TLC is quite happy with Sarah Palin’s Alaska. The network is currently working on securing a second season of the series, and sources say another season looks likely.
Palin, who is said to be making more than $250k per episode for the 8 episode season, has been keeping up with her series ratings and after the show premiered to over 4.96 million viewers – she started working on a new deal.
“Sarah knows to strike when the iron is hot and started talking about season two right after the show debuted to huge numbers,” a friend of Palin told PopEater’s Rob Schuter. “She knows that celebrities get millions of dollar for each episode of their shows and thinks she’s worth it too. Jennifer Aniston took home millions from Friends and in Sarah’s eyes, she’s no different.”
Well, I don’t think Sarah Palin should compare herself to Jennifer Aniston. Acting and being in a reality series are not the same thing. Not to mention that Friends brought in much higher numbers on a major network. There are still speculations online however that Palin might be able to rake in 1 million per episode for Season 2 of Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Do think it’s reasonable? Or do you think the big bucks should be reserved for actual actors and not those starring in reality series? Sound off in our comments!
