All dynasties inevitably end up falling.
The Ming Dynasty of China…
The San Francisco 49ers dynasty of the 1980s…
And now it appears that Duck Dynasty is in the early stages of crumbling!
The A&E reality series scored their lowest ratings for a premiere episode in three seasons! Duck Dynasty brought in only 8.5 million viewers, down from nearly 12 million for their Season 4 debut!
So why weren’t as many of their fervent fans there to tune in last night?
Could it be that homophobia, bigotry, and racism don’t sell so well with TV audiences?!
Thank goodness everyone's okay!
Several stage hands were rushed to the hospital early Friday morning after country singer Luke Bryan's Ohio State concert last night—due to a terrifying stage accident!
A forklift reportedly crashed into a portion of the stage during production load-out, crumpling on top of some crew members!
It's been reported that 4 people were taken to a nearby hospital with injuries, none of which were life-threatening, thankfully!
Luke's next concert, which was scheduled for tonight in Lexington, Kentucky, has been pushed to February because of the obvious issues with the stage!
The singer tweeted:

Another life has been lost too young as Playboy Playmate Cassandra Lynn Hensley has passed away at 34 years old.
It is reported that she was found dead at a friend's Marina Del Rey area home on Wednesday. She was supposedly found by one of her friends floating in a bathtub. She was unable to be revived.
Now, police are reportedly investigating the matter that is being called a possible overdose. While the autopsy has been completed, toxicology testing needs to be done to further determine the cause of death.
Foul play is not suspected in connection with her sudden death.
Cassandra was Playboy's Miss February in 2006.
Our thoughts are with her family and friends during this difficult time.
