Wednesday's TV ratings for TLC's blockbuster hit reality series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo trumped Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention. The numbers aren't in yet for President Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night -- which went head-to-head with the MTV Video Music Awards. So we don't know if MTV defeated the pesident in the ratings race.
'Honey Boo Boo' pulled in 2.4 million viewers on Wednesday, and despite a 20% drop in ratings from the previous week, the precocious 6-year-old still tied with Clinton in the TV ratings.
It will be interesting to see how President Obama's numbers match up with the MTV VMA's, which aired live Thursday night during the DNC live telecast. Even if he is trumped by Rihanna, Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus -- Mr. Obama can take solace in the fact that 'Honey Boo Boo' beat all broadcasts of last week's Republican National Convention -- including Mitt Romney's speech.
