'Survivor' renewed for two more seasons: Jeff Probst talks about the future

The tribe has spoken. Only in this case that tribe is CBS and what it is saying is that it is renewing the long time reality hit Survivor for two more editions — seasons 29 and 30 — to air in the fall of 2014 and spring of 2015. (Season 27 of Blood vs. Water has its finale this Sunday night, while season 28 was shot last summer in the Philippines and will air in spring 2014.) READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Katie from 'Survivor' on pulling the dreaded white rock

Paschal English got some company last week when Katie Collins became the second Survivor contestant ever to be ousted from the tribe after a colored-rock pulling tiebreaker. Her exit from Survivor: Blood vs. Water followed last night when she was beaten out by her own mother at Redemption Island. Katie called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to chat all about her time on the island, including her decision to chance it with the rocks, whether any part of her did not want to give her mother the okay to beat her, and why she is a bit worried about Kat after boyfriend Hayden went on about how “hot” she looked on the jury. And now you can listen to the entire interview right here and right now on the InsideTVPodcast. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst breaks down the penultimate episode

Each week, host Jeff Probst answers a few questions about the most recent episode of Survivor: Blood vs. Water.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I was wondering how Tina was going to handle this mother vs. daughter duel. My take was that Tina was just too competitive to actually lay down and throw it. Being there, what was your take, and how did Katie seem to feel to you when Tina asked her if it was okay to knock her out?
JEFF PROBST: I wasn’t sure how Tina was going to handle it. I think it would have been a much tougher decision if Katie had shown her mom that she really wanted to stay in the game. In that case, I do think Tina would have stepped down. I think it would have been difficult but I think she would give Katie the opportunity to get back in the game. My take on Katie is that she did Survivor for her mom and for the shared experience, but not because she loves the competition. In that sense I think it was easier for Tina because she knew that her daughter really was okay being knocked out of the game.

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst on that CRAZY tribal council


Each week, host Jeff Probst answers a few questions about the most recent episode of Survivor: Blood vs. Water.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tyson has the immunity idol again! It seems like the players that get it once often get it a second time, too. As a producer, are you hoping that immunity idols fall to different players over the course of a season? 
JEFF PROBST: The only thing we hope for is that an idol gets found!  Idols add such an unpredictable dynamic to the game that it really doesn’t matter who has it – you just want it in the game so there is the chance that it may be used.  Even the mere chance that it may be used can create layers of additional drama for the players and the audience.

'Survivor': Ousted Vytas talks about Laura's 'low blow' that knocked him out of the game

Vytas Baskuaskas had his spot seemingly secured for another few days on Survivor: Blood vs. Water. Laura Morett had already won the Redemption Island duel, but he was well ahead of Tina Wesson in the loser-is-eliminated battle. Then he tried to sneak a peek at Laura’s completed puzzle. Then Laura blocked and twirled it so he couldn’t. And then she went one step further, giving Tina the answers so she could get her biggest competition out of the game. It was a savvy strategic move, but a brutal way for Vytas to be handed his proverbial walking papers, which explains why he refused the post-duel hug. The ousted Vytas called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to share his feelings on the controversial move — and those feelings are still conflicted. “I was pretty bummed when it happened,” says Vytas. “It’s Survivor, man. It’s a game of low blows and it was a low blow. And as long as you don’t get called out on it, it’s not against the rules. So kudos to them for taking me out.” READ FULL STORY

'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' season 9 teaser: 'Our family has never been stronger' -- VIDEO

If you thought the Kardashians were going to run out of drama anytime soon, you clearly have not seen the new teaser for season 9 of their reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Between Kris and Bruce giving their kids the “We’re better as friends” speech to Lamar saying, “I would do anything to be accepted back by you guys,” it looks like Kim won’t be the source of all drama this year. Although, the teaser also gives us a sneak peek at Kanye’s proposal, so it promises to be a year of ups and downs. As Kim puts it, “We are a ride-or-die family.”

Watch the new teaser below:

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst on Laura's controversial move

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the most recent episode of Survivor: Blood vs. Water.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Very interesting dynamic here at the Redemption Island duel as Vytas tries the old copy-off-the-person-that-has-already-finished trick, yet Laura not only spins her stacked cubes so he can’t copy, but also goes all Mom Power and gives the answers to Tina to get the threat of Vytas eliminated. A very sly strategic move to help control the competition you face in the future as you try to get back in the game. Tell me your reaction when you saw this going down.
PROBST: My reaction was mixed. As a general philosophy we always strive to have minimal rules. It’s their world — a social world in which your relationships are key to winning — and we want them to decide how that world works. So when creating a challenge, we always consider the cheating element and if we should do anything to help prevent it from happening, but we never want to go so far as to interfere with the social elements of the world. When we get into the individual part of the game (post merge), or a situation like Redemption Island, which is also about individuals and not groups — we are even less likely to get involved. But, we did experiment with using a blind on this challenge and it did no good as the contestants could simply step back and still share information with one another. So we let it go.

From a story point of view it’s obviously a fantastic moment because it speaks to the essence of Survivor —social politics. Vytas was up against two moms. The moms ganged up on the single guy. It’s a simple as that. It’s no different than had they voted him out. You can certainly make an argument that he didn’t get a fair chance in the duel. But Survivor isn’t always about what’s right or wrong — it’s about the rules of the world. And since turnabout is fair play, if either Tina or Laura M get to the end and Vytas is on the jury, payback might cost them a million dollars. Their rules. Their world. READ FULL STORY

Meet Dorothy, Morgan, Roxy, Brendan, and Jonny, aka, the #Richkids of Beverly Hills. They’re just like normal 25 year olds…oh who are we kidding? There isn’t anything normal about washing your hair with Dom Perignon or having a bar tab of over $10,000.


InsideTV Podcast: Aras talks about the 'gut-wrenching' betrayal on 'Survivor'

As a previous winner of Survivor, Aras Baskauskas knew he would be a target when he returned to play Blood vs. Water. But he didn’t see it coming when he was voted out of the tribe a few weeks back. And he certainly didn’t see being betrayed by one of his closest allies in the game — Gervase. Now that he has been eliminated from the game after losing the duel at Redemption Island, Aras called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to break down how, why, and where it all went wrong.

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst weighs in on Ciera and Monica's big moves

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the most recent episode of
Survivor: Blood vs. Water.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I can see why Ciera voted out her mom to stay with the majority and not make waves. What I’m more interested in is your take on Ciera basically asking her mom to throw the challenge at the final 6 and not win immunity because she would then feel vulnerable. Would you ever ask a loved one to do that or agree to do that if a loved one asked you?
JEFF PROBST: I think Ciera is showing herself to be much more shrewd than I first thought. Or she’s learning as she goes. Or maybe both. I think Ciera’s gut is right. Laura is a major threat. She just seems unbeatable and the only way she lasts to the end is to win, win, win. So Ciera is looking long term. If we want a shot at the money, you have to fall on the sword. To wait only increases the odds that Ciera gets voted out. If Ciera can show her alliance she’s with them, she might buy herself another Tribal. READ FULL STORY
