TLC orders "Honey Boo Boo" holiday specials
Honey Boo Boo will be taking over TV screens for the holidays.
The TLC network said Wednesday that it has ordered Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials focusing on its seven-year-old breakout star, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.
The series airs the 10th and final episode of its debut season on Wednesday.
The show centers around Thompson, her mother June Shannon and their rural Georgia family and has been a breakout hit for the cable network.
Thompson's outgoing personality and catchphrases like "A dolla makes me holla" made her a star, although some critics suggest the show mocks small-town Southern life.
TLC has also ordered additional episodes of the series to air next spring.
And so my boycott of TLC shall continue. They probably don't care, but I have standards.
Nothing says the holidays more then roadkill, farts, burps and snot.

I am looking forward go the specials. It will be nice to see a family who actually gets enjoyment out of each others company. I would rather watch a Honey Boo Christmas than one with some spoiled rich kids with no appreciation for the gifts received .
