All eyes and ears in America were on Bill Clinton last night as he addressed the DNC in nominiting Barack Obama as the Presidential nominee for the upcoming election.
That is except for those who were tuned in to the must-see reality TV show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.’
Honey Boo Boo pulled in 2.4 million viewers this week, according to Nielsen overnight ratings, the second highest rated episode of it’s 5 episode history.
The TLC series tied the CNN coverage of the Democratic National Convention, which included a speech from President Bill Clinton among the 18-49 age group on cable, and trailed only NBC’s NFL season opening game during the 10:00pm hour.
With all of the networks airing the DNC’s prime time hour, the former President’s speech clearly beat Honey Boo Boo overall, but it’s pretty impressive against the numbers for one of the top cable networks.
