Sneak Peek of the Week of August 19th, 2012

19 Aug

August 19, 2012

Love children? Then get ready to hate this kid. That’s Honey Boo Boo and I’ll introduce you to her this week. Be warned- you will want to throw your TV out the window after seeing her. Also this week, Allan Keyes dives into Google analytics, The Late Night Movie House of Crap will look at an old yet current TV commercial, and I’ll bring back an old favorite of the blog, I Found It On Ebay! This will feature the bizarre things you’d not expect to, but always do, find on eBay. All this, a Classic Repost and Saturday Comics, this week on Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride.

And yes those acceptance speeches are still coming…

    I’ve only seen her picture, & already I think I feel nausea & a headache coming on. Shirley Temple she ain’t. What demented sicko parents would stick their kid with a name like ” Honey Boo Boo ” ? Another reason not to watch TLC.

      I am very strongly leaning toward making that kid this week’s Imponderable.

        & why do these ” educational ” networks / channels suddenly have to put these ( mostly ) stupid reality shows on, anyway ? I know – To gain ratings & appeal to the Great Dumbing Down of America.

        One of the few reality shows I really ** liked ** was ” Oddities “. Then my cable provider stopped carrying Discovery Science. But that’s another story.

          I wish I had an answer.

            It’s all about ratings. If the Roman Empire had had TV broadcasts, they would’ve televised them just like WWE – except the injuries wouldn’t have been faked.

            At least I can get episodes / segments of episodes of genuinely GOOD tv ( History Channel, BBC America, Discovery Science, etc. ) on Hulu & Youtube & ignore things like ” Toddlers & Tiaras ” & ANYTHING about ” Honey Boo Boo “.

            Oh, & the kid looks like a mixture of Shirley Temple, Alfred E. Newman, & a Cabbage Patch doll if their molecules were scrambled together. I’m sorry, but I can’t see how this little rugrat won a child beauty contest.
