The show won four Emmys in all, with additional nods for editing, sound mixing and cinematography.

Probst, whose Survivor wasn't nominated in the reality competition category, still pulled out a victory as outstanding reality or reality-competition program host. His competition included American Idol's Ryan Seacrest, The Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan and Dancing With the Stars' Tom Bergeron.

Deadliest Catch, which documents deep-sea crab fisherman, averaged 2 million viewers in the 18-49 demo this past summer.

The program has documented several serious, real-life incidents including the deaths of Captain Phil Harris and Time Bandit crew member Justin Tennison.
