Sacha Baron Cohen is quickly running up a long list of victims on his new show: Former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Alabama politician Roy Moore, the now-resigned Georgia Republican Jason Spencer, and most recently, former Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio.
There is still one individual who many are eagerly waiting to see: Sarah Palin.
Before the show aired, the former Vice President nominee made a big fuss about being duped by Baron Cohen, claiming that he disguised himself as a disabled U.S. veteran.
Naturally, this largely increased the interest in the show, as many were suddenly very compelled to see what exactly made Palin so angry. But now, it’s unclear if the segment with Palin will even air.
“All I can say about that is that there are several people who have thrown themselves in front of buses that may not be heading their way,” Showtime president of programming Gary Levine said about the status of the Palin interview.
He said that Baron Cohen “is always refining” the final product.
Perhaps this is just a smokescreen to make it more of a surprise when Palin shows up on the show, or maybe they really have decided to cut the interview. The latter seems like a potentially risky move in terms of ratings, though. The Jason Spencer clip got more than six million views on Showtime’s YouTube account. The Roy Moore interview received 3.2 million. A segment with Palin would likely exceed both of those, not to mention all the on-demand viewings the show would receive once people heard of her presence.
Fortunately, with or without Palin, Baron Cohen has created a throughout entertaining show where it feels like anything can happen–and anyone might show up. It’s a must-watch experience.
