Tina Fey Says Palin Impressionations Hurt "30 Rock" Ratings

Tina Fey reveals in her new book, "Bossypants", that her infamous impressionations of then-vp candidate Sarah Palin, hurt the ratings for her Emmy-winning comedy "30 Rock".  According to ET online, Tina wrote in her book that instead bolstering her tv ratings, the impressionations made it harder for her show to gain traction with audiences.

She said,

"Some may argue that exploiting Governor Palin and her family helped bring attention to my low-rated TV show," Fey writes (via an excerpt in USA Today). "I am proud to say you are wrong. My TV show still enjoys very low ratings. In fact, I think the Palin stuff may have hurt the TV show. Let's face it, between Alec Baldwin and me there is a certain fifty percent of the population who think we are pinko Commie monsters."

Tina's show, "30 Rock", has been renewed for a sixth season (ratings can't be that bad!).  Tina revealed on Oprah, Wednesday, that she is five months pregnant.  This will be the second child for Tina and her husband Jeff Richmond.  Congrats Tina!
