Bounty hunter coming back to the small screen

HONOLULU, Hawaii (AP) -- TV bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman is preparing a return to the airwaves.

Duane "Dog" Chapman's show was pulled off the air in November.

The Chapman family confirmed Thursday that filming is set to resume on the A&E show "Dog the Bounty Hunter."

The show features Chapman and crew in pursuit of bail jumpers in Hawaii and other states.

It was the highest rated show on A&E before the network pulled it off the air in November.

Chapman was heard in a taped phone conversation using a racial slur in reference to his son's black girlfriend.

Chapman has apologized and tried to make amends with the network and the black community.

Network officials say that since the show is about second chances, they decided to accept his apology and resume production. No air date has been announced.

Now i'm curious...will you watch this show now after what Dog had said?

I was just thinking you boycotted that DJ's particular evenings because of similar situation.

Ash, if you want to have an informed discussion about this, then I'd like you to do a little googling and find a transcript of the recording that was made of Dog and see if you think what he said was truly racist. It was offensive to be sure... but go read it.
As for DJ Shawn and his unbelievably offesive anti-semitic "jokes", said face to face, after I asked him to stop and then continued after I told him to shut the fuck up...... that boycott stands.

Hey Jenni,

I thought you'd be intregued to know that I had a blog visitor from the Maldives yesterday. They were looking at this webpage oddly enough.
