I dont find that show appropriate with wars going on and our men and woman fighting in different theaters you have movie stars making believe they are hero’s for doing what our men and women do every day just to survive i view very few so called stars as hero’s unless they actually do something heroic i wont watch the show and im not impressed with their mimicry

He was great! Got the nickname of Rambo....I also discovered I would not want to go toe to toe with Laila Ali. Very pleased with the show, good to watch. Amazed with the combat veterans that they assembled.

I watched, I worried about some of the things you mentioned, however they had some of the finest soldiers to authentically show what they go through day to day. One had just returned from a tour in Afghanistan. In reality the focus was more on the men and women who fight than the stars. It gave them all an appreciation for what they do, as well as gave monies to charities to support our military.

We punched by and watched 15 minutes or so of it.

My wife’s comment was: “So that’s why she always has that smile on her face.”

Stars Earn Stripes pits “celebrities” with (military) operators in a “simulated” combat contest.

Todd lost his celebrity partner, completed the shooting portion of the “mission” himself, beat the operators through a bog and carried a crate back lik eit was just so much styrofoam and a walk in a park.

Good to hear! Its just starting here in CAlif. They are trying to ignore Todd, giving most of the air time, to some yahoo. Giving Todd to the policeman, not even a swat guy. So I’m glad to hear he’s doing well. After lifting nets and nets full of fish and surviving the ididerod, I am not surprised...

We don't have an actual boob tube, and no cable or satellite TV either.

I wonder if the episode will be available on NBC's website at some point?

The show is a way to show people that our military is willing to die to protect us. All of the military has earned the respect of the constestants

I don’t think Todd thinks of himself as a “celebrity.” But, dang - he was good. I’m jealous of Sarah. (just kidding) He sure is a manly man.

They are all doing this for charity and I happen to like watching what the military goes through to protect this country. They sure are treated like crap from this administration.

Compare this to zero throwing a baseball. It isn’t a pretty picture, is it?

Just saw Todd kick some major ass out there. Everyone was really impressed, basically doing it all on his own but also wanting to show comfort for the guy who didnt do too good. No wonder liberal woman hate Sarah so much, Todd is not only a hunk(Yes Im a chick so I can say that :-) but a class act too!

Im sure ill get flamed for this,but in my humble opinion,For Todd or Sarah to be on a show like this is a little to sideshowish,,.I dont want presidential cndidates,future candidates or thier spouses in reality tv shows.just my 2 cents,,I think it cheapens them to the same level as the kardashians.

I saw about 20 minutes of the show. I liked it more than I expected. I missed Todd Palin in action, though. Who was his celeb partner and what happened to her (I assume it was a her)?

The part I liked MOST was when one of Todd’s team (one of the real-life soldiers) said something afterward to the effect of “Who needs Chuck Norris? Just send in Todd Palin!”

(Does anyone have the exact quote? Or a link to a replay?)

Oh darn... Todd Palin was on that show? Now I'm sorry I missed it.

I saw "Stars Earn Stripes" (clever name) advertised constantly during the Olympics. Is the show worth watching? Is it pro-military / pro-conservative, or.... pro-Obama?

There is a great line in the vid you linked: “Next time I go to war, I want Todd Palin on my side!”

Nutmeg...I don’t watch reality shows. But, I watched this one.

Todd kicked some serious butt!

His op said that who needs Chuck Morris when you have Todd! lol

In all seriousness, these guys are competing on this reality show and their efforts will benefit military charities. My fav so far is the post-military charity...one that helps vets return to civilian life.

However, that’s the only one I heard about in depth. I’m sure that after I watch next week’s program, I will find others. ;o)

I think that your ping list would enjoy this program.

Forgot to mention that it’s also scheduled on the east coast tonight at 10 p.m. I can’t record it then because I’ve got two other programs being recorded on my DVR, so I’ll have to wait until Saturday. Enjoy!

Funny. What’s the point of not having a TV if you turn around and watch TV shows on your computer?

Watched the show last night and was kind of aggravated that ole Wesley was matching up the Pros with the Celebs as I thought Todd was paired with the “cop”. What we lost sight of during the competition is that Todd carried his “ops” as they seemed confused when the other celeb didn’t make it through the first hurdle. I noticed the Op was slow to help Dolvett in the water and from their the mission just went downhill until Todd took control. Even Chris Kyle, the Navy Seal was impressed. What I really liked about the show was that even the women - Ali, Street and Torres gave maximum effort and didn’t expect any special treatment. With the case of Dolvett and Terry, I just don’t think they were fully prepared for the show and were kind of blindsided by some of the evironmental barriers of the mission. Otherwise, I enjoyed the break away from talent and dirty hotel and cooking shows.

Wesley Clark was there to be “the man who is in charge”, and nothing more, except to collect a large pay check.

It was obvious that Todd was very impressive. He had to carry his squad all by himself.

The coming weeks will be very interesting.

I hope I remember what day and time it’s on. lol

Todd will be resident of the White House for 16 or more years in the future — that’s for certain.

That annoyed me too, but I checked his bio and he served in the marines and is an Iraq war veteran who then went into law enforcement.
