There is a lot of talk lately about "Duck Dynasty" and how Willie Robertson recently spoke about catching up with President Barack Obama as he attended the State of the Union Address, per THR on Feb. 21, 2014. What should be of greater concern is that the ratings for "Duck Dynasty" are continuing to drop, and some are jokingly wondering if it isn't time for a new scandal.
Robertson was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" earlier this week and he spoke about catching up with Obama at the State of the Union after the met at last year's White House Correspondents' Dinner.
"The president's walking down the hall. And he sees me and he goes, 'Willie, what's up?' " Robertson recalled. "I'm like, 'Hey, what's up?' So we're talking, and we're having this conversation."
Ever since the "Duck Dynasty" scandal dealing with Phil Robertson and his anti-gay comments, ratings for the A&E television series have actually plummeted.
Near the end of January, "Duck Dynasty" had a decent 3.0 rating in the pivotal 18-49 age group. The next week, it dropped down to a 2.5 and that is not good news for the show. Making things worse is that the ratings are continuing to drop.
After the scandal, thousands upon millions of people rallied behind the series to make sure it wasn't dropped and that Phil Robertson returned. In the past month, the steam of that scandal has disappeared almost entirely and ratings are worse than ever.
The ratings drop for "Duck Dynasty" isn't yet enough for the show to be yanked off the air, but something needs to be done for them to be brought back up.
