The reality show smash Duck Dynasty won’t lack suitors should A&E decide to cancel the now-controversial series.
Two cable channels vow to battle for the show’s rights, arguing its pro-hunting, faith-based content would be welcomed by its viewers, according to TMZ.
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….”
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.”
