Jackass star, Ryan Dunn, who tragically died in a car crash in Philadephia yesterday, recreated famous stunts from TV shows, movies and videos for a show called â€œProving Groundâ€ on G4 Network. For now, G4 released a statement on the death of their star and announced they decided to stop airing the show.
G4 released a statement saying, “All of us at G4 are shocked and deeply saddened by the tragic news that Ryan Dunn has passed away. Ryanâ€™s comedic wit and signature no-holds-barred approach made him an incredible talent and his work on G4â€™s ‘Proving Ground’ was flawless.”
“The show will not be airing for now and discussions are underway re future plans.”
Ironically, â€œProving Groundâ€ had just premiered with an unsatisfying number of viewers (31,000) on Tuesday (June 14). The 34 year-old Jackass had already shot about eight episodes of the show, but it will most probably be canceled for good after his unexpected death.
In Ryanâ€™s honor, I say the show must go on! R.I.P. Ryan Dunn.
