Honey Boo Boo (Child), also known as Alana Thompson, the “Toddlers & Tiaras” star who has horrified and/or charmed anyone who has ever seen her, returns tonight on TLC's “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Let the debates begin! TLC has already been vilified for this -- and you don't have to scratch deep on the Web to find the vilifications -- but this will also be one of the most viewed reality series of the summer. May as well gird yourself for the high dudgeon and noise right now.
Let's go to “The Young Turks” right now: Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur yesterday did what seems to me a reasonable job of covering the issues (such as they are).
