'Duck Dynasty' is the new 'Jersey Shore'
Umm, don't tell Morrissey but "Duck Dynasty" is officially one of the hottest shows on TV. It was seen by 8.6 million viewers last night, its third season premiere - which is some kind of crazy - and obliterated the major broadcast networks in those categories the networks love to talk so much about (young adults, etc. etc.) "Jersey Shore" reached this height before falling off a cliff, but there's no indication the "Duck" dudes are even close to such a fate. Expect this number to grow from here...
The factoids, if you are of a mind to read them, via A&E:

For the hour, Duck Dynasty averaged 8.6 million total viewers, 5.0 million adults 18-49 and 4.9 million adults 25-54, making both episodes the two most-watched series telecasts in network history among all key demos.
