There were stories circulating this week that somehow super-grifter Sarah Palin’s “alternative reality show” Baked Alaska was somehow going to end up on the Discovery Channel. The same channel that has given you “Planet Earth” and “Life“, shows featuring the undeniable power of the evolutionary process, was going to give you someone who thinks the first Kentucky Derby winner rode a Jesus-Horse.

But alas, you cannot schedule Sarah Palin before or after “Mythbusters” so Discovery shuttled her off to lesser-light TLC, the network that brings you such quality programming as ‘Hoarding: Buried Alive, ‘Little People, Big World‘, and the Duggars 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and Counting. And it’s great that Palin can come to TLC and save the network because the Duggars are just about out of cipherin’ digits to figure out how many they’ve done birthed.
