Well, here it is. The reality show about Alana "Honey Boo Boo," child pageant star. It premieres tomorrow night, 10 pm.

This poll needs a "WHAT. THE. FUCK?!" option...

This is an idea for battling the recession. You can just sell away your dignity in exchange for television fame.

Darn. A 404 error.

@2 You are assuming that these people had anything that could be called "dignity" to begin with. Given that they come from the kiddie pageant circuit, that is probably not the case.

@5: Old enough to bleed, old enough to breed. It's very simple.

In 2016 the HOTTEST TV show will be about a family that throws it shit and vomit at each other and speaks in grunts.

I hope they get paid a shit ton of money for this. That way they can take that money, buy a house or what ever, and never be heard from again.

Gah. Can't the FCC step in and at least require them to change their name to something that couldn't possibly be deemed educational? That's appalling.

The Leering Channel, perhaps?

what @10 said. There's little music on Music Television, the History Channel dedicates a good portion of its programming to things that never happened, and the Learning Channel contains as much learning as a box of juice drink does juice, unless of course your were hoping to learn "how terrible can something be?"

Were they all simultaneously squirting honey in their mouths?

I think thing the Learn’n Channel is trying to say, “Hey America, this is you!”

Don't be naïve or dishonest. TLC hasn't been "The Learning Channel" for quite a while. Most of the former "high brow" channels might have the same names but hardly do the same stuff they did. When NBC took over Bravo it went straight into the (reality) toilet. Same deal with TLC. At least when the Nashville Network ceased to be when they called the new network "Spike" it wasn't an allusion that it was something that it's not.

I'm not ok with this, or with anyone who would watch it.

Could this be worse than "Ice Truckers"? Or "Swamp People"? I certainly hope not.

The subtitles are a nice touch.

Marriage is holy, birth control is wrong, America if fat and stupid and now it's on TV. God bless America.

You're missing the "some people don't deserve to breed" option on your poll.

There's only so many hours in the day; how am I going to watch this AND "Hillbilly Hand Fishing" AND "Swamp Loggers"?
