FOX extends 'Paradise Hotel' run for another six weeks
By Andrea Sellers, 07/17/2003
Are you one of the handful of people (based on the program's repeated 4th place timeslot ratings rankings) still interested in how Paradise Hotel is going to end? If so, you're going to have to wait at least six weeks longer, because the Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Fox has ordered another 12 episodes of the critically-panned train wreck.
And since the show has yet to announce how it will end or even what prize the contestants are competing to win, the producers are bragging that the additional six week extension to the original eight week run "will be seemless."
"We're delighted that the audience has found the show and that Fox has given us such a terrific support," executive producer Tom Gutteridge said. "We're thrilled to be extended so soon into our run." "Found the show" -- hey Tom, have you been following the ratings at all?
