MONROE- The new season of "Duck Dynasty" did not draw as many eyes as it has in the past.

The audience was down nearly 30% compared to previous years. New episodes returned Wednesday night to the cable network A&E.

It was the first fresh episode since cast member Phil Robertson made controversial statements about gay people and African Americans. He was suspended, then reinstated after a backlash from fans.

The show was up against another popular reality show, American Idol, on broadcast television, too.

"Duck Dynasty" is in its fifth season.
