Nielsen: 5 million watched Palin's TLC show

By Associated Press ,

NEW YORK (AP) — Sarah Palin made TLC history.

The debut of "Sarah Palin's Alaska," the former governor's travelogue about her home state, had just under 5 million viewers on TLC Sunday night.

The Nielsen Co. says that was the top–rated series premiere in the network's history, besting "What Not To Wear" in 2003.

During her first episode, the ex–vice presidential candidate did some fishing and rock climbing, along with trying to keep her daughter Willow's new boyfriend away from the girl's room.

Nielsen says the show reached triple the audience of what TLC had been reaching in the time slot this fall. But Palin still has a way to go to beat the network's ratings champ: the 10.6 million who watched the separation episode on "Jon & Kate Plus Eight."

'Sarah Palin's Alaska' is fairly accurate with the facts about her home state. But more spot on is the title of the upcoming TLC documentary series. It's definitely Palin's Alaska, if not anyone else's. The first episode, airing Sunday, portrays the state with a sweeping grandeur not so readibly accessible for Alaskans with less time and money than the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee.
