Palin’s Ratings Head South

Nov 23, 2010  •  Post A Comment

With the curiosity factor gone, Sunday’s second episode of Sarah Palin’s TLC reality show, "Sarah Palin’s Alaska," lost almost half of the viewers who turned out for the show’s premiere a week earlier, according to Deadline.com.

The show was down 40%, from 5 million viewers to 3 million. Declines were even worse in two important demographics: adults 18-49 (down 45%) and adults 25-54 (down 46%).


  1. So the only ones left watching Palin’s show are the old farts who keep the numbers soaring for the whacko Fox News!

  2. You don’t think about this now, Richard, but if you live long enough, you too will be an old fart. You will have children or grandchildren that think you are an obsolete old fool. They will tolerate you because they don’t want to be cut out of your will. And, if you are smart, you will have learned Chinese (Mandarin is a little easier than Cantonese) as the Chinese will own our government. You probably won’t have Social Security as we know it today. And you will read comments, like the one you have written, and will feel sorry for the immature person that thinks they know everything. You will wonder how long it will be before that person finally realizes how stupid they have been. And you will hope they learn that lesson sooner, rather than later.

  3. Nicely done Skeptical Observer!

  4. Geez! Only 3 million viewers on a cable channel. Thank goodness all the other cable shows pull in tons more viewers or our television industry might be in trouble! But as Richard pointed out, it’s probably all “old farts”, and who would want them? As we all know, “old farts” have no ability to spend money or draw advertisers…just ask Fox News. Fox has hours go by every night without an add running because no one wants to advertise with them…uh right? Don’t forget “old farts” appeal to advertisers and can easily find the voting booth because they demonstrated this in the recent election. Maybe Sara is on to something here! Although if all she can do is 3 million viewers she’ll probably be replaced next week with something big like the Janeane Garofalo Show, Megan Wants a Millionaire, or The Chevy Chase Show.
