'Honey Boo Boo' and Bill Clinton's DNC Speech Tie in TV Ratings
by Teagan Fardell
Yup. You read that right. I couldn't believe it myself! Wednesdays showing pulled in 2.4 million viewers, which was actually a 20% drop from the last week, but the episode still stands as the series' second highest audience. The most shocking news is that Honey Boo Boo tied CNN's coverage of the Democratic National Convention (according to the Hollywood Reporter)! This includes the speech from Bill Clinton. The Hollywood Reporter writes, "Aggregate coverage of the DNC clearly eclipsed Honey Boo Boo by all measurements, and DNC ratings reflect the entire 10 p.m. hour, with Honey Boo Boo only airing from 10 to 10:30 p.m"
