Model renewed for two more seasons.
Get ready for the next next next top model, and the next next next next top model, as UPN has renewed America’s Next Top Model for two more seasons. A network press release says the show “has become a monumental success for UPN, delivering record-breaking ratings and triple-digit growth in key demos.” Of course, this is UPN, where more than a dozen viewers breaks records, but the show “has ranked first in its time period each week during the current cycle among women 18-34,” according to the network. Production and casting on the third season will begin “soon.” The press release summarizes the show like this: “The series follows participants of various backgrounds, shapes and sizes while they live together in a New York loft and compete in weekly tests as they vie for a modeling contract.” All true, assuming “shapes and sizes” means matchstick thin (“regular”) and stick thin (“plus-sized”).
