Looks like talk shows are multiplying to fill the void from departing mainstay gabfests, and to cut down daytime’s cost, which continues to spell more bad news for the remaining soap operas. Monday, CBS announced that Survivor host, Jeff Probst will be launching his own talk show in the fall of 2012!
According to EW.com, Probst, who was a contender to replace Regis Philbin with Regis and Kelly Live has now gotten his own solo slot. Probst stated, “I’m fascinated with human nature and thrilled that this show will allow me the opportunity to connect with real people and explore their stories on a personal level.”
Probst’s new show will debut around the same time as his former CBS stablemate Katie Couric’s, who has her new show set for launch on September 2012 on ABC.
