A “mature audience version” of Paradise Hotel will air late nights on Fox Reality

MyNetworkTV and the Fox Reality Channel will each air their own versions of the same Paradise Hotel 2 episodes when the show debuts on Feb. 4. (That’s about a month later than its tentative debut date.)

The show will air at 9 p.m. ET on MyNetworkTV, a broadcast network, and then “a late-night TV-MA version” will air at 1 a.m. ET/10 p.m. PT on Fox Reality, a cable network. The two episodes will apparently just be versions of each other, as a press release says the “late-night, mature audience version exposes even more steamy exclusive footage.”

The competition retains its structure from the first season, according to the press release: “eleven sexy singles … check-in to a secluded resort [… and] must find a roommate of the opposite sex and the individual left without a roommate will have to leave the hotel. Things take a dramatic turn when new guests check-in and have to quickly make and break alliances to stay in the competition. There are no rules in this game of strategy and manipulation where sex and seduction are among the tools players use in their battle to avoid eviction.”

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.
