Sarah Palin's New Reality Show Will Be Nothing Like 'Housewives' According To TLC!

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.

Meh. I’d watch but there’s no way this’ll be the trainwreck we’re all hoping for. Palin is too much of a control freak to allow for anything resembling a “reality show”. More likely it’ll just be a bland Alaskan travelogue with Sarah narrating and getting most of the facts wrong.

The REAL fun will be seeing the “behind the scenes expose'” where the REAL Sarah Palin comes out in all her malicious diva glory.

I have to laugh though, TLC considers Palin “less snarky”? Have they heard any of her speeches? If they could find a way to convert snark into fuel, BP would be drilling Palin’s FACE!

The show will probably be a mix of dirty jobs/Planet Earth Alaskan style type of hybrid..

I don’t know why but I think shows like Housewives and TLC’s Kate PLus 8 are mindless shows…. I think Sarah’s show can actually add some culturally and regional aspect of the state that will be appealing to many.

You people are pathetic….Sarah’s show is not a political show and you just might learn something if you watch it. Plus I don’t hear nasty remarks about NBC shows who are always including politics in their dialogue like Law and Order for example. Personally, I think it’s sad that we even have so MANY CURRENT EVENTS that need bashing which is thanks to our current administration.

Sarah Palin ran for vice President, and now she will be on a reality show? People find her that interesting? OR will She be spewing her Teabagger crap? Is TLC owned by FOX news?
If she starts in going against who is in office [which she has the right to oppose anything] I just don’t think that a reality TV show should be a way for her to bash current issues and TLC when did you get into politics?
