    No idea what channel it was on, but while lounging in a hottub on the balcony in the middle of a snowstorm a couple of years ago we watched some show about organizing your closets, like 10 episodes of it. I learned a TON of **** from that show. Now my closets are organized as ****.

    exactly. think about how much something like BBCs planet earth would have cost to make compared to here comes honey boo boo which is basically a camera crew following round a pack of tards. even if more people watched planet earth, it wouldnt be enough to justify the massive cost difference

    Can't all be blamed on "keeping the shareholders happy I'm afraid. Wherever there's TV programmes to be made, some **** is going to see it as an opportunity to pump shite into the brains of retards.

    I'm sure The Learning Channel once had great intentions - the BBC certainly did, but now our state broadcaster has a channel devoted to churning out shows like: Unsafe Sex in The City; Dog Borstal; Hotter Than My Daughter; Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank; and Sun, Sex and Suspicious Parents.

    All these shows sound way better than Honey Booboo.

    "Detachment" - one of the best movies I watched in recent years, by the director of American History X.

    You forgot Monkey Tennis.

    You can't really blame the BBC for being forced to chase viewing figures. Blame Rupert Murdoch and The Daily Mail.

    While reality shows tend to cost about half of a scripted show, don't think these people are working for free. If the show gets popular, their pay skyrockets. The honey boo boo folks are making $20k an episode. Some of the reality housewives or jersey shore people make 6 figures. Snooki makes several million per season.
