FOX Orders Up 'Temptation Island 2'

By SurvivorBlows, 03/02/2001 

Following great ratings for last night's finale, FOX announced Thursday it will be trying to tear apart more couples with a second season of "Temptation Island." (surprise, surprise, big shocker here)

"'Temptation Island has proven to be compelling television," says Gail Berman, FOX's president of entertainment. "We're pleased it's such a hit with our viewers, and we're scouting locations for the next adventure."

So far, no location, production schedule or possible premiere date has been set.

In a Wednesday conference to discuss the network's performance during the important February "sweeps" period, Fox Television Entertainment Group Chairman Sandy Grushow acknowledged that some advertisers were "squeamish" about buying time on "Temptation Island" due to the show's suggestive content.

"It's been a challenge in the marketplace, as it often is when you push the envelope with content," he said, "We went through this with 'Married ... With Children' 13 years ago." But he dismissed the notion that "Temptation Island" contradicted the network's policy of abandoning exploitative "shockumentaries" that once served as a Fox programming staple. "I don't consider this to be shockumentary programming," he said. "We work in a very dynamic business. Times change."
