But none has had as much bite as Pit Boss, Animal Planet's edgy, yet endearing, hit about a street-smart ex-con who runs both a Los Angeles pit-bull rescue operation and a little-person entertainment agency (airing Saturday at 10/9c).
"Little people are misunderstood just like pit bulls are," says straight-talking star Shorty Rossi, who believes the glut of LP series helps dispel stereotypes...
