Sarah Palin Fox News Special Ratings

Sarah Palin Fox News Special Ratings – Sarah Palin has been in the news a lot throughout the last year and a half or so. Recently she turned down a fundraiser that she had previously support that was suspected of being involved in a crime scandal. Not a bad choice for the Republican because surely attending and supporting a committee fundraiser such as that one could be extremely detrimental to her reputation. Not that her previous appearances to the media haven’t already because at times she has been know to be at the blunt end of a lot of jokes. She doesn’t seem to let the controversy over her ability to be involved with politics get to her though because she is try to make more of a name for herself.

She’s been featured on a special Fox News report which was aired on Thursday night in Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record” time slot. Well over 2 million people watched the episode but critics are saying that it was nothing too special and won’t be remembered. The television network is actually reporting that the amount of viewers who left the television station after seeing Sarah Palin on television was far higher than previous episodes. A clear supporter that Sarah Palin just wasn’t meant for Fox News reporting. Fox, a definite republican channel is sure to be disappointed in her performance and for good reason. With primarily republican viewers for a primarily republican channel you would think that Palin would be able to step her game up for the viewers sakes. Apparently, republicans don’t want to see their rumored candidate for President on television. So not this time Sarah Palin! You definitely weren’t up to par as a news anchor.

      I’m so sick of seen this Fox news marionette called Palin. Fox news has become a republican shopping network. Their only agenda is to bad mouth Obama and give a forum to have been politicians spilling their sour grapes. Obnoxious, self-promoting clowns selling books and so called freedom concerts that only helps their taliking heads.

      I think a lot of Fox News viewers are on vacation at their winter resort and are not able to view. I’m heading home now and can’t wait to watch Fox News in NY State

      I have just hear this woman is killing animals and offering bounties on them If this is true, we should not have her in any position of power. How she made it thus far may be a mystery as she is said to be not too clever either (ref Africa is a continent?). If people like this are in charge of things in the world, surely they should do a good job?

      More pure SPIN. The reality is that Greta draws in more than just ‘REPUBLICANS’. Greta draws from across the political spectrum. Sarah’s base is not ‘REPUBLICANS, but CONSERVATIVES. The people that left the show don’t like her, but you failed to mention that Sarah brought in larger numbers than Greta, so the people that first tuned in and then tuned out ended up being a much less number than the new people that tuned in. Fox was quite happy with the result, especially a special that cost them next to nothing to put together. I bet at the end of the year this special gets the network one of it’s best bang for its buck.

      On the other hand it didn’t do much for Sarah. She came across a very nice person, who if you didn’t know her and saw for the first time, would be intrigued at the new woman at Fox. If Fox is going to put on these specials they should have her go out into the field and do the interviews. I believe she would see it as more authentic and enjoy it more. AND Above all else, put it during the Hannity time slot. That would be her audience.

      TOOOOOO MUCH PALIN!!!

      1.Fox, a definite republican channel is sure to be disappointed in her performance.

      Q. Can you cite a source for that conjecture? She had nearly 2,000,000 viewers–about average for that time slot, generally speaking. Furthermore, holiday weeks depress ratings almost as a universal. Jamie Oliver’s show’s ratings, a solid performer in prime time, dropped by 40%. “Ghost Whisperer” was also one of many shows that tanked.

      2. With primarily republican viewers for a primarily republican channel you would think that Palin would be able to step her game up for the viewers sakes.

      Would you happen to know how many recorded the show on a DVR? I don’t think I’m unusual in a newly aquired habit of “delayed viewing”. Until this year, I had missed only one episode of “24”. I’ll get to it eventually.

      3. Apparently, republicans don’t want to see their rumored candidate for President on television.

      A. See #1 and #2

      4. So not this time Sarah Palin! You definitely weren’t up to par as a news anchor.

      This is an incomprehensibly dumb statement. This was not a “news show” and her role was definitely not that of a news anchor. It is a carefully crafted mechanism being employed by Fox–particularly Roger Ailes–to manage Palin’s image in a very benign, tightly controlled way and to give her more exposure to a large number of Americans divorced from caustic political rhetoric.

      But a “news anchor”. Your suggestion that was the role she was playing on the show doesn’t even pass the laugh test.

      Sarah Palin is ready for the Presidency.

      whine whine whine…. blah blah blah…

      her ratings were just fine since every other cable show that night was down because of long weekend so cut the bullcrap…

    9. James says:

      you whine like a little baby…
