God help us all.

Forget the economy, I'm convinced that reality TV will be be the nail in the coffin for America. This extended promo for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo proves it. I don't watch much reality TV, and by "much", I mean "as little as humanly possible." I have no idea who Honey Boo Boo is. From what I gather by watching this video, the show is a spin-off from another TLC reality show centered around the world of toddler beauty pageants (the name of which I don't know, nor do I want to look it up because I don't care to know).

Honey Boo Boo seems to basically be Jon & Kate Plus 8 minus four kids, and about half the IQ (which if my math is correct, puts it somewhere less than zero). Perhaps TLC should consider changing its name from "The Learning Channel" to "Trashy Little Crap-fest".
