TLC’s "Jon & Kate Plus 8" will take a break from production, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Next Monday’s episode will be a clip show with some new footage. New episodes will return Aug. 3. Only six new episodes of the show’s 40-episode order have aired so far.
Recent events in the Gosselins’ marriage has forced TLC to finish episodes as late as the day of airing. As a result, the crew does not have enough new footage to put together fresh episodes.
