CBS picks up 'Survivor' for two more cycles
"Survivor" is living up to its name.
CBS announced today that it had renewed the reality show for two more seasons -- its 19th and 20th editions (20th season, how is that possible?). And host Jeff Probst, who won an Emmy for his work on the show last fall, will continue his duties running challenges, Tribal Council and uttering the phrase, "The tribe has spoken."
The renewals should not come as a surprise. Currently in its 18th installation, "Survivor" continues to win its Thursday 8 p.m. time period in all key demographics.
