CBS renews Survivor for 2 seasons and Amazing Race for 1

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/...5c021db7ff1269


CBS has ordered two more editions of "Survivor" and one more of "The Amazing Race."

"Survivor" will air for a 21st and 22nd cycle, with the Emmy-dominating "Race" earning a 17th round-the-world tour.

"Survivor" continues to win its time period every week, while "Race" posted year-over-year gains last fall, up 6% in the adult demo.

Between "Survivor," "Race" and summer's "Big Brother," CBS has three of the most durable reality franchises. Yet the network continues seeking something, you know, new. At least, a show created within the last five years. CBS hopes "Undercover Boss," airing after the Super Bowl, will be its next unscripted hit.
Now CBS needs to re-sign Jeff Probst since his contract is up after Heroes vs Villains.

As for the Amazing Race, I'm surprised they once again only renewed it for 1 cycle since it does pretty well on Sundays and they got alot of travel sponsorships like Travelocity.

Reading between the lines here suggests that if we don't watch "Undercover Boss", then "The Amazing Race" will get a Spring 2011 season.
