DUCK DYNASTY RATINGS TAKE A HIT

Apparently not everyone agreed with Duck Dynasty’s Phi Robertson’s racial and off color remarks which earned him a brief suspension from his show by network A&E, a suspension which was lifted after an outcry by fans of the show, and I assume after A&E realized the show was their bread and butter.

Family members also agreed not to do the show without the family patriarch.

However, their ratings for this years opening show was off by 3 million compared to last years. 11 million viewers. Still 8 million viewers is nothing to sneeze at.

  1. Perhaps not everyone agreed with A & E’s knee jerk reaction and wasn’t so quick to forgive even though they saw dollar signs and tried to back pedal…..just a thought

  2. I would like to know the sales numbers of “Duck Dynasty” merchandise during the “suspension”. No one has proven too me that it wasn’t a made up controversy to increase sales. As the lion says “that’s just my two cents worth”.
