TV News Check:
Sarah Palin will be at next week’s NAB Show in Las Vegas taking meetings to promote her prospective syndicated court show, TVNewsCheck has learned.
In addition, the formerly untitled show now has a name — Palin Rules — although it’s being characterized as a “working” title that could be subject to change, sources say.
According to multiple sources, Palin will be sequestered in a hotel suite where she is expected to meet-and-greet programming executives from station groups who will be in town for the annual National Association of Broadcasters convention.
The meetings will represent the first time that station programmers will get to meet Palin and, in the process, get to know her and size up her potential as a prospective TV judge.
I wonder if she will meet-and-greet them while wearing a towel?
Cause we know she does that.
Here are a few more details:
Among other things, the show’s developers are considering having Palin be addressed on the show as “Governor” rather than “Judge Palin,” perhaps to play up her past role as governor of Alaska and play down the fact that she has no real-world experience as either a lawyer or a judge. To amplify that point, she might not wear judicial robes on the show either, sources say. This consideration might also be why the word “Judge” does not appear in the show’s working title. Whether or not her show’s set would resemble a courtroom, however, is still not known.
Personally I am not sure that calling her "Governor" is any better than referring to her as "judge."
Did they consider "Quitter?" Or "Fame whore?" Or perhaps my favorite "Madame Mooseknuckle?"
I wonder if these people realize that typically "Palin rules" are any damn thing she can get away with until the authorities tell her she can't?
I would suggest betting on whether she gets a nibble on the show idea or not, but since we know that Palin will have those Belmonts fully inflated and strapped firmly into place I imagine some poor horny idiot WILL make an offer.
That only leaves the amount of time before she quits or the network pulls the plug up for debate.
