TLC orders series from 'Honey Boo Boo' producer

TLC has ordered eight episodes of a cheerleading special from the producers of this summer’s smash hit “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Cheer Perfection” will revolve around an Arkansas-based cheerleading champion coach named Alisha Dunlap training young girls, whose mothers of course are never far away.

“Toddlers & Tiaras” spinoff “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” scored a whopping 2.2 million viewers earlier in August and a 1.6 in the coveted 18-49 demographic. The show centers on a six-year-old Georgian named Honey Boo Boo and her colorful family. Honey Boo Boo was a pageant contestant featured in “Toddlers & Tiaras,” which follows very young pageant contestants and their always-sassy mothers. The program airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

A one-off special on the same subject collected 1.1 million viewers July 11.

Though critics and many viewers have been negative on docuseries like “Honey Boo Boo” and the like, the shows have continued to draw in ratings for TLC, which was once known as The Learning Channel and (yawn) featured mostly educational content. Now as simply TLC, the network has clearly gone in a different direction.

“Cheer Perfection,” which will be an hour long each episode, will debut in December on TLC.

Agreed. It's sad what The frickin' Learning Channel devolved into.
