Former vice-presidential candidate and Alaskan governor Sarah Palin has been confirmed as the host of a new reality series to air on TLC. Discovery Communications announced Thursday that Sarah Palin’s Alaska would be broadcast as an eight-part series on TLC.

“Our family enjoys Discovery’s networks,” Sarah Palin said in a press statement. “I look forward to working with Mark [Burnett] to bring the wonder and majesty of Alaska to all Americans.” Mark Burnett, who produced the reality shows Survivor and The Apprentice, will helm the new reality show as executive producer.

No air date has yet been set for the series. That’s okay though, because we really don’t give a damn. The only reason we’d tune in is if Sarah Palin plans on showing us exactly where she can see Russia from her house.

Whenever it airs, however, we solemly beg Tina Fey to bring her Sarah Palin impersonation to Saturday Night Live once again. There is just SO much about this whole gig that deserves some delicious mocking by the 30 Rock queen.
