The A&E’s top show scored higher than the yuppie favorite. At A&E, they are happy, happy, happy.
Like a flock of ducks lured to their doom by a Duck Commander duck call, American Idol was flying along, oblivious to what was happening on the ground. The Robertson men were in their blind, shotguns loaded.
Uncle Si had his flask of iced tea. Jase was ecstatic: another day off. Phil’s face was covered with that black stuff he smears on. Even Willie was happy. “This is going to be great for business.”
