In 2010, Palin invited cameras to her home for TLC's 'Sarah Palin's Alaska.' However, the network has reportedly passed on the new project. THR reports Palin and 'Sara Palin's Alaska' producer Mark Burnett are pitching the program focusing on her husband and his career as a snowmobile racer. A&E Networks, which entered a bidding war with Discovery over 'Sarah Palin's Alaska,' has also passed on the show.

'The Colbert Report'There's no such thing as a wrong opinion, but it's still important to gather as many facts as you can about the topic you're discussing before you go into it on a news program, or at the very least get their name right. Sarah Palin clearly missed that step in the process on a clip shown on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

In talking about GOP candidate Herman Cain, who shot to the top in a tie with Mitt Romney in the latest polls, she kept referring to him as 'Herb' Cain. "Herb Cain," she said. "He came from a working class family."

"Yes, Herb Cain is from a working class family," Colbert agreed. "I wonder where Herman Cain comes from? Someone should really ask Sandra Palin."

Sarah Palin Coincidentally Goes to Iowa on 'The Colbert Report' (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert - Sarah PalinApparently, you can't have a party (or even a Republican party debate) without Sarah Palin appearing somewhere in the immediate vicinity. The former governor of Alaska announced that she would be visiting the Iowa State Fair this weekend, "coincidentally" just thirty miles away from the current Republican debates currently being held in Ames.

This startling case of kismet certainly wasn't lost on Stephen Colbert on last night's 'Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11.30PM ET on Comedy Central), who suspected that this wasn't all about the funnel cake (invented by Thomas Edison, don't you know?).

Lewis Black on Why He Won't Do Jokes About Sarah Palin (VIDEO)

Lewis Black, 'The Green Room with Paul Provenza'Lewis Black is never afraid to speak his mind. He usually does so in a very loud voice and with very emphatic hand gestures. It's kind of hard not to notice him. But as he explained on 'The Green Room with Paul Provenza' (Thu., 11PM ET on Showtime), he told his audiences he wouldn't make jokes about Sarah Palin, even though she "was like for me a mother lode."

It must have come as quite a shock, considering Black's very open liberal stance and left-leaning viewpoints. Why would he avoid a target that other comedians have been piling on for years? Especially as he tends to get very political and cerebral in his rants already. She's tailor-made for his point of view.

"I could not live in this world if I believed she was a real person," he explained of Palin. "And so, I have for the entire time that she's been around, treated her as a hallucination."

She said that Sarah Palin running for President is what made her think she could do it, but Leno was quick to remind her that Palin hasn't officially put her hat in the ring yet.

He opened 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), by saying, "I was totally geeking out this weekend to see the epic adventure of the eternal child hero in the adorable glasses who is mankind's only hope: Sarah Palin."

Colbert went on to draw some comparisons between the 'Harry Potter' movies and Palin's 'The Undefeated.'

"These two would make a great double feature, 'cause both movies are about outsiders plucked from obscurity by an old wizard," Colbert said, putting up a picture of Dumbledore and John McCain side-by-side.

Bristol Palin on 'Good Morning America'Sarah Palin hasn't announced that she's running for the presidency, but her daughter Bristol Palin said Monday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) that if it does happen, it would be a good thing for America. Bristol, promoting her new book, 'Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far,' also talked about more controversial topics with Robin Roberts, including her memoir's claims that Levi Johnston "stole" her virginity and her recent corrective jaw surgery.

Pressed by Roberts about her allegations against Johnston, Bristol clarified that she wasn't accusing him of date-rape, but called losing her virginity a "foolish decision." She also addressed her recent jaw surgery, which caused a mini-media firestorm several weeks ago. Bristol put the procedure in the same category as getting braces or contact lenses.

Katie Couric, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night'Katie Couric appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night' (Weeknights, 8PM ET on ABC) with excitement about her forthcoming daytime talk show in 2012, but Kimmel had his own theories as to what she was up to.

"She's not a big fan of mine," Couric said. "But it would have been interesting."

Stephen Colbert Reenacts Sarah Palin's Version of Paul Revere's Ride (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert, 'The Colbert Report'Stephen Colbert set out to defend Sarah Palin's version of Paul Revere's famous ride on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). That version had Revere "ringing those bells and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells."

"For those who say it's implausible for Revere to have ridden a horse while ringing a bell and firing multiple warning shots from a front-loading musket," Colbert said, "Prepare to eat historical re-enactment."

He then used an amusement ride horse to see how easily he could reload his musket while riding, which as it turned out was nearly impossible. Of course, there was one other problem Colbert was facing as his ride came to an end.

'Daily Show': Sarah Palin Stands By Her Version of Paul Revere Story (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 7th 2011 5:36AM
Sarah Palin, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Sarah Palin is one thing for certain, and that is certain. She is absolutely determined to never admit she was wrong, to stand by her convictions, her family and her words. And that is one of the reasons people are so divisive about her, according to 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central).

Jon Stewart played the clip of Palin describing Paul Revere's famous ride to the media. She said, "He who warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms by ringing those bells and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells."

Now clearly she's got the general idea of it right, and she probably has the story closer to accuracy than many Americans could come up with on the spot. It's how she responded later when she was advised she'd "messed up about Paul Revere."

Katie Couric Thinks Media Covers Palin Too Much, Trump Acted 'Like a Jacka**' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 7th 2011 5:27AM
Katie Couric, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Katie Couric may no longer be the anchor for the 'CBS Evening News,' but she has plenty of opinions about some of the top political personalities. She talked a little about both Sarah Palin and Donald Trump on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

She hit the nail on the head when she said Palin is such a polarizing figure that she's equally fascinating to both her supporters and detractors. "She makes good copy and so they cover her incessantly and maybe more than they actually should," Couric admitted.

When Jay Leno asked her about Donald Trump, Couric indicated that his behavior while he was sort of running for president was aberrant. "He actually can be a very, very nice person with a good heart. But I think he was just acting like a jacka** for a while."

Fox News Confuses Sarah Palin and Tina Fey in Graphic Gaffe (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Jun 6th 2011 6:30PM
Tina Fey's impression of Sarah Palin has left such an indelible impression on the American consciousness that even Fox News can't tell the two apart.

On Sunday, while Fox News anchor Shannon Bream was teasing an interview with the former Alaska governor, Fox flashed a graphic of Fey doing her Palin impression on 'Saturday Night Live.'

The visual blunder came on a day when Palin was busy defending her unique historical interpretation of Paul Revere's ride, which may have Fey reprising her famous impression sooner rather than later.

Check out a clip of the snafu and a statement from Fox News after the jump.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Calls Out Sarah Palin (VIDEO)

Elisabeth Hasselbeck talks about Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin on 'The View'The race for the Republican nomination for president is a bit of a circus right now, with potential candidates looking for the right time and situation to announce, and trying to assess their chances. Mitt Romney unveils his candidacy today in New Hampshire, and today on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Elisabeth Hasselbeck declared her support for Romney and blamed Sarah Palin's much-hyped bus tour for distracting people from more substantial matters.

"If I had termites in my house, I'd get someone in there who could deal with it," said Hasselbeck. "Mitt Romney, right now, his specialty is the economy. I'd have him in there. Here's why we're not hearing it: because Sarah Palin's on a bus, and right now she's manipulating in terms of media attention."
