Sarah Palin's Reality Show Gets Record Ratings

| Filed under: TV NewsSarah PalinReality TV



Looks like Sarah Palin found her niche: Reality Television.

The premiere of Sarah Palin's Alaska drew 5 million viewers, which is the most watched series premiere in TLC's history.

The show is scheduled for an eight-episode run, but after last night's ratings, we're sure TLC is more than ready to pick up a second season.

The show was up against NBC's Sunday Night Football, ABC's Desperate Housewives and CBS' Undercover Boss.

So, did U watch ?

    I don't watch reality tv. It is so far from 'reality', and most of the so called 'stars' are talentless, idiots. Sarah Palin fits in perfectly - reality tv is definitely where she belongs. I put her on the same intellectual level as Snooki.

  2. 2

    Further proof of the decline of America!

  3. 3

    Yeah for the first show maybe. I'm sure most people turned in to confirm to themselves what a violent, braindead, redneck idiot she really is and then will bow out. Love the previews, her forcing her daughter to shoot a shotgun at something (probably a harmless animal), and her shoving her younger daughters face into a cake. Classy.

  4. 4

    hell no

  5. 5

    Yes and it was interesting.

  6. 6

    People like watching Alaska type shows and it got GREAT PUBLICITY due to haters like you and all the liberals out there. Expect a 'thank you' from Sarah any day now.

  7. 7

    Go Sarah!! Great job!

  8. 8

    You betcha. I'm going to own the world you bunch of stupid sheep.

  9. 9

    nah, i hate reality shows. Why are you surprised that people watched it? They watch all kinds of trashy, stupid shit… like "ice road truckers" and "repo" and "keeping up with the kardashians."

    I work in TV and they do post-production on this piece of doggy-do in LA. They had to BEG people to work on it!!! HAHAHA!!! I wouldn't watch this STUPID BITCH show if you paid me!!! Sarah Palin is a FREAKING MORON!!!!

  11. 11

    I watched and ALASKA is a ga-ga-gorgeous state. It is now on my bucket list of places to go.

  12. 12

    LOL….isn't this exactly what this lady wanted all along, fame and fortune? And some of you will be stupid enough to vote for her if she runs for president in 2012!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! She doesn't give a rat's ass about anyone but herself!!!!!!! And I'm a Republican!!!!!!

  13. 13

    I've been to Alaska twice and can't wait to go back. I watched because it is my absolute favorite place and she makes me want to watch more. While she wouldn't be my choice for a President, she did make for interesting tv. At least she didn't make whale calls like Kate last weekend when they were in Alaska!

  14. 14

    The same teabaggers that watch her are he same right wing nuts that vote for her nit- wit daughter on DWTS……

  15. 15

    i got bored towards the end and changed the channel. she's dumb.

  16. 16

    Yeah, I completely lost faith in humanity. This country is garbage. The government is garbage. The people are garbage. I hope this country burns. I was hoping that this bimbo's show would tank hard. But shockingly it didn't. Even if people are tuning in to see this woman make an ass out of herself and to diss her afterwards it still won't do crap. By watching the show you're supporting her. You're making a legally declared retard rich and famous. Oi, Moving to Europe.

  17. 17

    Wow, all the old white folks really delivered for her.

  18. 18

    I watched the replay in Comcast in demand and it was qute entertating. Being a Democrat, I'm not really a Palin fan politically but the show is a more of a docu-drama about Alaska than a reality show. If you like the nature shows in the Discovery Channel you may like this. I googled how much she makes per episode and this should make the Palin haters sick…. she rakes in $1.2 million per episode compared to Snooki's $10k per episode in the Jersey Shore. I don't think she would trade her salary of over $14 million a year to a President's yeary salary of $450k. In addition if Fox news is paying Juan Williams $2 million a year,,,Sarah has reportedly been raking $12 million in the last nine months. With her book deals and speaking engagements of $75k to $100k a pop…who would want to be President. People may want to call her dumb or stupid but she is laughing all the way to the bank…(LOL)

  19. 19

    Fuck this bitch!

  20. 20

    As entertainment….sure, why not tune in and see what a mess she is…..but as a government official……never want to see her there.

  21. 21

    Alaska is a fucking gorgeous state. Now if they could manage to remove that Wasilla Hillybilly Palin trash, it would be even more beautiful without that blight.

    Gawd, McCain should never be forgiven for inflicting that bunch of rubes, tards and hicks on the lower 48.

  22. 22

    I defiantly watched!!! It was a great show!!! & She's funny!

  23. 23

    Re: rosebud99 – You took the words right out of my mouth. This is exactly how I put it: Palin's IQ

  24. 24

    If my mother ever shoved my face into my own birthday cake I would need therapy. What a bunch of rednecks. Would Americans really vote someone like this in as President? I will say no, that they surely have more brains than that.

  25. 25

    Yes and I loved it.Hope she runs in 2012.Anything would be better than what what we currently have. Go Sarah!!!!!

  26. 26

    Complain to Discovery about this show!
    It could have been a great show about Alaska but they ruined by using that idiot Palin and her stupid family. It turned into a huge commercial for Palin for President.
    Sure anybody will watch a train wreck!
    One good thing it shows people why they should not vote or support Palin.
    She is only out to make a s much money as she can. That is what she is really about!
    I hope John McCain rots in hell for plucking her out of obscurity in Alaska and foisting her on the rest of the country.
    If McCain had left Palin alone she would have been thrown out of office for corruption and we would never have had to see her ever. Now we can not get rid of her! As long as she makes a profit and sees herself everywhere she will stick around.

  27. 27

    to many commercials, and that voice, my god drink some drano will ya, but id do her in a heartbeat

  28. 28

    She has lost pretty much all her political credibility by hoping on the reality show bandwagon…I could care less what the premise of the show is bottom line. So stupid…

  29. 29

    Re: NookiesWA – Then frickin move already!!!! YOU are not what this country is about. We don't want or need your negative and hating attitude. Need a plane ticket????

  30. 30

    She's perfect for reality tv because EVERYONE LOVES TO WATCH A TRAINWRECK!

  31. 31

    Yes, but only because I was hoping she would collapse through a glacier or fall off a mountain and break her neck or something… no such luck. Im fine with her doing reality tv, good, great, as long as she stays away from politics we will all be a lot better off!

  32. 32

    i just want to pull off her glasses and step on them. oh, that would be such a delight

  33. 33

    Re: NookiesWA – there is only one trouble with moving to europe - their politics stink even more than ours do!!!!! in fact, politics stink everywhere. the fact that we have to endure palin is a pretty nasty punishment - but man, i thought europe would be better. it's not.

  34. 34

    She is the only living brain donor. That's why people watch.

  35. 35

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the show is actually really a neat show- I learned so much about Alaska! If you like nature shows, then you'd probably like it. Got to see Grisly Bears fight, and get an inside look at rock/mountain climbing. I liked it.

  36. 36

    She is one of the only people around willing to stand up to the liberal haters. …..Sorry folks, but government give away programs do not make individuals or a countries great.

  37. 37

    I am a liberal and I use to hate Sarah Palin with all my heart until I watched her reality show yesturday! Her show made her seem more normal and more human. I still don't agree with her politically but I like her as a person

  38. 38

    Re: jezzie14 – Wow! Morons like you shouldnt be able to vote! You are the reason why we might become a third world country in the future

  39. 39

    VOTE for KYLE on DWTS! Bristol can dance good for someone like her. But against the other competitors, she's horrible. If it wasn't for her dance partner doing most of the work, she'll look horrible.

    So what if she doesn't have performance experience?! It is called Dancing with the STARS! Not dancing with the child of a Star.

  40. 40

    Re: Mushu Baby – Totally agree with you!!! Just what I was saying earlier to my friends and I'm liberal as well.

  41. 41

    "Jersey Shore" also gets great ratings. These aren't good ratings like "30 Rock" good, it's like "Jersey Shore" good.

  42. 42

    I hope her plane crashes and a wolf eats her retarded face.

  43. 43

    5 million idiots.. more reason America is in the crapper..

  44. 44

    Re: Mushu Baby – omfg you took the words out of my mouth.. people like that are dumbass's.. geez this country is getting really fucked by idiots like that..

  45. 45

    Am impressed THAT many rednecks watch TLC. Can you get that with RABBIT EARS and a pabst blue ribbon can? What will Nascar do now?

  46. 46

    Sarah Palin always kind of looks horny.

  47. 47

    I'm sure you're really bummed that Sarah got high viewership for her show, Mario!

  48. 48

    Alaska is beautiful, of course, but I just don't understand why a large segment of the population are so infatuated with Palin. She's cute but there isn't much depth there at all. I don't hate her the way brain falling out libsmacks do, but I try to be realistic about her. I'm just not impressed.

    I hope this bitch will dissapear soon!I hate this brainless ignorant opportunist.

  50. 50

    So from the vice-presidential candidate she moves on to become the town clown. Why am I not surprised.

  51. $onia says – reply to this


    What did people find "entertaining" about this show anyway? Her kids looked uncomfortable, and not just because a camera crew was around. This woman pretends to be a "hands-on mother," and yet while baking cupcakes with her kids, her daughter asks, "What's a quarter teaspoon?" If she ever baked once with them before the show, her daughter would at least know this. None of the kids listen to her, they ignore her authority in the home, and call her "Sarah" - not to get attention (as Palin states), but to show their dislike of having to put on an act of some kind of perfect family in front of the cameras. The younger daughter does a good job of showing her complete disgust with the entire project by repeatedly being disobedient and misbehaving. What I got out of this show was the image that her kids spend a lot of time to themselves, and mom spends the day on the computer or the phone - or just away. When the opportunity arises for a camera crew to arrive, mom puts on a show and expects the kids to follow along - and they clearly resent it. This woman, and all that she claims about herself, is a total farse.

  52. 52

    Smart woman but like Obama doesn't belong in the White House!!

  53. 53

    LOL~ you mean she's on cable and she can beats CONAN'S RATINGS!!! LOL!!! LOVE IT!

    Guess you can't blame cable anymore.

    I was watching football though.

  54. 54

    All the haters~ gotta love them.

    I'm sure sarah does~ this lady is by far not dumb~ ummm how much is she getting paid~ she's a f'in genious. Haters wish she was stupid! LOL

  55. 55

    Proves there are 5 million idiots in this country!!!!!

  56. 56

    Re: big_momma – *sigh* she's not getting paid because she is smart.. she's getting paid because dumbass's like you are amazed with her image..and want to see more of her.. so now people are putting her everywhere to cash in on her "fame" too to get a buck.. because they know idiots like you will watch and give them more money..

  57. 57

    Hmph i guess the rest of the 305,000,000 Americans didn't tune in to watch baffonery
    I don't understand how 5million anything in America is record high when they doesn't even make up a quarter of our population
    She got the idiots who watch jersey shore or faux news
    Crack and jerry springer was also popular in this country at one point
    Go figure

  58. 58

    I just fervently hope all the viewers were just curious, and not actual fans of hers.

  59. 59

    First it was Jersey Shore, now it's this. Hello intellectual America!
