Freshman Talk Show Canceled as Daytime Toll Mounts

Feb 14, 2013  •  Post A Comment

Another entry in the crowded field of freshman daytime talk shows has been canceled, as the casualty count climbs. Failing to survive to a second season is "The Jeff Probst Show," the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports.

The cancellation comes a week after "The Ricki Lake Show" was canceled by Twentieth Television.

Probst, who hosts CBS’s “Survivor,” said 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.”

CBS Television Distribution decided not to continue the show with Probst even though it had a two-year deal for distribution. Probst’s show never gained ratings momentum in the crowded daytime talk arena, the story notes.

  1. I guess Jeff didn’t learn the lessons from Survivor – he needed to outwit, outplay, outlast his competition. The tribe has spoken, err maybe not spoken :)
