Scare Tactics is returning to the SCI FI Channel with a brand new host. In the first season, Beverly Hills 90120 veteran Shannen Doherty hosted the show. In the second season, reality TV veteran Stephen Baldwin hosted the show. Now, comedian Tracy Morgan of 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live fame is taking over the hosting duties for the show’s third season.
Scare Tactics is a hidden camera reality TV show, where unsuspecting victims are set up by friends and loved ones. The scary pranks usually involved elaborate special effects, makeup, and stunts. VH1 named a segment involving a “mutant rat boy” in one classic episode of Scare Tactics as the greatest prank of all time. The segment involved a lab assistant being terrorized by a genetically altered mutant.
The third season of Scare Tactics will premiere with two back-to-back brand new episodes on Wednesday, July 9, 2008 at 10 PM ET/PT on the SCI FI Channel.
