I've recently found out about the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. I've watched a few clips of the show on Youtube. It's just like a car wreck: you can't pull your eyes away no matter the horror.

But then there's this, about the child's mother:

Quote:
June Shannon herself has been criticized for her daughter's diet . . . . She has also been praised by Mother Nature Network for the "keen business sense" with which she feeds her family on $80 a week by clipping copious coupons, playing Bingo, exploiting roadkill and acquiring child support checks from each of her four children’s fathers.


She's got four kids from four different men. How could four men ever get that drunk?!

Maybe they weren't drunks. Maybe they just had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fetishes:

You'd have to have a very deep grudge against your junk to want to have sex with that woman!

She get $20,000 per episode. Makes more than me in 12 months, in one episode! Her go-go-juice isn't very healthy though.

The best defense is never to turn those shows on. I've heard about honey boo boo - when watching Southpark. Never seen it, never will.

Regarding North America, the following convo from the 1986 film Aliens comes to mind:

Ripley: I say we take off and nuke the entire place from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
Hudson: Freakin' A!
Burke: Hold on a second. This place has a substantial dollar value attached to it.
Ripley: They can *bill* me!

http://www.businessinsider.com/history-of-tlc-from-learning-channel-to-honey-boo-boo-2012-11?op=1

& that Honey boo boo show is on TLC, the LEARNIN' Channel !!! Shocked , a channel originally started by NASA, way back when ...

THAT's a misnomer if there ever was one. & don't even get me started on the crap that the "History " Channel has been airing recently.

Anyway, I know the thread says "What's up with NORTH America? " but the fact that more people tuned in for Honey Boo Boo than a speech by 'what could have been' the next VP of the USA at the GOP convention gives SOME insight into where the US's priorities are.

What, you're not interested in the "history" of aliens?

They are from Georgia. That could explain a lot.

It gets even worse! One of the spawn has given birth and her child has a birth defect--namely being born with an extra thumb.

What else other than a birth defect could so perfectly drape itself around this recipe of cultural shame and voyeuristic sin that is encapsulated by the words "Honey Boo Boo"?

It's mostly women who watch those reality shows. A few years ago most of the daytime soap operas were canceled so this is how they get to see dramas on tv. The tv networks love reality shows because they are much cheaper than drama with real actors. But, if you look closely at the fine print there are writers for these shows, and that includes Survivor, The Great Race, and those awful K sisters. Writers = staged drama
