Honey Boo Boo Beats RNC Ratings Well, by one measure at least By Matt Cantor, Newser User Posted Aug 31, 2012 9:07 AM CDT 104 comments Comments Honey Boo Boo.

Wednesday night's episode of TLC reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo pulled in almost 3 million viewers, scoring a 1.3 rating among viewers 18-49—more than any other cable show that evening in that demo, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Fox News came close with a 1.2 rating, but on the networks, Honey Boo Boo beat out ABC and CBS' combined RNC ratings and slipped just ahead of NBC. Combine all the networks, of course, and the RNC easily took the ratings crown.
