The Sarah Palin Show?

With the news that Glenn Beck will leave his afternoon Fox News hour for new ventures, Megan Fox at NewsReal Blog opines that Roger Ailes should fill Beck’s slot with a replacement who, like Beck, “makes the Left put their full-blown moonbattery on display.” Among the 10 potential candidates to take over the 5 PM slot on Fox News she suggests is Gov. Palin:

Leftists suffer from a derangement syndrome even more acute than the one attached to George Bush when they talk about, read about, write about or even think about Sarah Palin. The second she appears in public, they are programmed like Terminators to lock on and destroy by any means necessary. Nothing is off limits, not even her physically disabled toddler. It’s sad, but it’s a great opportunity to expose the mentally unstable Left to regular folks. They are never more unattractive than when they are excoriating the Palins.

A show hosted by Palin would offer ample opportunities to tweak the Left. After the news or issues of the day, Palin could feature the “Caribou Barbie Corner” where she could demonstrate how to field-dress a moose or how to butcher a caribou and offer helpful freezing tips. That could segue into a cooking segment where a guest could help her prepare the day’s kill. Todd can get in on the action too in “Todd Time” where he can offer stay-at-home-dads advice and guidance as well as snow machine racing footage. This would drive the Left insane.

The best part would be watching the anti-woman feminists come out of the woodwork to try to strip her of her “womanhood,” further demonstrating the faux feminist agenda has nothing whatsoever to do with women, but with the cause of the Left alone.

[...]

Did I mention the Facebook group entitled “Sarah Palin Must Die?” It has since been removed, but it had over 1,000 members. She is definitely the right person to make the Left jump right off that cliff of civility.

[More]

While the prospect of Sarahcuda making the moonbats bark every weekday afternoon with her own TV program is indeed tantalizing, Palin supporters are hoping that the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate has other plans and higher ambitions.

Some of the other candidates Megan Fox mentions are Tammy Bruce, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Steyn, among others — all of whom have been successful in radio — but we’re not sure that success would carry over to television. Rush, for one, tried it years ago, and found that radio was much better tailored to his style. We like Megan Fox’s #6 pick, Andrew Breitbart:

Andrew Breitbart is some kind of mad genius who has taken the Internet by storm with Big Journalism, Big Hollywood, Big Peace, and Big Government. “Big TV” is the next logical step.

Breitbart’s effect on “progressives” is to drive them into fits of rage almost as intense and insane as the seizures into which our Sarah sends them. “Big TV” would be must-see TV for red-blooded conservatives.

Jack Carr: Sarah Palin Is A Media Sensation

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 5, 2010

A mixture of condescension and admiration, Jack Carr’s article makes some noteworthy observations about Sarah Palin’s amazing success story.  It was impossible to remove all the small barbs, but here are some of the more salient points:

When Sarah Palin made her debut as the host of “Real American Stories” on Fox News on Thursday night, she described several triumphs of regular people over insurmountable odds, but she missed an obvious one: her own.

[...]

With its tales of uplift and pluck, “Real American Stories” trades in the kind of easy sentimentality that provokes eye rolls among those of us who work in media while quickening the pulse and patriotic ardor of almost everyone else. At the beginning of the show, Ms. Palin promised that it would “reaffirm our pioneering spirit and unmatched generosity, here and around the world.”

And so it did, with two million people tuning in. It featured a young man with cerebral palsy who was inspired to walk by the love of a dog, a millionaire who financed the college educations of legions of underprivileged youngsters, and a soldier who died to save his brothers in arms. (LL Cool J’s interview was withdrawn after he complained that it was going to be used in Ms. Palin’s show, proving that not everyone was in the reaffirming mood.)

[...]

She was paid a $1.25 million retainer by HarperCollins. Her book, “Going Rogue,” has sold 2.2 million copies, according to its publisher, and she has another tentatively scheduled for this fall.

She now has an actual television career, including appearances as a pundit on Fox News, her gig as the host of “Real American Stories” four times a year, and a coming eight-part series on TLC called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” which will cost, according to some media reports, $1 million an episode (a lot more than governors make for “Come visit!” P.S.A.’s).

Other people have crossed the border from politics to media to very good effect — George Stephanopoulos, Patrick Buchanan and Chris Matthews, to name a few — but the transition was far more gradual. Ms. Palin turned on a dime and was a ratings sensation from the word go: her first paid appearance, as a commentator on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Jan. 12, was good for an extra million viewers.

Her appeal doesn’t stop at the red states. When Ms. Palin stopped by to chat with Oprah Winfrey — not exactly friendly territory — the show achieved its biggest ratings in two years.

[...]

Back in September 2008, when she was unveiled in St. Paul during the Republican convention, a longtime political reporter told me that her appeal would burn off over time. I wondered about that. I’m from Minnesota, which is sometimes considered the southernmost tip of Alaska, and her way of speaking in credulous golly-gee may have been off-putting to some, but there is a kind of authenticity there that no image handler could conjure.

In Ms. Palin’s America, everyone’s got bootstraps; they just need to have the gumption to find them. And her version is full of plain old folks spending a lot of time overcoming a great deal, including a government that she posits usually intends to do them harm. “America is exceptional! It’s not her politicians that make her so; it’s her everyday people and the values Americans hold so dear,” she said on her Facebook page, which, by the way, has 1.5 million fans.

[...]

Ms. Palin still gets a session in the media spanking machine every time she does anything, but the disapproval seems to further cement the support of her loyalists. Ms. Palin may or may not be qualified to represent America around the world, but she certainly represents vast swaths of the American public and has a lucrative new career to show for it.

If we don’t see why, then maybe we deserve the “lamestream media” label she likes to give us.

Palin’s Debut on FOX Nation Draws 4 Million Viewers (Updated)

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 14, 2010

Sarah’s debut as a FOX News contributor on the O’Reilly Factor on Tuesday drove up the ratings for that show just as it did for Oprah Winfrey’s show in November.

From FOX Nation on Thursday:

The Nielsen ratings are in and former V.P. hopeful Sarah Palin hit the nearly 4 million viewer jackpot last night for her debut appearance on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor” as a Fox News contributor. The count: 3,954,000 people tuned in to watch Palin last night.
 
That number is up 42 percent from the same night last year, and up 26 percent compared to every other day of the show in January.
 
Palin’s appearance beat out CNN’s Campbell Brown, who had 999,000 viewers last night. The show also beat every ABC program between 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., which included shows like “Scrubs” and “Better Off Ted.”

Last night, Bill O’Reilly remarked that his show in which Sarah Palin debuted on FOX had more viewers than all the other networks combined.  The New York Post confirmed that this morning.

From the New York Post this morning:

Sarah Palin was a smart hire for Fox News Channel, judging by the ratings for her debut on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday. The former Alaska governor’s first appearance as an analyst drew 3.954 million viewers — more than everything else on other cable new shows combined in the 8 p.m. hour. CNN’s “Campbell Brown” placed second with 999,000 total viewers, MSNBC’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” placed third with 906,000 total viewers and HLN’s “Nancy Grace” brought up the rear with 704,000. Compared to host Bill O’Reilly’s ratings the night before, the Palin push was worth a 22 percent rise in ratings, or more than 1 million more viewers including the repeat of O’Reilly’s show at 11 p.m. The former vice presidential candidate, who appeared yesterday for a full hour on Fox News with Glenn Beck, will be on “Oprah” today with James Cameron and Lady Gaga.

Sarah Palin Joins FOX News As a Political Commentator

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 11, 2010

Early this afternoon (12:32 PM), Jim Rutenberg at the New York Times was the first to report (h/tp C4P) that Governor Sarah Palin has signed a multi-year contract with FOX news:

Former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska has signed on as a contributor to the Fox News Channel.

The network confirmed that Ms. Palin will appear on the
network’s programming on a regular basis as part of a multi-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Ms. Palin will not have her own regular program, one person familiar with the deal said, though she will host an occasional series that will run on the network from time to time. This
person would not elaborate, but the network does have a precedent for such a series.

Oliver L. North is the host of an occasionally running
documentary series on the military called “War Stories.”

Later this afternoon, FOX News posted this online:

The former Alaska governor, whose book, Going Rogue: An American Life, became a bestseller weeks before it was released and remains No. 2 on the New York Times bestseller list, has signed a multi-year deal to offer her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms, including Fox Business Channel, FoxNews.com and Fox News Radio.

She will also participate in special event political programming for
Fox Broadcasting.

“I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox
News. It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced
news,” Palin said in a written release.

Palin will also host periodic episodes of Fox News Channel’s “Real American Stories,” a series exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape that will debut in 2010.

“Governor Palin has captivated everyone on both sides of the political spectrum and we are excited to add her dynamic voice to the FOX News lineup,” said Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming.

Mike Allen at Politico had this to say:

After spending five months pondering a fat stack of TV offers, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has signed a multi-year deal with Fox News to serve as a contributor across all Fox News platforms….

Palin, often described as having the hottest brand in American politics after
President Barack Obama, was eagerly courted by both cable and broadcast networks beginning the day she announced she was leaving the Alaska governorship.

This puts Governor Palin in an excellent position to offer unfiltered political commentary on America’s most-watched cable news network. It will also give her a platform from which to speak as she becomes involved in the 2010 mid-term elections and beyond.

Congratulations, Governor Palin and FOX News!
