TV: Todd Palin to be on ‘Stars Earn Stripes’
Washington Post ^ | June 19, 2012 | Lisa De Moraes

Posted on 06/19/2012 8:36:15 PM PDT by Bratch

Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, is among those competing in NBC’s new reality series “Stars Earn Stripes,” the network revealed Tuesday.

This is not entirely surprising, given that “SES” exec producer Mark Burnett also exec-produced Sarah’s TLC reality series “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” And late last year, word around Hollywood was that Sarah and Burnett were pitching a reality series about Todd’s career as a championship snowmobile racer. Apparently, there were no takers.

Maybe more surprising, retired Gen. Wesley Clark, the former supreme allied commander in Europe for NATO and a 2004 presidential candidate, is going to host the show with “Entertainment Tonight”/“Dancing With the Stars” alumna Samantha Harris.

We’ll give you a moment to mull that pairing.

[...]

Each week on “Stars Earn Stripes,” the competitors, teamed with members of the military or law enforcement, will attempt to complete “missions” inspired by military exercises. The winnings will be donated to first-responder and veterans groups. Todd, for example, is playing for Armed Services YMCA Alaska, NBC said.

Maybe I'm a little naive, but TPalin is sure to pull in viewers over and above what's normal for NBC, allowing them to charge a premium to advertisers; NBC and its minions benefit financially, maybe benefit greatly.

Seems to me this is feeding the beast.

I think that’s an interesting premise, having skilled civilians compete with skilled military to see who comes on top.

I’ve seen Burnett’s other shows. He would treat the military people with respect.

Sarah Palin's Ping List

"We'll keep our God, our guns and our Constitution."

(Posting for Onyx)

Sarah Palin's husband will be joined by an eclectic group of celebrities, including boxer Laila Ali, Dean Cain, singer Nick Lachey, gold medalist Picabo Street and ex-NFL star/actor Terry Crews.

NBC has tapped General Wesley Clark (ret.), ((ugh)) the former Supreme Allied Commander Europe for NATO and 2004 presidential candidate to host the show along with TV personality Samantha Harris (Entertainment Tonight, Dancing with the Stars)....

My TV seems to be stuck on Turner Classic Movies Channel, or the Military Channel. I can’t even watch Fox News much anymore, they’re stale.

A lot more interesting than watching people wander around a house, arguing and such.

"I think that's an interesting premise"

Of all the hyper-contrived reality shows, I really enjoy the ones that are based on military tactics and strategy.

Remember the show, War Games? The only disappointment was that SWAT contestants won over hard-core military.

I might DVR this just for the “Todd is a hot thing” factor.
