Is the show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” the end of civilization as we know it?

When I first heard about it, I had to watch. It’s like a bad accident on the highway…you know it could look bad; you know you shouldn’t look – but you do as you pass. The same thing goes for watching the Honey Boo Boo show.

Tonight is the debut of the new season. Hard to believe it was just a year ago this lovable family made their debut on the TLC channel. The producers must get the sense that their 15 minutes of fame are running out, because the debut features something called “watch and sniff”.

Special cards were distributed to viewers (did anyone get one?) and have 17 different smells on them. Apparently, when the appropriate scene happens, viewers can scratch and get a whiff of what our favorite TV family is experiencing. Great.

Full disclosure, I will be at the Mustangs game tonight, but I will be using the DVR to preserve the debut of the show.

After all, it’s hard to avoid looking at a traffic accident.
