Cons:Mrs. Palin’s TLC show lost nearly half its audience after four episodes, and Bristol’s reality show “Life’s a Tripp” was a ratings bust for the Lifetime network.

Odds: 3-1 for “Dancing With the Stars”; 50-1 for everything else. Regardless of political persuasion, it’s safe to assume that most Americans would rather see Mrs. Palin on “DWTS” than former Rep. Tom DeLay. Which, regrettably, really happened.
