The Ducks are A&E's biggest show

The Robertsons are at it again. Last night’s one-hour Season Four premiere of A&E‘s mega hit Duck Dynasty drew a staggering 11.8 million viewers to rank as the number one nonfiction series telecast in cable history.

The episode also set a cable record for a reality series telecast among adults 25-54 with 6.3 million viewers in the demo and became the No.1 series telecast in A&E history among adults 18-49 and 18-34 with 6.3 million and 3.0 million viewers, respectively. The previous A&E records in total viewers and all key demos were held by Duck Dynasty‘s third season finale, which averaged 9.6 million total viewers, 5.6 million adults 25-54, 5.5 million adults 18-49 and 2.6 million adults 18-34. Duck Dynasty also is poised to be the No.1 show on all of television, broadcast or cable, last night.

Someone was threatening Under Armor earlier-they stated this afternoon that they do not share Phil's views but will continue to sponsor the show.

Let us take a look. nobama's porkulus program was designed to lower the unemployment rate. It failed, the unemployment rate is up. Fewer American's employed, fewer American's required to pay Federal Income tax. A bad thing, not in nobama's mind and the minds of his looney left wing supporters, the more on food stamps, the more loyal democrat voters. Utopia for you.

conservative hypocrisy. that there is no reasonable reply for. you guys can go on all day about how unfair it is that you're not being held to a lower standard, but very few other than your own are buying it. you attack people all day long with totally unprovable BS, but when one of your ilk exposes your hypocrisy by going off in a national publication and you all try to defend him against exactly what you do to others day in and day out, it is astounding to see that you think you have a leg to stand on.
Everyday you are a non-stop whine about FNS-but object to someone commenting on Raw Story. That is hypocrisy.

What is ironic and disgusting is that poor white trash redneck ignorance is becoming something that is attractive somehow; it's not only Southerners as was thought before. It seems to be everywhere; even people in Massachusetts of all places, are laughingly calling themselves rednecks! One would think that being called white trash redneck hillbillies would be something anyone would want to distance oneself from.

It's sick. Read this from that idiot:

The 67-year-old journeyed from substance abuse to devotion to God to small-screen celebrity, all in the backwoods of Louisiana. According to Robertson, growing up in those Louisiana backwoods in the pre-civil rights era was not bad for black people.

“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson is quoted in GQ. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say,‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”
