G4 Pats Tribute to Jackass Star Ryan DunnKnown as one of today's greatest entertainers, often at his own expense, Ryan Dunn, was most famous for his prankster role in dare devil meets comedy shows like 'Jackass' while making regular appearances on the G4 network, most recently hosting 'Proving Ground,' another lighthearted reality series. Ryan Dunn was tragically involved in a fatal car accident just a few short weeks ago, but his memory lives on through his fans as G4, part of DISH Network programming, plans a celebratory tribute to honor Dunn's life on an exclusive episode of 'Attack of the Show,' followed by an episode from Dunn's G4 series, 'Providing Ground.' The 'Attack of the Show' tribute at 7pm Tuesday, July 19, will feature a montage of clips from Dunn's 'most memorable moments on G4' in addition to interviews with the friends and colleagues closest to the late TV personality. G4 President, Neal Tiles described Dunn as "an incredible talent who will be missed tremendously by his many fans, including G4 viewers," and how it was "important to all of us at G4 to find a way to celebrate his life and pay tribute to him." With the blessing of Dunn's family, G4 will continue to air the remaining nine episodes of 'Proving Ground,' a show Dunn hosted with 'Attack of the Show's' Jessica Chobot as the two go about "determining if great pop culture moments can be executed in real life through action-oriented trials, stunts and experiments," (Media Market Journal). The premiere episode of 'Proving Ground' aired back in June and will continue to re-air on its original time slot at 8pm, Tuesday nights on G4.
