'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.

Never understood how eating something gross qualified as a "fear". It is just disgusting. The producers should go to jail for bad taste.

I quit watching the new season of Fear Factor during the middle of the first episode, the episode where they tried shoving the c*rnho*lers on us! It was so predictable and agenda'd! THIS semen episode is more deviancy! PERVS!

Good. That's BEYOND stupid. One has to wonder what kind of brainless trogolodytes would do it?

I will bet each of you $100 that the people who drank the donkey semen are 'progressive' Democrats. Democrats are identified by a donkey right?

Conservatives obviously don't swallow donkey semen. Heck it's hard enough to get a Republican to swallow human semen let alone a donkey's.

I really don't see how this is any grosser than drinking animal blood or eating cow eyeballs which they have done in the past.

Ongoing discussions? What is so complex that the miscreants at NBC are having ongoing discussions? Seems like is should be one discussion: "man that was a bad idea, what were we thinking? Making people drink the sperm and urine of a jack ass is gross and maybe illegal in some states, even if they are stupid enough to do it. Cancel the episode." Do these idiots even have a clue?!? Holly-weird for sure.

I can't even begin to twist my brain around this. It sickens me to see how producers will push the limits because they know there are people out there desperately wanting money. Kind of puts me in mind of pimp and prostitutes.

There should not be any debate. The writers for the show have gone over the top and should be fired. The network should have canceled the story line prior to the filming. They should forget about eating creepie crawlies and drinking some obnoxious concoction. There are better story lines for fear factor that they have never touched on... what about the fear of some entity....the boogie man, yetti, ghost, etc. They could well take a hint from Arch Obler. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSmEh8TxswQ

NBC is off the hook. Think about it. This would be a historical first for television. NBC will go in the history books for the first in broadcasting history to have people drink the sperm and urine of a jack ass. I don't think there are even any mainstream porn producers that can make the claim. What an accomplishment that would be for NBC. That's quite a title to lose over some high-minded questions of decency. Keep the round-table discussions going. And Harvey, please change the pic on the next inevitable breaking story. Sheesh that's rough.

Disgusting, revolting, gone too far. Prime Time Non-cable Television DOES NOT have to stoop to such levels for ratings. Leave this crap to the Jack Ass Movies...
