With The Amazing Race, Survivor, and Big Brother all off the air for a good while, CBS is now turning to another reality show to fill in the tracks. Tough as Nails is coming back with season 2, and it will be happening a little bit earlier than some people would have expected.
If you look below, you can see that the new season is going to arrive on Wednesday, February 10 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. This is primary network real-estate, as the show is coming back in the winter and at a time when a lot of viewers should be around to watch. That’s exciting, and it feels like a natural fit alongside some other shows in SEAL Team and SWAT.
The video below does not necessarily give you a great sense of what’s coming up, but we do not anticipate the basic premise or structure of the show being all that different. This is a competition-based reality series that celebrates hard-working everyday Americans. It’s a salt-of-the-earth battle between people you rarely ever seen on reality TV elsewhere.
We do think that after season 1, there could be a few different evolutions to what Tough as Nails is as a program. Think in terms of some changes to competitions, or at the very least a better understanding of what viewers want. We also would imagine the casting pool being a little bit broader than ever — because a season has already aired, people out there may have a greater sense that they can trust Tough as Nails to paint them in a favorable (or at least realistic) light.
We’ll have some more insight on Tough as Nails as get a little closer to its premiere — we’re certainly curious to see what they bring to the table this time around!
