DUCK DYNASTY continues slide in ratings

I guess we’ll never know ALL the reasons why, but coming right on the heels of Duck Dynasty patriarch’s anti-gay comments last month the series has taken a significant hit in the ratings.

From Variety:

One week after returning to kick off its fifth season with a 3.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.5 million viewers overall, “Duck Dynasty” slid to a 2.9 in the demo and 6.65 million total viewers, according to Nielsen.

This is the smallest same-night crowd for an original episode of the series since the second-season finale drew 6.45 million in December 2012.
