No More 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' for Sarah Palin or Alaska

There's more bad news for Sarah Palin, who had to shut down her online map featuring gun crosshairs over Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' Arizona district this weekend. Now her reality show has been canceled after only one season.
The show followed Palin and her family as they traveled to some of the most beautiful locations in the state. In this week's final episode, she rode a four-wheeler through Nome to an isolated stretch of beach where gold is often found.
But, despite the beautiful scenery, Palin also found herself under fire for hunting caribou with her dad and shooting guns with her kids, y'know, because nothing says family fun like a little bloodshed.
Sarah Palin's Alaska debuted with more than 5 million viewers, but by the second episode the audience had dropped to only 3.2 million, though it hasn't been confirmed that the drop is why the show won't return. There's been speculation that Sarah was the one who bowed out so she can start planning her 2012 run for the presidency and spare TLC the hassle of having to provide other candidates with equal-access airtime.
Were you watching Sarah Palin's Alaska? We haven't heard of one person yet that's seen it...so just asking.
