Is Special Forces: World's Toughest Test on tonight? This is a good question to ask, as Game 7 of the ALCS is set to air on Monday, October 23, at 8:03 pm ET/5:03 pm PT on FOX. A must-watch event for many MLB fans.

The short answer is Kitchen Nightmares season 8 and Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test season 2, which have been fronting Fox’s fall 2023 TV schedule won’t be airing new episodes in lieu of the baseball game. While the game could perhaps end prior to primetime hours on the West Coast, Fox is understandably going to wait to air new episodes of both shows.

This of course means that Special Forces fans will have to patiently wait to see if Tom Sandoval’s road of redemption continues in the right direction and he toughs it out in the grueling conditions, or if the Vanderpump Rules star will throw in the towel to return to sunny Los Angeles. It also means that viewers have more time to contemplate about Jack Osbourne. Ozzy Osbourne's son hasn't exactly been impressing many of the Special Forces viewers due to his perceived arrogance.

As a heads up, Special Forces is expected to skip next week, October 30, as well, as game 3 of the World Series is scheduled to air on Fox that night. When Special Forces does return with new episodes, it will do so with the episode titled "Pressure." Here is a synopsis:

"The remaining recruits are taken to the top of a mountain range to face the most demanding exercise of selection so far -- using a single rope to crawl across a deadly ravine."

Based on the description of the next show challenge, we may see a number of the remaining celebs in the competition call it quits.

Now if you’ve missed any episodes of Special Forces season 2, tonight may be a great opportunity to play catch-up with the episodes. Without providing too much of a spoiler for those who are behind in the season, you’ll want to make sure you’ve watched all the season 2 episodes. We’re still shocked by a certain recruit’s abrupt departure and grossed out by one scene in particular.

Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test season 2 airs new episodes on Mondays on Fox. Episodes become available to stream the next day on Hulu.
