Phil Robertson Calls Out, “We need your support!” in the final months of the Duck legacy.
Something bad is happening.
The Robertson family may be getting pulled off A&E entirely. The problem, according to the people at the network, is simple. There are not enough viewers re-watching and continually watching the show.
Duck Dynasty first aired 2012. After 10 seasons they’re being scrapped just like that. It’s sad really, that such a dedicated family can be thrown out so easily. Especially when so many people look up to them for guidance, inspiration, entertainment and support. It’s typical of Hollywood though.
It’s hard to believe, with the obsessive nature of the people watching the show. I don’t know for, sure but just about everyone I know loves Phil, Si, Sadie and the rest of the Duck Dynasty clan more than any other family on TV.
Why is that you may ask? Here’s my guess.
The Robertson family consists of real people. Unlike shows like Keeping Up With The Kardashians or any of the Real Housewives of anywhere… The Robertson family is real. They’re real, red-blooded Americans who care about this country and where it’s going.
Sure they’re not perfect, but who is? I know I’m not. But I do know that the Robertson family has integrity and morals they stick to. That is something hard to find in this day and age, and something I think we can all appreciate. Christian or not, there is no denying that the DD family is strongly bonded and very supportive of one another.
As we all know, the execs in Hollywood are no B.S. when it comes to money and numbers. They will throw people under the bus, out the window or simply let them go without two thoughts. So I’m not surprised in the least that I’m hearing this. That doesn’t mean I support it though. To me, a family that has put this much time in deserves a chance to regain their footing with fans. Even though they’ve made mistakes as we all do. They still should have a chance for their viewers to help them get their show up and running again like it was in the beginning.
If you’re a diehard lover of the Robertson family, have any respect for them, or have ever benefited from any of their wisdom, here’s what I suggest you do. Reach out to A&E network they air on and say you want the show kept running.
Then share this post on Twitter, FB, Google + and anywhere else you can think of to show the execs in Hollywood you’re serious. The more people they get supporting the show, the better chance we have at seeing another season run.
Until then, keep your fingers crossed and make sure you updated with the articles published on this site.
