TLC Announces “Kate Plus Eight”

Pin it


So long, Jon Gosselin. It looks like TLC—along with the rest of the world—has had enough of your douchebaggery.

After weeks of tumbling ratings and a constant barrage of tabloid stories following the stars of “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” TLC is going in a different direction.

Starting in November, the show will be relaunched as “Kate Plus Eight,” TLC revealed Tuesday.

“Given the recent changes in the family dynamics, it only makes sense for us to refresh and recalibrate the program to keep pace with the family,” TLC president Eileen O’Neill said in a statement. “The family has evolved and we are attempting to evolve with it; we feel that Kate’s journey really resonates with our viewers.”

Wow, it’s really sinking in now that that Jon and Kate sex tape is never going to happen.
