Morning Show Wars

Sarah Palin to Co-Host 'Today'

4/1/2012 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NBC has countered ABC's move of bringing Katie Couric to "Good Morning America" this week by announcing Sarah Palin will co-host "Today" this Tuesday. 

On their website, the peacock said that Palin will "reveal a different side of her than you've seen before." NBC is also promising that "a surprise legend will return to the broadcast Monday morning."

Palin and Couric are forever linked from their infamous interview in 2008 when Couric hosted "CBS Evening News."

The interview is widely credited for destroying Palin's credibility ... probably forever.

The Palins are nothing but racist homophobic bigots, all of them. They don't deserve to be on any national program or any program for that matter.

Boy I hope somebody eats this at NBC. This is an idiotic stunt that shows a real lack of respect for their own profession.

Couric is old and great looking, her mouth and teeth are repulsive to look at and looks like ALIEN mouth, how this bitchy gal gets air time is a wonder to anyone. Katie please retie and hide that ugly face

Can't wait! It will be the only time in years I have even turned the show on. Watch the ratings, folks. She'll blow it up. SP is the greatest, most influential politician of the generation. A true patriot, and unfortunate for the liberals, not at all lacking in intelligence or capability. Her record proves it. Clearly, after the last four ears, one has to admit - records count, and had we had one on Senator Obama (thanks lib media) he would have never made it in.

Umm ok...    

Whether you like it or not, Sarah Palin's ratings will tromp Katie Courics. Katie Couric is booorrring and her attempt at hosting the nightly news was a joke, I think 200,000 people in the entire United States were tuning in to watch her so obviously she got canned, meanwhile Sarah Palin has sold 7 TIMES the amount of books Obama has. Bottom line, Couric = please-like-me-snooze-fest ... Palin = RATINGS

I guess TMZ has the fix in for the poll. This thing is ALL OVER Palin's Facebook page. We are blowing it up over there. However, I have watched over 2800 votes go on in the last five minutes and not ONE CHANGE to the poll percentages. I KNOW what the Palin supporters are capable of. TMZ is cooking the proverbial books over here.

Oh yuck! Really? It's bad enough that I hear of some of the crap she spews on FOX (no way in hell I'll ever watch any of their unfair and unbalances garbage), but now they're giving her a platform on NBC? Will they challenge any of her lies about Pres. Obama? Will they call her on her hypocrisy? All I want to know about her is why she flew from Texas to Alaska while leaking amniotic fluid during the third trimester of a high risk pregnancy. Will the folks at NBC bring that up? Or, will they let this divisive, hateful shrew continue to berate the "lame stream media" and all left-of-far-right Americans? They’ll probably praise her while sitting uncomfortably through her forced charm, all the while hoping this ratings stunt doesn't backfire like every other recent Palin event. She is an embarrassment to Alaska, to women, and to this country. Seriously, whose idea was this at NBC. Is Karen Handel their new booking agent? Have they been bought out by the Koch brothers? Ties to the New Apostolic Reformation? It looks like she's searching for yet another door that "God" left cracked - way to help her out NBC.

That is the nail in the coffin. I would never watch this airhead on anything. NBC you are scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Sarah Palin is a complete idiot and an American embarrassment. she is a joke, a laughing stock. It's entertaining. Sarah Palin is mean spirited and completely phony, a quitter, and an imbicile.
