'Duck Dynasty' finale is A&E's most-watched telecast

It seems more and more viewers are flocking to watch “Duck Dynasty.”

Wednesday night’s season finale drew 6.5 million viewers, making it A&E’s most-watched telecast to date, according to a press release.

In its second season, “Duck Dynasty” has grown by 139% in total viewers.

The unscripted series stars the Robertson family, who found money and fame in the duck calls and decoys business with their brand, Duck Commander.

“ ‘Duck Dynasty’ represents the best of A&E’s unique brand of storytelling, showcasing authentic and engaging characters,” President of A&E Network and BIO Channel Bob DeBitetto said in a press release. “It’s extremely gratifying to see more and more viewers flocking to the series week after week.”

Fans of the series will have to wait until early next year for new episodes. In the meantime, A&E will re-air the record-breaking season finale on Saturday at 9 p.m.

    Are you kidding me? What moron would find this show entertaining? A&E should be ashamed of itself. We are truly witnessing the dumbing-down of America...

    Hey,you can watch whatever makes you happy.If What ever this show is about can provide you with happiness,then I'm happy for you.

    My dad always watches Fringe,but he hates it and keeps talking about how stupid it is,and I'm like 'why do ya watch it?' and he's like 'well,there's nothing on'............. I don't get it.......

    I only watch what I LOVE,and that is shows about airplanes and cartoons.Very specific cartoons,I might add.I NEVER watch TV just to watch it,no siree.!!

    Soon A&E will consist of shows that are nothing but fat drunk rednecks watching the History channel.

      I happened to glance at it night, (girls rule and beards lose), and all I kept thinking was 'where's the snow'? Of course if they really had snow, there would be a problem. The Robertsons are a vegetarian's nightmare.

    I really love watching this show. It's funny and it really shows how hard it is to work with family. In the end though you can tell the family is really close.
