No shocker here, the Today Show once again beat Good Morning America, with Sarah Palin winning the slot over Katie Couric, who is guest hosting GMA this week, in hopes of reviving her moribund career.
From TV Newser:
NBC’s “Today” show maintained its lead after day two of Katie Couric‘s return to morning TV.
With Sarah Palin as a special co-host “Today” drew 5.497 million total viewers according to Nielsen Fast National data, that’s +356,000 more than #2 “Good Morning America” which drew 5.141 million. Half way through the 2011-12 season, the gap between the two shows is +528,000, so “GMA” continues to chip away at “Today’s lead.
In A25-54 viewers, “Today lead by +249,000 viewers (2.209 vs. 1.917). The season-to-date gap in that demo is +449,000.
The “Today”show also won Monday’s face-off with a +333,000 Total Viewer lead on “GMA.”

Seems as Sarah accomplished what she wanted to. The liberals over at NBC have figured out what we already know about her. She also got her message of common sense Conservatism out to 5.5 million people, many of whom would have never heard it otherwise.
As Andrew Breitbart continually preached, we must win the culture wars if we are to restore our nation. Sarah understands this very well. I hope she does more of these sort of things in the future.
