    Guys of course this was gonna get renewed. Its on the CW on a Friday and it comes on in the summer. It’s also been on for ten years, longer than Superantural. And it beat BATB last week and also tied HOD. What more can you expect from this show?

    @ Evan
    They have 2 dramas waiting in the wings, also Whose Line and another Canadian sitcom + some other reality shows. No chance Top Models comes back before next summer.

    My guess is that ANTM will probably air in the same slot Fridays at 9 next fall. My guess is maybe this for next season, assuming Tomorrow People and Originals are the only shows renewed from this current season.

    8:00 New Drama
    9:00 Supernatural

    8:00 Originals
    9:00 New Drama

    At least with their new line up they almost get an average of 1.0!

    ‘Currently, “America’s Next Top Model” is under license in over 100 markets around the world and has 20 international versions in production.’

    I’m sure that international airing counts as a big boost in money for the cw. Nikita was renewed for the same reason right? I doubt Nikita has 100 countries where the series is broadcast like ANTM.

    Good for them

    I think they should replace Tyra and all the judges. Carolina Herrera would be an excellent choice. And it would be great to see the J’s return along with Nigel. They were what made the show. This season has been a huge disappointment with the choice of models and the photo shoots. Hanging with bats? Men dressing like women and likewise? I like the men and women together but don’t care to see them in bed together. TMI!

    I’m loving the guys vs girls season. I haven’t watched ANTM in years and decided to catch up on the latest season on hulu + and I’ve watched the entire season in one go. The new judges are great, I love the viewer choice aspect to the show and I love the female/male dynamic in the house. I hope this is the revamp ANTM needed. I may catch the rest of the seasons I missed.
