New York, NY - April 25, 2013 - A&E's monster hit, "Duck Dynasty," continues to break new records with the third season finale delivering an incredible 9.6 million total viewers for the one-hour episode. The episode was also watched by an A&E record 5.6 million adults 25-54, 5.5 million adults 18-49 and 2.6 million adults 18-34, becoming the most-watched series telecast in network history among all key demos. "Duck Dynasty's" 4.3 national adults 18-49 rating (total US) was also 34% stronger than last night's top broadcast show, "American Idol" (3.2 adults 18-49 rating).

Season three of "Duck Dynasty" averaged 8.4 million total viewers (up 95% versus season 2), 4.8 million adults 18-49 (up 92%) and 4.7 million adults 25-54 (up 81%), making it cable's #1 non-fiction series this year, and the #2 original series overall (behind only AMC's "Walking Dead").

"Duck Dynasty" was also the most social show on television Wednesday night.
