The upcoming Chinese New Year marks the beginning of the year of the dragon, but on A&E, it may be the year of Dog.
Dog The Bounty Hunter premiered for it's 8th season with 2.9 million total viewers, which is it's best premiere since the 3rd season and a 70% increase in average viewership in adults 25-54 compared to the show's 7th season.
The reality show was also the most watched entertainment show on cable in 10pm time slot. The stellar ratings helped A&E become the number one entertainment cable network in primetime amongst adults 25-54 and 18-49 for the night.
Guess the old saying is true — every dog has its day!
