This final note from reality television: The cable channel A&E announced this afternoon Phil Robertson and the whole “Duck Dynasty” gang are coming back.

Robertson was put on indefinite hiatus earlier this month for comments that were controversial, relating to how the Bible informs his view of gays.

A&E now says:

Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family, a family that America has come to love.

A&E also says it’s going to launch a public service ad campaign promoting: “unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people.”
