What a difference a year makes.

On March 21, 2012, A&E Network premiered the reality series "Duck Dynasty," profiling the Robertsons of Louisiana, who have made a tidy fortune from their company, Duck Commander, which manufactures handmade duck calls (there's also Buck Commander, which focuses on deer-hunting paraphernalia).

Almost immediately, the saga of Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson and his nearest and dearest -- his wife, Korie; his parents, company founder Phil and Miss Kay; brothers Jase and Jep; and Phil's eccentric brother, Uncle Si -- became a runaway hit.

Although the Robertson men look like members of a Zz Top tribute band (and Zz Top's "Sharp Dressed Man" is the show's theme on A&E), with their long hair, flowing beards and varied collection of headgear -- especially Willie's signature bandannas -- "Duck Dynasty" offers a portrait of a functional family that works, plays and prays together.
