Ratings Change

Hello, new blog friends!  I just wanted to congratulate my mother for doing a great job this morning hosting Today!  I laughed when she poked fun at herself by pretending to read all of those newspapers, a reference to that Katie Couric interview back in 2008.  I thought she did well discussing topics of the day, interviewing people, and generally just having fun with the regular crew.  I bet Today experienced a pretty big bump in the ratings due to all of the loyal Palin fans who always show support and encouragement!  I saw a comment that said to forget “Game Change” — Today should call this episode “Ratings Change!”

My mom definitely proves you can be in the lamestream media without being of the lamestream media.

Way to hold your own, Mom!

But can you really imagine Tori Spelling having a moose-kebob potluck?  Me either!

    I thought your Mom did a great job! I thoroughly enjoyed watching her on the show and I thought she had great chemistry with Matt and brought out a fun side in Ann we don’t get to see every day. I hope they invite her back one day! And the best part… the Today Show beat the show that KC was on… we all knew it would!

    Always a pleasure to hear Sarah Palin speak! Direct truth mixed with wit and style is something everyone can appreciate.
    I really enjoy your new blog Bristol, you also have your mother’s gift of inspiration.

    I enjoyed watching Sarah Palin on the TODAY show. It was the first time I’ve watched TODAY in over a year.

    Got the biggest kick out of your Mom on the Today show. She looked like the cat that ate the canary. I think she was really having fun with those people. After meeting her, and seeing that clear sincere expression in her eyes, I defy people to meet her, talk with her, then say I hate her. If you have different opinions, different politican views- that’s one thing. To hate is another. Enjoying your Bristol Bay. Thank You

    Bristol,
    You amaze me. I couldnt go through half of what you went through. More power to you and your mom!!!! I just wanna know how did you do it??

    I loved the segment with your mom dealing with teenage children and their body images…. sooooo funny, considering chins and things. She also tried to promote your reality show, shacking up with Gino. WOW.

    • Canadian Observer

      The folks at C4P are saying that the reality show with Gino is just a rumor published in the NE and until they hear it directly from the Palins, themselves, they are not going to believe it. They don’t think Bristol would do something like this as it goes against her values.

    Hi Bri! Your mom did a Fabulous job as always! She is so fun, yet classy and full of integrity! A true Christian! Read all the Palin books and got the Rogue movie, and Alaska dvd set…you’ve got big fans over here in MA! Wish we could go snowmachining with you sometime in Wasilla! Hugs! And “thanks Lord” for allowing Sarah to beat katie in the ratings!” woo hoo! The favor of the Lord!

    I didn’t see the cooking part but there are a lot of health advantages to a whole-food plant-based nutrition program. See the website of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

    Sarah Palin’s appearance on The Today Show was only up 23,000 viewers on Tuesday, from the previous day. Not much of a ratings boost. On Wednesday “GMA” drew 5.236 million total viewers, while “Today” was watched by 5.149 million viewers. That’s a gap of 87,000 viewers. Ultimately the casting stunt back fired because more people started watching Couric, for the first time, the following day. Perhaps viewers realized they were actually better off with Katie.
