Outdoor Channel Weekly Programming Highlights

June 2, 2016

As Summer Rolls in, the Network is Feeling the Heat: A/C Breaks in “Duck Dynasty”; Florida Heat Effects Turkey Hunt in “Away” and the Boys Head to the Arizona Desert in “Gridiron Outdoors”

 DENVER (June 2, 2016) – With summer quickly approaching and some areas of the country already feeling summer temperatures, Outdoor Channel promises to contribute to the heat wave during the week of June 6–12 with original and compelling programming.

Viewers will continue to quack – duck-duck-duck-duck – with four episodes in a row of Duck Dynasty airing every Monday night. First, Willie and Korie decide to buy their son his own car after he leaves the pickup in the driveway with an empty gas tank. Next, a disgruntled Uncle Si quits his job at the Duck Commander. Then, Willie installs a surveillance system in the warehouse after Jase breaks into his office for supplies. Lastly, as luck would have it, when a heatwave rolls into West Monroe, Louisiana, the A/C unit in the Duck Commander warehouse simultaneously breaks down – turning the assembly room into a sweltering sweatshop.

Then, viewers will cozy up at home with Friday Night at the Movies airing the 1972 film – Jeremiah Johnson, a mountain man who yearns to live a solitary life but, through his impressive one-on-one combat skills, quickly becomes wrapped up in a long vendetta with Native Americans. Then, Away presented by Go RVing airs the second episode in the four-part mini-series, where a group of four guys head to the Florida Panhandle for a turkey hunt – in grandpa’s conventional travel trailer. When the birds are no where to be found due to the Florida heat, the guys grab their tackle boxes and head to the coast to see what’s biting.

Next, Major League Fishing airs the second round of sudden death in the Shell Rotella Challenge Cup, with only three competitors advancing to the championship. Finally, Gridiron Outdoors closes out the week with a two-part special. The sons of two-time Super Bowl quarterback, Jeff Hostetler, organize an Arizona desert hunt as a gift to their father.
