    Palin Reality Show Premiere Most-Watched in TLC History:

    Approximately 4.96 million people watched the Sunday-night premiere of TLC's "Sarah Palin's Alaska," the new reality-television show that chronicles the former Alaska governor and her family exploring their home state, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

    Palin's audience was the most-watched program debut in TLC history, according to early Nielsen Co. data provided by the Discovery Communications cable network. The episode nevertheless lagged far behind the most-watched shows on network television Sunday night.

    Around 20 million people watched the New England Patriots defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to NBC Sports. About 11.8 million watched "Desperate Housewives" on ABC, the network said.

    Produced by reality-show veteran Mark Burnett, "Sarah Palin's Alaska" depicts Palin in both domestic and wilderness settings. At home, she chastens her daughter Willow for attempting to bring a teenage boy upstairs. On a fishing expedition, Palin expresses awe at the sight of two bears fighting.

    "It was amazing to watch, this mama grizzly -- brown bear really -- protecting her cubs and saying, you know, nobody's going to mess with my cubs," she said.

    In recent years, TLC has carved out a niche with shows about large or unusual families, including "19 and Counting" and "Quints by Surprise."

    I tried to listen to her on election night coverage two weeks ago, and just couldn't do it. I found Geraldine Ferraro an easier listen, and from a conservative such as myself, that is saying something.

    I am sorry, but she is just so damn dense, you know the only reason she has a voice in the public debate is because she is pretty. If she was 200lbs there is a zero percent chance McCain would have picked her.

    As someone who is conservative, I should probably like her, but I can't stand listening to her talk or attempt to espouse on economic theory interspersed with quips about "hockey moms" and "mama grizzlies." She comes across as hollow and her thinking vapid. That being said, my wife and I recorded the show and watched it last night. It was actually pretty entertaining. First of all, most of the show is centered around them taking trips to various Alaskan locations--which are absolutely stunning. There cannot be a place more beautiful on earth. It's almost like a travel show with little bits of reality show shoved in for good measure. I will say that after watching it, although heavily edited, it helped raise my perception of her slightly. Not enough for me to ever vote for her, but slightly.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Yeah, so were these,

    "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

    "We're not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that's fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you're providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy."

    "On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong."

    All said by the anointed one, our illustrious President.

    She looks good. She does pretty well in a prepared speech. I liked her first big one at the big rally in 2008. I also think she is a good person and I like her optimism.

    But her off the cuff stuff is just a too simplistic and cutesy to make one think, "presidential." Its too late for this, but if she cultivated a more somber and serious tone back in 2008 with measured phrases people would interpret that as "intelligence" and "educated."

    It is how Obama in 2008 was able to ramble on for hours in generalities but never really define exactly what "hope" and "change" were all about. And yet all the pundits were so impressed with his so called wit.

    Man, I'm really going to be disappointed in 2012 if my choices are Obama vs. Palin, Gingrich, Romney, Huckabee, McCain (again? ug)...

    Muslim King? Really?

    I guess because of all the mosques he goes to?

    Like most professional politicians, he is just Christian enough to appease one side of the isle, but not too religious so as not to piss off the other side of the isle.

    Yes, you hate Obama. That's been noted a few times. Not sure what he has to do with this thread, but thank you.

    Muslim King, of course not. It was just a bit of spiteful sarcasm. The media and celebrities do it all the time.
