Jeff Probst to have own daytime talk show on CBS!



Looks like talk shows are multiplying to fill the void from departing mainstay gabfests, and to cut down daytime’s cost, which continues to spell more bad news for the remaining soap operas.  Monday, CBS announced that Survivor host, Jeff Probst will be launching his own talk show in the fall of 2012!

According to, Probst, who was a contender to replace Regis Philbin with Regis and Kelly Live has now gotten his own solo slot.  Probst stated, “I’m fascinated with human nature and thrilled that this show will allow me the opportunity to connect with real people and explore their stories on a personal level.”

Probst’s new show will debut around the same time as his former CBS stablemate Katie Couric’s, who has her new show set for launch on September 2012 on ABC.

    Just what we need – yet Another freakin talk show – UGH!
    If all the Networks care about is how cheap a show is during daytime –
    why not just have a test pattern between 9:00AM and 5:00PM?
    that would be real cheap and far more interesting than a talk show –
    they might as well because when the last Soap is gone,
    I will be done with Daytime TV.

      Exactly what I was going to say. Except for their remaining two soaps, which no doubt one will be gone to make time for this talk show, CBS has nothing but talk shows on day time now. Oh, forgot, and two dumb game shows, one which took Guiding Light’s place. Who is going to watch talk shows all day long? Not me and I bet a lot of other soap fans won’t either.

    Soaps were always a way for me to escape into a world of make believe. I really don’t want to watch people with real problems discussing them on daytime TV. Where is the fun in getting behind and rooting for your favorite character or couple? Or talking with others via message boards about how good/bad the current story line of the show is. I think putting on all these talk shows, judge shows, etc, plays into the hands of boredom and quiet, as no one will be talking about them. Frankly I like the test pattern comment above as a better solution to what Daytime executives are planning.

    Well Univision has no shortage on soaps and they are good. Instead of getting into General hospital i’ve been watching Zacatillo which airs at the same time. My spanish isn’t hat good but i understand enough to be entertained.

On yesterday’s GH, viewers saw the tender moment when Maxie (Kirsten Storms) delivered her baby, who is the bio-son of her late husband, Nathan West.

When Maxie finds out she had a boy to carry on the legacy of her beloved husband, she is overcome.

Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan), who left the series earlier this year, took to Twitter upon seeing the episode and the image of the little baby that is his on-screen offspring.

He expressed: “Welcome to the world, little one …. it’s a scary place sometimes, and i so wish i could have been there to show you all the good stuff. Your mother loves you,and will take care of you and teach you …. watch out for her her for me will ya?”

Aaawww.  So many GH fans have been touched by the gesture, and how nice it is that it makes the whole journey and end of Nathan’s West story heartbreaking and bittersweet.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
