One more talker down, soap fans! After The Ricki Lake Show failed to get a second season, news today from CBS Television Distribution is as expected, The Jeff Probst Show has gone down too!
The Survivor host who attempted to make his talk show an adventure island on to itself, stated about his series cancellation,” “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.”
CBS Television studios issued this statement, “We believe Jeff is an incredible talent, and that he and his dedicated producing team delivered quality episodes throughout the season. 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.”
