Was it the title that got you watching or the hot mess that came with it? Whatever it was, TLC scored some impressive ratings on Wednesday with the premiere of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, a Toddlers & Tiaras spinoff that follows the “unapologetically-outrageous family life of the Honey Boo Boo clan.”
The premiere ranked No. 1 among all ad-supported cable in its time period among women 25-54/18-49/18-34 and No. 2 among viewers (2.2 million) and persons 25-54/18-49/18-34.
The show follows Alana, aka Honey Boo Boo, who was a breakout star of Toddlers & Tiaras, as well as her stay-at-home mom June, her chalk-mining dad Sugar Bear, and her sisters 12-year-old Lauryn, 15-year-old Jessica, and 17-year-old pregnant Anna.
