Palin: She’s not going to be the next Oprah

Well, she's not going to be the next Oprah. Big surprise here — no one liked it. Not the Daily News, LAT, or anyone else. Some of the words used in reviews: "overly-scripted," "flat" and "boring." The results are in..

LA Times:
As a host, Palin brings little besides her name and all that it has come to mean. Despite her time on the campaign trail and in front of often-unfriendly cameras, Palin still has an eyes-locked-on-the-teleprompter stiffness.

Certainly there’s nothing wrong with having a show devoted to inspiring people, as the daytime talk shows have known for years. But it’s hard not to see Palin, who, after abdicating her own governorship is hardly an icon of stick-to-itiveness, as using this platform, and these people, to further the idea that she has a special relationship with “real Americans.” Which makes anyone who finds her less than enchanting at best a heartless cynic and, at worst, a traitor.

 
The Washington Post:

The debut on the Fox News Channel of Sarah Palin's "Real American Stories" Thursday night turned out to be like one of those shows that's on when nothing's on and yet there is air to fill — like infotainment you sometimes see on empty channels in hotel rooms, or the stuff that's playing on the little TV screen at the gas pump nearest the rental-car center. What are we watching exactly? (A commercial? News?)

Here is another, much more indepth review of the show by Inside Cable News.

    "boring"?? Ya, think??? The woman has no original thoughts. I'm surprised that she was flat, though, as she usually appears as though she is on meth. Please make her go away.

    it was boring and had a canned feeling,but she used mostly 2 year old interviews and taped her opinons over them,if she gets into being involved in the whole story from beginning to end it could be good.
