Palin's Alaska vs. Levi's Alaska

Levi Johnston, Sarah Palin's grandbaby-daddy and the bane of her existence, is pitching his own docu-series in which HE will introduce viewers to Alaska.
The news comes just days after Discovery Networks announced that its TLC network would air "Sarah Palin's Alaska" in which SHE would introduce us to Alaska.
Yes, TV is about to erupt in warring Palin-clan docu-series. Life could not get better.
"If I could wave my magic wand I would want it to premiere at the exact same hour, minute, and second as Sarah Palin's does," Stuart Krasnow, the executive producer of Levi's series, told The TV Column.
Levi's show, tentatively titled "Levi Johnston's Final Frontier," is " 'Jersey Shore' on ice," Krasnow said.
We, however, like to think of it as a much hotter "Ice Road Truckers."
Levi and his pals "put jet fuel in their snowmobiles - they trick them out," the producer said. "They drive Ford pickups. They don't go on the Internet often. That's what we're interested in about him."
Levi, who was foisted upon an unsuspecting public during the 2008 presidential campaign as the fiance of Bristol Palin and father of Bristol's baby, was seen around Los Angeles Monday in an RV that had been gussied up to have "a party-bus kind of feel to it," Krasnow says.
