If it was proven that the events of the show led to the passing of the person concerned then it should be cancelled then and there.
However if it was not proven that the events of the show led to the passing of the person then the show should return but with a lot and I mean a lot of changes.
It's a difficult one, but you cannot always predict how people will respond to things, and therefore, nothing can ever be truly watertight.
Take a gameshow, for example. Contestant goes on, he's in a lot of debt and needs to win big. He pushes it and pushes it and ends up losing. He leaves with nothing, having pinned all his hopes on winning big and finally being debt-free.. He's crushed and decides that this was his one big chance and he blew it. He can't see a way out, and takes his own life.
Yes, it's a completely made-up example, but it COULD happen, just as a guest on The Jeremy Kyle Show COULD take their own life, having allegedly been "proven" to be a cheat on television.
Is the gameshow to blame because they shouldn't have dangled the carrot of wealth in front of him, prompting him to play on? Should it be taken off air?
