    ANTM to End After Cycle 22

    Just breaking...

    ‘America’s Next Top Model’ To End After 22 Seasons

    by Nellie Andreeva
    October 14, 2015 1:03pm

    One of the longest-running reality series on broadcast, the CW’s America’s Next Top Model, is coming to an end, with the current Cycle 22 as its final season. The network has cancelled the series, opting not to pick up a 23rd season. The series finale of will air Friday, December 4.

    America’s Next Top Model premiered in May, 20 2003 on UPN, and was the first series to debut on The CW on Sept 20, 2006. The network is in discussions about doing a retrospective special that will air sometime in late 2016.

    “America’s Next Top Model was a successful franchise for two networks, first at UPN and then The CW, and it became not just a ratings hit, but a global pop culture phenomenon,” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. “I want to thank Tyra and Ken for all their years of success in establishing a show that was not just popular in the U.S., but all across the world.”

    Top Model has been the most successful reality series on the CW and the longest-running series on the network. The show, produced by Tyra Banks and Ken Mok, has comedown from its ratings heyday but still does decent business when delayed viewing is factored in. For premiere week, Top Model posted the biggest Live+7 percentage lift, +100%, doubling its Live+dame day number to rise to a 0.8 in adults 18-49.

    As much as I've been kvetching about this show, I will definitely miss it when it's gone.

    I watched some of C2, started watching regularly with C5, and caught up with C1 on DVD and C2 through C4 on VH1. (I might've missed a couple of episodes of C3, but I'm not sure.)

    I think I found FORT and started posting during C6, definitely was posting here by C7.

    I've read other articles that made it sound like Tyra tweeted she had decided 22 cycles was enough and she'd done everything she wanted to do with ANTM. In fact, that's how I first heard about it, and suspected the tweet was just a ploy to get CW to increase her budget for C23.

    However, the article posted above and others I've read make it sound like CW pulled the plug. Some were saying CW is trying to go for a male audience after successes with "The Flash" and "Arrow," cancelling shows like "Hart of Dixie" and "Beauty and the Beast" in favor of more straight-up action-oriented shows.




    I wonder if Tyra would do ANTM for another outlet (cable or streaming, I guess), or if she's truly done with it?

    And is there any chance the series will finally go to DVD or streaming?

    She tweeted that to get ahead of the articles that were to come regarding the cancellation. there are a few seasons I didn't tune in for. My favorite is still season 3.

    I'm not surprised. She basically made the whole thing into a joke to the point where it was just a disaster.
