A&E has decided that eight tumultuous — but not unsuccessful — seasons of its unscripted series Dog the Bounty Hunter were enough; the show has been canceled.
Duane “Dog” Chapman starred on Bounty Hunter, which followed Chapman and his family as they led “fugitive recovery” efforts in Colorado and Hawaii.
Although the series boasted a large and loyal following, the frequent controversy — both on and off the screen — reached even the most ardent non-viewers of Bounty Hunter. Here are our top five:
1. Nov. 2, 2007: The “N-Word”
2. July 13, 2011: The Colorado Bar Brawl
3. April 21, 2009: The Shot That Backfired
4. March 21, 2012: Not All in the Family
5. March 15, 2011: Papa Don’t Preach
