This publicity image released by the National Geographic Channel shows the four of the captains from the series, "Wicked Tuna," posing on a pier in Gloucester, Mass. The channel faces the challenge of trying to build a successful network in the era of Honey Boo-Boo and "Duck Dynasty" without damaging a National Geographic brand that has stood for quality since the magazine was first published in 1888. The first three months of 2013 was the network's most popular quarter since its launch in 2001. The National Geographic Channel averaged 554,000 viewers in prime time, propelled by "Doomsday Preppers," the "Wicked Tuna" series about fishermen in Gloucester, Mass., and a movie dramatization of Bill O'Reilly's book, "Killing Lincoln."
