The British TV channel Sky One has yanked a reality dating show--with the twist that men were competing for the affections of a pre-operative transsexual woman--after the men threatened legal action, according to BBC News. The channel announced Friday that the program, There's Something About Miriam, would not be added to the current schedule. Rod Christie-Miller, a lawyer representing six of the show's male contestants, said his clients were "traumatized" over being tricked into cuddling and kissing Miriam, whom they thought was a biological woman. The network has denied violating its contracts with the participants and says it is continuing to examine the legal complaint.
