A&E's Duck Dynasty Christmas Special airing tonight will feature Duck Commander Phil Robertson taking Miss Kay and Jessica on a wild hog hunt for the Family's Christmas feast, including the original taste of stuffing chicken inside all of their hunted games - turkey, suckling pigs, and ducks
Al Robertson, full-time minister at a church in West Monroe before rejoining the family business, promises much comedy in tonight's reality TV show titled "O Little Town of West Monroe," according to Shreveport Times.
He also shared that his family would be doing a live nativity scene, where "everyone has a role to play...in typical Robertson fashion," but declined to say who played what roles, from the three wise men to Mary and Joseph to the baby Jesus.
While it wouldn't be hard to imagine Uncle Si and Phil as two of the wise men, the remaining third would have several contenders. Since the family do not have any new born, baby Jesus would probably be a doll. As for Mary and Joseph, I could imagine any one of the married couples - Willie and Korie, Jase and Missy, Jep and Jessica, or Al and Lisa.
According to Shereveport Times, Robertson said the special allows the family to solemnly celebrate the birth of Christ, much as last season's Christmas episode did when the family closed by singing "Silent Night."
Although members of the Robertson family, including Phil and Sadie, have said that some parts of their prayers were edited out, the family still considers their show an opportunity that God has given them to share their faith and have worked peacefully with the television station.
"A&E has been fair all along about portraying our faith as a part of our lives," Robertson said. "Duck Dynasty' Isn't a religious show, but religion is an important part of our family, and that comes through."
Duck Dynasty has broken several ratings records on both A&E and cable television as a whole; the fourth season premiere drew 11.8 million viewers, the most-watched nonfiction cable telecast in history.
A&E will be televising this hour-long series tonight at 10/9c p.m. Online stream can be watched on AETV.com.
