Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Sets Ratings Record, Defeats Republican National Convention

by at . Comments

Here's an idea: perhaps Honey Boo Boo should have spoken at the Republican National Convention.

No way she'd do a worse job than Clint Eastwood.

Ratings for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo on TLC reached a series high on Wednesday, increasing a whopping 30 percent from the previous edition's record-setter, as three million households tuned in to watch Honey Boo Boo and her family go to a waterpark.

Based on the initial Nielson report, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo earned a a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49, narrowly edging coverage of the RNC on Fox News: it could only muster a 1.2 in that same time period.

What makes her show so popular, aside from the fact that it rarely mentions boring issues such as tax rates and avoids the controversy of "legitimate rape?" Said June Shannon to Ryan Seacrest:

"Our fan base tells us that when they have a bad day they can be able to watch our show and be able to get a good laugh; I honestly laugh at the show too because it is kind of funny, because we know we have fun filming it. It's just all about having fun making memories."

I Love this show. I really don't know why, but it makes me laugh. Why does everyone have to be so negative. If you don't like it, TURN THE TV!! June you go girl!!

So sick of disgusting-acting fat folks on tv. Ugh, won't watch again. Made me want to puke (these folks would be gross even if not so enormous).

I've never watched the Honey Boo Boo show. However, my feeling for any and all shows is that if you don't like it, don't watch it...period.

no wonder we keep getting people in office who don't care about anyone and nobody knows anything about politics- the American people are all sitting around at home stuffing their complacent faces watching an obese, white trash family humiliate themselves for the viewer's amusement. i am so done

Watching fatties go to a water park? This is entertainment? I personally like to avoid going to water parks for this reason. You want to laugh? You want to have fun and grow closer to your family? Get off the fucking couch and go to the park, an art festival, the library. Doing almost anything else would be a better use of your time. You only get one life and do you really want to waste your precious little time on this planet watching this mind numbing crap? Even for one minute!!!!

Stfu with the negative comments it's getting real old it's soo obvious that you watch the show or you wouldn't know what it's about. All this bullshit talkin is why people r tunning in 2 c what the big fuss is so you're actually helping her sucess by giving an opinion cuz you make her relevant dumbasses. Btw there's more 2 this countries moral decline than little boo. If u don't like her, don't watch her but u probably do, you in the privacy of ur home watch this show but aint got the balls to admit it. The ratings r getting higher 4 a reason. The more u talk about her the more popular she becomes as a result whether its good or bad. Just like kim kardashian.
