We've seen her hunt caribou (and draw fire from Aaron Sorkin while doing it) and camp out with Kate Gosselin on her TLC show "Sarah Palin's Alaska," but perhaps we haven't seen enough of Sarah Palin's husband, Todd.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Palin has been pitching a new reality series that would train the spotlight on her husband's snowmobile racing career.
The show, like "Palin's Alaska," would be produced by reality vet Mark Burnett, but THR reports that the potential program isn't gaining interest with networks like TLC and A&E.

Roseanne Barr is the latest celebrity to swing her focus towards politics.
Following Matt Damon's critiques of education policy and tax cuts, the actress and star of the Lifetime reality show "Roseanne's Nuts" told Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" Thursday that she's running for president.
No, really. Barr said: "You know Jay, I decided that since you're the one that got Arnold Schwarzenegger elected as governor of California, that I wanted to make my announcement here on your show because I really wanted to ask for your support. My announcement is that I am running for president of the United States."

If you think you’ve heard everything Levi Johnston could possibly say during his 15 minutes of fame, think again.
It turns out that Sarah Palin’s former future son-in-law has enough material on his relationship with the Alaska-based brood to fill an entire book.
Johnston, “best known as Bristol Palin’s baby daddy,” according to a statement, will “set the record straight” in his upcoming text, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs.”

Her parody of Sarah Palin may have been a huge hit on "Saturday Night Live," but Tina Fey believes it actually has hurt the ratings for her NBC series "30 Rock," reports USA Today.
"Some may argue that exploiting Governor Palin and her family helped bring attention to my low-rated TV show," Fey says of "30 Rock" in her just-released book of essays, "Bossypants." "I am proud to say you are wrong."
Fey says the truth is, "My TV show still enjoys very low ratings. In fact, I think the Palin stuff may have hurt the TV show. Let's face it, between Alec Baldwin and me there is a certain 50 percent of the population who think we are pinko Commie monsters."

Sarah Palin wasn't thrilled to find out that Kathy Griffin will play a "Sarah Palin-type" character on "Glee," and now she's bracing herself for Julianne Moore portraying her in the upcoming HBO film "Game Change."
“I think I'll just grit my teeth and bear whatever comes...with that movie,” the former governor of Alaska and vice-presidential candidate told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Thursday. Palin joked that she's happy to provide so many actresses with work but wishes they would share their good fortune.
"I'm all about job creation. And I guess I could provide some of these gals who pretend like they are me some job security," she said. "I would ask, though, if they're of the mind of spreading the wealth around, that perhaps they want to spring for one of my kids' sets of braces or something as they capitalize on pretending to be me."

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, but not when it comes to Kathy Griffin. The comedian is set to play a Sarah Palin-type character on an upcoming episode of "Glee" and Palin says she is hardly amused.
"You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she's kind of this — she's a 50-year-old adult bully, really, is what she is. Kind of a has-been comedian, and she can do those things to me," Palin told Fox News when asked about Griffin's "Glee" guest spot.
But while Palin may be able to take the potshots, she is warning the "My Life on the D List" star to lay off her family, including daughters Bristol and Willow, who have been targeted in the flame-haired comedian's act.
