'Duck Dynasty' is king of the TV ratings, Poodles everywhere rejoice

The good Lord has sent his blessings to the Bayou, as the family who made millions by handmade duck calls is now a big come up from the \'Honey Boo Boo\' clan of Georgia.

'Duck Dynasty' is on fire thanks to the great reality cast ensemble of the Robertson clan, bonded by Christ, camouflage and duck hunting.

The good Lord has sent his blessings to the Bayou, as the family who made millions by handmade duck calls is now a big come up from the TLC southern fried mess, the 'Honey Boo Boo' clan of Georgia.

At least everybody on this A&E series is charming. They also impart great family-centric messages unlike Boo Boo's mother June, who clamors for the almighty dollar on the backs of her brood.

Fans of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” flocked together for an historic Wednesday night to make the back-to-back season three premiere episodes the network’s most-watched telecasts of all time among all key demos, including total viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.

The 10PM episode garnered 8.6 million total viewers as well as 5.0 million adults 18-49 and 5.0 million adults 25-54. 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.

“Duck Dynasty” has become the #1 nonfiction series on cable in 2013. The Season three premiere grew by 132% in total viewers, 117% in adults 25-54 and 127% in adults 18-49 versus the season two premiere.

So where do we begin?

Last night, Willie, Jase, Si and Phil demonstrated how the traditions and rules of the hunt can be broken, and how Poodles are the smartest breed of dogs on the planet.

Jase is mental for the start of duck season, and teases Willie to no end about his less than enthusiastic approach to what seems to be Christmas part deux for the clan.

Willie shows up to the camp-out in his RV armed with his rapier wit and a bowl of creamy fettuccine. This enrages camping purist Jase. In the end, carbs and blankies inside a dry RV win the war.

This episode also sees Phil get his scripture approved freak on with Miss Kay, Bayou style. Showers are the prerequisite..

Later we see that Si has found the best hunting dog ever: A poodle!
