ABC has pulled the plug on "The Runner," an eagerly anticipated reality TV show that was being produced by actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. The network said it was worried about how a series in
which people try to hunt down a citizen, the runner, as he travels across the country would be received after the terrorist attacks. ABC reportedly had concerns that increased airport security could
slow the chase. The network is also likely responding to the public's relative lack of interest in the reality genre since the Sept. 11 attacks.
