FOX has cancelled its planned live Jump of the Century special. The special was supposed to pit daredevil rivals against each other in an attempt to recreate Evel Kneivel's 1974 motorcycle jump across Snake River Canyon in Idaho. It was scheduled to air in the fall.

In a statement, FOX said,“Due to production timelines and budget concerns, we have decided to not move forward with the Jump of the Century."
