Palin's TLC show ends planned 8-episode run

Posted: Tuesday, January 11, 2011

ANCHORAGE — The Palin clan is off the air, at least on TLC, at least for now.

“Sarah Palin’s Alaska” concluded Sunday with the final episode of the eight-part documentary series showing the former governor and her family having assorted adventures in their home state.

The show appeared ripe for a second season after attracting an average of more than 3 million viewers per episode, so the end of the cable TV show is generating online buzz about the reason it won’t continue.

The general consensus: The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee must be eyeing another run for the White House, this time in the driver’s seat.

However, TLC spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg says the plan from the start was for a single season only.
