Jon and Kate Gosselin show becomes Just Kate Plus 8

September 29, 2009

(ChattahBox) — After months of embarrassing tabloid coverage and messy talk show finger-pointing from reality TV couple Jon and Kate Gosselin, whose show chronicled the challenges of raising eight children, something had to give. TLC is now retooling its hit show Jon and Kate Plus 8 to reflect the change: the next season will simply be Kate Plus 8 as of November 2nd.  “Given Jon’s recent antics, there was no way the show could continue to portray him as a doting Dad,“ an insider told People. ”Not while all this other crap was going on.” The dramatic split had initially been ratings gold for the network, but since then the ratings have quite simply imploded: After six-weeks of re-runs, only 4.2-million watched on August 7. And well less than 2-million tuned in last week.

    I can understand why Jon wanted to get away from that OCD bitch. She’s the reason I could never stand to be in the room when my wife watched the show, and why I finally told her either turn it off, or DVR it for later when I was at work.

    very very bad form for Jon to start thinking of his kids when TLC shuts off his gravy train – if he was concerned about the kids his “activities” would not be aired on all of the tabloids for his children and all his children’s friends can see – they are not babies and now they know that since Jon’s paycheck is getting smaller and his reputation down the crapper – NOW he pretends to respect his children’s rights that have been dragged through the tabloids along with Jon and his flavor of the day. If Jon has an ounce of dignity and respect for his children he will GROW UP and act like their father instead of a selfish, full of himself, overaged teenager that he has shown himself to be. FOR THE 1ST TIME IN ALMOST A YEAR THINK OF YOUR KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
