TLC's show, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" is off the air. The show had centered around young Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her "white trash" family, including mother (June Shannon), who had once been jailed for unpaid child support, and a convicted felon father. Now the show has been canceled, after photos have come to light indicating June Shannon has been dating a convicted child molester - the same man another daughter says molested her years ago. I can't bear television that creates celebrities out of lowlifes and wonder WHAT will it take for networks to STOP making these awful shows?

Kevin, I tend to think TV exec's scour the land looking for these kind of people. As if they want the worst in humanity to put on shows. I hope I'm wrong, though.
I think they can just go to the street outside the studio and watch and listen to people discussing what they want on their shows. Only when there are not these types of persons anymore, then they will wonder and have to look farther, and farther.
Kevin, if the world was as sweet and unpolluted as you, they'd definitely be hard put to find such persons :) You have a definite way of bringing sunshine into my day, and thanks for that.
Well there is nothing wrong with hope and faith is there?
Good going, sassypiehole, you made the right decision!
Alastar, I resent the stereotypical portrayal of Southerners as dumb, white trash. And I hope the little girl and her siblings get a chance to overcome the obstacles that have been put before them. No, I've not seen Hillbilly Blood. What's it about?
We're certainly in tune together on the HBB show. Hillbilly Blood I found on Netflix and is one reality show that has impressed me, Beth. It follows two friends and their families from Cold Mt ,NC who live as much as possible like their ancestors.
I'll try to find it, Alastar. Thanks for the heads up.
fpherj48, I once felt it was a matter of TV giving audiences what they "want", but with so many like you & me who refuse to watch this kind of garbage, it makes me truly wonder about the motives TV exec's have! You're right about the "adults", to
thomasczech, I think a lot of folks feel that way. And the worst part I think is that TV seem to want to limit the variety of what we watch. As if maybe they want to dumb down audiences.
