The Jeff Probst Show will not survive to see a second season.
Original episodes of the series will continue to air through the end of Season 1. "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," a spokesman for CBS Television Distribution, which produced the show said in a statement. "We are grateful to the entire staff, our affiliate partners and advertisers for their ongoing support of The Jeff Probst Show."
Added Probst, "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 Jeff Probst Show is the second freshman talk show to get the ax, following The Ricki Lake Show. Anderson Live was also canceled earlier this year after two seasons. This TV season marked the entrance of several new daytime programs including Katie and The Steve Harvey Show, which have both already been renewed.
The 26th installment of Survivor, for which Probst has won four Emmys, kicks off Wednesday at 8/7c on CBS.
