Guests for the first show include country singer Toby Keith, rapper/actor LL Cool J and Jack Welch. Get excited.

The show will “focus on a range of such stories including a Marine Medal of Honor recipient who gave his live to save his comrades.” But also there will be the celebrity guests – a very broad range of celebrity guests.

Does she want to be a politician or a journalist? I like her a lot, but I can’t figure out the TV series gigs.

I really WISH she wouldn't do this.

Look what overexposure has done to the kenyan...she doesn't need to be on the tube so much.

Ol' Colonel Parker (Elvis' manager) always said, "You gotta leave them wanting more...". That's why you never saw Elvis on TV much unless it was something of a spectacular nature...and it worked...he's been dead over 30 years and people are still buying his work and crying over him.

Also, interviewing other people and dealing with critics is no way to build up your popularity.

I don’t think she is going to run. Neither is Huckleberry.

I will watch though.

He’s in NCIS Los Angeles...my wife likes him...I think he’s OK...I’ve seen him act and he’s actually pretty good.

He was cast as a series regular in the CBS police procedural NCIS: Los Angeles, a spin-off of the NCIS. LL Cool J plays Special Agent Sam Hanna, an ex – Navy SEAL who is fluent in Arabic and an expert on West Asian culture. The series debuted in autumn of 2009, but the characters were introduced in an April 2009 crossover episode on the parent show.

He does a good job.

"LL Cool J still has a career?"

He stars in the CBS NCIS spin-off, which I gather does fairly well. This is a smart move on his part as NCIS skews a little more conservative than most broadcast dramas on TV.

I'm going to get real tired of SP real fast if she starts having every stinking vapid hollyweird idiot known to man on a tv show. Like there's not enough of that out there already.

I won't watch, but I'll still be embarrassed for her and of her if she does that.

Sarah can be anything she wants to be. She is doing it her way. I was worried initially but I’ve been really impressed with her instincts. I know some here cant deal with it when she doesn’t tie herself to a cross and wait for Armageddon.
Sarah is preparing herself not to be a Barry Goldwater but a Reagan and yet I believe she will be something more.

Airing in place of On The Record with Greta Van Susteren, the prime time spot ensures a large audience. And depending on just how large, we could see a lot more of Palin hosting on Fox News.

LL Cool K is one of the early rappers who didn’t do the gangsta thing.

He played Robin Williams half brother in the movie “Toys” years ago.

Yeah, I get the exposure mantra - for someone who wants to be a journalist, which is where she started out of college, right?

Too much exposure in politics is a bad thing though. It just gives the left more soundbytes to use negatively.

Overexposure was my first thought as well. I like her, but don’t want to see her every time I turn on the tv.

Personally, I think it would serve her more to take a bit of a leave, spend time with her family, and come back again.

Yes, Sarah needs to be careful to keep her forums positive and not let herself become “a television personality”. Even the best TV types are still not what Sarah can be.

It’s not something I understand politically but Godspeed.

One of the driving forces in elections nowadays, is the "youth" vote. The young are very idealistic, don't know squat about history or thinking logically, want a bunch of free stuff, and will vote for whoever is "cool". You've got to have that group energized when you enter into a campaign. I'm convinced that what helped BJ Clinton win was going on Arsenio Hall and playing the saxophone. I was in my 20's at the time, and even though I didn't trust the Democrats, even I felt that was just "too cool".

I dunno. I mean, it’s kind of like being a porn star. If someone has been a rapper, it’s hard to imagine that they can be a real person, and not this Dennis Rodman kind of pierced, tatooed freakazoid that no normal person would ever want to get within 20 feet of. If you go to a concert it’s sort of like going to the zoo. Except Marky Mark. I guess he grew out of it ok, I like Entourage.

/sarc Yeah..and Reagan wasn't running either when he did his radio program in between losing to Ford in ‘76 and running and beating Carter by a landslide in ‘80. you got to realize that Sarah Palin is a great fan of Ronald Reagan, and has studied how he set about winning in 1980.

Otherwise she would be touring and speaking overseas.”

How many past presidents have you seen prepare for their run by touring and speaking overseas?

Honestly, I find her presentation to be kind of like Con-Doleeza Rice’s. I mean, it’s fine and all, but there’s a certain catch, a certain lack of smoothness, that I think is going to make it hard for her to take on a certain serpentine politician that must be defeated.

OTOH, the bad news is, the 2012 elections are not that far away, and from what I can see, we got NUTHIN. NUTHIN!

More like Reagan: Movie star, then Governor, Failed Presidential Candidate In The Primaries, Radio Personality For Four years, then POTUS

Sarah: Mayor, Governor, Journalist, Losing VP Candidate, TV personality for 4 years, then POTUS (if she runs).

Where is the problem here?.
