Missouri NBC affiliate pulls 'Fear Factor' horse rectum episode


By Reality TV World staff, 01/09/2003 

Zap2It.com reports that an NBC affiliate in Missouri pre-empted Monday's (January 6) episode of "Fear Factor," in which contestants were asked to eata piece of horse rectum. Mike Scott, president and general manager of KYTV in Springfield, Mo. acknowledges that the stunt show regularly pushes the envelope of good taste, but the horse-rectum stunt "seemed over the line."

KYTV made the decision to pull the episode Monday. Because of the abbreviated time the station had to find replacement programming, Scott says, reruns of old shows "Dragnet" and "McHale's Navy" ended up running in its place. Scott says he notified NBC of the decision, and the network didn't object. NBC had no comment on the matter.
