'Duck Dynasty' closes out season five up in the ratings over previous weeks

By Kyle Johnson,

Duck Dynasty rebounded from last week's season low in the TV ratings, but still became the show's second weakest finale since the very first season.

A&E's reality series averaged 6 million viewers on Wednesday night, which is a 28 percent bump up from the penultimate episode, but 2.5 million viewers lower than what the season debuted to, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Dynasty did do quite well in the advertiser-important 18-49 demographic, however, with a 2.5 rating. With that number in the demo, the show was second only to ABC's Modern Family.

Last week, the second to last episode of the fifth season of Dynasty managed to drop to a season low in the demo with a 1.9. With that low number, the show suffered the indignity of being edged out by The Housewives of Atlanta, which pulled in a 2.0 in the demo.

The show struggled in its latest season, but many programs on TV would definitely love to have its numbers, which were still consistently good.

Ratings for the show haven't been anywhere close to what it premiered to back in January. Dynasty premiered to 8.5 million and a 3.3 in the key demo.
