The Jeff Probst Show was an American syndicated talk show hosted by Survivor host Jeff Probst, who also serves as an executive producer. This was his first television talk foray, which is co-produced by Big Ticket Television, and distributed by CBS Television Distribution, which handles the distribution rights in the United States and Canada.[2] The hour-long program debuted on September 10, 2012.[3]

On February 13, 2013, CBS Television Distribution announced the cancellation of The Jeff Probst Show after only one season.[4] Despite the series finale airing May 22, 2013, unaired episodes were aired during the summer.[5]

Format[edit]

The program follows the same general interest format platform as Anderson Live, Katie and The Ricki Lake Show; the latter two debuted at the same time as Probst's.[6] Each episode is one hour long and centered on a topic in which guests and audience members interact about to find a common ground. On January 14, 2013, former Facts of Life star and Survivor: Philippines contestant Lisa Whelchel joined Probst as co-host for several episodes.[7]

"On The Couch"[edit]

Originally referred to as "Guys on the Couch", the "On The Couch" segment consists of a panel of guests taking questions from the audience or discussing current odd news topics.

"Ambush Adventure"[edit]

Jeff will randomly initiate an "Ambush Adventure" when he asks a guest on the show or an audience member to take a step outside their comfort zone. Prior to knowing what the Ambush Adventure is, the participant must say "yes". Once the participant agrees to the Ambush Adventure, they find out the adventure.
