yeah, TLC is really taking advantage of them because they don't know better.
they could be quadrupling their earnings per episode, but these people are not demanding...
if they hired a lawyer or some kind of agent, they could easily pry TLC's purse open - they got massive ratings...
According to the latest Nielsen ratings, the TLC finale of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" was the highest rated show on cable television Wednesday night, beating out the premiere of "South Park" on Comedy Central.
It drew an audience of 2.8 million, its best yet, and according to The New York Times, made an impressive showing in the key demographic (those 18-49 years old) that advertisers love.
The show about 7-year-old beauty pageant competitor Alana Thompson and her family averaged 2.4 million viewers in its eight week run. It has often been the night's most-watched cable show or tied another program for that title.
In late August, it beat the cable coverage of the Wednesday night program at the Republican National Convention (Rep. Paul Ryan spoke) and the following week, it tied in the cable ratings with the Democratic National Convention (former President Bill Clinton spoke).
