Thank God that not everyone who owns a television votes, am I right?!!?
Sarah Palin’s Alaska premiered last night and the show set record ratings for TLC.
The premiere of TLC’s Sarah Palin’s Alaska last night drew 5 million viewers to become the most watched series premiere ever on the cable network. The documentary series starring the former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate and executive produced by Mark Burnett also set a record for a TLC series debut in households with a 3.5 rating. Its 18-49 delivery was 1.6 million. Sarah Palin’s Alaska posted triple-digit rating gains vs. the network’s primetime average in the 9 PM slot, where it faced NBC’s Sunday Night Football, ABC’s Desperate Housewives and CBS’ Undercover Boss.
Are people just tuning in for the freak show, or does anyone actually give a shit about what Sarah Palin has to say about the great state of Alaska? How many people live in Alaska, BTW? Anywhere near 5 million? No, just about 700,000. So we can’t blame them. Shit.
Who watched this last night? SHOW YOUR FACE, PALIN SUPPORTERS.
