Tyra Banks’ hit reality show, CW’s America’s Next Top Model, boasts sixteen seasons on air—a great accomplishment for a show that’s one of the first of its kind.
Though there are several international editions of the show, ratings for the original series, which features elaborate photo shoots, catty conflicts and teary confessionals, have plummeted. According to MediaWeek, ANTM‘s ratings are down 39% compared to one year ago.
The CW network is responding to the low ratings with an All-Star seventeenth season. The series, which debuts in the Fall, will bring back past favorites who didn’t win the title for a second chance at competing.
