"Dog" Breaks Ratings Record for A&E

9/21/2006 4:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Duane "Dog: The Family Speaks," an A&E special about the recent arrest and possible extradition of Duane Dog Chapman, was seen by 4.5 million viewers Tuesday night. The show tied the network's previously most-seen program -- a "Dog the Bounty Hunter" special about Chapman's wedding.

The broadcast set the record among viewers 18-49 for the network.

Chapman was arrested last week by U.S. marshals and released on bail. He faces possible extradition stemming from a 2003 case in which Chapman captured fugitive Andrew Luster, who was wanted on rape charges at the time, in Mexico -- where bounty hunting is illegal.

The A&E special included exclusive interview footage of Dog and his wife Beth that was shot just after his release.

First off how is the world could we as Americans send in our US government to pick these men up for those bastards in Mexico. They say that Bounty Hunting is illegal in Mexico well what about them illegally jumping the borders into our country and then using our government for there medical insurance and so on. I am truly upset that America would allow this. I do not think that Andrew Luster paid the officials in Mexico, the Mexican government knew what in the heck they were doing when they picked dog up. I mean they are the ones who run the most drugs in there own country to get money. You would think that the government would be proud and stand behind this family. Our government seriously disappointed me when I heard this. Lets do what we can to get him freed.

God bless to the Chapman family at least you have the balls to do what is right. Lots of love for protecting my two children in the long run.

You might want to consult a shrink while your at it lol. you are talking to yourself alot.. Stop disecting the posters, oh and dont forget to thank the board for paying their taxes so you dont live on the streets.

The US Government should be ashamed to even think about giving up Dog to the Mexicans! Dog and crew do a lot of good, and they did what they had to do to get Luster off the streets-obviously the Mexican goverment didn't care about that part.

Rumor has it they traded Dog for a Mexican drug lord...
