"Sarah Palin's Alaska" Ratings Plummet


It's feign surprise o'clock, everyone! Ready?

Oh my! Former Half-Gov Egoette McBadShow's ratings have taken a dive! Who could have predicted that?

Me, that's who. After the initial rubbernecking, this was bound to happen:

Sarah Palin's Alaska fell 40% on Sunday night to 3 million viewers.

Not many were in the key adult demo either. Only 885,000 viewers were ages 18-49, dropping 44% from last week.

In fact, the median age of the show is 57 -- that's 15 years older than TLC's average.

How's that not holdin' our interesty thing workin' for ya?

Unless you're really, really into Alaska, a die-hard Egoette fan, over 55, excruciatingly bored, or a glutton for punishment, there is no reason whatsoever to tune in to a self-serving family beating fish to a pulp for fun and profit.

Emphasis on profit.

    Sarah Palin may often be in error, but she is never in doubt. Even her core of rabid fans are drifting away because she is running out of variations for her one-trick pony shtick.

    Inevitably, the more exposure she gets, the more her ratings fall.

  • I'm amazed that anyone ever watched one of Palin's yawnathons. I would be snoozing after 30 seconds of Palin.

  • i'm really, really into alaska (been there, it's beautiful...saw a bald eagle catch a salmon out of the chilcat river, as well as a pod of beluga whales swimming upstream to the inlet by anchorage, just to name a few wonderous things, including icebergs calving in glacier bay)
    ...but i will never, ever, watch sarah palin on anything short of a funeral procession

  • Ain't nobody thinking about no Sarah!

    I haven't seen it, but now that I know it's a lot about nothing I WANT to see, I'm very happy to continue to ignore it.
