(New York, NY) – She came, she conquered, and with her carefree, tight-knit family by her side, Honey Boo Boo introduced America to Georgia’s backyard version of the Olympics: the “Redneck Games.” The combined season premieres of TLC’s long-anticipated HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO delivered high ratings for the network on Wednesday night at 10/10:30 PM (ET/PT), garnering a 1.6 HH rating, a 1.7 W18-34 rating, a 1.6 W18-49 rating and a 1.4 W25-54 rating.


The premieres of TLC’s HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO ranked #1 among all ad-supported cable in its time period among W25-54/18-49/18-34 and #2 among HH, P2+ and P25-54/18-49/18-34.


HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO 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.


HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO returns Wednesday at 10 PM (ET/PT) with two all-new episodes.

    I could only watch this show for 10 minutes and even that was an effort. I will not stoop to ridiculing that family because TLC has done it for me. Please…no more.
