"Duck Dynasty" is obviously a major part of the news these days, and that didn't change on Sunday, Dec. 22, 2013. While multiple TV networks are ready to pick up the series if A&E decides to cancel it, ABC News has reported that Cracker Barrel has decided to return the "Duck Dynasty" items to its store shelves.
After just one day, Cracker Barrel has lifted its ban on Phil Robertson merchandise and has it back on the shelves of their restaurant stores. Once Cracker Barrel revealed the news of the ban, "Duck Dynasty" fans blasted them across social media, on the phone, and via email.
Cracker Barrel removed the merchandise after Robertson's controversial comments about homosexuals because the store wanted "equal treatment of all people" and "mutual respect."
With the possibility of losing a lot of money, Cracker Barrel has made an about-face since they have revealed that they "made a mistake."
With the possibility of A&E getting rid of "Duck Dynasty" from its airwaves, there are a number of other networks that are said to be "circling the waters" and ready to pick it up. At least two other networks have expressed interest in "Duck Dynasty," should it become available.
Both the Pursuit Channel (outdoors-themed shows) and the popular Christian-affiliated Hunt Channel have expressed interest.
