New episodes were ordered after the new flash mob series impressed in its debut.
April 1, 2011
Fox has ordered eight episodes of Howie Mandel's reality series Mobbed. In what was aired as a single special last night, the show brought in impressive ratings, earning a 3.8 in adults 18-49 and 10.8 million overall viewers.
The show aired following American Idol, and it drew the largest audience and highest 18-49 retention rate of any post-Idol reality show in two years. That was obviously enough for the network to give the go-ahead for more episodes.
Mobbed is hosted by Howie Mandel and uses hidden cameras to capture flash mobs surprising a targeted individual. Mandel is also credited with co-creating the show's concept.

i have a perfect setup for MOBBED. this May, i will be married 35 years, never have i taken my wife on a big trip, never could afford it, we have raised 2 wonderful kids, now 31 and 29, and have 2 grandkids. but still , never been able to afford a bigger diamond ring, never been ablle to take her on a big trip that she so much deserves. i did have some money in a account with my business, but used it to fly my son here, who is dealing with some drug issues after having surgery on his back. long story, anyway, thoughts of me driving over to Port Canaverl or to Miami, say for a nights stay and take here down to shore side, do the MOB, load us on a boat, and off we go! always wanted to get on top of a trailer and sing "Wild Thing to her ! she is awesome, the girl of my dreams, and i thank God for such a wonderful soul mate. hope you guys can help me make our anniversary the biggest EVER! May 20th

would really like to get in touch with someone from the show about a friend of mine.. she is in 3rd stage breast cancer and they are not sure how long she has because she has the aggressive type. when she was young her adoptive parents made her put her son up for adoption or so she thought. they actually took the child and put him in an orphanage. she has made many attempts to find him with no luck. he would be 27 now and i would love to surprise her with gettin to meet him before she has no chance to do so. i watched the show mobbed and thought it would be a great idea to see if there would be a way you could help me in maker her dream of meeting him come true. thanks for the time and please let me know if you think you can help.

I heard Howie on the Stern show this morning and decided to watch the show"Mobbed". Love,love,love it! I was in tears!!! Can't wait til next week to see if the father and son reunite. My boyfriend said that's goin to be a hard one to do. Let's see if Mobbed can pull it off. We are not fans of a lot of the reality shows, but I really love this one!!!!

Howie is the perfect host for this program, I fell in love with him all over again. I have been telling everyone about this show & putting it all over my facebook. What a refreshing show...it's about time we have a show that is the whole package.

This show is taseless and terrible. At least the episode
Withe father / daughter disconnect. Obvious lack
of personal concern as opposed to ratings response. Who
Cares about the family situation as long as we can do
a flash mob show which is old hat now
