  • Walker

    Must’ve been a real treat for that lady.

  • Jared

    Why hasn’t TLC renewed this series yet?..obviously its a huge hit for the network and has America talking.

  • Herb Finn

    TLC – the new home for White Trash!

    Could be worse, they could bring back Kate :)


    Ew. People watch this show so they feel better about themselves.

  • Observer

    So very, very doomed.

  • SJ

    Bunch of inbred hicks…

  • Jason_Ca

    Idiocracy is on its way.

  • Sheila

    honey boo boo acts like a spoiled slut in a childs body there goes her childhood somebody needs to claim responsibility for this mess the whole situation is a travesty shes selling more than lemonade she is selling herself and her mom is her pimp!

  • TimsDale4ever

    This is one reality show I autually like because it LACKS the cursing and fighting and b!tching that you see in all the others. This family actually LOVE each other (totally new concept for TV) and because they have very little money it’s interesting to see how they live their lives and fill up their days. I know they are somewhat odd to look at, but they really are a very sweet group of people. Thumbs up!!!

  • Ann

    I know I’m going to regret asking this, but what is a “Sketti?”

  • Observer

    @Ann, just a guess since I haven’t seen the show, but toddler speak for spaghetti?

  • Sheila

    arent there child sex trafficking laws to protect kids from there moms making there daughters dress n put on makeup like a prostitute would n learn how to sell themselves in any form love in the house or not this is extremely sick n digusting let your child look n act like one take that makeupoff her face n stop selling your daughter dont u people know that there are child sex predators out there that are staring at her pics .

  • DonMedia

    I predict this family will be back on welfare within 2 months after the show ends. From what’s been in “Hollywood Reporter”, they’re only making between $2,000 and $4,000 per show. It sure doesn’t take much for some people to embarrass themselves on national television.

    The family has a working dad, mom uses coupons to help out. Seems as if some people are jealous because TLC didn’t make a show around their lives. The deal is, Honey Boo Boo’s family supports her dreams. Can anyone just be happy for people anymore?

  • Ellen

    People complain about anything! If it’s not the perfect wholesome family people are going to complain, even then people will complain about how boring a show like that will be. Let’s not act like all of you are perfect!

  • dave wrinkle

    I love it! I heard the numbers beat both the DNC and RNC convention.
    Yes, it is pitiful and hilarious in a red neck way, but for those of us
    in the south, we are all not far from the Honey Boo Boo Tree…if we ever attend a Family Reunion. Its wholesome and about 1/3rd of America lives like
    this….so you New York and LA people will never understand those of us in
    Flyover country. but we vote…we buy, we work..we belong! to the Same country you do.
