Maybe Sarah Palin should have been on the top of the ticket.
But, just like the debates, Sarah Palin was the larger draw.
According to NBC, the show averaged a 9.0 rating, 20 share in the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research. In plain English, that means the show did well. Or in Palin speak -- it did doggone good.
McCain's appearance gave the show its second best ratings in 11 years. Second to the show two weeks before that features ... Sarah Palin.
