According to a recent Daily Variety report, FOX continues to be happy with the ratings performance of its "Paradise Hotel" reality show and is all but confirming that the program will be back again next summer.

"I think 'Paradise Hotel' is underappreciated," FOX Television Entertainment Group Chairman Sandy Grushow told Variety. "I don't think there's a stronger unscripted show this summer in [the] adults 18-34 or teens [ratings]. I think there's a very good chance 'Paradise Hotel' will be back (next summer) given its performance."

"With 'Paradise Hotel,' we satisfied another goal, which is to create a summer (reality) franchise a la 'Big Brother' " added Grushow.
