    Fox Reality Channel to Cease Operations
    News Corp.-owned network to make way for new venture

    By Melissa Grego -- Broadcasting & Cable, 10/14/2009 8:00:32 PM

    News Corp.'s Fox Reality Channel will cease operations on March 31, 2010 and be replaced by a new venture from the Fox Cable Networks group, a company spokesman confirmed.

    "With the changing cable landscape we've made a strategic decision to shift some resources and refocus on emerging channels. However, Fox Reality Channel will remain on our lineup for at least the next several months," the spokesman said in a statement.

    A party outside of the Fox Cable Networks group is in advanced conversations to participate in the new venture, which will involve a complete rebranding of the network, according to TheWrap.com, which first reported the news.

    Fox Cable Networks comprises more than 30 networks, including FX and 16 owned-and-operated regional sports networks. It collaborates with partners on a number of its channels. The company has partners in National Geographic Channel and Fox Sports En Espanol services and Big Ten Network is a co-venture with the Big Ten Conference. Fox Cable Networks also is reportedly a bidder for Cox’s Travel Channel.

    Fox Reality Channel President David Lyle told his staff on Oct. 14 that the network would be shuttering. The network’s senior VP of programming Bob Boden left the company earlier this fall, taking a position with Hasbro Studios.

    Fox Reality Channel debuted in May 2005.
I've watched this channel, like, twice - both times when I was subjected to "American Idol Extra" - so I'm sure not gonna miss it. I'm a LITTLE curious about what might take its place.

Speaking of Boot Camp, I knew the guy who came in 2nd, Private Wolf (who got screwed). He's the brother of 1 of my good friends.

I'm really going to miss Solitary. It was fun to laugh at the contestants for putting themselves in their predicaments/torture.

And thus, reality TV in general inches closer to a much-deserved death. *breaks out the celebratory Dos Equis*

I probably watched Solitary 3.0 more often than I'd like to admit. Other than that, oh well.

I am equally saddened and relieved that I did not know this channel existed.

THIS WEEK IN TV We're making our slog to the end of the major television season. Come June 1st, we'll have two weeks of Glee left and all the summer shows (though I will admit that it seems like more shows than they had in previous years).
