Newt Gingrich isn't watching Sarah Palin's TLC reality show "Sarah Palin's Alaska."

When asked Sunday night if he had seen it, the former Speaker responded "No."

However, Gingrich had nothing but praise for the former Alaska governor. Speaking to reporters at the Kennedy Center Honors, Gingrich said Palin would be a "formidable" candidate if she ran for president in 2012.

As to his own presidential ambitions, Gingrich said, "If Callista and I decide I should run, I hope I'll be formidable, too."
