Trivia

Season 2 premiered on September 28th 2001 and was taken off the schedule after 3 episodes due to the mood of the country post 9-11 and poor ratings. It then returned in June 2002 with the first 4 episodes shown in 2 hour blocks on successive days to get the audience caught up. The reunion show at the end is held a year after the show finished filming. See more »

The most intelligent reality show on TV
20 October 2001 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

The Mole has been the only reality show to engage me in any way, shape or form. Unlike the sheer idiocy of Survivor - "eww, they had to drink *bloo-o-o-od*!" - The Mole actually tries to use both the contestants' and viewers' *brains*. And that, unfortunately, will probably be the show's downfall. The average viewer doesn't want to have their mind working on a Friday night. Case in point: the insane success of such cerebral teasers as 90210 and Melrose. ABC has taken chances on smart shows before. Max Headroom and The Dennis Miller Show enjoyed shortlived runs on the network before being yanked by those who think ratings rule over all else. I'm not surprised to see The Mole II: the Next Betrayal canceled midseason, even though it's easily the most entertaining and intelligent show on ABC's roster. The American people just won't have smarts in their TV, unless it's Frasier taking a twice-per-episode shot at just how inane are the cultured. Great show, and like all things great, it lived all too brief a life.
