One of the biggest surprises this December was the ratings success for the limited return of NBC’s once seminal reality series FEAR FACTOR.
Even though it’s not currently scheduled for mid-season, NBC Entertainment Chairman sees the series as a utility player for the network for years to come.
“FEAR FACTOR always seems to do well and it predates me,” says Greenblatt. “We actually ordered those episodes last summer because we worried we would have no NFL in the fall. I think we wanted the show to kind of expand on the stunts and the daring do of it. People like to see the snake cage and I’m happy to have those ratings. I think we have several hours of it which will run in the summer. It’s a show that will probably come and go as needed over the next couple of years.”
