CBS orders two more ‘Survivor’ cycles

Unscripted series to run through 26th season

CBS has ordered two more cycles of “Survivor.”

The long-running unscripted series is guaranteed to run through its 26th season while host-exec producer Jeff Probst has signed on for the coming seasons as well.

The series continues to prove its resilience on the CBS sked, holding up well this season despite stiff competition from Fox’s “The X Factor.” “Survivor: South Pacific” is averaging 12.27 million viewers, a 3.8/11 in adults 18-49 and a 5.1/13 in adults 25-54.

Jennifer Bresnan, exec VP of alternative programming at CBS, said “Survivor’s” format “guarantees fresh characters, exotic places and fascinating social dynamics every season.”

The network also announced that the next cycle of “Survivor,” its 24th, will premiere Feb. 15, airing Wednesdays at 8 p.m.

Having launched in May 2000, “Survivor” is the longest-running competition series in primetime. Probst has been with the series since the beginning and will broaden his relationship with CBS Corp. next fall with the launch of his own daytime talkshow via CBS TV Distribution.

“Survivor” is produced by SEG. Mark Burnett, Jeff Probst and David Burris are executive producers.
