Dog Chapman -- On His Way Back to TV?

12/14/2007 4:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Duane "Dog" Chapman looked relaxed and happy, taking a break from his Tour of Contrition '07 for a little R&R last night -- could it be because his show is on its way back on the air?


Sources tell TMZ that the network is very pleased with the progress Dog has made with African-American leaders, but nothing has been decided yet about the return of "Dog the Bounty Hunter."

Meanwhile, we spotted Dog kicking back -- and throwing some shakas -- at a housewarming party for designer Christian Audigier. Chill, brother!

Why all the complaining about one show? With all the tripe on the air, people are concerned about this show? He said what he said (in a private conversation that was nobody's business, if most conversations people had were recorded we would all be walking around in shame), he apologized to the universe, if people want to remain victimized, so be it. Right or wrong, this word is spoken all over everyday, maybe we should get off our self-righteous, poor little wounded behinds and stand up and move on. And make sure you don't watch too many movies or the comedy channel either, or listen to certain kinds of music, that pathetic word is all over the place in all of them.

Come on people, I know and love a few black freind and beleive me they think this whole thing is nonsence. I love this show and miss it. I am 73 yrs old and have seen this kind of thing go around before. I think Dog and family have sufferred enough for a mistake he made while having a private conversation with his son. I have lost respect for that boy. Come on back Dog, My regards to your family and God Bless you all.

Standards are badly needed.    

So the Dog got caught (or framed) with his foot in his mouth. That was a personal matter. The fact remains that if you actually WATCH his show a few times, you realize how jazz it is. You start to understand the cyle of the system, the people caught in it and it's in and outs; you get into the same adrenalized zone when they're in the hunt, and as reality t.v. goes, it's one of the very best shows out there. This should be strictly a business decision; Kennedy wasn't booted out of office for his questionable personal life, (Marilyn, etc) because he was considered to be a good president. Dog's show is a damn good show, and political correctness should not be a basis for censorship as he didn't break any laws. Now, Pee Wee Herman's show for kids is a different matter, as he got caught in a public theatre...I won't go there, google it....In conclusion, if you watched a few of Dog's shows, you'll already know what well-meaning individuals he and his entire crew are or sincerely try to be. Put the show back on.
Last I looked it was a free country. He has done the contrition tour, and he means it.

Standards are badly needed.    

O.K. then, pull ALL of the shows featuring black people who have been overheard calling whites crackers or honky in private conversations amongst themselves. There'd be no blacks on T.V. Talk about your double standards, and talk about your over reactions. Everyone TRIES to behave better, but most slip up here and there on the way to T.V. perfection. Gag.
