    Go Sponge Bob! LOL

  • eric

    I stopped watching Duck Dynasty when they shot a bunch of beavers in a pond and just left them there and took off.

  • Chris

    Challenge keeps going down, hopefully it picks up as it gets to the end of the season.

  • Nick57

    There is still hope for American values for the next generation.

  • Cali

    love to see a good, clean family show doing so well. God Bless the whole family.

  • Donald Duck

    Good to see a show that doesn’t promote g a y lifestyles, killing innocent people, bleeps every 2 seconds, narcissism, idiot competitions, and glorifying stupidity.

    Bet that’s why it’s #1.

  • Cali

    Steven, Read your little post and would like to advise you that you don’t have a clue. I do love to see the family pray together, as do many other American’s. It’s nice to see these guys go about there day not trying so dang hard to impress other people (as I suspect you do). They are all college educated and have done well for themselves. You will never come close to their success, and yes, I say this without knowing you. As far as those that watch this program, hold your insults. I have no idea what your accomplishments in life have been, but mine is far from mediocre. I still find the fact that you call them “failures” hilarious. When you raise a great family like theirs while running an incredibly successful business, why don’t you call A&E.

  • Chris

    I watch a lot of stupid reality TV, but I can’t sit through 1 episode of Duck Dynasty. The most fake and lame show on TV, I don’t understand how it’s popular.

  • saxman

    Buffoonery always sells, and people are looking to have a good time, not watch ‘morality tales’. Even so, their success has surprised me, and I like buffoonery as much as anybody else.

  • Eric

    I’m sure I’d like these guys on a personal level, but MAN! are they annoying and their “show” absolutely sucks.

  • Claritas

    We have become a nation of meatheads.

  • tpartynitwit

    These dirty hippies need a shower, a shave, and a slap!

  • Alan

    $#%&. Now millions of guys are going to start going around looking like the Duck guys.

    I watched The Soup, but, that 500th Live episode was no big deal. It was funny, yet, it was nothing special.

    Too bad about Futurama dropping in the ratings.
    I hope that it goes up next week, and the shows returns either as direct to video, or cable TV special. After all the times it’s returned after being cancelled, I doubt if it’s really ending in 2013. It’s not over until the producers say it’s really ended and done once and for all.

  • Jim

    The public needs to know these dangerous extremists are keeping Obama from passing his growth agenda, government growth that is. These guys scare H… out of the left.

  • hanp

    I absolutely have no idea about Duck Dynasty. I assume that they are a family hunting for ducks? LOL

    But seriously, why are they so immensely popular? What’s so special about them?

  • Tony JJ

    Any numbers for Scandal repeats on BET Wednesday night?

  • JoeyB

    Hah! People are finally sick of looking at limp wristed , pansey-ass, hook – nosed money grubbers.They are fascinated by “Real” Men.They wish….

  • A small request

    To those promoting the wholesomeness of Duck Dynasty:

    My copy of the Bible helpfully prints everything Jesus actually said in a different color from the rest of the text. Strangely, he never says a single word about hating gay people, or hating Jewish people (obviously), or hating non-believers and foreigners.

    In contrast, he’s very forthright with his opinions about the wealthy (they should share all they have with the poor), about the religiously dogmatic (kindness and generosity of spirit are more important than rigid adherence to tradition), and even whether you should hate people who hate you (you shouldn’t).

    So maybe you could tone down the bigotry, huh? Thanks.
