Did you catch the April Fool's Day broadcast of Fox News' Sarah Palin special, Real American Stories?
- LL Cool J: Fox is "misrepresenting" an interview he "gave in 2008 to someone else" to promote Sarah Palin's show
- "Like LL Cool J, Toby Keith was unaware of his inclusion in Sarah Palin's show"
- Palin uses Toby Keith interview without addressing reports that he was "unaware of his inclusion in Sarah Palin's show"
Well, the ratings are in and as Mediaite's Steve Krakauer notes they were "unspectacular":
Sarah Palin's Fox News Special Garners Unspectacular Ratings
Sarah Palin's much-hyped LL Cool J-less Fox News special last night didn't bring in the huge ratings some (ok, we) predicted. Greta Van Susteren's On The Record which normally airs at 10pm ET beat the program the previous three nights in the A25-54 demographic and two out of three nights in total viewers. The show also lost viewers from the first quarter hour to the final quarter hour by double digits. It did do 28% better in total viewers than the last FNC original special (November 2009).
