  • Michael

    I wish Top Chef was more popular.

  • Q

    so is dirty jobs going to be cancel this season or what??

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Honey Boo Boo is comedy gold. If people don’t like the show, why watch it and why complain about it? Your thoughts wont do anything.

  • Nick

    @ Michael

    I love Top Chef as well but not this Masters version.

    Sad state of our society that Honey Boo Boo is the top watched show. Then again, if i had a choice of watching the Democrats or that than Boo Boo is my girl. Any chance of pre-empting Obama tonight on all networks with repeats of the Odd Couple?

  • Anthony

    Is that higher than normal for Ghost Hunters? I feel like it normally was around .4/.5 not .7 good for Syfy I guess.

  • Raz

    Looks like the little red neck beat out the big red neck. Sorry Bill you got outslicked by a Boo boo.

  • Jared

    Honey Boo Boo had my laughing so hard I was crying..that whole wig scene was pure genius.

  • Nadine

    @Michael
    I wish Top Chef was more popular.
    I was a big fan. But no Tom Colicchio — no audience. The only reason it used to do so well is because of Colicchio, so it’s not hard to figure out why.

    @Sara Bibel
    Why are you not deleting political remarks? Is it all right if we start arguing politics in this discussion of cable shows on Wednesday night? “Cause I gotta say, if it’s ok, that I thought Bill Clinton’s speech was so spectacularly good that all of us in my house stood up, cheered and danced around the living room. Finally a human being at a political convention, instead of a sicko whinebag who strapped his dog to the roof of car for a 1,000 trip.

    1. Because we never moderate comments except automatically for profanity, spam and occasionally manually for sock puppetry.
    2. Because it’s far too much effort.

    @Anthony

    Nope, Ghost Hunters received over 2 million viewers a few times earlier on in the season.

    I don’t particurally want to dig through data to back this point up but a 0.6-0.9 was pretty common earlier on in the season.

    You’re probably thinking of Ghost Hunters International, the not so popular edition of the show, which was getting a few 0.4s, 0.5s etc.

    Face Offs numbers for example were down from last season. But paired with Ghost Hunters these 2 shows alone were hitting incredible numbers.

  • Nick

    I don’t understand how CNN can kick ass in election coverage but completely fail in their daily programming.

  • Ricardo

    Honey Boo Boo is, by far, the funniest reality show i’ve ever seen in my life. Nathan (NR2012), i agree with you 100%. Pure Gold…

  • The End

    @Anthony

    Here you go, one example you can see.

    Face Off Season 2 Episode 1: 1.972 million 0.9 18-49
    Ghost Hunters Season 8 Episode 1: 2.029 million 0.8 18-49

  • Mark

    Oh good Lord people really? I guess ignorant redneck humor is a new thing. The destruction of the Country continues….

  • elliotness

    Honey boo boo. Sigh, Why people? Just why?

  • John A

    Wednesdays not the same without Dallas. Its started In Uk this week and got 3 million. In Ireland too and started with 460,000 which is great too. I wonder will it drop much abroad.

  • Rick

    Honey Boo Boo is a new reality low, it just shows taste is acquired.

  • Ram510

    The Soul Man was really good last night!

  • Won’t Some Please Think Of The Children?

    I guess 2.4 million red state hicks,child molesters,pedophiles and stalkers have found thier new poster child in an overweight,dirty(have you seen the bottom of her feet? Gross.)pageant queen wannabe who’ll probably end up dropping out of school and get pregnant at an early age. I pray she doesn’t give her kid a combination of Red Bull & Mountain Dew on a pacifier.(Again,gross.)

    Is this really how we want our kids to grow up? Shame on TLC for greenlighting this exploitative trash. And double shame on those watching it.
