NewsBusters: 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' Rumored to Get Second Season (Updated)

A larger audience than Bravo's "Housewives" or most other cable shows
Moonbat bloggers and other leftist media outlets have been trying to paint "Sarah Palin's Alaska" as a flop, but TLC seems to be delighted with the series' ratings. And it's rumored that network executives are discussing a possible second season with Governor Palin. NewsBusters Associate Editor Noel Sheppard writes:
The gossip website Popeater reported Tuesday:
"3.066 million people turned in last week to see her episode with Kate Gosselin," a TLC insider tells me. "That is more people than are watching Bravo's 'Housewives' series or most other cable shows. For sure the network is doing everything it possibly can to convince Sarah to do another season, but at the end of the day it looks like it will all come down to money."

As for Palin, who Popeater believes is currently making more than $250,000 per episode, "when the show debuted to over 4.96 million viewers, insiders tell me she started talking about a new deal right away."

Popeater believes Palin could be looking at a significant raise to as much as $1 million an episode.

Update: Palin aide Rebecca Mansour says Popeater is full of... pop:
Rule of thumb: anything "PopEater" reports about Sarah Palin is completely made up -- as in fabricated out of thin air.
Which makes sense because, as Allah phrases it:
But … doesn’t she have something else she’s supposed to do next year? Or is the plan to somehow squeeze the tapings in between primaries?

  1. If she does do a second season, that could be the unofficial answer that she won't be running for president in 2012. February 6th is the beginning of the one year count down to the Iowa Caucus.There wouldn't be any time to do both, and it could be seen as a negative if she tried, because it would appear that she isn't truly serious about running if she isn't going to put all her time into it.
