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 ...

Dog the Bounty Hunter courtesy A&E
Duane "Dog" Chapman the most famous bounty hunter we know will be back this summer on A&E with fresh episodes, says the AP. As you may recall, Chapman's show, Dog the Bounty Hunter, was abruptly pulled from the 'net last fall following the leak of a taped phone conversation in which Chapman referred to his son's girlfriend, who is African-American, with a racial epithet. An A&E spokesman said the network felt Dog deserved a second chance, and had done work to redeem himself since the incident. Reruns of the series will kick off June 25, and new episodes will begin airing soon after. Bail-jumpers across Hawaii might be quaking in their law-evading flip-flops, but what about you?

Continuing to apologize for his use of the N-word to refer to his son's girlfriend, A&E bounty hunter Dog Chapman appeared on Fox News Channel's Hannity & Colmes Tuesday night. "I have used the word for a long time not to mean what it does to a lot of black people that are offended," he said. "I will try never, ever, ever to use that word again. I did not ever want to be in the hot seat as I am right now." Wait, that's an apology? — Ben Katner
