    The home audience is saved, but there's still the thousands of people who were there to see it in person.

    That's not ABC's problem, though.

    True. But I imagine that whoever was responsible for granting the permit would have considered it.

    Probably so, but my understanding is that everyone else involved was OK with a harness-free crossing - only ABC required it.

    Whole craploads of people go see Nascar. Or the circus. Or Cirque du Soleil. Or watch Jersey Shore.

    If you're referring to danger, Cirque du Soleil has used (discreet) safety harnesses for years.

    I've never seen it. I was assuming.

    There's danger in any live performance, really. I knew a kid who almost stabbed himself to death falling on a bottle in one of my college productions.
