'Temptation Island' Coming Back
Voyeurs, listen up: "Temptation Island," the controversial hormone-raging Fox reality series, is coming back for a second installment, the network said on Thursday. The announcement came one day after the show's big finale, in which three couples who spent time apart on a tropical island gallivanting around with sexy swinging singles in order to test the strength of their relationships decided to stay together. "'Temptation Island' has proven to be compelling television," Gail Berman, president of entertainment for the Fox Broadcasting Co., said in a statement. "We're pleased it's such a hit with our viewers, and we're scouting locations for the next adventure." While popular with viewers, the show has been derided by critics for its exploitation of sex and infidelity.
But Fox Television Entertainment Group Chairman Sandy Grushow said, in a nutshell, that's par for the course. "I don't consider this to be shockumentary programming," he said. "We work in a very dynamic business. Times change." Translation? Get over it.
