NEW YORK, NY – MAY 24, 2012 – Last night’s season finale of A&E’s newest hit series “Duck Dynasty” drew record ratings for the series with back-to-back episodes at 10PM and 10:30PM ET/PT. The 10:30PM episode of "Duck Dynasty" hit a series high of 2.6 million total viewers and 1.5 million in both adults 25-54 and 18-49 demos.

The newly minted multimillionaire family is kept in line by business-savvy Willie, who runs Duck Commander with the help of his brother Jase, their respective wives Korie and Missy, patriarch and founder of the company, Phil, and uncle Si. Together they run a booming business that employs half their neighborhood, but at the end of the day, you can find the whole family around matriarch Miss Kay’s dinner table.

    Glad to hear. When 2.5 million is consider a hit, the market is truly fragmented.
    Continued success.

    Quack, quack

  • lauta golab

    This is my favorite show always laughing….its nice to see how close they are as a family

  • WorkingMan

    its not what you expect, this is one to watch for laughter, your nature curiosity and a strong family

    uncle Si is funny as hell

  • Jeff (Canada)

    I expect this to be because of people hearing about the news of one of the brothers dying.

  • joterri

    Jeff,
    What brother died? None from Duck Dynasty has,or are you talking about another show?

  • DuckFan

    Great show!!!!!!! The Brother from Swamp People died on an airboat not Duck Commander.

  • tealady

    I would like to know if Duck Dynasty is going to be renewed for another season. I love this show and it would make me “Happy, Happy, Happy” to see it renewed.

  • Mark Young

    Finally!! A clean show that is funny, teaches
    Moral values and family structure. We need
    More family’s like the Robertson’s and Christian
    Examples. God bless Duck Dynasty!!

    Hey Jack love to hear that DD will be back! I’m not even a hunter, and I absolutely love this show. It’s very family freindly (even with Si’s Nam stories ;^). Can’t wait for the fall when we get to see more!!

    Cut em’ all, Jack
