'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.

As reported by TMZ, TMZ made the hype to get this cancelled, if TMZ is 100% true, good job boys... wtf, its recorded, this type of behavior can't be ignored, just voice it after the show is aired, or maybe during commercials :P

What kind of idiots would drink that mess? I mean, would you really want to be nationally recognized nationwide as the man/woman that drank donkey semen? Imagine trying to find a date after that. Of all of the cancelled shows NBC could have brought back, I still can't believe why they chose this crap.

What is the big deal? Past episodes of Fear Factor had contestants eat an elk penis and a bull scrotum. NBC aired those episodes, why pull the plug on an episode with donkey semen?

I'm glad they are taking it off the schedule but, I am done with that show anyway. I agree with the person that said the middle "stunt" isn't about conquering fear but it is to bellittle the contestants and appeal to those who get off on gross. I used to watch it for the "real stunts (1 & 3) but no more...
