With yesterday’s news of the cancellation of CTD’s The Jeff Probst Show talker, sources say likely replacements for this fall include NBCU’s Access Hollywood Live, Disney-ABC’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Warner Bros.’ Bethenny and Sony Pictures Television’s Queen Latifah.
CBS TV Distribution Wednesday that its freshman syndicated talker The Jeff Probst Show will not be returning next season. Original episodes will continue to air through the end of the season.
Survivor host Jeff Probst’s new talk show is in trouble after just one week. Ratings for the new show started out weak and have gone downhill ever since, according to preliminary ratings. Representatives for Queen Latifah’s new talk show — set to begin next year — have quietly been calling TV stations around the country offering to take over for Probst as soon as his contract is up, according to sources.
Marilyn Zielinski and David Goldman are named senior supervising producers; Brian Campbell named director of the upcoming CBS Television Distribution syndicated talk show.
