Jeff Probst Wants More 'Survivor' (But Not Too Much More)

Jeff Probst
When 'Survivor' host Jeff Probst renews his contract, it's usually for two years (which comes out to be four seasons of the show). But when he renewed his contract with CBS and the show last week, he only renewed it for one year (two seasons). I'm not sure if this is because he doesn't want to commit to several seasons of the show or if it's a negotiating/contract thing. Could 'Survivor' continue without Probst as host? Or is he too big a part of the show?

'Survivor: Heroes & Villains' debuts on Thursday.

Could Survivor survive without Jeff Probst?
No, he's a big part of the show.463 (58.8%)
Sure, anyone can be replaced.190 (24.1%)
I think Conan should host Survivor!135 (17.1%)

Why is it that polls never have an option that reflect my opinion? There is a significant middle ground between "it would force the show off the air" and "Probst is utterly insignificant," which I think are the implications made by the 2 (serious) options.

Personally, I think the show would be just fine, but it wouldn't quite have the same feel. I'm sure I could grow accustomed to a new host, but it would still be weird.

Yes survivor need Probst. Not that he does something that somebody else can't but he is just a fabric of that environment.

Bob, for god's sake let Conan go. Unlike you, none of us are obsessed with Conan. You and Danny have certainly managed to drag TVsquad down quite a few notches. You can have your orgasmic fun whenever he shows up for work on some network.

I'd like to see the guy from Cash Cab get the job if Jeff doesn't want it any longer. Mike from Dirty Jobs is another one that would be good. Both of those guys seem to like the interaction with the people that are on their shows. Jeff is great but if he wanted to leave I'd be willing to give someone else a chance.

jeff has done a good job but i don't see him as irreplaceable. i like you two suggestions as to a replacement. i'd like mike better as i think that he has what i think would make him successful in that job.

My vote is to have Jeff replace Regis on "Live with Jeff and Kelly". He's a great co-host and I could gaze at his dimples every morning.

Can't even imagine Survivor without Jeff Probst. He is perfection as the host.
