Paradise Hotel will return next year on Fox Reality and MyNetworkTV

Four years after it originally aired, Fox’s spectacularly trashy and fun summer reality series Paradise Hotel is being ressurected by the Fox Reality Channel, Broadcasting & Cable reports.

The new show will air on both the Fox Reality Channel and MyNetworkTV, which recently announced that it will air only reality shows, and is tentatively scheduled to debut the week of Jan. 13, 2008, a Fox Reality spokesperson told reality blurred.

The show will be produced by its original producers, Mentorn USA, and “will shoot in an undisclosed tropical location,” according to Broadcasting & Cable. The “co-production for Fox Reality will allow for cost and window sharing between the cable/satellite channel and Fox sibling MNT.”

The show has been reairing on Fox Reality, and was rumored to return as recently two years ago. Fox aired a similar series, Forever Eden, but it was cancelled less than two months after it debuted.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
