sarah palin reality show loses steam

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

The second episode will not be breaking any records.

Ratings for the show dropped 40% to 3 million viewers.

In the 18-49 age range, there were only 885,000 viewers, which was a 44% drop from last week.

Innerestingly, the show's median age is 57, which is 15 years older than the average age for TLC shows!

Guess the older folks tolerate like Sarah Palin?

Perhaps the show's ratings went down because of competition from the American Music Awards or Sunday Night Football, but we're thinking maybe the initial curiosity that many viewers had wasn't enough to keep them around for episode #2!

Why do U think so many people bailed on Sarah Palin's reality show?

    Love these women who have a truck load of children (Angelina Jolie too), and manage to work non-stop. Is Sarah Palin ever home?



  2. 2

    Because she's a disgusting pig



  3. 3

    because it was just an extended political ad and everyone is sick of those.



  4. 4

    I doubt it's the programming that's on opposite of her "reality" program so much as the quality of her program. I saw a few clips and, quite frankly, I've had more interest in watching paint dry.



  5. 5

    I think most people were just checking it out, must of been boring as hell, and stopped watching it. It happens in reality television.



  6. 6

    White Nazi?



  7. 7

    They needed a quick laugh, they got it and they moved on.



  8. 8

    Many people turned in to the first episode out of curiosity.

    us old guys find sarah attractive and want to be there when she has a nipple slip :)



  10. 10

    Because she has the most irritating voice and accent and people just came to their senses

    I vote for a pig anytime, if the pig was running against OBAMA!!

    Re: Eyes Crying Purple Tears – Great comment. I think it wasn't an hour long political diatribe like most people thought (or maybe hoped) it would be. I think it is smart she chose not to do her show that way. I'm not her biggest fan, but she understands how to manipulate the media including the liberal media she's always ranting about. I really don't think that this reality show was a smart move. So maybe I overestimated her.

    Same reason nobody posts on this site, it's boring. I just come here for a glimpse of hot chicks. Certainly cant stand your dumb ass.



  15. 15

    Because they most likely found the Jersey Shore more informative.

    I am not a Sarah Palin fan, but I must admit that I watched the first episode because I LOVE Alaska. It was BORING! Who wants to watch Sarah make muffins. ZZzzz. They dragged out 30 minutes of interesting material into an hour. No thanks.

    Id watch her ANY day over some moronic housewives, queer designers, queer decorators, heroin addicts, hoarders, so fuck the haters bitches.

    Once you've visited the scene of a morbid car wreck, there's no point in revisiting.

    She should do a tasteful nude scene. Perhaps lovingly washing her tits in a stream.



  20. 20

    I really can't believe so many people watch so much reality tv. I watch HGTV sometimes, but one big Sarah Palin ad I could not do.



  21. 21

    I bet all the stupid tea party tea baggers are the only ones tuning in. I tuned in for her 1st episode and never again lol



  22. 22

    For a cable show that's still good ratings. The Joy Behar show can barely hit a million viewers and she's still on the air.



  23. 23

    I loathe this woman in every possible way. Haaaarrribbble. Nuff said.



  24. 24

    What spell does that wretched woman cast on people to get them to folow her? She is much too absurd to run this country. She's crude, deviousl and manipulative. Like Barbara Bush says I wish she'd stay in Alaska. She r

    I watched the first episode because I thought it would be funny. Aaaaaaaand how did I feel when it was over? Well, I almost didn't make it to the end. I was strong…. but OMIGAWD that show was painful to watch. How the hell did she get to where she is in life? She's so mind-numbingly fucking stupid it's a miracle (or a curse) that she remembers to breathe. The ONLY thing that could ever make me tune in to her show again would be watching her fall into a river of lava. Oh, and Dear Sarah: If you're disturbed by a neighbor who is writing a book about you (that may/may not be published, and even if it is maybe a dozen people will read it) perhaps you shouldn't do a fucking reality show. Reality check… you're a fucking moron!



  26. 26

    maybe she shouldnt be beating fish with clubs.. moron.



  27. 27

    also something is up with this site perez.. idiot.. all of a sudden it tells me to install plugins and then opens my vlc player.. u a moron 2 lol



  28. 28

    For someone who's purported to be so stupid, she gets a lot of air time and knows how to get the liberals worked-up into a crazed lather.



  29. 29

    Alright, since 3 million still isn't a lot? Gah perez, if you keep reporting stuff like this your loosing a fan.

    Re: Rubber Rat – Lol! Or a tastefully done flashback of her running down the basketball court in slowmo…



  32. 32

    Hallelujah!
    Hopefully there is only 5 minutes left of Sarah's 15 minutes of infamy!

    Re: @v@

    LOL!!

    Ppl had to see what it was about and now that they did why would anyone want to watch more. She is really a very stupid person. She trys to be intelligent but doesn't pull it off very well. She speaks like a hick from Hicksville. Gotcha, wontcha, dontcha. What the hell is that? Seems like both her girls are hot pants haddies so what is there to be interested in? Her husband is only allowed to say like 5 words per episode. Should we all just watch so we can be dumb downed like her entire family is?
