As you know, A&E has suspended Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for the sin of not conforming to the worldview of people who don’t watch Duck Dynasty.
A&E was obviously so offended that there are actually a couple of times in their lineup where the lucrative franchise isn’t airing:
And that’s not the entire picture. As Christmas approaches, the number of airings ramp up around the clock:
Despite the suspension, A&E still has several hours of “Duck Dynasty” programming over the next week. For Thursday night, there is three hours of shows the network is airing. On Sunday Dec. 22, A&E will be airing the popular show from 5 p.m. until 4 a.m. the next morning. On Monday Dec. 23, episodes will air from 7 p.m. until 4 a.m. the next morning. On Christmas Eve, “Duck Dynasty” will be aired from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. And on Christmas Day, A&E will air “Duck Dynasty” episodes from 3:30 p.m. until 4 a.m. the next morning. All times are Eastern.
If Robertson further angers A&E, the programming execs will have to convince Disney to create a 25th hour in the day so they can squeeze in even more airings.
