We’ve known for months now that NBC’s former hit reality show Fear Factor would no-longer be former. And we also knew that comedian Joe Rogan would return as host. But today, NBC finally announced when the show would return. It all goes down Dec. 12 and will fall somewhere in the 8-10 pm time slot on Mondays. “We have taken the groundbreaking Fear Factor franchise that many fans remember fondly and have ramped it up to make it even more challenging and competitive than ever before,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and late night. “Once again, the contestants will have to face their ultimate fears to prevail — and the tension and drama of that process will make for some riveting television.”

During the question-and-answer segment on his 2007 live album Shiny Happy Jihad, comedian Joe Rogan tells the audience that his time hosting the reality show Fear Factor is done. “I just want to do comedy,” he says. “But I’m a whore. If they offer me more money, I’ll come back.”
