The Sportsman Channel is ordering a second season of Amazing America with Sarah Palin, but the political star has thoughts about another show that might be a good fit for her.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Palin was asked if she’d be interested in doing a political/talk show. Her response was enthusiastic:

    “It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio.”

and:

    “I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.”

Wink, wink!

There are lots of open seats at the Hot Topics table. Whoopi Goldberg is the only one set to come back when The View starts a new season on Sept. 15.

On Monday’s View,  Jenny McCarthy confirmed her exit, saying,

    “After much consideration, I’ve taken a new job that will allow me to do what I do best, which is to talk without interrupting anyone. So stay tuned … even if it does compete with The View.”

And a teary Sherri Shepherd said she has known was going to depart since the spring, but kept it quiet because she “didn’t want to do anything to distract from Barbara Walters and her retirement in May.”
