Jeff Probst was unable to outlast in the game of syndication.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Probst’s daytime talk show, “The Jeff Probst Show” has been cancelled. CBS Television Distribution confirmed the move and Probst now joins Ricki Lake as high-profile rookie series that were unable to make it to year two.

“We believe Jeff is an incredible talent and that he and his dedicated producing team delivered quality episodes throughout the season,” said CTD in a statement. “Unfortunately, the audience isn’t there to support a second year. We are grateful to the entire staff, our affiliate partners and advertisers for their ongoing support of The Jeff Probst Show. Production and broadcast of original episodes will continue through the current season.”

The cancellation comes on the same day that “Survivor” returns on CBS for its 26th season with Probst as host.
