New TLC Reality Show "Tipsy Tyler" Stars Alcoholic Child
TLC's latest reality television series, "Tipsy Tyler", garnered 2.5 million viewers for its debut last night.
Dedicated to taking an inside look at childhood alcohol abuse, the program chronicles the adventures of 6 year-old alcoholic Tyler Price of Douglas, Alabama.
Price, who is captured throughout the show consuming beer, whiskey and mouthwash, takes a trip to the emergency room in "Tipsy's" first episode after riding his bike into the side of a parked car.
"Whoops-a-daisy," he mutters his catchphrase before losing consciousness.
Price, who also smokes, later asks a nurse for a cigarette, then, when she refuses, calls the woman a bitch.
Critical reaction to the series has been mostly positive, with some characterizing such moments as Price losing control of his bowels during karate class or drinking from bottles of Mop and Glo in the aisles of Wal-Mart, "Must-see TV", and, "Outageous".
Remarked TLC Executive Programming Manager Pamela Steele: "Tipsy Tyler is not only incredibly engrossing and entertaining television, but also serves as an unprecedented analysis into what makes our children drink."
According to Tyler's mother Brandine, the answer to that question is relatively simple.
"He just likes it, that's all," she said.
