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."
