Now in its sixth season on the A and E channel, Duck Dynasty is the highest rated reality-TV show in cable history, with an average 10.5 million viewers per episode.
n a recent interview with Fox411, Uncle Si (Silas Merritt Robertson) commented on how many aspects of the reality program are unplanned. They had stumbled across “fresh beaver signs” during one episode, he said, adding that “nobody scouted this out –okay? We just do this on the spur of the moment.”
He further said, “We was doing a film one day about hunting for the beaver dam, and I said – I laughed at the director. I said, ‘You actually think you’re directing this thing.’ I said, ‘You’re not.’ I said, ‘Hey, the Lord God Almighty is directing Duck Dynasty.’”
