TLC offering special theatrical previews of ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska’ in eight cities

The news just keeps getting better and better for supporters of Alaska’s 11th Governor.

Last Tuesday they witnessed the smack down that the GOP administered to the Dems, then they partied all night long due to the aforementioned Election Day conquests (all night in this case equals 10 PM-ish) and now they have a chance to preview TLC’s new documentary Sarah Palin’s Alaska on the big screen aka the moving picture theater.

Once again, according to TLC:
SARAH PALIN'S ALASKA is a new documentary series that takes viewers into the country's 'final frontier' through the eyes of one of its most famous citizens - Sarah Palin. In each episode, various family members join Sarah as she shares the state she knows and loves - from salmon fishing in Bristol Bay to hiking along one of our country's most breathtaking glaciers. Along with Alaska's great wilderness, the Palins encounter Alaska's fascinating residents and share what it takes to thrive in the country's largest state.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your viewpoint, the special screenings will only be showing in the following eight cities on Wednesday Nov. 10 and Thursday Nov. 11: Atlanta, GA; Buffalo, NY; Kansas City, MO; Tulsa, OK; Columbus OH; Houston, TX; Minneapolis, MN; and Phoenix, AZ.

The wait won’t be too long for those who can’t attend the previews though as the series premiers November 14 on TLC at 9 p.m. ET.

If you are interested in tickets to the screenings click the links associated with your city above. (Note some of the city links are not yet active.)

  1. I like your website because of the interesting topics. I am very disappointed today though. Why 'The Dish is Veg' is advertising for a reality show with people who kill moose and slaughter salmon?

  2. "TLC’s new documentary Sarah Palin’s Alaska on the big screen aka the moving picture theater."

  3. Ewww Sarah Palin. -_-

  4. We have covered Sarah Palin on numerous occasions, mainly due to her abysmal animal rights record but in this case it involves a nature show, which we also tend to brush upon frequently.

    It would be quite deluded to believe that all producers, camera operators, sound specialists, hosts etc... connected to nature documentaries are vegans with staunch animal rights views.

    If our measuring stick for stories was that strict our site would devoid of all material. It's just not possible.

  5. This is not a nature show. It is a reality show about a political candidate.

  6. @Eric. I don't believe you're being fair by claiming the previous commenter was making a statement about "all producers, camera operators, sounds specialists, hosts, etc.". They were disappointed that you are highlighting a so-called nature show about Sarah Pain in spite of her "abysmal animal rights record". Although you claim it's not possible, I believe it is actually possible to be more discerning about the content of this site given the interests of most of its readers.

  7. To our Anonymous commenters - - Thanks for reading the site! We have covered Sarah Palin's Alaska from the time we first got word that there would be a show. If you go back and read the original posts, you will see that we are not fans of the show.

    Sarah Palin’s latest venture could be Alaska documentary http://t.co/cRZIogV

    Discovery confirms acquisition of Sarah Palin Alaska documentary http://t.co/P7iM2Gy

    Defenders of Wildlife urges Discovery to pull plug on Sarah Palin show http://t.co/QvKTs9m


    However, just as we cover other nature shows (or reality shows - whatever you want to consider it) from the Discovery Channel and its affiliates, we are covering this one as well.

  8. Especially considering the obvious slant for almost all of our Palin material I find these "anonymous" comments to be completely ludicrous. But that's to be expected.

  9. I think the woman is a flake but I've still followed your coverage of the show. You know what they say, keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
