The revived reality series falls short of its predecessor.
May 15, 2012
NBC has cancelled Fear Factor - again. The revived reality competition only aired six episodes in a comeback that didn't work out nearly as well as the show's original incarnation.
When Fear Factor premiered back in 2001 it was an unexpected hit for NBC, a network not known for airing reality shows. Its success continued for a few seasons, but as years passed the show's format became stale and it was cancelled in 2006 after six seasons and 144 episodes.
NBC surely hoped to rekindle some of Fear Factor's original success, however it was not to be. The show quickly came and went, and was left off of the network's 2012-2013 schedule.

I loved fear factor and was so excited to have it come back. I dont know whats up with people now days thinking its "wrong and gross" thats the whole point of it. Now people think its ok to have shows like 16 and pregnant to make having a child as a child look like an awesome thing. WTF.

Growing up fear factor was my favorite show. having it come back on the air was the best thing, not only did I want tho watch the show but I wanted to try out as well. Unfortunately our generation would rather watch stupid slutty/tools party and act folks. :-( I would have been down to do any stunt :'(

This blows. And this is why I quit watching anything on primetime tv. NBC, you suck. You lost a viewer. That won't matter to the network. But I'm done. RIP Fear Factor. You will be missed.

I was so excited to see Fear Factor back on, but to my dismay they decided to do stupid couple Fear factor I have always hated couples Fear Factor specials and now they created Fear Factor as an entire couples show. I was so annoyed by this, that's probably why they cancelled it again. I am still sad about it though.

Its sad that my favorite show is cancelled again!!! That's how was me and my dads show. My dad passed away in 2006 and it sucks that his and my show is over. I was so excited I actually cried the first episode of the new season because it was back and now I have nothing left to remember my dad by, they certainly don't know what good tv is anymore. So disappointed :,(
