(CNN) – Sarah Palin's much anticipated reality show will hit the airwaves next November, just days after the midterm elections when the political world begins to look toward the 2012 presidential race.
"Sarah Palin's Alaska" – the show that has been billed as a "Planet Earth-style" documentary about the state – will premiere at 9 p.m. November 14 on TLC, network president Eileen O'Neill said at the Television Critics Association press tour, according to the trade publication Broadcast and Cable.
Little is known about the show besides the fact it is being spearheaded by "Survivor" creator Mark Burnett.
A Palin source told CNN in April that the show "is not going to be focused on her family, or in her house, or in Wasilla."
Instead, it appears the state of Alaska will be as much the focus of the program as the former vice presidential nominee.
"It's become clear it takes a special individual to thrive in Alaska," O'Neill said.
Variety reported earlier this year Palin stands to receive upwards of $1 million an episode.
Thanks for the warning btw...now I know just when not to watch that channel.
You loser liberals are just sickening. Every show that Palin has been on, the ratings went through the roof, Oprah, Leno, etc. You lunitic fringe (libs) only represent 20% of this country, yet you think you are in the majority. It's always the same 200 people that ALWAYS post your ignorant garbage on Palin articles. Maybe if you get off your computer, get a job, or go back to doing your job instead of stealing your employers time he's paying you for, then you'd have any creditability. How about you run for office, build a campaign organization, win local and state elections, start your own business, write a few books, go on the speaker's circuit, be a paid news commentator, or do any of the above, then someone would take you serious. Why are all the Democrats running far away from Obama with the mid-term elections coming up? You see, you are almost dust and ashes in the history books.
This is not news just bad program. Sve us from reality shows!!!
Half Gov Palin will have a new book too, one even written by herself this time, titled, "How to Flim Flam America and Make Millions"
Vote No in NOvember to the party of NO.
Reality, this will be comical, but I do not intend to watch.
Malabar....have you and Sarah been sharing the pipe today?
Let's take a quote from Rush Limbaugh about Obama. I hope she fails. I certainly won't watch an idiot make as ass of herself.
She's an embarrassment to all the intelligent Alaskans...well, I guess she's an embarassment to all intelligent Americans as well... With the recent news she has two million FB fans, it goes to show how many stupid ones there are in this country. No I won't be watching either, I've lived here longer than Sarah the quitter and I know what the real Alaska is like without a phony Alaskan spewing hate and vile
tv programing has reached an all time low
If the show lasts at all it will be a miracle. One segment should be how to be a mother .
This is Sarah's DREAM – from day 1 the pageant queen longed for attention and excitement.
She's NOT running for office so everyone should get that out of their head. She ENJOYS throwing darts at the President to the point where I truly believe she's reaching a 'climax' when she does so (dang, wishful thinking Ms. PA'IN).
The show will not last long – but then again, maybe it will because there are many 'ashHOLES' on TV that survive by the ignorant audience that watches!!!
Who ever thought they'd live long enough to see something dumber than "Jersey Shore"?
Good for her! That's the Conservative spirit!
... talk a good show about values, religion, and family – then bilk the unsuspecting dupes for all the money you can get.
Sister Sarah, true conservative.
I have no intention of watching Palin provide misinformation about Alaska or campaign for any office.
I hope they kept her away from the glaciers during videotaping. Her voice could seriously degrade the remaining ice sheets.
What the hell is wrong with this country? Are we just a bunch of morons living in it?
It will be interesting to see how much this turns into a campaign promotion (Palin gets her way) or a comedy about how Palin exploits her constituents for personal gain (I get my way). I wonder how Mr. Brunett is going to spin it?
I think she would be a big success if it was a comedy show something like the three stooges.
I hope we get to see her "hunt" animals from a helicopter....
Palin on a "reality" show. It's too bad she doesn't know what reality is!
I thought is was her schedule for the frontal lobotomy she was waiting for. Oh, she already had that, sorry.
TLC has "Cake Boss" now it has "Fake Boss."
I find it ironic that they call ANY show about Sarah Palin a "Reality show".
Our dear Queen of the Deluded Fruitcakes Anonymous Pageant (Alaska Chapter) would have a hard time finding reality unless she was homing in on it through the crosshairs of a high-powered rifle from a helicopter.
I hope her show is a success and that she makes a lot of money. I wish her succcess and happiness in her life. I just do not want her in any elected position of authority in this country.
I think she should be allowed to do a reality show but it is also a reality that she could not name even one of our founding fathers. Can the producers of that show include names of our founding fathers in that show? It is never too late to learn.
GO SARAH!!!!!!! Keep tweeking those Liberals.
How come nobody said anything when BO wrote two books, with not very many accomplishments – and made a lot of money.
