First it was her Go-Go Juice on "Toddlers & Tiaras" and now we're getting to know the entire Thompson family via "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" -- like a trainwreck we can't turn away. Does the show's popularity reflect changing American cultures?

Thanks! You're right -- it's just one show. But I think it's interesting how TLC (among other channels) has tried to differentiate their reality shows by "allowing" us into a variety of Americans' lives.
Thank you. I agree that these shows provide insight into our culture's value on successfully monetizing bodies/appearance. I wonder, though, if viewers are subsequently appreciating their own intellect while judging this family's.
