'Duck Dynasty' Premiere Ratings Fall Really Short Of Expectations

Perhaps that huge anti-gay scandal didn't work out so well for A&E. Though a big showing of homophobes made a point to stick by Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson after his anti-gay comments left everyone in the world who has a heart in shock, Wednesday night's premiere of the new season was quite disappointing in terms of viewers. 

EW.com broke the news:

Though Duck Dynasty was expected by some to return to its biggest ratings yet after its huge controversy last month, the Louisiana-based reality show returned to lower viewership than its previous two premieres.

Wednesday night’s Duck Dynasty season 5 premiere had 8.5 million viewers. That’s huge for a cable reality show, but down 28 percent from its record-setting fourth season debut in August (11.8 million). It’s also slightly down from the show’s third season premiere in February last year (8.6 million). A&E notes the number up slightly from the fourth season finale on Oct. 23 (though obviously it’s standard to compare premieres to premieres).

Is Duck Dynasty over?

Maybe murdering ducks to prove one's manhood is not what it used to be.
