I'd say is this for real, but I just watched about 5 minutes of it on TLC.

Really?!? Is anyone that bad off that they'd watch this?

Honey Boo Boo

BTW the little I could read about this on the YouTube write ups is that she juices the little girl up and the network thinks that's funny.

I thought there were rules against exploiting the underage. Guess it doesn't apply to low-class rednecks.

fwiw, I'd never watch it. TLC has become Redneck TV.

My wife loves trashy reality tv, so of course this was set to record on the DVR as soon as it was advertised.

This show is the worst possible thing that could be put on TV. I hate it. They are a bunch of white trash rednecks that want to make a profit off their daughter who sounds like an illiterate shiny happy person for her age.

I can't believe it made it on the air. How do you pitch a series like this?

The promos are more than enough for me, I've never watched it. My understanding is it's a spinoff from the 'Toddler and Tiaras' show, which is revolting enough.

On the other hand all those reality shows are scripted, so who knows what the people are really like.

Should have call it "Hey y'all, watch this."

And then sponsored it by Budweiser.

Another example of why I cancelled my cable ten years ago.

Scrolling through channels while on the treadmill on the gym, I came across the trailers for this, watched a few minutes of "Hoarders" and the gypsy wedding program, and it scares the crap out of me. Honestly, I fear for the future of humanity.

Reality TV must be ridiculously cheap to make. No writers, no actors; instead of finding the best clips, you find the worst.

Whenever you see what appears to be a bad crash on the road, do you look? Reality TV is kind of like that.

It actually had higher ratings than the Republican National Convention. (no political comment intended).

Remember the days when the learning channel and the discovery channel actually carried educational and interesting programming?

Now...TLC is E36 M3ty reality tv for women, and TDC is the same, but for men.

I read the paper at work when I'm working nights and I read about this show a few weeks ago. It sounded so bad, I saved the article to show my buddy. I saw a commercial for it the other night and it looks every bit as bad as the article made it sound.

ratings sometimes are a bit misleading ... several yrs ago re-runs of the Andy Griffith Show and Designing on a Dime had higher ratings than the NHL All Star game ...
