Y'all know I adore the Robertson family, so I am filling up on A&E reruns like Uncle Si fills up on his daily two gallons of sweet tea. In just three seasons, Duck Dynasty has become the number one nonfiction cable series, and the boys are on track to sell more than 750,000 duck calls this year…which is quite the jump from the 60,000 sold in 2011.
Willie, Jase, Si, and brother Phil recently shared the secrets to their success, how they remain grounded, and what's behind their scripted shenanigans…all while cracking jokes of their own. I so love this fam!
Do you need a fix of your favorite Duck Dynasty cast members during the off season? We have two solutions to help get you through – cruising and caroling with the Robertson family!
If you're looking to schedule a family vacation for next summer, you can sail the seas with Willie, Jase, Phil, Uncle Si and the rest of the Robertson crew on the Duck Commander Cruise! The family be hosting a Carnival Cruise next July, departing from Miami and headed to the Caribbean, from July 17 to 21. See all the details below. I'm guessing this will be a bigger hit than the Teresa Giudice New Year's Cruise that never happened…
To get you through the 12 months until the cruise sets sail, you can make your holidays a little brighter with the Duck Dynasty Christmas album, "Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas".
Hey Jack! I know this news is going to make some of our readers happy, happy, happy! I'll bet I could name a lot of folks who have already pre-ordered this little gem. Much like his brother Phil Robertson, Duck Dynasty's breakout starUncle Si has penned what is certain to be a hilarious best seller.
Known for his stories of 'Nam, his crazy one-liners, and his ever present pitcher of sweet tea, Si has certainly won the favor of the ladies…and he writes about fan proposals in his new book Si-Cology. Soncie, did you ask Si to marry you?
So I have two very exciting things to announce! First, it's Friday! Thank goodness for that small favor, right? And second, it seems that the Robertson family has settled their salary disputes with A&E because Willie just shared that the fabulous family will be back for a fourth season of Duck Dynasty!
I can barely contain my glee. Another season of Si? More episodes of Jase mocking his brother? Countless life lessons from Phil? A plethora of warehouse hijinx? It's going to be amazing.
If you're not watching Duck Dynasty, you're really missing out on fun-filled, family-friendly, drama-free "reality" television. However, I'm guessing that the majority of you ARE watching because season three's one hour finale was record-breaking. A&E's gem garnered 9.6 million viewers making it the most watched show on Wednesday night, blowing normal competitors like American Idol and Survivor out of the water.
Entertainment Weekly has the numbers, and it's truly phenomenal. American Idol only had a 3.3 rating on Wednesday, with Survivor scoring a 2.9 rating. The Robertson's series averaged 8.4 million total viewers per episode this season which is up 95% from its sophomore season, delivering a 4.3 rating among adults 18-49. Clearly, Soncie has been spreading the word to get folks to watch her beloved Si! Numbers like this have catapulted the series to into ratings gold, making it the cable's most watched reality show so far this year. If that wasn't enough, Duck Dynasty is the second most watched show (reality or otherwise!) behind AMC's Walking Dead. Way to go, Robertsons, and keep it coming!
To celebrate the monumentous occasion, A&E tweeted the above picture. It's proof positive that you can never, ever have too much camo.
TELL US-ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT THE ROBERTSONS DOMINATED AMERICAN IDOL?
NOOOOOooooooooooooo! In what has to be the shortest "season" in television history, this season of Duck Dynasty ended last night in an hour of awesomeness…Hawaiian style. Willie, Si, Jase, and Phil treat their family to a much needed island vacay, and, as always, hilarity ensues. I'm going to miss the Robertson group. Thank goodness for re-runs!
Si makes the mistake of going to see the movie Ted, and he's scarred for life. What's next? Care Bear gangs? Paddington Bear doing drugs? Pooh holding Piglet hostage? Oh, the humanity. As he shares his cinematic mishap with Jase, he's upset to learn from Jep that Willie now expects them all to work standing up in the warehouse. Willie has installed a bunch of desks that move upwards on hydraulic lifts. When Jase confronts his brother for his new productivity initiative, he explains to Willie that they need to quit working so hard and take a day–or six–off from the daily grind.
