Is America camo’ed out?
“Duck Dynasty” wrapped up Season 5 last night with a one-hour finale show, but it seems not as many fans tuned in. According to E! Online, only 6 million watched, down significantly from the 8.4 million who watched the end of Season 4, and the 9.6 million who tuned in for the Season 3 finale.
Are Phil Robertson’s controversial remarks at the end of 2013 to blame for the drop in viewers? Or did the Robertson family reach saturation level before Phil’s statements? Season 6 has been confirmed, and perhaps the best barometer will be if the show can set a new premiere record. Season 5 premiered to 8.5 million viewers, down from 11.8 in Season 4. No Season 6 premiere date has been announced at this time.
