3. If there's any consolation for all of this, these idiots (the Duck nuts) have been exposed....

...and hopefully millions of potential viewers will run from the stupid show.

Yeah right....like you and the rest of your MSNBC crowd have ever watched them to begin with....

15. no, I'd never heard of him either

and what is a duck dynasty? Were they the ducks from the Hotel Peabody in Memphis?

I never watched the show and couldn't name who each of the family members are, BUT every other kid who came to my door at Halloween was dressed as a member of duck dynasty.  Some entire families had the costumes on.  

So   to this post.

17. Well they certainly got Huge Publicity here on DU..We Were Gamed?

or not? It went on for over a week...

Were we gamed or not...if A&E is going to continue the show with all the cast.

Did we think we could do what we did with Don Imus and others? We must no longer have that power....or do we? Did the MSM get wise as to how to play us Liberals as toys or not?

I have heard of the show, but never watched it except for a minute or two at the end of it. It's on before some show we watch on A&E.  I did see that Walmart still had some Duck Dynasty or Duck commander stuff yesterday. I didn't look to see which it was.

There are times when they go off script and be themselves. That's when it's fun.
Phil and Uncle Si, tend to do that.

Stupid fools.

I think A&E's original intent was to produce a show where viewers could point and laugh at the silly rednecks, much the same way people pointed and laughed at people on Jersey Shore.

However, it seems they created a ratings juggernaut that they cannot contain. -Now they need to take a back seat and let the show live or die on its own merits.

Duck Dynasty: The Show That Got Away

by Pat Archbold  Thursday, December 19, 2013 11:58 AM

After A&E fired Phil Robertson for saying what every good Christian should believe, social media has been abuzz.  One of the recurring themes has been puzzlement about why A&E would cut off its nose to spite its face.  Duck Dynasty is the franchise right now. Why would they risk destroying their own cash cow?

To understand the why, we have to go back to the beginning.  Duck Dynasty is not the show that they wanted, it is the show that got away from them.

It seems what the producers intended and what A&E envisioned with the show is much different than the show that they ended up with, but they didn't do anything about it because it was so wildly popular and so wildly profitable.  But even with all the money, they have never really been comfortable with what happened.

This is what happened.  The whole idea of the show was to parade these nouveau riche Christian hillbillies around so that we could laugh at them. "Look at them," we were supposed to say.  "Look how backward they are!  Look what they believe!  Can you believe they really live this way and believe this stuff?  See how they don't fit in? HAHAHA"

http://www.ncregister.com...w-that-got-away-from-them


It is an interesting read.

Yep Skul. Got into an argument a year or two ago with someone on this site, can't remember who now, about the BuckWild show being scripted. He or she said it wasn't, I said it was. It was filmed around these parts and it hit the local paper when they went to a local bar and started fighting. Well the owner threw them all out. The filming crew told him there was no fight, it was part of the script. The owner said he didn't give a damn, nobody was gonna act like that in his place and then threw the film crew out. The film crew took exception to it, started waving the contract in his face so he called the cops and had them arrested for trespassing.

All reality shows are scripted except for maybe Beyond Scared Straight, Jail, Lockup and Cops... and I ain't too sure about Cops anymore. 

Some of them are pretty fun to watch though.  Beats watching what passes for entertainment on the alphabet channels most times.

When DUmmies say these things it tells me exactly what they would do. Like opening a window into their brain!

"Liberalism is an essentially feminine, submissive world view. Perhaps a better adjective than feminine is infantile. It is the world view of men who do not have the moral toughness, the spiritual strength to stand up and do single combat with life, who cannot adjust to the reality that the world is not a huge, pink-and-blue, padded nursery in which the lions lie down with the lambs and everyone lives happily ever after."
