Open thread: Palin’s TV host debut

10 p.m. ET on Fox News, of course. After not one but two posts on l’affaire LL, my curiosity has been piqued. Especially after learning that there will indeed be an in-studio interview component to the show:
The hour is made up of inspiring people, focusing on everyday heroes from across the spectrum. The ’stock hero’ nature of the stories – helping children, Marine, boy and his dog – doesn’t make each tale tug less at your heartstrings. Many of the stories conclude with short interviews between the key participants and Palin on a set in front of a studio audience, brief interactions that allow Palin, and likely Fox News, a chance to see her flex potential talk show muscles…
Those who love Palin will love this – those who hate her won’t find much to bash, other than to maybe snark the occasional awkwardness in her on-set exchanges. There’s very little doubt the former GOP VP nominee will be an enormous star, and this proves that even further. Maybe she stumbles a bit in interviews, but in this format – awfully similar to an Oprah-like show – she thrives.
Will we see more Palin Fox News specials? You betcha.
The way things are going for Romney these days, he’ll be available to co-host sometime soon. Exit question: Would they or would they not make a picture-perfect morning chat show duo? I ask you.
