A week after a record-breaking debut, Sarah Palin's reality show saw its audience drop nearly 40 percent on Sunday night.
According to preliminary ratings, just 3 million people watched the second episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska." That's down from the nearly 5 million who watched the Nov. 14 debut episode, which was the highest-rated premiere episode in TLC's history.
One problem: Palin's show is losing ground with viewers aged 18-49. Per The Hollywood Reporter's James Hibbard, just 885,000 in that key viewing demographic watched the showdown 44 percent from last week. The median age of the show: 57 years old15 years older than the average TLC viewer.

How long can someone watch a person pretend she's gone hunting or fishing before? She really didn't look like she was experienced in any of the activities she was doing. I personally know many women who are far more "outdoorsy" than Sarah Palin appears to be. I question whether she had ever fired a gun or held a fishing rod prior to 2008. Just because she lives in a McMansion in Alaska doesn't make her Miss Wilderness.
I watched one episode 1. I think the show is alright, but I do agree shes not exactly a survival expert, or outdoor expert. However, I think the show itself is decent.
Thats a lot of viewers lost though
How long can someone watch a person pretend she gives a rat's ass about the environment of her state?
SP's Alaska is becoming more and more transparent.
In the shooting segment, did you notice the camera panned away? After about 4 attempts, Sarah still had not hit the target. They probably didn't want to embarrass her further.
On the halibut fishing segment, she didn't know that halibut dwell on the bottom. Of course, she also claimed they were "deep out at sea" but they were clearly sheltered in the calm bay.
I also wondered why, when driving in their RV, Bristol's baby did not sit in a baby seat -- or at least wear a seat belt? Maybe Alaska doesn't have the same laws as we have here.
Oh -- and Trig, who is supposedly "the center of our family" has been seen on the show for only about 1 minute -- being dropped off at Todd's parents' house. Yeah, Sarah is even exploiting her special needs child for her own political gain.
I watch the show because I want to see for myself exactly how far she will go to hoodwink the public. I hope it ALL backfires on her!
Maybe she'll learn she isn't all that. Who knows? If she is like any politician, she'll be lucky to see the truth in anything, regardless of having the evidence or not.
Just another prime example of ignorance run amok.
Most people tuned into the first show out of curiosity
Right On Cagsil. I do very much agree with you. When will Americans wake up?
The Learning Channel needs to get some better content. Half of the crap they shoe is a waste of video tape. This dingbat family with th 19 children is about one of the stupidest things I ever saw. My ex wife used to watch it and I always thought it would be funny, if on closer examination, half of the 19 children had the mailman's eyes. As far as Palin's show, I wouldn't invest the first 5 seconds on that thing.
"half of the 19 children had the mailman's eyes"
Palin? reality? in the one sentence?
I agree the learning channel has lost it.
They lost it with Jon and Kate...
Don't watch this show...watch Sherlock instead on PBS
I don't understand the fascination people have with dysfunctional families! or maybe that's why so many say they identify with SP.
I don't watch the 'reality' shows. from what I have seen, they're not reality at all. they're staged and it's anything for ratings.
The only "reality" show that I can stand is Gene Simmons show, and even that does not always seem real.
Thank God Dancing with the Stars is over, I was so tired of hearing about it. It seems the best dancer won, thankfully the judges had some say in the finale.

I saw an episode where Kate Gosselin and her kids went camping with sarah palan on her reality tv show. She did not seem to be enjoying it when they were camping, and was complaining. Her facial expressions were negative, and she was asking whats the point of camping when you can be in a lodge...

There are a "few" posts in the forums indicating the posters' firm beliefs that Sarah Palin's book is an effort to (A) make money, (B) settle scores, (C) suck in those of us foolish enough to believe she's a person of substance, (D) blow hot air, and/or a number of other negative...

So a former Palin follower has penned an expose.The gist is damaging emails that were supposed to be confidential (hey, if Wikileaks can do it, why not an Alaska gubernatorial staffer?).Upshot. She said some pretty nasty (and damaging) stuff.I hope this will be a minor attention blip on her descent...
