It was the heady days of last week's television. The unsinkable Bristol Palin was literally driving liberals insane by being kept afloat on Dancing with the Stars with the help of Tea Party phone voters, while her mother's new vanity show was breaking records of The Learning Channel.
Those days are now sadly lost in the mists of nostalgia. Now, Bristol's dream of pulling off a talentless win and thus "a big middle finger to all the people out there that hate [her] mom, and hate [her]" has sadly gone unrealized, and ratings for Sarah's show sunk by nearly half in the second week…
Episode two of the Palin reality show averaged just 3 million viewers, down 40% from the previous week.
Perhaps more troubling are the viewer demographics. The show averaged just 885,000 viewers in the advertiser-friendly 18-49 demo, and the median age of the show's viewer is a whopping 57 years old. According to The Live Feed's James Hibberd, that's 15 years older than TLC's median age of 42.
So, more than 70 percent of the viewers for Sarah Palin's Alaska are 50 or older? What an old demographic she has! They don't buy iPads or Xbox Kinects. Hahahahahaha! What's a demographic full of old-timers like that good for?
Oh, wait… Uh oh.
