Will Duck Dynasty Get Cancelled?
Please do not let this show get cancelled!! It seems that my favorite TV family has hit a bump in the road. The cast of Duck Dynasty is in salary negotiations with the powers that be at A&E. I say “give’m what they want”! This is the best show on television and we can’t lose it.
The show is pulling in almost 9 million viewers each week and has a 3.9 rating with adults between the ages of 18-49. The only show that ranks higher on cable than Duck Dynasty is AMC’s The Walking Dead.
Season 4 is on hold right now until the cast can renegotiate their salaries with A&E. The guys are wanting $200,000 per episode. This is not ‘abnormal’ with reality shows. The casts of other highly successful shows include Jersey Shores and Deadliest Catch both of which got what they wanted.
Although the network doesn’t make money off of the speaking engagements, book sales or other side projects the cast might do they are still making quite a bit off of the Robertson’s hit show and sources on both sides are positive it will all get worked out and Season 4 will be a go.
If they don’t, it would be quite a mistake, in my opinion. Viewers of the show bring in advertisers money which is how the network makes money and they can’t do that without the Robertson clan.
This is a fresh, fun, family show and I along with many, apparently 8.6 million, other fans will be highly disappointed if we don’t get our Season 4 dose of Duck Dynasty! And you can take that to the bank Jack!
