A&E fetches Dog, buries Gotti

A&E has renewed three of its highest-rated reality series, including Dog the Bounty Hunter, but sources said its breakout series, Growing Up Gotti, has been whacked.

It's also the end of the line for Airline, another A&E reality entry. Returning for second seasons are Inked and Criss Angel Mindfreak, the two youngest-skewing series on the network.

The highest-rated series ever on the network in all key demographics, Dog will be back for a third season, which already is in production. The show follows a family of real-life bounty hunters working in Hawaii.

Sources said series star Duane Dog Chapman did not come cheap, re-signing for about $100,000 per episode. A&E declined comment. Not only is Dog A&E's most-watched series, the franchise could be ready for syndication as soon as next year; its closed-ended episodes and action sequences make it more attractive than the average reality series in that market.

Dog will return in February for 26 half-hour episodes, with an option for multiple subsequent seasons. Inked will ...

Blog Spotlight: A&E Intervenes on "Intervention"

Last night, A&E premiered a new episode of Intervention. As usual, it made for an intense Monday night.

Intervention featured a pair of brothers, Sebastian and Marcel, who at the ripe old ages of 21 and 20, are full-on heroin addicts. Both still live at home with mom and dad—selling drugs, sleeping and staying so messed up they can barely speak. While many subjects of this show turn to drugs after some horrific event in their past, these two were essentially spoiled into drugs, with an overindulgent father trying to make up for his own strict upbringing by letting his boys do whatever they please.

Blog Spotlight: Appealing TV: Obsessed With Intervention

If I said I was addicted to the A&E reality show "Intervention," that would just be a cheap play on words. But so what. It's true!

For those who have not heard of the show, it is a "docuseries" about people with addictions. The premise is the addicts "agree to be in a show about addiction," but do not know that they will soon face an intervention from their friends and family. The cameras follow them around, interview them and their families, and often uncover, in the process, the root cause of their addictions. In the end, the addict either agrees to go to rehab or...doesn't. (At this point, after many years on the air, it is a little hard to believe that none of the addicts who agree to be on the show have not at least HEARD of a TV show that follows addicts ...

INTERVENTION profiles people who are losing their battle with their addictions, and whose friends and families feel the only remaining option is to hold an intervention. Each documentary follows the lives of these addicts, taking an unflinching look at the impact of their addictions on their everyday lives, all the while the addicts are unaware that an intervention is being planned. Each airing ends with the friends, family and a professional interventionist urging the addict to get treatment. If the individual should choose treatment, the addict immediately enters a widely respected treatment facility.
