'Fear Factor'

NBC Debating Donkey Semen ...

Episode in Jeopardy

1/28/2012 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0126_fearfactor_EX_TMZ_01
The world may never see "Fear Factor" contestants chugging donkey semen -- corporate heads at NBC and its parent company Comcast are having serious 11th hour talks about pulling the episode.

As TMZ first reported, contestants on the show -- shot last summer -- are challenged to drink a glass of donkey semen (and one of urine) ... and several of them did. The episode is scheduled to air Monday night.

According to our sources, some execs are getting cold feet, and discussions are ongoing this weekend about whether to air the episode. No word on their exact concerns, but an educated guess would be ... taste.

We've reached out to reps for NBC, Comcast, and Endemol -- the producers of FF ... so far, no word back.

Oh, come on! It's not like anybody watches that show anymore. It's like one of those "if a tree falls in the woods and nobody is around" things.

I hope they make an intelligent decision about this which would be don't show it. But I doubt that they will. TV execs produce nothing but trash anymore. All for the almighty dollar. Shame on anyone who would watch such nonsense/bs/crap.

I have not watched Fear Factor and had no intention to do so until I heard about this episode.

My DVR is already setup to record this episode. They would be silly to pull it. If so I will most likely not watch.

This show makes a mockery of the middle class. The 1% (ie.NBC and comcast execs)sit back and laugh at what some of those idiots would do for $50,000.

Well this is a no-brainer - just put a disclaimer before that part of the show giving something generic about how the next challenge is especially foul/disturbing/etc and strong viewer digression is advised.
