NBC to Revive 'Fear Factor'

Paul Teledgy, head of alternative programming at NBC, told on Thursday that the network will be reviving the gross-out reality competition, which originally ran from 2001 to 2006.

According to Teledgy, the decision to revive the series after seeing the high ratings that reruns of the series were receiving on the network's sister cable channel, Chiller. After revisiting the series by watching a few reruns himself, Teledgy realized that the show's time has come. Again.
