This title says it all.

Why we dropped cable...

I actually had to Google "Honey Boo Boo". I'm sorry I did.

Okay i can fault TLC for running anything about Honey Boo Boo. I can not fault TLC for it being their #1 rated show. In fact if Sesame street ran at the same time on another channel, Boo Boo would get the major ratings.

The problem is the audience not the programming. BTW I detest everything Honey Boo Boo. Poor kid is ruined. Gonna make Danny Bonaduce look great by comparison.

By the show's 40th anniversary in 2009, it was ranked the fifteenth most popular children's show on television.[97]

re: #3 Daniel Ballard

The problem is also TLC catering to that audience.

re: #4 Sheeplord

Sadly, they are catering to that audience because it is evidently a very large audience. I remember when The Learning Channel actually had documentaries and stuff. But then, I'm old.

A bit of perspective.. Early in 2012 Democrats floated a proposal called the Buffet Rule, that anyone with over $1 million in income would pay 30% minimum tax.

John Boehner and Mitch McConnell went ballistic calling it a gimmick that wouldn't do anything meaningful to reduce the deficit. After all, the Buffet Rule would only raise $5 billion yearly, a pittance.

Now comes Mitt who wants to fix the budget by eliminating the $400 Million yearly subsidy to PBS. And the same GOP dolts lap it up.

A lot of people watch Honey Boo Boo because it is reassuring to see that other people out there are even fatter and stupider and more obnoxious than they themselves are.

Oh, and how could I forget? Coming on Oct 10, TLC will broadcast a special called "Half Ton Killer" about a 1000 pound mother who kills her daughter.

It's amazing how little time it's taken TLC to make "Sarah Palin's Alaska" look like Masterpiece Theater in comparison to their current line up.

It's OK as long as TLC makes money it must be good.
