(CBS Local) During an exclusive interview with Nicole Alvarez, Tim McIlrath of Rise Against commented on reality show sensation Alana Thompson, better known as the pint-sized star of the wildly popular and controversial TLC series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. It's safe to say he's not a fan.
"It's the new lowest form of television," McIlrath said. "The most despicable celebration of a lack of intellectual ability. If we can look to that as something not to aspire to, maybe we can find something good out of it."
McIlrath's scathing observation came during the light-hearted interview, in which he also spoke on the Kardashian family ("I'm largely unaware of the Kardashians") and the Mayan calendar, which many believe signifies the end of the world on December 21 of this year. more on this story
