Report: Networks Ready to Pounce if A&E Cancels 'Duck Dynasty'

The reality show smash Duck Dynasty won't lack suitors should A&E decide to cancel the now-controversial series.

Two cable channels vow to battle for the show's rights, arguing its pro-hunting, faith-based content would be welcomed by its viewers, according to TMZ.

Quote

    The owner of the popular Christian-affiliated Hunt Channel -- a guy named Merrill Sport -- tells TMZ, he'd pick up DD in a heart beat ... and would beam the show straight to its most loyal viewers: sportsmen and Christians.

    He says, "We believe in the 2nd amendment and freedom of speech ... A&E needs to put on their big boy pants, and if they don't like the programming, they need to either let [DD] go or shut up and pay them...."

    Rusty Faulk, CEO of the outdoorsy Pursuit Channel agrees, telling us Pursuit is 100% interested in grabbing DD if A&E takes a pass. Rusty adds, "We don't censor our personalities."

Problem is - A&E have to actively cancel the show. Otherwise the Robertson's can't just go elsewhere - they'll have a non-competition clause in their contract.
