A&E Cancels Dog: The Bounty Hunter

Dog: The Bounty Hunter

Today in "that show was still on?" news, A&E has canceled Duane "Dog" Chapman's reality series Dog: The Bounty Hunter. The show ran for eight seasons, beginning in 2004.

This announcement really can't come as a surprise. Dog had his time in the reality spotlight, and his 15 minutes seems to be about up. Whether you liked the show or not, it did run for eight whole years, putting it in pretty elite company.

You may recall that Dog suffered some controversy a few years back when a tape was released that featured him repeatedly using the "n-word". Chapman apologized on Larry King Live, and the show resumed production the following year. 2012 aready hadn't been super for Dog, as he and his family have received a series of death threats.

Life will surely go on for Chapman and co., as the end of his show in no way ends his bounty hunting career. He'll just have to learn to adjust to not having cameras around all the time anymore. Hopefully he goes away gracefully, and doesn't become one of these people who are so desperate to be on TV that they'll appear in any crappy celebrity reality show they can. The man had a pretty successful career before A&E came calling, there's no reason he can't return to it.

Did you watch Dog: The Bounty Hunter? Will you miss it?

I love and very much so enjoyed watching dog for several years it made me see the good in people and the mercy he would show to the people who society otherwise would just write them off. Comming from a mother who has for over half my life been in and out of prison I would pray for someone like dog or Beth to come into her life and try and change her for the good. Not to mention lealand is very very easy on the eyes Prayers for Beth and dog and the whole family.

this is the Only reality show that I will watch. Who cares about famous people and their home lives and storage wars etc. Whats that all about and who cares. They tried to help people. There are a lot of self centered people out there and Michael Stevenson is one of them. Does family mean anything to you people? I think not. Education means very little to the public anymore and to ankjevik,foo and tvaholic. There are worlds out side your own. That means you as well at A&E tv. There are a lot people who watched the Dog and family on A&E and nothing else . Now I guess we wont watch it at all.BYE
