Duck Dynasty Cast

Cable's biggest reality hit Duck Dynasty returns tonight. The show consistently beat broadcast television during the regular television season. Its prior season premiere on February 27 garnered a giant 3.9 adults 18-49 rating and its finale on April 24 scored a monster 4.3 adults 18-49 rating.  If it managed that during the season (though the finale did air against repeats on the Big 3), how high will it soar in the dog days of summer, when America has turned to cable for its TV fix? Make your predictions below.

    Whatever it gets, it will put Bates Motel to shame. :D

    ^^^ CORNY

    These guys are probably laughing all the way to the bank. This show is fake, but entertaining no less

  • don

    I pray it bombs

  • rgxx

    I pray it smashes records – of an-all time high.

    but I guessed a 4.7

  • DenverDean

    Considering how well the multiple repeats perform each week on a couple of different night, I’d be surprised if it didn’t come close to 5.0.

  • Sam

    As ridiculous and staged as most of these shows are, there are a bunch I like (Hell’s Kitchen, Cake Boss, Amish Mafia, and my favorite, Pawn Stars). But I just can’t get into this one. It’s slow, a bit boring, and, honestly, not very funny. What am I missing?

  • Joseph

    Looking for a 4.7 in the 18-49 demo, which will likely top the combined 18-49 demographic ratings of ABC, CBS, and NBC in that time period (10 P.M. EDT)

    It will be the most-watched show in it’s time period, but may finish behind the live “America’s Got Talent” results show as the night’s most-watched show in overall viewers.

    But “Duck Dynasty” may be the most-watched show of the night in the 18-49 demo.

    @Sam: you should give it some more time. I watched random episodes, got hooked only after 3 or 4. Didn’t see it as slow,; and it’s funny as hell. I do love Pawn Stars, but even they started to copy the style and create situations similar with DD. Now I don’t know what’s my fav reality show, Duck, Pawn or Gold Rush :))

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    This show is God awful. I’ve tried watching it before, and I just don’t see a point to it at all.

  • Big Jon

    Forget ALL these lame reality shows.

    I’ll be watching “Futurama”, thank you!

  • Lex Sr.

    I love the show. Most of the things they do, I have done in my life time. Hunting, fishing, etc. I was taught at an early age how to take care of myself and not depend on government for hand outs. I can see where city slickers wouldn’t understand the show. The Ducks guys know that food doesn’t get made in the store.

  • snoot

    Well said, Lex Sr. This is the second best show on tv (behind TBBT in my humble opinion). I’d love to see it hit a 5.0 tonight!

  • Hugh

    This show’s a juggernaut

  • steve

    whatever it gets itll put the rest of tv to shame im going for a somewhat of a cautious 4.5 as it is still summer so just never no
