Discovery Communications is the network supposedly in the lead for capturing Sarah Palin's "Alaska" travelogue.

Remember how we talked up Discovery's "Life" premiere on Sunday? How did you like it? Discovery scored a huge number of viewers (33+ million) with the premiere, we hope some of those people end up giving a crap about the environment and become members of or donate to Audubon, Sierra Club, or a similar organization.
