'Sarah Palin's Alaska' breaks TLC record, close to 5 million viewers


SARAH PALIN’S ALASKA, TLC’s new adventure documentary premiere episode drew in nearly 5 million viewers for its debut on Sunday, November 14, making it the cable channel’s #1 series launch in TLC history, despite competition on other networks including NBC’s Sunday Night Football, ABC’s Desperate Housewives and CBS’ Undercover Boss, in the Sunday 9/8c time slot.

The eight part family-friendly adventure documentary gives viewers a glimpse behind the scenes into the world of Sarah Palin as a mother, wife and working woman and has received rave reviews across diverse media outlets and from viewers nationwide.

Each episode of SARAH PALIN’S ALASKA features everything from quiet family moments to only-in-Alaska experiences such as fly fishing among bears, tracking caribou above the Arctic Circle and scaling a challenging peak in Denali State Park.

According to Christianity Today, “If you find Sarah Palin compelling as a potential presidential candidate or mom and you want to see Alaskan beauty, you’ll appreciate this show…The scenes of wildlife […] are spectacular!”

Viewers will also see a rare and intimate glimpse into the Palin family dynamics, including touching moments with their son Trig who was born with Down Syndrome.  “He helps us focus on the heart of the family,” Sarah says, “He’s the light of my life.”

Every possible aspect of the “life” of Sarah Palin is explored and showcased in this endearing documentary series.  It can be seen for the next seven weeks on TLC, Sundays at 9/8c
