Duck Dynasty ratings slide on new season opener

duckdynastyDuck Dynasty’s sixth season premiere on US cable channel A&E pulled in just 4.6 million viewers.

In comparison, the unscripted ob doc’s fourth season launch smashed ratings records with 11.8 million.

The season six launch is also down nearly four million on the season five launch, which took 8.5 million.
