Top Model 4 debuts in March; show has been renewed for fifth and sixth seasons.
The show that has become UPN’s version of Survivor is sticking around for a long time to come. The fourth season of America’s Next Top Model will debut on March 2, and UPN is renewing the series for two more seasons. UPN President Dawn Ostroff said, “The three cycles have broken ratings record. Additionally, the move to Wednesdays has increased ratings among young women in the triple digits.” Other reality shows are also headed to the network; the search for a temporary new TLC member, R U the Girl with T-Boz & Chilli, will kick off this summer. However, according to TV Week, Ostroff said that Amish in the City will not be returning.
