Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — The TLC net­work says it is can­celling Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, its colour­ful se­ries about a young beauty-pageant con­tes­tant and her fam­ily. TLC would not ex­plain why the se­ries was be­ing shelved. But this week TMZ re­ported that the girl’s mother, June Shan­non, was in a re­la­tion­ship with a man who was con­victed of child mo­lesta­tion. In a state­ment, TLC said that “sup­port­ing the health and wel­fare of th­ese re­mark­able chil­dren is our only pri­or­ity.” Film­ing had been com­pleted for a new sea­son of the se­ries that was set to be­gin air­ing be­fore the end of the year. The se­ries cre­ated an im­me­di­ate sen­sa­tion upon its de­but two years ago, but its rat­ings had quickly faded.
