'Survivor,' 'The Amazing Race' picked up for another season
As expected, CBS announced today that it has ordered two more cycles of Survivor, which will celebrate its 20th edition Feb. 11 with the much-anticipated Heroes Versus Villains. Survivor is now the longest-running reality competition series. Meanwhile, the network also gave a thumbs-up to a 17th edition of The Amazing Race — the 16th season returns Feb. 14 with 11 teams of two that include Big Brother’s Jordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder.
No word yet, however, on whether Survivor host Jeff Probst will sign on for the 21st and 22nd editions. The contract for the two-time Emmy winning host is up this season.
