A&E will continue to profit off Phil Robertson and his family during Christmas week -- despite the fact that they benched Phil for his recent anti-gay comments -- because the network will be airing SEVERAL huge "Duck Dynasty" marathons.
DD is pretty much taking over A&E's Christmas schedule. The network will air 4 separate rerun marathons of the show in 4 days (December 22-25) totaling 35.5 hours of air time.
December 22 -- 5PM-4AM EST December 23 -- 7PM-4AM EST December 24 -- 6PM-9PM EST December 25 -- 3:30PM-4AM EST
Pretty ironic ... A&E, on the one hand, is indignant over Phil's comment but not mad enough to pass up a buck ... not to mention the fact that they knew exactly how he felt before they hired him because he publicly preached about his beliefs for years.
