'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' Specials Get Premiere Dates
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is heading back to the air. Prior to the premiere of its freshman season's back order, TLC has announced the dates for the holiday reality darling's holiday specials.
Airing Sundays at 9 p.m., Honey Boo Boo's first festive outing (Halloween) premieres Jan. 6. Thanksgiving follows the next weekend on Jan. 13, before a month lapse.
The series returns with a clip show of unseen footage on Feb. 10, before the Christmas outing airs on Feb. 17.
Concluding its first run on, Sept. 26, Honey Boo Boo still hasn't strayed far from the pop culture dialogue, with Alana and June Thompson making the rounds on multiple talk shows. Barbara Walters recently dubbed Alana one of her 'Most Fascinating' people of 2012.
The cable network's hit series stands as its second-most-watched launch of 2012 and TLC's third-most-watched series. Recent runs of Long Island Medium and Breaking Amish both outperformed Honey Boo Boo.
There is still no date for the series' official return.
