'Fear Factor'

Donkey Semen Episode

Off the NBC Schedule

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

0126_fearfactor_EX_TMZ_01
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.

Thank you TMZ for exposing this before it aired. This is not "fear", but merely exploitation and humiliation on a whole new level. It's disgusting beyond comprehension.

Too late, the damage is already done.
You'd think with the PR nightmare they caused by shafting Conan, they'd be doing their best not to upset people. But no, they just keep on sliding. NBC should be going cheap soon, I reckon Letterman should buy them out.

Good riddance!    

Ok seriously, enough with this nasty, stomach churning story! Do you fools really think we need a daily update of this? Whoever the idiot is at TMZ that keeps shoving this story in the forefront needs to get a damn clue that this bit of vileness is not welcomed or appreciated.

If anyone was watching the UFC fights Saturday night they would have seen Joe "Rogain" working there so it seems like NBC is not a career for Joe and the writing may be on the wall to cancel this futile, gross show.
