Network pulls Ryan Dunn's new show

Following the death of  "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn, G4 has placed his new show on hiatus.  reports the network has placed "Proving Ground" on indefinite hiatus after Dunn was killed in a car crash Monday. The show premiered on June 14 and featured Dunn recreating stunts from films and movies.

According to Deadline, "Proving Ground" premiered to a small audience of 31,000 and there were eight more episodes remaining.

"The show will not be airing for now and discussions are underway re: future plans," a G4 spokeswoman told Deadline.

Dunn, 34, and a passenger were killed when the 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 he was driving was involved in a fiery car crash on a Pennsylvania highway early Monday.

Police are currently investigating the cause of the accident.

    Hiatus? is this a joke? The guy is dead. Seems that goes without saying that the show would be OVER. Like his life is OVER due to his own stupidity.

    It's a shame he and his passanger died. But that's what one bad decision can do. I hope the network looks to replace the host for this show as it looks like it will be fun to watch.

    I certainly hope the person posing as me is enjoying him or her self. I actually think ryan died doing what he loved, which was being extreme. Its a shame he took anothers life though.

    Police are investigating the cause of the crash..the guy was driving drunk in an excess of 167 mph, intentionally endangering the lives of others. Sounds pretty cut and dry to me.

      Give him a break. He may have been driving 162 mph, but he had his arm out signaling.

      You sure sound pretty high and mighty up there on your false pedestal, don't you? Jokes or not, you really need to take your act somewhere else. You aren't winning people to Jesus, you're discouraging people. Keep worshipping your false prophet (your founder)... scammers.

      You're really pathetic, you know that? Your jokes aren't even funny, you're retarded, and need to quit life immediately. We can certainly mock you all we want.

    guess they gotta pull it off air for now. would be a bit eerie watching the show right after the wreck. it feels a little weird to watch pitchmen reruns and billy mays has been dead a few years
