On one hand, this is hilarious. On the other hand, it’s really, really terrible. I’m conflicted.
The fourth episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” TLC’s reality show about a self-proclaimed “redneck” family, drew more viewers in a key demographic Wednesday night than vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s speech at the Republican National Convention drew on Fox News, the nation’s biggest cable news network.
Among adults 18-49, the show pulled a 1.3 rating with 2.9 million viewers, according to Nielsen.
The half-hour series is a spinoff from TLC’s hit “Toddlers and Tiaras.”
Sure, the number of lies in Paul Ryan’s speech outnumbered the number of facts 100:1, but the good news is more people were watching Honey Boo Boo than him.
Maybe that’s not good news. I’m not sure.
