Well I've never seen a serious injury and I don't think they would air it if someone died. The worst thing I saw was someone that had to be rushed to the hospital because they had an allergic reaction.
It's TV, it is entertainment. Do you honestly think that anyone with an IQ over 55 would put people in real danger. You can get 200 Gs for hot coffee, what would the studio, producers, directors have to pay out for a serious injury or death. I've heard, well they signed a contract relieving the previously mentioned from any law suits---------wrong! Every good attorney can find loop holes in loop holes. What was the $ settlement when Brandon Lee was shot. Watch all of those shows, the finale is shot prior to anything else. All of the voting people off of shows is in the can before anything really happens
