    Joe Rogan to host "Fear Factor" relaunch on NBC

    Joe Rogan is returning to the "Fear Factor" set.

    The UFC color commentator, who hosted "Fear Factor" from 2001 to 2006, has signed on for a relaunch of the show, network executives recently announced.

    Eight new episodes of the show will be produced beginning next month and are expected to debut on NBC in September.

    Additional episodes could be ordered depending on the ratings. NBC decided to do the relaunch after reruns scored surprisingly strong ratings on NBCUniversal's Chiller cable station.

    "Fear Factor" is a stunt/dare reality game show that usually featured six to eight contestants on each show. The show initially ran from 2001 to 2006.

    A total of 142 episodes were produced during that first run, which was known for mental and physical challenges. But it became most popular (and a bit controversial) for things such as having cast members eat insects and other unsavory fare, as well as sometimes-dangerous, nerve-wracking and stomach-churning stunts.

    The format is expected to remain largely the same with the relaunch, but the stunts are expected to be amped up. Additionally, unlike early seasons of the show, contestants will compete in pairs rather than as individuals.

    Rogan, 43, also is an actor and standup comedian who first joined the UFC's broadcasting team in 1997 at UFC 12. He's since become one of MMA's most recognizable personalities.

    I like that show. Nothing like watching someone stomach some gross bugs.

    It should be interesting to see if NBC can tweak it enough to get ratings again.
