‘Honey Boo Boo’ Ratings Beat Republican National Convention

Honey Boo BooThe only thing harder to understand than Honey Boo Boo’s subtitled mother is this…

How is it that the TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo beat the Republican National Convention in the ratings this week? Although it is true that both shows contain a lot of nonsense.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the much-discussed (and apparently, watched) series — which follows seven-year-old Toddlers and Tiaras star Alana Thompson and her family (who let’s just say have “extremely sunburned” necks) — was the most watched show among adults 18-49.

Nielsen ratings reveal Honey Boo Boo’s fourth episode earned just less than 3 million views, and pulled in a 1.3 rating. The show that came in second? Fox News.

We heard there was talk of the pint-sized pageant girl’s pig, Glitzy, flying (the coop). But really? Really??!!

Before joining the Hollywood.com team, Lisa spent one year traveling the world in search of culture, and a country that wasn't Kardashian obsessed. FYI: none exist. But since she wasn't born a Hilton — and therefore needed multiple jobs to pay for the many airline miles — she wrote about her trip experiences and other celebrities for 'TV Guide,' 'InTouch,' 'OK!,' 'Redbook,' 'Marie Claire' and many others. Her last job was as a senior associate editor at EW.com, and she blames her love for reality TV and teen dramas on the little amount of sleep she gets thanks to her newest title, Mom.
