I've watched House Hunters International a few times.. Not a bad reality Realty show.

A&E is the big winner here... All the enraged repugs will now be tuning in.

Theriot called it on his FB page when it happened--a complete publicity stunt by A&E

I call that the Chick-Fil-A model. It's a surefire way for christians to express outrage and play the victim card at the same time.

Not only is there freedom of speech in the U.S. of A. There is also freedom to change the channel.

Duck Dynasty Ratings Plummet.

I think the drop in their popularity isn't as much about Phil's comments, but that the attention paid to the show revealed something that their viewers didn't like--namely that they aren't the "simple folk" they portray. Those clean cut photos and stories about their college education destroyed their hillbilly image.

You wish it was a publicity stunt, Fordie. It fits right into your narrative. The biggest publicity stunt is....Anyways, I don't buy it for a moment. Liberals are the new NAZI's and they really thought they could force Duck Dynasty off the air. It blew up in their faces. Too may decent Americans didn't allow a few loud mouth gay people to force them. Thank God another NAZI tactic didn't work.

The logic displayed can't be bought for any amount of money.

Well, add that to a long list of idiotic things written on the internet.

Blah blah blah fordie. Your conspiracy theory to help get glaad off the hook for their HATRED of Phil's opinion and his Christianity fits right in to your anti-Christrian narrative. Too bad you are not honest enough to admit it. liberalism = dishonesty. PERIOD.

There is no prize for writing consecutive idiotic posts, red.

A&E "suspended" Robertson, and then promptly programmed a Duck Dynasty marathon.

Several shows run marathons. Duck Dynasty is not different. There are better uses for tin foil. Please watch your personal attacks. Just because liberals get away with it doesn't mean you should abuse it. Phil Robertson said what he believed in to GQ magazine, glaad made it into a big issue, the management of A&E felt bullied by glaad and suspended Phil knowing he was largely popular. American people rose and A&E relented. Sort of reminds me of the whole Chick-fil-a controversy. I didn't/don't eat there, but I made an exception to show support like millions of others. Screw the big mouth minority (just in case, no racism intended) voices and their nazi intentions. Live and let live.

Yeah, right after they "suspend" one of the main characters.

Sure, red. Those folks in entertainment have no sense of publicity or how to orchestrate it. Those quotes just happened to "leak" out before the magazine came out. Ignore that an A&E rep was present for the entire interview.

Sure red. Three posts in a row.

So the critics of Duck Dynasty have a goal of stuffing folks like Red into ovens?

Wow....just wow!!

How anyone can watch Duck Dynasty is beyond me. I don't understand the allure of watching people pretending to be ignorant rednecks.

I talked to somebody who was sort of a fan about a year ago. She made it sound like the WWE with beards and shotguns. I'm getting curious now.
