Five million watched Sarah Palin’s TV show

2010-11-16 07:40

New York – Sarah Palin has made television history.

The debut of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, the former governor’s travelogue about her home state, had just under 5 million viewers on TLC on Sunday night.

The Nielsen Company said that this was the top-rated series premiere in the network’s history, beating What Not To Wear in 2003.

During her first episode, the former vice-presidential candidate did some fishing and rock climbing, along with trying to keep her daughter Willow’s new boyfriend away from the girl’s room.

Nielsen says the show reached triple the audience of what TLC had been reaching in the time slot.

But Palin still has a way to go to beat the network’s ratings champ: the 10.6 million who watched the separation episode on Jon & Kate Plus Eight.
