Ratings Hit: Palin's 'Alaska' May Return for Second Season

More Sarah? You Betcha!

The television popularity of Alaska's "mama grizzly" former governor may mean a second season for TLC's "Sarah Palin's Alaska."

According to PopEater, the rugged outdoors and folksy charm of the Palin family have been "such a huge hit" for TLC that the network is working to get the former governor to sign up for season two.

Last week's episode -- guest-staring reality TV diva Kate Gosselin and her eight kids -- drew more than 3 million viewers for the cable network. "That is more people than are watching Bravo's 'Housewives' series or most other cable shows," PopEater reports. "For sure the network is doing everything it possibly can to convince Sarah to do another season, but at the end of the day it looks like it will all come down to money."

"Sarah knows to strike when the iron is hot and started talking about season two right after the show debuted to huge numbers," a friend of Palin’s reportedly told PopEater. "She knows that celebrities get millions of dollar for each episode of their shows and thinks she's worth it too."
