    A&E will retain the rights to the show and continue to profit from it for many years to come.
    IMHO the show has run it's course anyway and a new "lets laugh at the stupid hillbillys" show will easily replace it.
    A&E executives know this all too well.

    That's a definite possibility. The other is that this whole thing was staged as a publicity stunt and both A&E and the Duck Dynasty crew were in on it.

    No matter what though, I agree, it is due to the almighty dollar no matter what possibility is correct.

    Sorry to inform you, but these show contracts are from season to season. Anything more would be major stupidity on the network's part.

    I understand that fully well.
    The Robertsons will not throw away millions. They may be rich but they are not stupid.

    A&E had to know about the GQ interview and most likely was the first to get a transcript.

    Season to season at least one season in advance.

    What is not allowed is discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation. If you can't comply with the demands of the Constitution and anti-discrimination laws, then don't open a business. Its as simple as that.
    No it isn't that SIMPLE. When you have discrimination laws that violate another's First Amendment rights you have bad law. When you have discrimination being redefined to include "hurt feelings" you have bad law. When you have groups like GLAAD trying to use a person's personal religious beliefs as a case for defamation by shopping for politically appointed judges who rule in their favor resulting in silencing another, you have a constitutional crisis.

    Well like I said, it falls well within the possibility that both sides were in on it as a publicity stunt to increase viewing.
