Could Sarah Palin Earn $1 Million Per Episode for Second Season of ‘Alaska’?

Dec 22, 2010  •  Post A Comment

TLC’s "Sarah Palin’s Alaska" has been successful enough that the network is trying to convince the former Alaska governor to sign up for a second season, reports Rob Shuter at the AOL-owned PopEater Naughty But Nice blog.

Writes Shuter: " ‘Sarah knows to strike when the iron is hot and started talking about season two right after the show debuted to huge numbers,’ a friend of Palin tells me. ‘She knows that celebrities get millions of dollar for each episode of their shows and thinks she’s worth it too. Jennifer Aniston took home millions from ‘Friends’ and in Sarah’s eyes, she’s no different.’ "

We will dispense with the "Palin is no Aniston’ line and continue with Shuter writing, "Now before we get carried away, Sarah must remember ‘Friends’ delivered way more than 4.96 [viewers] million a week. Still, she does have a point. One TV expert told me if Palin plays her cards right, it would not be impossible for her to get $1 million an episode for a second season."

  1. Give her anything she wants. If it keeps her out of politics, it’s worth it!

  2. As a conservative Republican please dont do anything to encourage her in any way, any shape or any form. She’s the poster child for everything that’s wrong with our country – do whatever you’ve got to do for self promotion – without the most basic qualifications to lead. She’s just another self filled PTA school board mom that get’s 50+ old white men going. Why are we promoting her at all? Please stop. My mom always said that the cream rises to the top.

  3. You make blogging look like a walk in the park! I’ve been trying to blog daily but I just cant find writing material.. you’re an inspiration to me and i’m sure many others!

  4. Hey how are you doing? I just wanted to stop by and say that it’s been a pleasure reading your blog. I have bookmarked your website so that I can come back & read more in the future as well. plz do keep up the quality writing

  5. What is Sarah Palin worth per episode? She is worth whatever someone is willing to pay. More power to her. Get it while you can.
    If anyone has seen the show, it is about her but it really isn’t very political. The show is mainly about Alaska, the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. I tuned in to her show expecting to be repulsed by her political agenda but I’ve been pleasantly surprised how little politics are mentioned. I may not agree with some of her political ideas but I sure love the place where she lives and would love to return. And if she has a second season, and the show still concentrates on showing us the wonderful things you can do and see in Alaska, I’d watch in a heartbeat.

  9. Neat blog layout! Very easy on the eyes.. i like the colors you picked out

  10. You want more banality? Palin will deliver. That’s all she’s got. Ignore her and she will dry up and go away. She was NOT a governor, or she would have remained and finished the job. She is the worst of what’s wrong with some in our country today…no substance, just more banality and ego tripping. You idiots who will pay her for more inane activity…are supporting a true waste period.
