They may have three million viewers in the Us hanging on their every word, they may have been spoofed by such institutions as Saturday Night Live, and they may even have had their nation's leader President Obama referencing them in a pre-election speech, but Honey Boo and her clan have yet really to make their presence felt in the UK.
Honey Boo Boo is on her way...
That could be all about to change, with newly launched UK channel TLC investing heavily in the goings-on of the Thompson family from Georgia as part of its initial charge on the nation's consciousness. It's even made the Thompson family pig its channel mascot.
So, going in, what do we need to know?
1. How did this happen? Well, back in 2011, even amongst all the competitiveness, strangely vicarious and occasionally creepy business of mini beauty-pageants covered in reality show 'Toddlers and Tiaras', »

Football: Arsenal v Wigan Athletic
7pm, Sky Sports 1
If previous seasons are anything to go by, notorious relegation escapologists Wigan may still decamp from the Premier League dropzone, but with tonight's opponents being an Arsenal side chasing a Champions League berth, the odds are stacked against Roberto Martinez's men. Much the same was said last season when Wigan travelled to N5 to take on an Arsenal side still containing Robin van Persie, and walked away with a shock 2-1 win. Mark Jones

TLC's newest reality family love pageants, 'sketti' and each other. Here's a guide to the world of the Thompsons
The eponymous star of reality TV sensation Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Thanks to the show's wild popularity stateside, Alana Thompson has found herself as the world's most spectacularly famous finger-snapping, sass-talking, neck-snapping, unintelligible seven-year-old girl.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo revolves around Alana's determination to win a child beauty pageant. This is as creepy as it sounds.
More than any other reality series – more than Jersey Shore or anything starring the Kardashians – the show has come to signal the genuine collapse of civilisation for some reviewers. The Hollywood Reporter called it a "car crash", Variety called it "disturbingly condescending", and TV Guide said that it "lowered the TV bar to new depths". Some are appalled by the family's lifestyle. Others fret about the effect of »

The fact that this was written by black journalist is even more perplexing to me. Eric Deggans, TV and media critic, penned an op-ed for NPR titled On 'Hicksploitation' And Other White Stereotypes Seen On TV, in which he essentially laments what he sees as a double standard when it comes to TV shows that emphasize and exploit stereotypes of white people versus those that do the same of black people. In the piece, to argue his point, he cites shows like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Jersey Shore, Mob Wives and others, as examples of TV programming that exploit stereotypes of white people, and compares them to All My Babies' Mamas - the Oxygen network reality TV series that drew »

She's coming back ... "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" Season 2 has a return date for this summer -- Mama June and her brood will be back on our televisions starting on Wednesday, July 17 at 9pm on TLC.
Although the series has been seen throughout the year, thanks to a series of "Honey Boo Boo" holiday specials, this will mark the true return of the redneck-celebrating show. TLC promises "a candid look inside their unapologetically loud and unique lives in McIntyre, Ga." Activities set to be enjoyed by the clan include butter rolling, tap dancing and wrestling.
No, we don't know what butter rolling is either.
It's also likely that Season 2 will feature the wedding of "Mama June" Shannon to Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, the oft-laconic father of young Alana (aka, Honey Boo Boo Child). Cameras were reportedly on hand to record the event, so it will definitely pop up sooner or later. »
Dearly beloved, we are gathered today to celebrate the recommitment of Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson to June “Mama” Shannon, his shack ‘em up mate of almost nine years. This is — probably — not a wedding. This is a ceremony to celebrate the beauty of love, the brightness of orange, and the sanctity of camo.
The “groom” will now read his vows*, followed by the “bride.”
*vows are equal parts quotation and wishful thinking
I, Sugar Bear, take you, Mama. It was love at first sight. We been happy ever since. You do a lot fo’ me. We’ve had our good »

The most-coveted accessory this weekend? A hat, hands down. But in close second: a wet nap or some rawhide, depending on whether you were partying with Mama June or Kevin Spacey. 5. If the Hat Fits ... Dear Princess Beatrice, we've spent precisely two years and six days thinking about that fascinator you wore to the royal wedding. Good news: We think we're finally ready to move on from all that pretzel-like, bow-ish goodness, and we have Miranda Lambert to thank. The Southern belle-worthy hat she wore to Saturday's Kentucky Derby in a nod to tradition ruined our college baseball caps forever, »

The parents of 9-year-old pageant diva Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson have been in a long-term committed relationship, but People reports that today's ceremony -- in which the couple exchanged vows of some kind -- may not have been an official wedding.
According to the invitation obtained by TMZ -- which explicitly states the couple will "exchange marriage vows" -- the McIntyre, Georgia ceremony was a "taped event." Guests were warned not to record the ceremony themselves, but encouraged to dress in "full redneck attire."
Whether Mama June actually got hitched to Sugar Bear or not, look forward to the TV special coming soon (presumably) on TLC. And surely if it happens on reality TV, it can't be fake, right? »
