Sarah Palin's first few days as contributor have given a huge boost to the Fox News Channel's ratings. Fishbowl DC has the Nielsen ratings from her appearance Tuesday night with Bill O'Reilly. The former Governor raked in nearly 4 million viewers with her debut appearance on Fox News's "The Factor." The official count? 3,954,000 people tuned in to watch Palin.
With all that success from her first live hit, why not go big or go home? On last night's appearance with Glenn Beck, the duo pitched an interesting idea--co-host Saturday Night Live. (I'd only watch it if SNL brings Tina Fey back). But that might be just what NBC needs, some news to take to focus off of Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien.
