"Fear Factor" (5 years)
"Fear Factor": Desperate times call for desperate measures, and with NBC floundering badly in recent years, the network decided earlier this season to revive "Fear Factor," the gross-out reality show that had been a success in the early '00s but had been off the air since 2006. As with "Family Guy," cable reruns played a role, as the series had been doing very well on the NBC-owned Chiller channel before Joe Rogan was dusted off to make new episodes for the broadcast network.
