5. Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin's Alaska (TLC)
Remember 2007? Wall Street hadn’t yet caused a global financial crisis. The Writers Guild went on strike. And Sarah Palin was just a glimmer in Tina Fey’s eye. The failed Vice Presidential candidate and ex-governor of Alaska gained more attention for her outrageous comments (“lipstick on a pitbull”) and her appearance than her actual politics.
After the election, the gun-toting hockey mom starred on Sarah Palin’s Alaska with her family, including daughter, and famed young mother, Bristol. The show didn’t last, and neither did her stint on Fox News. But we have the perfect way to keep her from running for office in 2016: give her another reality show.
