I don't know if this applies to anyone outside the US but has anyone heard about the murder surrounding contestant, Ryan on Vh1's reality show Megan Wants A Millionaire? Apparently because alleged finalist of the show, Ryan decided to murder his wife and then proceed to hang himself, Vh1 has decided to completely pull the plug on the show and all it's remaining episodes. Now I don't know about everyone else but I enjoy my sunday and monday night reality shows and am a little mad the show won't continue airing. Thoughts?

Perhaps, they aren't showing it because it would be in poor taste?! o_O
Personally, I think reality TV is probably the worst genre of television out there. They aren't even that "real" most of the time. They are only on the air becuase they are cheap to make like game shows.
TV was much better when the standards were actually thought provoking like The Twilight Zone. Now half the shows are stupid sitcoms and the other half are shows about blondes sitting on a couch talking to bland, rich guys.
Not my definition of entertainment!

Same here, I rarely watch TV anymore except for movies on TV channels.

I have to agree with Turbo Genesis it could of and would of been in bad taste to air the remaining episodes and it would of also been especially hard for the family members to deal with the matter when they could flip on the television and see him. I personally do not watch reality television as someone previously states they are not as real as they are supposed to be. The networks have admitted this countless times with shows like the real world on mtv. The same people that own MTV own Vh1 also. I just believe reality tv is a waste of space. I have enough going on in my life and I personally do not care to turn on the television and see a bunch of other people act like idiots like Flavor Flave and Ozzy did on there shows. Thats my opinion though on the matter.

The only reality show I actually like is "Cops" because it's actually real. These dating reality TV shows rot your brain.
Please, President Obama give a speech that will inspire the networks to bring back the anthology programs in a similar style like The Twilight Zone and Amazing Stories! I love classic story telling told in a half hour.

I love my Twilight Zone, The Prisoner, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad, but I also love my Paris Hilton's My New BFF and Outback Jack. It's all a matter of balance and the ability to appreciate diverse programming.

Yes, it's a very enthralling show. It explores the practical constraints on the formation of platonic bonds between individuals of vastly different religious and socioeconomic backgrounds, and challenges contemporary Western society's paradigms of such bonds as represented in popular culture via the introduction of individuals with different belief systems, customs, nationalities, genders, sexual orientation, and kin organisation by the agency of a series of pre-planned, values-isolating exercises and hidden cameras.

People have the right to watch these lightweight reality TV shows, but the problem is they don't make any "new" anthology shows anymore for people like me! I want great, one-off, fiction stories that make you think not fake "reality" shows about rich girls or Octomoms. I see very little diversity.
Like everything else, the networks are more about doing it cheap than about doing it right. I guarantee 50 years from now they won't be having marathons of PHMNBFF, but they most likely will stil be re-running The Twilight Zone because quality writing stands the test of time.
