This actually really surprises me. Ratings for the premier of this season's Duck Dynasty were actually down dramatically from last year. Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that going on a racist, homophobic rant ain't great for ratings. (Actually, who knows?) But I'm surprised just the brouhaha itself didn't juice ratings. I've never watched the show. But I could have seen myself tuning in just to see what these dudes were about. Apparently not.
