‘DUCK DYNASTY’ Other Networks Circle Like Sharks IF A&E PASSES, WE’RE IN!
“Duck Dynasty” will NOT go homeless if A&E decides to pull the plug … TMZ has learned, at least two other networks are salivating at the chance to pick up the popular reality show.
The owner of the popular Christian-affiliated Hunt Channel — a guy named Merrill Sport — tells TMZ, he’d pick up DD in a heart beat … and would beam the show straight to its most loyal viewers: sportsmen and Christians.
He says, “We believe in the 2nd amendment and freedom of speech … A&E needs to put on their big boy pants, and if they don’t like the programming, they need to either let [DD] go or shut up and pay them.”
Sports adds, “A&E is too scripted. [Hunt Channel] would let the personalities flow.”
Rusty Faulk, CEO of the outdoorsy Pursuit Channel agrees, telling us Pursuit is 100% interested in grabbing DD if A&E takes a pass. Rusty adds, “We don’t censor our personalities.”
Even if DD comes to an end on A&E, we’re told its contract with the family provides they couldn’t do another show for a certain period of time.
