IT'S NOT OVER UNTIL THE FAT MAN SINGS (In His Underwear)

"MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCÉ" ENCORES THURSDAY NIGHTS ON FOX

Following its successful series premiere Monday night, encore episodes of the new hit series MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCÉ will air Thursdays (9:00PM-10:00PM ET/PT), beginning this Thursday, Jan. 22, on FOX.

Premiering last night, Jan. 19, MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCÉ won both of its half-hours among Adults 18-49, Total Viewers, Adults 18-34, Teens, Adults 25-54, and all key male and female demos, helping FOX to a nightly win in these measures. The series outperformed the premiere of NBC's "The Apprentice" by +9% in A18-49 and +16% in Total Viewers. Even more impressively, MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCÉ beat the premiere of the original "Joe Millionaire" by +15% in Total Viewers and was neck and neck with the "Joe Millionaire" premiere in A18-49 (9.9/22 versus 10.1/22).

In MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCÉ, Randi Coy attempts to pull off television's largest con on her unsuspecting family, by introducing them to her unknown "fiancé" in the hope of making it through an outlandish wedding ceremony to win a million-dollar prize. Unbeknownst to Randi is that her bumbling "fiancé" is not another reality contestant like herself, but is actually actor Steven Bailey, whose job is to cause as much mischief as possible for the Coy family.

MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCÉ is produced by Rocket Science Laboratories. Chris Cowan and Jean-Michel Michenaud are executive producers. Ray Giuliani is co-executive producer. Claudia DiFalco serves as the host.
