Liberal Twitter hasn’t had much good news lately, which may be why the news that A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” — once the most watched reality TV series in cable history — is ending after a five-year run has been generated so much delight on social media.
Duck Dynasty is cancelled. Gonna miss seeing Phil Robertson’s beard on tv….
I am, of course, talking about his wife.

And the Duck Dynasty family members drop the act and smile. Uncle Si reveals a thick Russian accent.
“Our mission is complete.”

It’s sad that DUCK DYNASTY has come to an end after 5 years. Good news, though. They’re all being given cabinet positions in Washington!

Duck Dynasty is getting canceled. Sorry republicans, you can’t have the house, senate, presidency, AND the television.

The Robertson family made a “big quacking announcement” on Nov. 16, when they revealed that the reality television show is calling it quits. After 11 seasons of mucking around in Louisiana’s swamps and shouting catchphrases — by turns charming and infuriating the American TV-viewing public — the heavily bearded duck-hunting Robertson family is heading south, for good.
On the show’s Nov. 16 episode and in a post to Twitter the same day, they announced the series will end after this season. The series finale will take place on April 12.

But don’t feel too bad for the Robertsons. As Donald Trump proved, a successful reality TV career can be one hell of a stepping stone.
