America's Next Top Model To End After 22 Seasons
America’s Next Top Model premiered May 20, 2003 on UPN, and was the first series to debut on The CW on Sept 20, 2006. The network is in discussions about a retrospective special to air in late 2016.
Top Model has been the most successful reality series on the CW and the longest-running series currently on the network. The show, produced by Tyra Banks and Ken Mok, has come down from its ratings heyday but still does decent business when delayed viewing is factored in.
For premiere week, Top Model posted the biggest Live+7 percentage lift of any program, +100%, doubling its Live+same day number to rise to a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. Additionally, Top Model launched a very successful format that has been produced in over 30 countries.
