For the first time in Dr. Drew history since installing a live studio audience, the show was forced to kick out an audience member for not cooperating and calming down.
“Everbody, I’m going to shut down this TV show and go to a test pattern unless people behave themselves and behave civilly. I’m not kidding,” HLN host Dr. Drew Pinsky threatened. “I’m not kidding. It’s a live television show, and I will go to a test pattern if I have to.”
When the woman wouldn’t quiet down, a security guard escorted her out of the audience.
Pinsky’s entire episode was about CNN’s debate and post-analysis, including a segment on why the network didn’t ask questions about the black lives matter movement.
