August 8: "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo"
If you didn't know who "Honey Boo Boo" was in 2011, by late 2012 you likely did whether you wanted to or not. Seven-year-old star Alana Thompson and her reality TV show, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," has been a huge ratings winner since debuting in early August on TLC. The show features Thompson, first seen on TLC's "Toddlers & Tiaras," going to child beauty pageants, playing in the mud with her family and drinking what she calls "go-go-juice," a concoction of Red Bull and Mountain Dew.
