    Screw Honey Boo Boo. That show is an affront to humanity.

  • STCG

    And what does this tell everyone no brainier mindless entertainment wins out again in our new and improved society scary thought is it not.

  • pll fan

    are those finale numbers for m&j and baby daddy? if so, that’s really sad. actually, it’s really sad regardless if it’s a finale or not. both shows have performed terribly all summer.

  • Baby Daddy fan

    Love Baby Daddy! Great season and so glad to see it in the top 100.

  • Titaniumman

    I love the way that the entertainment wonks can’t figure out why the show is so successful.
    The simple truth is there are still a lot of people out there in T.V land that appreciate a show that has no Rap or Hip Hop,Young women dancing like pole dancers without poles,and foul language.
    But they do like to see an extended family that plays together and prays together.

  • Chief Suspect

    Good Grief ! Whatza matter for me? I never even heard of the program before.

  • joe mack

    someone has to lead, glad it’t them and not some rerun of a network show.

  • Marcus2

    How about requiring that “Ducky” guy to TAKE OFF the American Flag
    he uses as a head band!

  • Melissa

    Duck Dynasty continues to impress.

  • rob60990

    I just knew the Drudge Report site linked this article.

  • Unicorn

    So sad to see Futurama going downhill in its last episodes.

  • DPaulBeck

    Love em! Love this best about em: Vimeo 72860608

    @pll fan

    I think those are the final numbers for M&J & Baby Daddy, but it is odd to see an 0.5 rating when the viewership numbers themselves aren’t really all that high considering their primetime timeslots…but then again 0.5 is nothing to rave about either. I am really expecting one of these shows to be canceled by next year…most like Baby Daddy despite the fact it was renewed for a 3rd season. But I hope I’m wrong, but I must admit I think I enjoyed the 1st season of Baby Daddy more.

  • Steven

    I sincerely doubt that people watch Duck Dynasty because they like to see “a family that prays together,” no matter how many times that one dude posts that same comment under a new name.

    It’s standard-issue reality TV schlock, putting up stereotyped redneck/hillbilly/low-income citizens for general mockery and amusement. It’s a way of tapping into the audience that would like to feel superior to someone but doesn’t want to watch something more traumatic like hoarders or drug addicts, so instead some producers trot out a gaggle of hicks and edit the footage to emphasize how even when they’re successful at something, they’re still failures compared to “normal” people. (Oh, look, he’s not attractive and can’t dress well or speak clearly! What a hoot!)

    Which is sad, but whatever: clearly there are people who get off on that, and enough of them have Nielsen boxes to make that a lucrative target audience to aim for. It doesn’t make it less reprehensible, but I guess if you’re watching “Duck Dynasty,” you’re not out tying cans to the tails of cats or whatever cruel fun you used to indulge in before reality TV came along.

  • Mike

    I watched this show and it is dumber than chit! Must be a lot of stupid people nowadays!

  • lardosardo

    Wow thats not saying much for the AMerica npeople now is it.

  • Mike

    All these shows SUCK! No wonder America is getting DUMBER & MORE BRAINWASHED

  • PurpleDrazi

    Nice to see The Bridge holding steady.

  • SC

    Steven:

    Your comment that “It’s a way of tapping into the audience that would like to feel superior to someone..” is belied by the fact that even though I don’t fish and I don’t hunt (heck, I’ve never even fired a gun), the Robertsons are people I would love to hang out with and be friends with, and I’ve seen that sentiment repeated multiple times by people in multiple venues.

    I actually avoided the show at first because the commercials made it seem as if it was going to be that sort of “look at the freakish rednecks” program you think it is. Then, one day, there was nothing else to watch so I ended up watching a marathon of the first season and I was hooked, because it is most emphatically NOT a freak show; if it is tapping into anything, the show taps into the instinctive need human beings have for family and community that shows like Ozzie and Harriet tapped into. In fact, Ozzie and Harriet (the longest running live action sitcom ever, if I recall) is the appropriate comparison: both are shows based around a real family with the only difference being that Ozzie and Harriet was more fictionalized.

    Does anyone else think it’s really, really funny how many times Duck Dynasty appears in that list?

    The most watched television shows prove that the movie “Idiocracy” is our future.
