It looks like we’ll be seeing a lot of Sarah in nature on her new Alaskan themed show. We miss the more amusing, and intelligent, ‘Housewives’ already!

It will be more about core values and less about bankrupt wives flipping tables on Sarah Palin‘s new reality show. An article in today’s LA Times quoted TLC president Eileen O’Neill who said, “We tend to be less snarky, edgy. There’s something for everyone here. We do shoot all around the country. Our topics and people tend to represent a lot of daily American lives.” Like the daily American life of TLC star Kate Gosselin, a woman who has 8 children, a pothead ex husband, and recently appeared on one of America’s top rated reality show? That daily American life?

As for what one can expect to see/openly mock from America’s favorite dunce on the new program, “She may be hauling nets with her husband, Todd, on his commercial salmon fishing boat on Bristol Bay, roughing it in a logging camp or spotting grizzly bears while camping on Kodiak Island,” a summary explained. The summary, sadly, failed to mention if there would be an episode where Sarah stood in her backyard and stared at Russia.

Now we are all for watching this guaranteed trainwreck, we just don’t understand why TLC is trying to separate themselves from Bravo and claim they offer more down home and approachable programming. There’s LA Ink, about human coloring book Kat Von D., the previously mentioned Kate Plus 8, and Cake Boss, which appears to be about a loud mouthed New Jersey family who run a bakery but we can’t be sure as we have no desire to watch. Can people really relate to these characters more than the Housewives? I think not.

The show is not doubt guaranteed to draw big numbers and provide Sarah with yet another way to search for some small piece of relevance. We can only assume this was a last ditch effort when Bravo refused to green light Real Housewives of Wasilla.
