Probst received the news on Valentine's Day. CBS Television said "no" to second season of the show. "Unfortunately, the audience isn't there to support a second year," CBS said in a statement.
Host Jeff Probst was said to be "super bummed." He added that he was proud of the show, but disappointed it ended "a decade sooner than we had hoped."
A week earlier, The Ricki Lake Show got the same news. Twentieth Television said, via statement, that it was "simply not able to breakthrough the crowded talk show marketplace."
Host Ricki Lake and her show will continue through September 2013 before bowing out.
This does mean our first prediction of 2013 has occurred, which we called the "Daytime Tipping Point."
By the summer, expect a number of daytime casualties, we said. We think both The Jeff Probst Show and Steve Harvey will be gone by then.
Well, Harvey carries on while Lake is washed away.
