    If they do leave A&E, expect it to be picked up by another network... with Phil. Bottom line: There's money to be made in them there swamps!

    Willie seemed to be in charge to me. I think they said he was the CEO of the company and I believe that if he goes another season of shows without Phil the others will follow.
    As I have said before, they may be wealthy but they are not stupid.

    Phil founded the company and was successful with it. "Very" successful might be a relative term, but he was more successful than most people when most people form their own companies. Willie came along and turned the company into the multi-million dollar corporation this it had become prior to the show. Willie has a knack for business and promotion, to be sure... and attention.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Why isn't there a "who gives a ****, NDAA just passed again and nobody mentioned it" option?

    Perhaps if they got into the mechanics of what makes their duck calls better than anyone else's or the psychology of the ducks they hunt the show may have something that could pass as content. As it is though, what I saw was a family joking around without cause or purpose with a very low entertainment value. The goal of the episode I saw seemed to be to get out of cleaning up the warehouse, playing ping pong, taking the reluctant wives deer hunting and getting uncle Si new glasses. The rest of the show was Phil berating and belittling everyone he had contact with.
    To answer your question ...No... I'm sure I could do better than that.
    The Kardashians are about on the same entertainment par and I have only watched one full episode of that as well.
    Duck Dynasty seems to be just another, let's laugh at the stupid hillbillys, kind of a show, of which there are many these days, with the twist that these guys run a successful business and are wealthy... It's kind of like a modern version of the Beverly Hillbillys without the benefit of a decent screenplay, script or professionally trained actors.
    Right. I get it. So its not your cup of tea. And you watched it for the first time last week after the bruhaha started. And you dont like what Phil said, so, really...you just want HIM gone.

    I can see why they should be concerned about your opinion.

    It is noted that the vast majority of people with the worst things to say about Phil and/or the show have also never watched it. Makes one wonder on what they base their opinion.

    I watched an episode just so I would have an informed opinion... I formed one, and I gave it.
    As I have said before, I believe that A&E were planning on getting rid of Phil a long time ago for the reasons I noted and that they used the GQ interview as an excuse ... it was not the reason for canning him.
    Even people who seem to like the show tend to agree with me that Phil is an asshole.

    Well...to start with he said homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible...you just cant say such things. I mean...unless you are a democrat sitting in the White House. Or a liberal democrat minister that happens to be black.

    The buybull means absolutely nothing to me as I am an atheist.
    So what Phil said in that interview referencing the buybull means nothing at all to me except that it was somewhat uncouth.
    As I have said before ... I think he is an asshole for many reasons.

    He has a right to say it. A&E has a right to do whatever they want as a result. I don't agree or disagree with how A&E handled it. It's their company and their image. I don't care how they handle it.

    One episode merely gives a taste. One episode does not impart comprehensive knowledge.

    Yes, Phil can be a jerk, but a cast of nothing but agreeable nice people sitting around and sing campfire songs doesn't make for entertaining tv.

    Why do you believe they were planning on getting rid of Phil?
