Fey: Ridiculing Palin Hurt My Show's Ratings

Tina Fey’s caricature of former vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live may have caused a dip in viewership of her current show, “30 Rock,” she suggests in her new memoir.

“Some may argue that exploiting Governor Palin and her family helped bring attention to my low-rated TV show, 30 Rock,” she writes. “I am proud to say you are wrong…. My TV show still enjoys low ratings. In fact, I think the Palin stuff may have hurt the TV show.”

Fey goes on to write of her and her outspoken liberal costar Alec Baldwin that “there is a certain 50 percent of the population who think we are pinko Commie monsters.”

The show has won several Emmys since its 2006 debut.
