“Duck Dynasty” wrapped up its sixth season on Wednesday night with a decidedly quieter quack than its Season 5 finale in January.

Wednesday night’s finale grabbed 3.8 million total viewers — a 12 percent boost from last week’s episode and on par with the season average, but down from the 6 million who tuned in for the Season 5 finale.

The Season 6 premiere of the A&E reality series, which chronicles the backwoods shenanigans of the Robertson family, drew  4.6 million total viewers.
