There's something addictive about a show where the good guys are almost as pathetic as the bad guys. I don't know if it's the pre-hunt prayer, Beth's absurd fashion choices, or Dog's penchant for lecturing the poor slobs he catches, but we're hooked on "DOG the Bounty Hunter."
I don't think Dog and his crew are "pathetic". I mean, it's not like I'd want them as my neighbors or anything but at least they're out their doing GOOD. I'm not sure "Brutus Beefcake" is a look any person should really be going for, though.

I was thinking "Oh, so THIS is what happened to Twisted Sister" myself.
The show's fun to watch though. The lecture's get a little boring because you know that human nature being what it is, these people will be right back doing what they want as soon as they can, but that doesn't stop the chase from being entertaining.
You're right on almost all accounts. I say almost only because I don't think LAX would get the tentpole help from AI. Even though they're competition (but IIRC NBCUni produces the show), getting an 11 rating is a pretty darn good sampling for House.
