CBS Renews Four Popular Unscripted Series


CBS has renewed its hit series Survivor, The Amazing Race, Tough as Nails and Secret Celebrity Renovation for the 2022-23 broadcast season.

Survivor is a top-25 broadcast for CBS, delivering 7.59 million viewers in the fall after a season-long hiatus, and the network’s most-streamed reality series on Paramount+. Hosted by Jeff Probst, the series returned again on March 9 with a two-hour season premiere.

The Amazing Race amassed 5.42 million viewers this past season, and its streaming viewership was up 93 percent. Meanwhile, Tough as Nails, which celebrates everyday Americans who take pride in the calluses on their hands, averages 3.57 million viewers. Emmy Award-nominated Phil Keoghan hosts both series.

Hosted by Nischelle Turner (Entertainment Tonight), Secret Celebrity Renovation averaged 2.72 million viewers in its first season. The series follows celebrities in sport, music and entertainment on a journey back to their hometowns to gift a surprise home renovation to a person who helped guide them to success. In the next season, Rob Mariano (Survivor) joins the design team alongside Sabrina Soto (Design Star, Trading Spaces).
