The Mole will be rebroadcast on Fox Reality in July

One of the earliest and best competition-based reality series will be rebroadcast on cable next month. The Fox Reality Channel will air the first season of The Mole starting Monday, July 2, a network spokesperson told reality blurred.

The whole season will air in one week, with two episodes airing every night starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 PT. The remaining seasons–The Mole 2 and the celebrity seasons–have been acquired by the network, the spokesperson said, but no broadcast date has been set for those yet.

The show first debuted more than six years ago, in January of 2001. It was hosted by Anderson Cooper, who is now a CNN anchor and reporter; since taking that job, he said he was “happy to have been involved with” the ABC reality show.

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.
