Sarah Palin's Big Decision -- Payday vs. Politics

1/10/2011 6:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If Sarah Palin's TLC reality show comes back for a second season, it's a sign she's choosing a big payday over a run at the White House ... Palin sources tell TMZ.

Network sources say TLC "would green light another season of Palin's show in a second." The show scored huge ratings and network honchos believe another installment would be even bigger.

We're told the decision to continue the show is squarely in Sarah's hands. Here are the considerations, according to our sources:

A) She would make millions of dollars by doing another season.
B) If she does sign on, she knows she's giving a clear sign to America she's not running for President in 2012.

We're told Palin has made absolutely no public decision, nor has she informed the network. There have been no negotiations. For now it's total radio silence.

Her 15 min of fame are lo-o-o-o-ng ovah....why anyone would trade Alaska (beautiful. pure, pristine) for that ****hole Washington (male-dominated, pressure cooker, corrupt) is beyond me. Go home Sarah. Look after your children and service Todd.

i wouldn't be so sure about her NOT making it into office. The last election showed that a person with -ZERO- experience can get elected if you can talk smooth and get into people brains with your worthless bablings.

TMZ you said the show renewal was a no go , now you report this.
Kind of feeling bad that you insinuated she is a violent inciter?

I wish you dumb azz Palin haters would make up your mind..she's republican, she's tea party. What specifically do you not like about her opinions? No one ever says. Oh is it because you're ignorant liberal flamers that are brainwashed by the media?

I can't stand her? Why? She's ignorant? According to whose standards and what is she ignorant about?

As far as the show I'd rather watch that rather than some lame "housewives" show or reality tv where people are porking each other, drinking, and cat fighting. And they call that talent.

I have learned a lot about alaska, it's industry and people.
And hopefully one day can vacation there. I enjoy the show and am glad that the Palins are self sufficient family and individualists. Our whole family enjoys the show from age 15 to 59.

As a black woman, I believe Sarah Palin will win the election, and be the new woman in the White House. Michelle Obama has done NOTHING for me!

There's no reason she couldn't do both. The reality show could do***ent the campaign.

If this crazy bag becomes Prez I am moving to Canada! She couldn't even finish her term as Gov. - what makes anyone think she could be President?! If we think the massacre that happened in AZ was bad- imagine what will happen in this country if she was running the country! Who's pic will she put up in the crosshairs next? When is enuf enuf with this assinine Tea Party?!
Oh- and TLC axed her show! THANK GOD!

Jazzy..it isn't Michelle's duty to do a freaking thing FOR YOU..she owes you nothing. Because she is a black woman and the wife of the President she she needs to do something for you?? Get a life and do something for yourself!

I really enjoyed all of the shows on "Sarah Palin's Alaska" They reminded me of the old series, "utual of Omaha's Wild Kingdon." Very wholesome TV viewing. I will miss it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful state with us.
