Gosselins Give ‘Palin's Alaska' Ratings Bump


Sunday night's (Dec. 12) episode of Sarah Palin's Alaska, featuring fellow TLC reality family The Gosselins, topped last week's viewership low, but fell short of the first and third week-numbers, continuing the series roller coaster ride through the ratings.

Alaska earned a 2.1 household rating and 3.1 million total viewers, according to Nielsen fast nationals, up from 2.8 million viewers the prior week.

The reality series has had an uneven performance in the ratings through its first several episodes. After its record-setting 5 million-viewer debut, Alaska fell to 3 million in its second week before it bounced up to 3.5 million in its third.
