Good for TLC and good for her... I thought the show would draw a reasonable sized audience, but I wasn't expecting it to break any records.

Sarah Palin's documentary / travelogue / reality / biopic shattered TLC ratings records Sunday night.

The debut of Sarah Palin's Alaska delivered a whopping 5 million viewers.

The first episode of the eight-part series was the most-watched program launch in TLC's history.

It seems people would rather ridicule and discredit Sarah Palin and TLC instead of facing the facts. Good for Palin and TLC.

This terrible, terrible fact that she got good ratings on a reality show?

Uhhhh. Ok. I'm facing the fact. What's for dinner?

So Grim what did you learn on The Learning Channel?



TLC has the smurfs(Little people Big World), the Keebler elves(Little Chocolatiers), My Vagina is a clown car(Table for 12 and John and Kate plus 8),Hobbits in love(The Little Couple) A penis in my vagina is like throwing a toothpick or straight needle down the hallway(19 Kids and Counting),We breed like rabits(Kids By The Dozen) I am such a dumbass I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant( I did not know I was pregant),Stage whore moms who live vicariously through their children by making their children look like pedo-bait for prizes(Toddlers & Tiaras),Desperate political figure trying to prop herself up to give Obama his 2nd term(Sarah Palin's Alaska) and the lets let people who look like they are not interested in the opposite sex dress you(what not to wear). TLC is basically MTV. Like MTV, TLC has become infested with dumbass reality shows and other content not related to what the channel's name implies.

The only show I watch on there is What Not to Wear.. and I only watch it when NOTHING else is on. That channel sucks.. I never understand the John and Kate Plus 8 fad either. For a network called TLC, they really don't have many educational programs..

All these congrats to TLC and Palin make me chuckle though.. Bret Michael's Rock of Love was the highest rated show on VH1.. good for him and VH1 :lol: Or I Love New York.. that was the highest rated show hosted by a woman on VH1.. good for Tiffany Pollard/New York..

Congrats to Flava Flav and his awesome ratings too

(Of course I watched that trash to know the statistics).. :3oops:

Wow....those would be HUGE numbers on the CW network.

Those numbers are more than MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, HLN combined.

She got more than half as many viewers as Monday Night Football.

Pretty awesome for a conservative politician showing the wilds of her home state.

And scary for Libs.

Hint: we are not scared. Amused, yes, scared not so much.

I don't really watch TLC or Discovery anymore. They used to have educational stuff. Anyone remember the Operation show? Now it's all shows about engineering, fashion, home design, or other random (not) reality t.v. I wish they didn't sell out.

Not scary at all.....I LOVE seeing Palin in the limelight. She needs to stay strong and relevant all the way to 2012.

BTW....did MNF really get that low of ratings?....I thought it usually scored much higher ratings than that....but I haven't watched the NFL for the past two decades.

My socialist leaning friends above:

She's been a powerhouse in national politics in a short time, has more experience than Obama, has lived in the real world, has run businesses, been involved in local government and ran an important state. She could very well be the nominee. She has certainly helped shape national politics.

She has common sense, loves the country, and respects the Constitution and doesn't sprint away from her friends. Three things Obama doesn't possess, and one behavior trait Obama illustrated repeatedly.

She gives better speeches (knowing that's important to you Libs), and doesn't need idiot boards to deliver them. You think she would use them before a bunch of grade schoolers... LOL... had she done that, Tina Fey would have been so wet she'd have drowned herself.

Now a successful TV show. ROTFLOL...

We know why you're fixated on Palin, just as you're fixated on Rush.

FYI... MNF gt about 8 million plus in 2008 on avg.; the most recent stats I could find... wiki'd.

What facts?
The fact that the show made record ratings and is obviously very popular for TCL programming.

Your just bashing Palin and TLC because someone you don't like made record ratings on that TV station.
