The Reviews are in for TLC’s ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’… What Do You Think? [POLL]
The surprising breakout star from Toddlers & Tiaras six-year-old Alana “Honey Boo-Boo Child” Thompson’s new show premiered last night on TLC.I haven’t built myself up enough to watch “Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo yet, but from the promos I’ve watched it seems like TLC should change its name to ULC; “The “Unlearning Channel.”
Brian Lowery of Variety called out not only the show, but general type programming that TLC is focusing on, “One suspects historians will not look fondly on a period that saw children thrust into the media glare in this fashion, but TLC can derive some comfort from knowing its programming continues a long tradition of carnival barkers and sideshow attractions, albeit calibrated to a YouTube-friendly digital age.”
Oh and of course the Twittersphere had to chime in about the show.

But not everybody was hating on the new show. In fact country star Miranda Lambert was super excited to watch the show.
