Ryan Dunn's "Proving Ground" is back on G4's line-up. After pulling off the show from the schedule following the actor's sudden passing, the network has decided to air the remaining eight episodes of the series co-hosted by the daredevil starting on Tuesday, July 19 at 8 P.M.

"Ryan was an incredible talent who will be missed tremendously by his fans, including G4 viewers," the network's president Neal Tiles stated on Monday, June 27. "With the support of Ryan's family, we've decided to air the remaining episodes of G4's 'Proving Ground' to give his fans the opportunity to continue watching this series he was so passionate about."

On the same day "Proving Ground" returns, the cable channel will also "celebrate the life and career" of Dunn in one-hour special "Attack of the Show" which is going to air at 7 P.M. It will feature the late "Jackass" star's most memorable moments on G4, as well as interviews with some of his closest friends and colleagues.

"Proving Ground" sees Dunn and co-host Jessica Chobot working with experts, specialists and prop masters to re-create stunts seen in films, TV shows and video games. Only one episode of the show had been aired before the actor died in a car accident on June 20.
