LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - CBS said Wednesday it ordered two additional editions "Survivor," which will be broadcast next season marking the reality show's 23rd and 24th installments.

Three-time Emmy winner Jeff Probst, who has been with "Survivor" since the very beginning in 2000, has also signed a deal to continue as host and executive producer.

This season, "Survivor" moved from its Thursday time slot to Wednesdays at 8 p.m. "Survivor: Nicaragua," which aired last fall, averaged 13.6 million viewers. The current edition, "Redemption Island," averages 11.7 million viewers opposite Fox's "American Idol."
