Sarah Palin Beats Katie Couric In Morning Show Ratings Face Off

Catie couric loses to Sarah Palinin ratings game

Talk about a Game Change!

Sarah Palin must be busy preparing a victory speech to deliver on Fox News because the former vice presidential candidate's Monday appearance on the Today show garnered higher ratings than Katie Couric's guest hosting gig on Good Morning America.

Palin attracted 5.5 total million viewers to NBC, while her arch nemesis only drew 5.1 million to ABC. This must be a particularly sweet victory for Mama Grizzly because if you recall, it was Couric's 2008 interview that initially placed Palin's political and general knowledge under intense media scrutiny.

But let's be honest. If she couldn't name a single newspaper that was in circulation and based her entire foreign policy on Alaska's proximity to Russia, then ANY interviewer would have made her look bad, right?

In any case, the competition was a close one and sources suggest that Sarah Palin may not be solely responsible for the winning ratings. Not only does Today consistently out perform GMA, but Ryan Seacrest tweeted he would be making a major announcement on the NBC morning show the day Palin was scheduled.

Love it or hate it, Palin's appearance on Today and the attention it got from the media proves that this county is still captivated by her!

If these two ladies appeared on competing morning shows again, who would U choose to watch?

    Wow. It doesn't get much more humiliating than that, huh Katie? Americans sure love watching their trainwrecks.



  2. 2

    But if you subtract all the people who watched just to see if Palin would make an ass of herself, the numbers would be a whole lot different.



  3. 3

    I am sure most people only watched her to watch her fail. I saw like three minutes of it, and then decided to send NBC a nasty e-mail. I am sure even Matt Lauer felt ridiculous at asking her questions such as about what some of the losing candidates in the Republican race should do right now . . . She dropped out of office, but that isn't how she answered. I am sure those questions were given to her in advance, though how she answered was ludicrous, as she is a loser.

    Let's be fair about this Palin vs Couric. I think people tuned in to Palin to see the woman make a fool of herself not cause she is better. Everyone loves a train wreck. We all know the woman can't put a sentence together that makes any sense.

    The only reason Sarah Palin will ever be able to beat Katie Couric is because people love to tune into whatever program she is on and hear the sheer stupidity that leaves her mouth. Allowing us all the pleasure of making fun of her for it later.



  6. 6

    Everyone else said exactly what I was thinking. I'm gonna guess she learned her lines well since this doesn't have a link of her f-ing up.



  7. 7

    A bulldog or sheepdog would be better than that stuck up Katie Couric. Miss Bubbly Cheerleader is so not a news person. Never will be.



  8. 8

    Who has time to watch morning television??

    I watched both. I wanted to see Katie Couric (whom I used to like on Today) behave like a teenie bopper–the mask she has worn for years. Sarah Palin is certainly a lot smarter and more interesting than you, Perez–or your sycophantic commenters, here. Ankle biters.

    I'm not surprised. People need a good laugh every now and then and that idiot could definitely deliver. People probably tuned in to see what words she would make up.

    Love it…………I can,t stand that stupid Palin,,,,,,,,B..ch



  12. 12

    People watch Palin for the stupid things coming from her mouth (besides her retarded husband's wiener). She is a wet dream for all comedians!

    When are executives going to realize that Katie Couric is no longer popular?. Matt what's his name needs to go too..hes stodgy and boring. Bring in fresh blood.

    You could not resist the photo op.

    Good for Sarah its sad how the media has treated her nobody is perfect. From what I have heard and people that worked with Kattie she is a real douche to be around.



  17. 17

    I gave Couris about 10 minutes before switching channels. She's about as interesting as watching pudding thicken.



  18. 18

    Sarah is funny to watch, and even poked fun at herself. Couric is boring, unfortunately.

    You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing that I believe I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very huge for me. I'm having a look forward in your next publish, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Sarah Palin was awesome on Today. Haha to washed up Katie Couric. She sucked on the news, too.

    Wow! What hate we reserve for people who might have a different opinion than our own! I thought that we were going to set an example to our youth about bully's. And I think the President said we should practice civility. It seems that only applies to like minded views otherwise you are hated and treated like a vile being. Seems she is the one showing grace and courage and you are all being silly and petty.
