The ratings are in and it’s official: Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a smash hit! TLC’s Toddlers & Tiaras spin-off starring the beautimous and sassified six-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson hit the ground running with just over 2 million people tuning in to the series premiere on August 8, with very little drop off the next week. The success seems to have TLC scrambling as they are now back in McIntyre, Georgia (Honeyboobootropolis) hoping to add more episodes to the six originally announced back in May.
(And just in case you might have thought the show wouldn’t be able to sustain its viewership, the ratings for episode 5 last week were the highest yet, with 2.336 million viewers!)
The photos above were taken yesterday and show some of the TLC crew outside Alana’s abode. It appears as though the family is inside filming at the time.
On Honey Boo Boo’s unofficial official Facebook fan page (run by Alana’s mom June and a friend) they have been talking about filming this week for “Episode 11,” so I don’t know if that means TLC already has four more episodes ready to go or not. Either way, Alana and her family (and fans like us!) are really excited about the success of their show and the fact that they are filming again:
