Bristol Palin Fails To Attract Viewers To New Reality Show (she is going to be just like her mother - a failure!)

LOS ANGELES, June 21 (Reuters) - Bristol Palin tripped up with TV audiences after less than 750,000 people watched the first episode of her new reality show.

Palin, who found fame in 2008 as the accidentally (LOL - accidently, my foot) pregnant unmarried daughter of Republican conservative U.S. vice-presidential contender Sarah Palin, chronicled her life with her now three-year-old son Tripp in the Lifetime show "Life's a Tripp."

But according to audience figures on Thursday, just 726,000 watched the show when it debuted on Wednesday. By contrast, some 3.3 million watched the latest installment of MTV's "Teen Mom" reality series on Wednesday.

"Life's a Tripp" got unenthusiastic reviews from TV critics and proved no match with the U.S. public for the polarizing but charismatic Sarah Palin. The 2010 TV series "Sarah Palin's Alaska" attracted some five million viewers on its first outing, but was canceled after one season. (Reporting By Jill Serjeant; Editing by Paul Simao)

    Isn't that just such a really very truly unabashed startlingly unfortunate turn of events....I feel soooooo bad for that girl.

    I used to feel sorry for her when everybody was slamming her for being pregnant. But then she got all fame hungry and made a joke out of herself, and now she only has herself to blame for the way people view her.

    Absolutely. Thanks for responding.

    Aw, POOR baby........I suspect she'll be okay, though. She has acquired substantial amounts of money, through her "abstinence only" ads (ha!), and other TV appearances.

    Like mother, like daughter. Great people to be preaching "abstinence only". Both got pregnant before marriage. And mom didn't even marry the father of her first child. She married "first dude" instead. What a chump he must have been.

    Getting pregnant before marriage, is not something I would judge anyone for. I dislike Bristol's mother intensely, for many reasons. I've not seen anything to like about her daughter, either.

    I was only pointing out how she, like her mother, doesn't practice what she preaches.

    Yes, we share that view. Many people don't; in their case, it is obvious.
  • Andy 2012/06/24 15:10:02
    This is one of DOZENS of failed TV shows that pop up every year.... no big deal

    so says a republican.
  • Andy CuppaT ... 2012/06/25 18:55:35
    Yes... and someone who has seen Liberal and Conservative programming come and go over the last several decades...

    Sarah's reality show may have flopped, but I wouldn't consider her a failure.....

    We live in a great country where everyone is entitled to their own opinion. IMO, Sarah is both a failure (publicly and privately) and a quitter.
