TLC'S 'HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO' SAYS GOODBYE TO GLITZY AND HELLO TO MORE VIEWERS

--Third week of HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO was a season high and watched by 2.3M P2+--

(New York, NY) – America's favorite family may have said goodbye to its beloved pet pig "Glitzy," but they welcomed new viewers. The week three premiere of TLC’s HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO delivered the highest ratings for the series on Wednesday night at 10 PM (ET/PT), garnering a 1.7 HH rating, a 2.3 W18-34 rating and a 2.0 W18-49 rating.

 

HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO was the #1 program in ad-supported cable on the night with all key women demos (W25-54/18-49/18-34) and #3 among P18-49/18-34. Additionally, HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO saw digital success with 13 trending topics on Twitter, nabbing the # 1 spot on Trendrr.tv’s top social chart.

 

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 a brand new episode.

    That is so sad :(

  • Jared

    I’d watch Honey Boo Boo over Kate Gosselin any day!

  • EatMorePez

    How about intelligent mothers who would never exploit their children for financial gain? How did it do in that female demo group?

  • Tyson

    Poorly, EatMorePez, which is why that show doesn’t air.

  • aok

    Who said they couldn’t redo Jon and Kate plus 8.

  • psychic

    That honestly scares the living crap out of me.

  • onehotchub

  • layla

    omg! i watched 1 show mainly because every site ive visited said it was highly ranked and 1 of the best shows blah blah. it is the stupidest show EVER. it outranks jersey shore as STUPID

  • Janice Chadola

    Why does anyone watch this disgusting show? These people are trash with a sickening kid who cannot enunciate properly. These people are an insult to decent rural Georgia residents. The child cannot help it. She is too young and is being exploited by her revolting family. These people and the show is the lowest of the low. Do not watch it. Get it off the air.

  • J.J

    This is not what’s America is all about .She’s so young and already a DIVA. Very bad example for young American.I will not watch the show .

  • J.J

    Like Layla said , it’s stupid , and pure exploitation by the parents .Poor judgement .

  • Beth

    You have to look past this family’s flaws and see them for what they
    are…a caring and happy family that doesn’t have much, but enjoys life
    anyways. When I first started to watch the show I thought I would be
    laughing AT them, but instead I have ended up laughing WITH them. What’s
    disgusting is the way America is responding to this family just because
    they don’t live exactly the same way they do. Bottom line is that this family is not evil or mean, they are not criminals, they are not hurting anyone…why all the hatred towards them? Learn to embrace your fellow neighbor instead of judging them…the world would be a MUCH better place.

  • Cindy Preston

    Honey Boo Boo, you and your family are the BEST show on TV! After a long night at work, I love to watch your show and laugh. You all are my kind of family! God bless you all.
