'Fear Factor'

Donkey Semen Episode

Off the NBC Schedule

1/30/2012 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Donkey semen will not be served on network TV tomorrow night -- the"Fear Factor" episode featuring the stunt has been yanked ... at least according to a website where NBC posts its media releases.

The controversial episode is entitled, "Hee Haw! Hee Haw!" An NBC media release teased it by saying the contestants will eat "the unimaginable."

But the NBC website no longer lists that episode as airing tomorrow ... and instead lists a repeat of an episode entitled "Snake Bite" -- which first aired on January 2. 

We also checked two channel guides -- one in LA and one in NYC -- and both now list the repeat instead of the one with the donkey semen stunt. Additionally, promos for the episode are no longer posted anywhere on the Internet.

TMZ broke the story ... NBC had given 'FF' producers the thumbs up on airing the episode -- but according to our sources honchos at NBC and its parent company, Comcast, started having second thoughts after TMZ published details of the challenge.

We've made several calls to reps at NBC, Comcast, and Endemol -- which produces 'FF' -- but so far ... radio silence.
The good people at the peacock just got back to us -- NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt says, "I reviewed the episode late last week and decided it was a segment we should not air."

Sources at the network tell us Comcast was not involved in the decision.

LMAO! Next episode, "Who will shoot their own grandma for money and 15 minutes of fame?" FF has definately been pushing the envelope on what people call entertainment. It makes me think we're all going to end up like Idiocracy "I'm baitin in here". It's funny considering NBC okayed the episode, and comcast decided they know better then the thousand of fan out there. Oh, well, i personally lost interrest in FF before they were eating rotten cheese, etc. lol (BTW: Joe Rogan, you should stick to standup. Not that your a bad host, but I think your standup is better)

Everyone associated with fear factor is a sick, sick creep. A lot of animals have suffered or even been killed to make the show. The Fear Factor producers should be imprisoned.
