Bristol Palin's LIFE'S A TRIPP is Ratings Disappointment for Lifetime


The premiere episode of Lifetime's new reality series LIFE'S A TRIPP, which follows the life of Bristol Palin and her young son Tripp, bombed in the Nielsen ratings. According to TVByTheNumbers, almost one million viewers tuned out when the show came on the air for its June 19th premiere. Palin's reality series had an audience of 726,000 total viewers and a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic, while its lead-in, "Dance Moms," had a viewership of 1.8 million viewers.

In 'Life's A Tripp', viewers get the chance to experience the life of one of America's most famous young mothers, Bristol Palin. With never-before-granted access to Bristol's real-life experiences, the show follows her everyday life as a single mother living under intense media scrutiny that comes from her lineage as the daughter of former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.<

The series follows Bristol's move from Wasilla to Los Angeles with Tripp and her sister Willow, and back to Alaska as she deals with parenting and disciplining her toddler without Tripp's father. Giving viewers a unique look at the difficult decisions she has to make for her relationships, career and family, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp will capture how these true-to-life challenges test her resolve as she single-handedly writes the next chapter in her and Tripp's life.
