“The Grizzly is unpredictable — and we’ve got the mother of them all,” The Sportsman Channel said this morning in announcing Sarah Palin will attempt to make her reality TV comeback with a show focused on the outdoors. Amazing America With Sarah Palin will premiere in April on the channel that also features an NRA talk show, Antler Insanity, Personal Defense TV, and a series with rocker Ted Nugent.

The Palin family were Barrymores of reality TV for a period. Palin previously starred in Sarah Palin’s Alaska — it aired for eight episodes starting in 2010 on TLC but was not renewed for a second season though the network called the ratings “solid.” She also showed up regularly in the audience, and was interviewed on camera, when daughter Bristol became an improbable finalist on the 11th edition of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. Husband Todd, meanwhile, starred on NBC’s Stars Earn Stripes. Bristol went on to star in Lifetime’s Bristol Palin: Life’s A Trip and, more recently, returned for the all-star edition of Dancing. Sarah and Todd also pitched a reality series about Todd’s career as a championship snowmobile racer but apparently got no takers, because the show never surfaced.
