Steven Seagal Denies That a Puppy Was Killed During Reality Show Raid

Steven SeagalAccording to the Associated Press, actor Steven Seagal and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio have denied accusations by a Phoenix man and his lawyer that a family pet was killed during a raid filmed for Seagal's reality TV show.

TMZ earlier reported that Seagal took part in a March 9 raid on the home of Jesus Llovera for his A&E show, 'Steven Seagal: Lawman.'

Llovera alleges that Seagal arrived at his home with a tank, which he rammed into a gate on his property, and that an 11-month-old puppy was killed during the raid along with 100 roosters.

Seagal said he's outraged by the allegation, and Sheriff Arpaio said it is without merit. "If my deputies, or posse man Seagal for that matter, had done something so awful like shooting a family dog, then where are the photos to prove it?" Arpaio asked.

Steven Seagal and Crew Bust a Crack House on 'Lawman' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Oct 21st 2010 5:15AM
A Drug Bust on 'Steven Seagal: Lawman'On 'Steven Seagal: Lawman' (Wed. 10PM ET on AETV), a crack house is invaded by The Great One, aka Reserve Deputy Chief Seagal. He and the rest of the crew from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office make use of a warrant and charge into a home. One of the residents "just shoved something in his mouth!" says Seagal (wearing an incongruously luxurious scarf with his uniform).

"[We have] information based on you selling crack outta here," one officer tells a man in cuffs. He responds: "You can't most definitely find no drugs or nothing." But the cops know better.

"Drug dealers always hide their stash, but they also need quick access to it," explains Seagal (for viewers who've never seen any crime/cop show ever). How 'bout those oven mitts hanging on the kitchen wall...?

'Lawman': Steven Seagal Aces Target PracticeOn 'Steven Seagal: Lawman' (Wed., 10PM ET on AETV), the crew from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office get a little competitive during target practice.

One colleague successfully shoots the "suspect" in the image, but also gets the woman he's holding hostage -- right in the forehead. "My investigation revealed she was in on it," he joked.

The next guy misses the hostage, but his shots to the suspect's head are still too close (for Steven Seagal's comfort) to the captured woman. So Seagal, aka the Reserve Deputy Chief, shows 'em how it's done.

Fox Books 'Cops' for Season 23

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 20th 2010 10:45AM
Here's what the bad boys, bad boys are gonna do: continue running from the police, as Fox has given the greenlight for a 23rd season of its hit reality drama 'Cops.'

The show, which will air its 800th episode before the end of season 22, has given viewers a look at 2,044 arrests in 140 U.S. cities (plus foreign locales like Russia, London and Hong Kong) since it debuted in 1989. The second longest-running show on Fox (after 'America's Most Wanted'), 'Cops' continues to be a ratings winner in its Saturday-night timeslot, drawing an average of five million viewers each week.

"We're doing gangbusters," series creator John Langley tells the Hollywood Reporter. "It's an existential variety show -- dramatic, life-threatening, philosophical and legal. We're still the only show on television with no script, no actors, no host and no re-enactments."

New TV on DVD for March 30: 'Deadliest Catch,' 'Real Housewives'

by Scott Harris, posted Mar 30th 2010 1:45PM
If there's one thing the American television viewer has learned about the entertainment industry it's that Hollywood's primary goal is to always keep it real. Sure, you could accuse actors of employing some artifice in their line of work, but for the most part, television is in the midst of an unparalleled era of keeping it real as shows like 'The Real World' and 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' continue to prove by having the word real right in the title. And when it comes to TV on DVD, the realest month of all is apparently March.

Of course, the argument could be made that this week's batch of DVD releases is actually somewhat weak due to a lack of high profile scripted shows, but we like to take more of a "glass half real" viewpoint on things. That's why were so so excited to see the latest issue from the most real reality show of all, 'Deadliest Catch,' which lands 'Deadliest Catch: Season Five' just in time to get you ready for the premiere of season six on April 13.

Are your favorite TV police officers not squinting enough? Then tune that TV on over to A&E!

A&E has renewed their popular reality series (there's two phrases I thought I would never use in the same sentence: "A&E" and "popular reality series") 'Steven Seagal: Lawman' for another season.

The network has submitted a 16-episode order for the show's new season, just three more than the first season. The network has also been more than pleased with its 2.1 million average reviewer rating, more than half of which is from the coveted 18 to 34 year old demographic. Just imagine. If the show gets popular enough, it might become an actual movie. Finally! Seagal will have a chance to do some real acting.
