And the winner is…

You might know this all ready or you might not, but Jennifer Gray won the ABC competition “Dancing with the Stars”. I know the question on your mind is: Where did Bristol place? And, you can find the article that answers that question here.

And, here is the comment I posted there.  I wouldn’t want you to miss it.

And, here we go yet again, spending more time discussing the LOSER of something than the WINNER. Jennifer Gray won the contest both in talent (based on her perfect scores) and in votes. So, why are we discussing Bristol? Why have we decided in this country to celebrate the losers in anything? For another example that proves my point take Sunday’s Green Bay vs Minnesota. The announcers spent so much time discussing Brett Favre and his losing team that they went into a commercial claiming the Vikings were up by 21 points, when they were losing by 21 points. Getting back to DWTS, I have nothing against Bristol Palin but we shouldn’t be discussing her anymore. She lost. Her mother lost an election and she’s in the news every other day. Game over. I’d rather read an article about how Jennifer Gray competed with an injury.

Sarah Palin’s Alaska

It must be Sarah Palin’s day here at Top Of My Head – three articles in one day.  But, the Palins are headline grabbers, so here goes.

According to an article on MSNBC, the ratings for Sarah Palin’s Alaska are down – a lot.  I’m not surprised.  The show received a lot of hype, a lot of attention, Palin is a name, so ratings would be high for the original broadcast.  It isn’t unusual for any reality show to lose viewers.  I was speaking with my friend, Preston, this weekend and he said he couldn’t believe that I wasn’t watching the show.  I told him I wasn’t interested in Sarah Palin’s Alaska.  It isn’t my cup of tea.  To be honest, the show could be called Katie Couric’s Alaska and I still wouldn’t be interested.  I’m not a nature show watcher.

But, the article mentions Andy Almon, Willow’s boyfriend.  I guess he appears on the show, which makes me a little confused.  I thought Sarah Palin’s show was all about Alaska.  A travelogue, if you will, about what to see when you’re in Alaska.  I thought it would show forests and ice flows or whatever it is they have in Alaska.  So, what’s Willow’s boyfriend doing on the show?  How does he work into this?

So, if I’m reading the article right, the show is like “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” mixed with a pretty, woodsy outdoors?

I’m a little more than surprised. I would think that Palin would keep her children out of it as much as possible. A nice nature – come see Alaska – show would probably serve her better than to show family meltdowns and drama.

Am I wrong?
