‘Pit Boss’ Returns to Animal Planet This Saturday

Shorty Rossi of Animal Planet's 'Pit Boss'


Whenever I attend cross-company events, like our Upfront, TCA, etc., I’m always amazed (and proud) of the range of talent across our networks. From gold miners to fashion gurus, it’s always great to see worlds colliding; however, I have to admit that one of my favorite talent to see has four legs, a blingy collar and calls Animal Planet his home. I’m of course referring to Hercules, companion to Pit Boss‘ Shorty Rossi.

If you’re a fan of Shorty, Hercules and the Shorty’s Rescue/Shortywood crew, mark your calendar for Saturday, January 5, at 9pm ET/PT for the season premiere of Pit Boss. In the new season, Shorty and Hercules hit the road to educate people across the country about pit bulls, while Ashley continues to look at new opportunities beyond Shortywood.

Catch up by watching the Best of Pit Boss 2012 playlist (below) and don’t miss Saturday’s premiere (with or without a furry companion).

Shorty Rossi & HerculesWe’ve all heard stories (or seen the YouTube videos) of pets fascinated by TV programs. My dog Bea’s new favorite happens to be Animal Planet‘s Pit Boss (as I discovered on Saturday as she recuperated from surgery). If you’re a fan as well, you’ll be happy to know that six new episodes begin on Saturday, January 14 (at 9pm ET/PT).

And, if you haven’t tuned into Pit Boss, I invite you to get to know Shorty Rossi, his pit bulls and the teams with Shorty’s Rescue and Shortywood, Inc., Rossi’s talent management company for little people like him. Check out a clip from Saturday’s premiere below:
