NBC schedules additional 'Fear Factor' episodes for November sweeps
By Wade Paulsen, 10/12/2003
According to the Hollywood Reporter, NBC will air two special showings of Fear Factor during November sweeps in an effort to improve its demographics (especially in adults 18-34) and blunt other networks' programming.
One of the special Fear Factor shows will run on Tuesday, November 4, in place of struggling comedies Whoopi and Happy Family. The other, a 90-minute special, will air Monday, November 24, against the two-hour finale of The Next Joe Millionaire, preempting the drama Las Vegas.
We presume that the special episodes will come from the many special editions produced for the fourth season of Fear Factor, but NBC has not yet announced which shows will fill these slots.
