Sarah Palin eyeing daytime?
Mark Burnett courting former Alaskan governor for syndicated talk show
Reality TV guru Mark Burnett apparently sees Sarah Palin as the next Oprah. Now, he just has to convince the conservative firebrand, politician and best-selling author to sign on. Palin allegedly turned down Burnett's offer to host a major syndicated talk show, but isn't ruling out the idea of bringing her brand to the "lamestream media."
"Todd and I have always loved working with Mark Burnett, and our family is always up for adventure, so never say never," Palin told Newsmax.
While the specifics of Burnett's offer weren't released, the story offers a few theories on why Palin hasn't signed on yet. One source pointed to the show location, which would be either New York or Los Angeles. That would cause a clear logistical issue for the Alaskan native, but another insider points to Palin's "distaste for cultural elites in the Big Apple and LA."
A third insider suggests location isn't the sticking issue: Money is.
While Burnett didn't comment on the story, Palin's quote indicates the talk show could still come to fruition.
Former Vice Presidential candidate Palin teamed up with Burnett's production company to host TLC's "Sarah Palin's Alaska" in 2010-11. This venture would be Burnett's first daytime talk show, though he's certainly no newcomer to TV. The King of Reality TV changed the face of primetime when he launched "Survivor" in 2000. Current shows include "The Apprentice," "The Voice" and "Shark Tank." Burnett and wife Roma Downy also produced the History channel's hit miniseries "The Bible."
The only talent the Sarah has is she can run her mouth and out talk almost anyone with her gibberish... She does this as she has no idea what she is talking about and learned long ago that to just keep talking and talking makes her look intelligent...well to some she may look intelligent..
I had an old boss like this, people would look at her like she was from outer space...oh and by the way she moved back to Texas so it looks like the incessant talkers all move to texas...
This is the reason why Cable and Satellite markets are not as popular any more . Lame stupid reality shows and trashy talk shows with dumb hosts are replacing smart shows that made cable so demanding in the 80's, 90's and the first half of the 2000 decade . I had cable for 6 months last year and the poor content of MTV , History Channel Animal planet Spike E Entertainment TLC was just vogues, trashy, repetitive and cheap in the context of it only reason I had it was HBO and Comedy Central ironically I purchased for some of the other channels. It was a slap to the face discovering what a running load of garbage these stations have became . Thank you for inspiring our kids with those poor choices . I guess the American lame proverb "you can be what ever you want to be " has gotten a whole new meaning as well as other wordings that just to have a positive noble intentions behind . Go figure.
She Blows Chunks....my opinion. We all know what that means. I, personally, cannot stomach her.
Sarah Palin could not even finish her job as Governor of Alaska...why would we want to see her on TV? Go figure.
Don't be so desperate to make a fool out of yourself !!!!!!!!!!!!!
