  • Wes

    Pretty sad when you have to use subtitles for white, american-born people.

    I don’t believe in god, but I’m praying for a rock to come and wipe us out.

  • bill

    I’m embarrassed and worried about the future of, well everything if this is the number one program.

  • neatcheat

    well, something should have replaced jersey shore..

  • DonMedia

    At some point, there is going to be a “hillbilly” purge to surpass the 1971 CBS purge in which as the late Pat Buttram who played Mr. Haney on observed the network “killed everything with a tree in it”.

    It can’t come soon enough.

    And yet more proof that Darwin had it backwards.

    I am so lost – what was the big reveal? Forklift foot? I guess I’m not trashy enough to understand all of this…

  • gammyM

    I’m from Georgia. I do not watch this show. It’s to embarrassing to have them represent our state. I can only guess that people watch it because it’s like watching a train wreck and you can’t help yourself. Much like watching the Jersey shore.
    So very sad.

    Anna’s daughter was born with an extra thumb, bless her heart. I have not heard about any surgery to remove the extra digit. It looks like it would be a simple surgery as reconstruction surgery goes. Grandmother ‘June Bug’, should know first hand how hard it is to face deformaties, she refuses to go without socks she is so ashamed of her ‘fork lift foot’. Please tell me that “it is what it is” doesn’t mean they are NOT going to look into surgery. Getting higher ratings so that people can tune in to see her hand is not fair to this child. Please tell us what the plans are for this in the future. wouldn’t Anna have the final say?. Don’t let this child grow up a sideshow for ratings. Love to this Family!

    An extra thumb might be handy in the future for palming a basketball or giving 2 thumbs up, etc. I would opt for no surgery. Is it up for voting?
