Dunn had already shot 8 episodes as the star of the show -- which featured the former "Jackass" star recreating famous stunts from TV shows, movies and video games.

According to Deadline.com, the show got off to a slow start ... with only 31,000 viewers tuning in to the Tuesday premiere.

A rep for G4 explained, "The show will not be airing for now and discussions are underway re future plans."

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. Ryan’s comedic wit and signature no-holds-barred approach made him an incredible talent and his work on G4’s 'Proving Ground' was flawless."

Why isn't anyone thinking about the person that he killed instead of being upset that he's gone. Don't forget he KILLED someone. He chose to drink and drive and he should most certainly not be resting in peace. he should be burning in hell.

That's really nice of the station to pull the shows so everyone forgets about him. They are marketing geniuses. Nobody watches G4 that's why ratings were so bad.
