Paradise Hotel will end premiere week, as will new Temptation Island 3.
FOX will debut Temptation Island 3 on Aug. 28, but it will conclude less than a month later, on Sept. 25–the same week that Paradise Hotel will end its summer run. That’s also premiere week, when every other network will be debuting new shows. Television Week also reports that Paradise Hotel “is slated to crown a winner” during its finale, suggesting some sort of twist in the show to make it, well, more than just “Drunk Asshole Hotel.”
