CBS ORDERS 29th AND 30th EDITIONS OF "SURVIVOR" FOR THE 2014-2015 SEASON

Jeff Probst Signs New Agreement to Return as Host/Executive Producer

After 27 Cycles, the Series Continues to Outlast the Competition, Consistently Winning Its Time Period in All Key Ratings Measures and Ranking as the #2 Reality Series in Adults 18-49 on Broadcast Television

CBS has ordered two more editions of SURVIVOR to be broadcast during the 2014-2015 season. These will mark the 29th and 30th editions of television's longest running hit reality competition series.

Five-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst has signed a new agreement to return as host and executive producer. Probst has hosted SURVIVOR since its inception in May 2000.

After 27 seasons, 413 episodes and 406 castaways, SURVIVOR remains a gold standard of quality in television and a consistent ratings winner.

The most recent edition, SURVIVOR: BLOOD VS. WATER, delivered one of the most buzzed about installments in the history of the series as former players competed alongside their relatives for the title of Sole Survivor. The finale of SURVIVOR: BLOOD VS. WATER airs Sunday Dec. 15 (8:00-10:00PM ET/PT), followed by the one-hour live reunion show hosted by Jeff Probst, (10:00-11:00PM ET/PT).

Currently in its third year, SURVIVOR wins its Wednesday (8:00-9:00 PM) time period in all key ratings measures, averaging 11.29 million viewers, 3.1/09 in adults 18-49 and 4.1/11 in adults 25-54. It ranks as the #2 reality series on broadcast television in adults 18-49.

SURVIVOR became an instant phenomenon following its debut in May 2000 with ratings for its finale that summer exceeded only by the Super Bowl. The show's 10-year-run beginning in February 2001, helped ignite a rating renaissance for CBS on Thursday that eventually ended NBC's 20 years of ratings dominance on the night.

"We are thrilled to announce this landmark renewal for SURVIVOR, a groundbreaking show that changed the TV landscape and helped usher in a new era of ratings dominance for the Network," said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. "SURVIVOR continues to set the bar for outstanding production values, compelling storytelling while delivering fresh new adventures every season. The show's enduring success is a testament to the creativity and passion of Mark Burnett and Jeff Probst, and an amazing production team. We're proud to continue this incredible journey together."

"I am thrilled that our fans get to continue their love affair with SURVIVOR on CBS through 2015," said Executive Producer Mark Burnett. "This current season has become one of the most-loved seasons ever and I promise our fans to make season 29 and 30 even better... I LOVE SURVIVOR!!!"

"SURVIVOR has been blessed with incredibly loyal fans," said Host and Executive Producer Jeff Probst. "We make this show for them and I am thrilled that we get to do it again."

The groundbreaking reality series won an Emmy Award in 2001 in the category of "Outstanding Non-Fiction Program" (Special Class). Jeff Probst is a four-time Emmy Award winner in the category of "Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality Competition Series."

SURVIVOR is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst and produced by SEG, Inc. Mark Burnett and Jeff Probst are executive producers.
