TV show description:
On this reality competition series, dogs and their owners vie for the grand prize of $250,000 and title of “top dog.” The series is hosted by zoologist Jarod Miller.

After a nationwide search, 12 competitors and their dogs travel from all over the United States. The canines’ training range from very skilled to merely house-trained. The group live in “Canine Academy” together while competing in challenges that test the owners’ abilities to handle their pets.

The first challenge of each episode — the “Dog Bone Challenge” — pits puppy owners against one another to win a night in the luxury suite. The winner also gets to decide which team’s (literally) in the doghouse and is banished outside.

In the second challenge — the elimination challenge — pets and their owners must perform in front of three judges; Wendy Diamond, founder and editor of Animal Fair magazine, Allan Reznik, Editor-at-large of Dog Fancy and Dog World, and Victoria Stilwell, dog trainer and host of television series It’s Me or the Dog.

Each week, one owner and pooch is sent packing until only one is left standing — on all fours. Read more…

Where Are They Now? Some Greenroom Chatter for December 26, 2008

December 26, 2008
While you're out shopping in stores today, you could see some of the talent from cancelled TV shows. Others may be hard at work on shows like 90210, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Samantha Who?, and Damages. Those keeping busy include William H. Macy (Sports Night), Rob Thomas, Ken Marino and Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks), Adam Scott (Tell Me You Love Me), Jane Lynch (Help Me Help You), Lizzy Caplan (The Class), Kristin Chenoweth (Pushing Daisies), David E. Kelley (Boston Legal), Matt Lanter (Commander in Chief), Tracy Pollan (Family Ties), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Stacked), Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeannie), Dean McDermott (Tori & Dean: Inn Love), Rena Sofer (Just Shoot Me!), Connor Trinneer (Star Trek: Enterprise), Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood), Billy Zane (Twin Peaks), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), and Wendy Diamond (Greatest American Dog). Remember on Bewitched when Dick York was replaced by Dick Sargent? Well, the same thing's about to happen to another Sam, this time on ABC's Samantha Who? sitcom. Apparently Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) is so busy working on FX's Damages that he's not available to reprise his role as Christina Applegate's ex-boyfriend, Funk. As a result, they're recasting the role with Billy Zane (Twin Peaks). Geez, don't you think this is messing with poor Samantha's noggin a bit much?
