    Why is it being taken off the air is it because of low ratings? Or is because they're running out of stunts to do?

    Definitely Low Ratings, NBC has been struggling with a lot of  low rated shows this year like Joey, Surface, Fear Factor and for this show NBC thinks that it is best just end the show and air the final episodes in the summer.

    I don't think they would run out of stunts to do.

    The fact that it came back midseason and aired at the same as American Idol probably killed the ratings.

    Fear Factor was on hiatus for part of last TV Season, didn't help the show contributing to lower ratings . Just like what ABC did with Commander in Chief.  Oh well, Fear Factor had a 5 year run, which is fairly good as lot of shows can cancelled sooner.

    UPDATE:

    Actually I think the final episode will be September 19, because there are six episodes that haven't aired yet (603, 610, 611, 613, 619, 620).  So unless they air multiple episodes in one night, that would be...

    1. August 8

    *Miss Teen USA  pageant is on August 15, no Fear Factor this week

    2. August 22

    3. August 29

    4. September 5

    5. September 12

    6. September 19

    Back in October when they first announced that Fear Factor was returning in December, the moderator of the Fear Factor site said there were going to be 22 episodes (and we know that there are at least that many since an episode with the production number 622 has aired).  The projection for September 5th was probably made before Reality Stars got pushed back a week, there was no Fear Factor the week after Reality Stars Part 3, and the Miss Teen USA pageant postponed the August 15 episode.

    Series finale. That sucks. It still has a few episodes left. I keep watching. And I never got the Capital One Fear Factor... They were about 50 miles away a few weeks ago when they were in West Virigina. I was in Elkview, but they were somewhere else.

    They're showing an two episodes next week (one on Tuesday and one on Wednesday), which means the final episode will be on September 12 if they stick to the schedule.

    Hey

    It is true. Ep "603" will air on Tuesday night this week and Ep "613" will air on Wednesday. They are both on the NBC site as airing.

    All that leaves is episode "619" which is a Celebrity Fear Factor and that is scheduled for September 12th.

    So unless there is any last minute changes. Every episodes of Fear Factor would have gone to air and the last new episode to be seen ever will be September 12th.
