Sunday night’s premiere of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, the new Mark Burnett-produced series featuring the former governor of Alaska and Republican vice presidential candidate, racked up 4.96 million total viewers and gave TLC its best series launch ever, according to Nielsen fast nationals. Some critics have said the show seems more like a pro-Palin ad, but in an interview with The Daily Beast last week, Burnett said he believed the show was ‘completely non-political’ and that when it came to politics, ‘I’d rather be riding my bike.’
