Fox Affiliate Drops Temptation Island

By SurvivorBlows, 01/14/2001 

A Fox television affiliate in North Carolina has decided to drop the network's new "reality" series
"Temptation Island" after learning that one of the couples being enticed to break up on the show has a child, Fox officials said on Friday.

The decision by Raleigh, N.C.-based WRAZ-TV and its parent company, Capitol Communications, marks the sharpest rebuke so far of the program.

"WRAZ will not support a program that could potentially break up the parents of a young child," Tommy Schenck, the general manager of WRAZ, said in a statement issued by the station.

Fox officials said they knew of no other affiliates that plan to drop "Temptation Island," which premiered Wednesday to fairly strong ratings. The Raleigh-Durham-Fayetteville region served by WRAZ is the nation's 29th-largest TV market.
