Nobody Wants To Buy Sarah Palin's Dumb New Reality Teevee Show
Uh-oh, guys, no one wants to pay money to yapping imbecile Sarah Palin for her job of "doing nothing" anymore! RLY SAD BUT TRUE: her insipid, publicly-funded reality teevee show about naked grizzly bear hunting in Alaska or whatever was not renewed for a second season, so she is apparently trying to shop around a new show starring Todd Palin pissing moose figurines into the snow. Absolutely none of the networks want to buy it, though!
Your prayers to Satan finally got through:
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Palin and [TV producer Mark] Burnett are pitching another reality series, this one more focused on Palin’s husband Todd and his career as a championship snowmobile racer. But for now, TLC owner Discovery Communications has passed, say sources. And A&E Networks, which entered into a bidding war with Discovery for Sarah Palin's Alaska, also is not interested.
So far, networks have balked at the steep asking price – Palin's Alaska went for north of $1 million an episode and sources say Burnett and Palin are asking for a similar payday for the follow-up. Mark Burnett Productions did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In other news, programming executives from TLC reportedly asked Mark Burnett what they wanted to call this new show. And they said, "The Aristocrats." [ The Hollywood Reporter ]
