Jeff Probst's Show Is Dead

All the talk shows introduced post-Oprah this past fall have failed. The talk show is dead.

Ever seen Graham Norton OP? Thought not.

by Anonymousreply 102/13/2013

I condole him by resurfacing his nude photos.

Probst's show is deadly dull. Who thought he'd be a good talk show host?

By comparison, he makes Julie Chen seem as fascinating as Garbo.

Your post makes no sense. Graham Norton's show is in the UK, and he's had a show since the late 90's when Oprah was still on.

Jeff, apparently, is NOT a survivor. Saw this coming a mile away in the NY Metro area. Hurricane Sandy updates pre-empted his show so often I thought he had been canceled a long time ago. It got to the point that any possible threatening rain drop or snow flake prompted NBC to move Steve Harvey's and Ellen's shows up an hour so that the News started at 4 pm.

Didn't Ellen's talk show start post-Oprah?

by Anonymousreply 802/13/2013

R8 Ellen's been on since 2005; Oprah didn't go off the air until 2011.

I can't believe networks keep trying to create new talk shows. Talk shows are so 90's and the market is already oversaturated. At the end of the day, a talk show is a talk show is a talk show.

I still don't know how Rachael Ray's show is still on.

Dead? You mean like AIDS dead in 1986 dead or AIDS dead in 1994? or AIDS dead in 2013?

Or Magic Johnson AIDS dead?

Excuse me?

So you're saying he could still have a career in daddy porn?

by Anonymousreply 1202/14/2013

His breathless, golly-gee-whiz delivery was annoying, as if fake enthusiasm itself could sustain the show. His anecdotes boring. I'd like to have a dollar for everyone watching whe mumbled, "Is he gay?".

Not to worry. I will console him.

Now that I have seen his naked photos, if they are real I am sorry he is gone

by Anonymousreply 1602/14/2013

I've never seen those nude photos of Jeff Probst. More often than not they turn out to be fake.

by Anonymousreply 1702/14/2013

The Jeff Probst nudes have been around almost as long as Survivor has.

The general consensus is they are real. No conflicting "original" has ever surfaced.

Supposedly taken by his "bitter" ex-wife who he dumped soon after his survivor success.

The second picture is the textbook definition of "presenting."

Katie Couric's talk show is doing well and has been renewed for another season.

OP, saying the talk show is dead is similar to people who say soap operas are dead when there are four major soap operas every day and All My Children coming back via the web. Neither talk shows nor soap operas are dead.

And although not started after Oprah left, there are a whole bunch of talk shows in late night - Leno, Letterman, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, the Irish guy who has his own show.

With yesterday's news of the cancellation of The Jeff Probst Show, sources say likely replacements for this fall include NBCU’s Access Hollywood Live, Disney-ABC’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Warner Bros.’ Bethenny and Sony Pictures Television’s Queen Latifah.

He's cute

I didn't know he had aids

They announced Katie's show has been picked up for a 2nd season. What a lot of people don't know is Katie's contract specified she would have 2 seasons to develop her show. None of the other talk show hosts had a deal like this.

R20, we're talking daytime, and the networks rolled out a ton of daytime talk shows. Only two have survived.

Try 2003.

by Anonymousreply 2602/15/2013

R1, please go the fuck away. Graham Norton is never going to happen outside the miserable, clammy little island you call home.

If he DID make his way onto basic U.S. television, it'd only be via some trash network like Bravo which isn't watched by people who read books and actually think.

by Anonymousreply 2702/15/2013

Remember when Jeff was the host of Rock N Roll Jeopardy on VH1? Now he's a movie director and author! I'm guessing a fashion line isn't too far behind.

by Anonymousreply 2802/15/2013

Jeff is the straight man's Seacrest.

by Anonymousreply 2902/15/2013

R27, Graham Norton is already on basic US television, on BBC America. Your meltdown is unwarranted.

by Anonymousreply 3002/15/2013

Thank god. Seems every time I go to the gym I get there just as his annoying all-about-me show is blaring in the locker room. Real incentive to change quickly and get moving.

by Anonymousreply 3102/15/2013

Really unfortunate that he went this route instead of replacing Regis (same can be said for Anderson) -- they both lost patience just before all their years of waiting might have paid off for at least one of them. I still think Regis did it that way just to f-ck with them.

Time for a game show revival!!!

by Anonymousreply 3302/15/2013

The new Let's Make A Deal with Wayne Brady is a good game show. Wayne's a pretty good singer and they manage to work that into most of the episodes. It's well-produced and more entertaining than Price Is Right. They need to start filming it in widescreen though.

Yep r26, r8's query was only off by a mere 8 yrs!

by Anonymousreply 3502/15/2013

Nice body but really unattractive cock, with that long web-like curtain of skin from the shaft to his (admittedly nicely) low-hanging balls, to his itty-bitty thimble-sized cut cock-head.

Being big isn't always enough.

by Anonymousreply 3602/15/2013

He's creaming himself over John Stamos today, if anyone cares.

by Anonymousreply 3702/18/2013

And John just congratulated him on his dead-in-the-water show.

by Anonymousreply 3802/18/2013

There is something off about those nudes, I would bet it's photoshopped.

by Anonymousreply 3902/18/2013

And yet, despite that monster cock, he's the personification of the bossy bottom...

by Anonymousreply 4002/18/2013

Ricki Lake's show is done after this season too, as is Anderson's.

by Anonymousreply 4102/18/2013

I guess he is not a survivor.

Why hasn't this no talent been outed?

R21 didn't Queen Latifah already have a talk show.

by Anonymousreply 4502/18/2013

Yes r45, for a few years at the turn of the century.

by Anonymousreply 4602/18/2013

and don't forget about my acclaimed talk show!

by Anonymousreply 4702/18/2013

The only "talk" shows that are going to make it now are: 1) Late Night, because it gives people something to stare at after they've fucked; 2) frau shows- recipes, bedwetting, skin cancer, etc. and 3) the Maury Povich/ Steve Wilkos-type shows for the dummies, all about DNA results anad cheating and throwing chairs.

They even cancelled my primetime talk show, and I am the new Queen of All Media!

Unfortunately, Kathy Griffin's talk show is now in its second season.
