Jeff Probst's Talk Show Cancelled After One Season
"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," a CTD spokesperson said, according to Deadline.
"I'm super bummed but extremely proud," Probst said. "The truth is all shows come to an end. Ours just ended a decade sooner than we had hoped."
The one-hour talk show covered topics ranging from relationships and family dynamics to newsmakers of the day to families and individuals facing challenges.
