Sarah Palin’s Visit on the Today Show- Talking about everything she knows nothing about.


 

Sarah Palin fails to give ‘Today’ a ratings jolt

(AP) — If Sarah Palin’s star turn on the “Today” show was meant to send ratings soaring, it fell short.

The gap dividing NBC’s “Today” from ABC runner-up “Good Morning America” widened by just 23,000 viewers Tuesday compared with the day before, according to the Nielsen Co.

“Good Morning America” had its own guest star, Katie Couric, back on morning TV after many years hosting “Today.” But Couric, now at ABC, is filling in all week at “GMA.” Palin was “Today” guest co-host on Tuesday only.

“Today” drew 5.5 million viewers, while “GMA” had 356,000 fewer tuning in. On Monday, the gap dividing them was 333,000 viewers.

This morning-show rivalry has intensified as “GMA” chips away at the audience margin that has kept “Today” in first place for 15 years.

    Who’s asking for her opinion? Who’s perpetuating her false persona as an ‘engaged’ mother, conservative with a record, an accomplished poltician? Who’s allowing Palin to speak about teenagers and proclaim how it’s important for a parent in providing boundries; as a mom who really provided no guidance to her own children. Who portraits Sarah Palin as a characture one minute and a solid politican the next, and ask her about world events! Who’s calling her governor? OMG! I can go on and on! it’s the LAME STREAM MEDIA! The MEDIA as a whole want whatever Sarah Palin is selling…They’re lame because they have not offered to the news consuming public that Sarah Palin does not have a record of conservativism or competent governence. That she indeed, was found guilty of ‘ABUSE of POWER’ and quit her elected position! MEDIA could have and I really wish they would, present the ugly facts! She does not have the history of being an engaged mother or wife or good neighbor! Media why is Sarah Palin continuely given a platform to re-invent herself?

      The ratings war is the only reason they had her on. They don’t care what an incompetent boob she is. If she can possibly bring the ratings up, then they will parade her out there. And of course, if they ask any significant questions or, god forbid, expose her for the idiot she is, then the network exposes their shallow character and would have trouble justifying why they had such an ignorant twit on to begin with. Ratings/money or the possibility of such is the only reason they had her on.

    I didn’t watch her, but from comments about what others saw, i think they punked Palin with the pregnancy weight gain questions, the Palin/prostitutes, etc, etc.

    I agree. I think she got punked. Having her write notes on her hand, and sitting on the sofa with the newspapers! haha. And everyone knows she is lying when she says she didn’t watch Game Change. Of course she did; she just doesn’t want anyone to question her about it, which they would do if she said she watched it. The world got to see her blatantly lie. And her outfit was horrible. The comments on Today Show Facebook page was rife with discontent. The show lost many of their viewers to GMA for having her on the show.

    And the best part is, the day after Palin’s appearance, GMA won that day’s ratings war tally! Everything Palin touches turns to shit.

    This whole thing was just so immature. Let’s put Palin up against Couric!

    Of course, that made it tailor made for Palin, who believes “immature” is the new mature. She is so desperate for attention that she can’t see how people are making her even MORE of a joke.

    I’d feel sorry for her if she weren’t such a willing and determined participant.
