamed Notre Dame football star Manti Te’o, has been renewed.
