Thanks, TLC, for foisting the Honey Boo Boo clan on us
The world is a better place for the disaster that was Honey Boo Boo being off the air. The shame is what it took to get TLC to throw the show into the dumpster from whence it had sprung.
June Shannon, Mama June to fans of the show, and sorry for you if you self-identify there, made more news today revealing that convicted child sex offender Michael Anthony Ford is the father of two of her children.
Sadly, that’s not the reason that TLC canceled the TV show. TLC pulled the plug on Honey Boo Boo when photos surfaced online of Shannon with another convicted child sex offender, Mark McDaniel, who, it happens, is linked to the sexual abuse of another of Shannon’s daughters.
After that news broke, TLC, whose acronym once stood for The Learning Channel, dropped the show even though it had already put a season’s worth of new episodes in the can.
Think of the cross-promotional opportunities missed there.
