Once again, it is time for the What Would You Do? TV show. John Quiñones mans the hidden-camera investigative series, which got its start as an ABC Primetime segment.

Will What Would You Do? be cancelled or renewed for another season? Stay tuned. Status Update Below.
Hosted by Quiñones, What Would You Do? explores how people react to strangers in uncomfortable circumstances. The series features actors playing out various scenarios, in front of unwitting bystanders. The ABC TV series delves into how and when people feel they must intervene and when and why they choose to mind their own business. Quiñones then reports about how they made their decisions.
