Sarah Palin's Alaska: Renewed For Season 2?

by at . Comments

Is TLC already hankering for a second dose of Sarah Palin's Alaska?

For the network, strong ratings - supplemented by the buzz created by Sarah's show-related squabbles with Michelle Obama and PETA - make the case.

"3.066 million people turned in last week to see her episode with Kate Gosselin," a TLC insider says. "That's more than are watching Bravo's Housewives."

GOING FOR THE KILL: Palin's strikin' while the iron's hot.

"The network is doing everything it possibly can to convince Sarah to do another season, but at the end of the day it will all come down to the money."

Sarah, who is reportedly making more than $250,000 per episode for the eight-week series, started talking new deal immediately after the premiere.

"Sarah knows to strike when the iron is hot and started talking about season two right after the show debuted to huge numbers," a friend of Sarah said.

"She knows celebs get millions per episode and thinks she's worth it. Jennifer Aniston made millions from Friends. In Sarah's eyes, she's no different."

Maybe she and Kate Gosselin have more in common than they think. They may come from different worlds, but self-love unites them for all eternity.

Friends drew more than three million viewers, but Palin may not be too far off in seeking a raise. Think about how much caribou meat that can buy ...

Yeah, let's keep spreading hate, racism, and intolerance because we are making so much money off Sarah Bin Palin. The media created the Palin phenom for one reason...$$$. 65% of the country hate Sarah Palin and know that this world would be much better off without her.

I agree with the majority of lay abouts posting here! Sarah does NOT need to become the president of this used-to-be-great nation because it will soon fall under a very different mind-set. I would strongly advise that she negotiate fo-mo-moan-ay (for more money) from TLC because that too will soon fall under this same mind-set. I would fo-show (for sure) strike while the iron's hot! Learned it here!

We don't need a reality tv 'star' to run for presedent. Ugh, what a nightmare. I'm not for the far right or left, why is it so hard for people to just want good in the world. (Almost all) republicans refuse to vote yes for picking up the DYING 9/11 first responders medical bills cause its 'wreckless spending' but will use 9/11 itself as the reason to keep funding this war killing lower middle class citizens who don't have many options in the first place. WAKE UP and do some good, your killing this country I call home.. racist ignorent greedy bastards. Does ANYONE feel the same at all?

Loved her show; learned a few things about Alaska that I did not know. Its interesting that those on the far left call her stupid. The facts be known; they are the ones most racist; and lack in the IQ department. Give us a President that will follow the will of the people, not someone with their own left wing agenda who think they know better than the people because, you see, they are real smart; runs up the national debt, and then blames it on someone else. I don't think Sara Palin would do such a thing.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
