There's only one real way to tell which party's convention was the bigger success: Stack it up against Honey Boo Boo. By that measure, at least, Democrats come out victorious. Bill Clinton's speech to the convention tied TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in ratings, while the tiara-clad six-year-old beat out the Republican National Convention last week. This week, she managed a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49, the same figure as CNN's convention coverage. It was the first time since the show debuted that viewership actually dropped, though 2.4 million still watched, according to the Hollywood Reporter. (More Honey Boo Boo stories.)
