Swamp People

Republicans Hate 'Jersey Shore,' Love 'The Bachelor'

Democrat, Republican TV StudySnooki's poof apparently doesn't work its magic on Republicans.

A new study by Experian-Simmons found conservative-leaning viewers tend to favor reality programming like 'Dancing With the Stars,' 'The Bachelor,' 'The Biggest Loser,' 'MythBusters,' but one exception to that trend was 'Jersey Shore.' Also among GOP favorites is the History Channel's block of programming: 'Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy,' 'American Pickers,' and 'Swamp People.'

Two other popular liberal shows, 'Glee' and 'Modern Family,' topped the conservative list last year, but are no longer two of the favorite shows among Republican viewers, according to EW. They did, however, still rank high with those on the more liberal end of the political spectrum.

swamp people lucifer gatorThe good ol' boys of 'Swamp People' (Thu., 9PM ET on HIST) came face to face with the big, bad "Lucifer Gator" on a thick and creepy bog they call "the Devil's Swamp."

After swashing around in the murky water for six hours, the hunters finally came upon their dangerous target, a giant gator that had earned the nickname, "The King of the Underworld."

While most of us would have hightailed it out of there after spying a giant gator named after the devil, the Swamp People looked the beast in the eye, grabbed a shotgun and pulled the trigger.

Mitchell Has a Close Call Hunting Frogs, on 'Swamp People' (VIDEO)

The Guist BrothersBrothers Glenn and Mitchell Guist live in Conway Bayou, La. and as we saw on 'Swamp People' (Thu., 9PM ET on History) they're master hunters.

The Guists are Cajuns, and they were taught to live off the land by their dad. So, if the fish in Conway Bayou aren't biting, they'll catch something else for dinner. This week they were out hunting for frogs at night, which is when Mitchell had a close call in the dark.

The brothers need at least 12 frogs for a decent meal, so when Mitchell sees a plump juicy one he leaps out of the boat to follow it into the swamp and quickly disappears into the darkeness. When he doesn't return, Glenn calls out for him. For a few heartpounding moments there is silence, and Glenn starts to really worry.

Suddenly Mitchell reappears, but he's empty-handed and not happy about it. "I ain't seen but one frog and he got away from me." He admits that "It's real easy to get lost in the swamp at night 'cause everything in one way looks the same."

Troy Landry Catches Massive Alligator on 'Swamp People'In Louisiana's Atchafalaya River Basin swamp, Troy Landry and his son Jacob finally catch the "big one" -- an alligator nearly 13 feet long.

"Go!!! We got 'im!" Troy screams. "This is the one ... Two years we been trying to catch this alligator," says Troy on the premiere of 'Swamp People' (Sun., 10PM ET on HIST).

The gator is so big, a crane has to move it into the storehouse. Troy enjoys showing off the 12-foot, 11-inch record-breaker, but later settles down for a quiet, home-cooked dinner of seafood (what else?) with his family -- his main priority. "Family comes first. There's nothing more important than family. Nothing."
