Jeff Probst Gets Talk Show for Some Reason

By | 9 Comments

<a href=""> "Survivor" host Jeff Probst will host a daytime talk show starting in fall 2012 for some reason, according to several news outlets who nimbly worked quotes from the press release into their "breaking news!" stories. “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 said in a statement. “As I continue with Survivor, I am excited to extend my relationship with CBS with this new adventure in the world of daytime.” [...] With Survivor now filming its 23rd and 24th seasons in Samoa, many have wondered how long that show will continue. Since the program now films both of its installments during the summer, Probst could pull double duty and continue to host the reality franchise into fall 2012 and beyond while also doing his new talk show. Or, the still untitled new venture could end up being his transition off the island. [<a href="" target="_blank">EW</a>] For what it's worth, Probst has filled in for both Regis Philbin and Larry King, but that's not exactly a real testament to skill.
