    No plans for shooting any new content with the asshole Phil Robertson have been scripted and he remains on suspension.

    Why are you talking in the future tense?

    If you haven't watched the show or know what it is about why are you posting about it?

    Honestly, I don't know how much of this is people loving to flaunt half truths and how much of it was just poor info. When I saw this last night from HuffPo they didn't indicate at the time it was pre-taped shows. I saw a number of friends on facebook pointing out that error in the HuffPo article as well. I imagine, as is often the case with the media bubble of blogs, that different sites started reading what one site said and just were reposting the same basic story...creating a situation early on where it seemed he was actually unsuspended. Note again, I first read it at Huffington Post...hardly a "right leaning" source...and they made no mention of it being pretaped episodes at the time.

    Problem is, A&E look like massive hypocrites doing this.

    It has long been said that the internet is one big book club where no one reads the book. LOL!

    I saw a couple episodes over the past few days. That's why I don't see how anyone would want to watch more than a few episodes of it.

    But you watched it. 1 out of 100 who viewed it in light of this controversy may continue watching. $$$$$

    Do you really think a station cares about looking Hypocritical? They care about money above anything else.

    If this was a publicity stunt, it worked like a champ. The show AND station have had more press now than they probably have had in the entire time the show has ran. Good press, bad press, doesn't make a difference as long as the money keeps flowing.

    I wouldn't be the least bit suprised if this was all a stunt.

    Re: Phil Robertson returns to A&E

    When is Phil Robertson going to speak out about the multi-fiber clothing that the Lord also finds to be an abomination?
