Duck Dynasty Ratings Take Dip In Season 5 Premiere
Hmmm, now isn't this interesting? After all the brouhaha, backlash, and backlash to the backlash over Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments in GQ, Duck Dynasty's season five premiere pulled in 8.5 million viewers Wednesday. A big number for a cable show, but almost 30 percent down from last season's premiere, which attracted 11.8 viewers last August, and less than its season three premiere last year.
Maybe all that fool talk comparing homosexuality to bestiality and terrorism, happy and singing Jim Crow-era black folks, marrying teenage girls and saying all Muslims and Chinese are controlled by the devil had something to do with it.
