'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: No season two for 'Palin's Alaska'?

What’s going on with Sarah Palin? It seems that Sunday’s 2-hour season finale of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” may be the final episode – ever!

According to reports, the reality show won't return for a second season. (TLC declined to comment about the reports.)

And if it is ending, it's unclear who called it quits – Sarah Palin or TLC. But it’s raising lots of questions about whether this could mean that the former Gov. of Alaska is gearing up for a 2012 Presidential bid.

I do think that if Sarah’s going to be getting back into politics, it’s a good idea for her to leave reality TV.

Besides, if she did run for president and continued her reality show, TLC would have to offer equal air time to her rivals too! Hey, that could be kind of interesting though – dueling candidate reality shows! But what do you think? Should "Sarah Palin's Alaska" get a second season? Post your comments below.

Other big Hollywood stories I’m covering today…

There's going to be more Gwyneth Paltrow on “Glee," and there's a “Jersey Shore” video showdown: the guys vs. the girls! Plus, do you love or hate Lindsay's super-blond look?

See you today at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN…

    Thank God that show is off. Quite frankly the shooting at AZ was sad but that mental nut shot the wrong person. Sorry for being so heartless but he would have done us all a favor if it was Sara Palin. Umm that shooting scared her because she is not liked much.

    I actually and surprisingly liked the series. She was a wonderful ambassador for the advertisement of Alaska. I really can't wait to visit that beautiful state. My opinion has nothing to do with whether or not I would support her aspirations to the presidency. I am now just more inclined to visit Alaska!

    And.... regarding the 7 missed shots, yeah, so what, the rifle wasn't sighted properly. Although I would have exchanged rifles at shot number 2!

    She has done more for female outdoorsmen in one season than anyone in recent history!

    I don't believe it was designed for a second season. The show took viewers to see some of the most beautiful, rarely seen on TV and quite insightful to the Alaskan lifestyle.

      You're right. TLC said from the beginning that it was a one time show.

      Can she finish one thing she starts. Why did her PAC people take off those images of gun targets off their website following the Tucson Shooting. If they say there is no relation from their rhetoric etc, why "retreat " -( in her own words). And now as she is saying there will be no season 2 for her reality show. was she dissed by TLC because of her rhetorics leading to the tragedy in Tucson? Or this is just a political ploy. i think. Hon Gabby forewarned them but they did not pay attention and now look what happened. Only God can save her now as she fights for her life. PAC, is this what you wanted? remember, you never know where you are when you go to bed. Who watches over you. My sympathy to all affected families. GABBY, GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE.
