Who the Frack watches Honey Boo Boo ?

Look the first series i could imagine there being a morbid curiosity factor but now into series 4 ! who exactly is watching this kind of show ?

You know how we look back in history and are disgusted by things like slavery and Hitler

Well in 20 or 50 years time when people are watching their mind controlled holographic TVs, people are going to look back in history and think what the hell were these people thinking back then watching Honey Boo Boo

The same people watching, and believing in, garbage tv like the bachelor. Then again I am bias since I was stood up by a girl that has been on it twice now. They somehow manage to find the fakest people in the world for these types of junk tv.

Most reality shows have some redeeming factors. E.g. the Bachelor interested the romantics and the singles


But Honey Boo Boo, cmon

Crazy you posted this thread. Not ten minutes ago I saw the first five minutes I've ever seen of this show...

...and it was amazing.

What's really sad is that the season 1 DVD set has a 4.5 rating on Amazon.

In the future when we are all attached by our cerebral cortex as one whole collective to a mind controlled holgraphic projector watching Honey Boo Boo the once and future Queen address the nation, probably won't have much of any want to look back into history.

My wife watches all of these shows, Honey Boo Boo, Breaking Amish, Pitbulls and Paroles, Bachelorette, Survivor, etc. She has a Ivy League masters degree in Artificial Intelligence ironically. I can't be in the same room as these shows, it's so completely fake.

I guess she feels she has to dumb herself down.

Survivor is nothing like the other shows you mentioned.

One guy who is working to become a doctor watched Jersey Shore and it is the people you least expect that watch these shows.

Re: Who the Frack watches Honey Boo Boo ?

I rank that show right up there with Toddlers & Tiaras, fucking bullshit garbage TV. I think the only requirement to watch shit like that is that you have a brain full of mush, and like tommyp007 alluded to: No dignity or self-respect.

I think I enjoyed the first couple of seasons of Survivor. Now, it is unwatchable, every single episode is just one contestant lying in the face of another contestant with this "I'll vote for you if you'll vote for me". I'm not a fan at all. But I understand your point.

Just remember, there will always be a new batch of adolescent frat boys who are endlessly amused by people they see as inferior.

Yep, just like there will always be a batch of snobs who judge people's intelligence by what they watch on tv.

Lawyers, physicians, museum curators. Generally people of wealth and taste.

I don't watch Honey Boo Boo... but not every show has to be some deep, engrossing tale that enlightens mankind. Sometimes people like to shut their brains off for a few hours.

Re: Who the Frack watches Honey Boo Boo ?

I've never seen an episode, but I did see Honey Boo Boo and her mother on Fallon recently. Fallon is one of those guys that always tries to make his guests look good, but despite his efforts she still came off as an insufferable, obnoxious little brat. I can't imagine what a dreadful teenager she is going to be.

Re: Who the Frack watches Honey Boo Boo ?

The same people responsible for just about an entire channel dedicated to the vapid Kardashian family with the 8 or so shows, I think, that they are airing.

I can't stand reality TV, for the most part, as there is no redeeming quality to it. I will admit that I watch cooking reality shows.. but those are more like competitions and at least have some goal to them and you get to see interesting food made. I also watch The Amazing Race because I like seeing all the different countries that they go to. Plus, its not a popularity contest and the winning team is the team that actually worked to get that win.

Unfortunately my fiancee watches Honey Boo Boo, but I just leave the room or play around on my iPad when she does. I can't stand the show, but she laps it up.

It's not that I can't shut off my brain, but I can't shut off my gag reflex...
