TV's Got Male, With More Testosterone Shows To Come

Glenn and Mitchell Guist

When a young programming executive at the History channel first pitched the idea of following a group of Louisiana Cajuns who hunt alligators, "the poor guy got laughed out of the room," says the network's president, Nancy Dubuc. But instead of dropping the idea, he kept bringing it up — and kept getting laughed at.

"But by the fourth meeting, you had to pause," Dubuc says. "If somebody is as passionate as he was about something, what's the harm in letting them run with it?" That germ of an idea turned into Swamp People, an unlikely hit that ...

And, of course, the Devil shows up with a helluva assignment for Sam.

Rowe resolutely keeps his chin up while performing the sometimes unpleasant tasks, whether he's knee-deep in bat guano, crawling through sewer pipes or molding garden pots out of cow manure.
