TLC is probably pretty pleased right now.
Following the network’s decision to order additional episodes (and “HOLLAday” specials) of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” Wednesday’s mid-season finale earned the series’ highest ratings yet.
A record 2.8 million people tuned in to watch Alana, the former "Toddlers & Tiaras" star, and her family on the reality show’s one-hour episode, according to TV by the Numbers.
“Honey Boo Boo,” which was the source of controversy even before it premiered, has averaged 2.4 million viewers since its August 8 premiere.
