I read an example in "Merriam Webster dictionaries" which was:

Movie audiences have effectively nixed the idea of the reviving the old-fashioned western by emphatically ignoring this latest effort.

Is the article "the" that precede "reviving" redundant here?

    Yes, it should not be there and may be an error on the webpage. There are other ways to fix the sentence too, such as saying "the reviving of the old-fashioned western...".
