Here is the story from (the shameful and repulsive) TLC – a network once called The Learning Channel but prides themselves as pure, unadulterated American garbage television. And many are going to watch it and many will follow it and many will enjoy it because it’s all we seem to know anymore.
I thank God for my subscriptions Hulu+, NetFlix and Amazon because I get the quality programs I was raised around, and classics from before my time that seem to have more quality viewing in the first 5 minutes as opposed to an entire season of TLC, TruTV and the such.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo! Premieres August 8 @ 10|9c
TLC first introduced viewers to TODDLERS & TIARAS star Alana, aka “ Honey Boo Boo” in January, where her amusing personality and self-confidence won over viewers and her self-proclaimed nickname became a fixture in pop culture. The network has now picked up the new series HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO, an inside look into Alana’s world where the six-year-old pageant sensation proves that she is more than a beauty queen. When she’s not chasing after crowns, Alana’s with her family in rural Georgia doing what her family does best: four-wheeling through mud pits and picking up road kill for the family cookout. Premieres August 8 @ 10|9c
Each episode follows Alana and her family: stay-at-home mom June, chalk-mining dad Sugar Bear, and sisters 12-year-old Lauryn “Pumpkin”, 15-year-old Jessica “Chubbs”, and 17-year-old pregnant Anna “Chickadee”. From family outings to loud and crazy family get-togethers, HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO takes us off the pageant stage and into the unapologetically outrageous family life of the Honey Boo Boo clan.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Sorry for the political rant, but to a great degree, it was warranted. We all, generally, are amazed and shocked beyond belief that we, as Americans, have stooped so low and the internet buzz about the show is 50/50. However, those that are ‘excited’ about the show, are WAY too excited. And those that oppose of the show, REALLY oppose this.
