"I'm super bummed but extremely proud," Jeff Probst says of short-lived daytime talk show
Jeff Probst has been voted off of the daytime-TV island by the viewing public.
"Survivor" host Probst's daytime talk show, "The Jeff Probst Show," has been canceled after one season, CBS Television Distribution said Wednesday.
The show will be allowed to run out its current season.
The show premiered in September and failed to gain much of an audience in a competitive time that also saw the premieres of talk shows from Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper and Ricki Lake. (Lake and Cooper's talk shows have also been canceled.)
"I'm super bummed but extremely proud. The truth is all shows come to an end," Probst said of the cancelation. "Ours just ended a decade sooner than we had hoped.”
“We believe Jeff is an incredible talent, and that he and his dedicated producing team delivered quality episodes throughout the season," CBS Television Distribution said in a statement. "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.'"
The one-hour talk show covered topics ranging from relationships and family dynamics to newsmakers of the day to families and individuals facing challenges.
