Is TLC Ready to Pull the Plug on ‘Jon & Kate’?

Oct 14, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Has TLC had enough of the off-screen shenanigans of the Gosselins that it’s ready to pull the plug on their reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" or "Kate Plus 8" as it was renamed.

The network promos are stating that there only "a limited number of episodes" left, and the New York Post reports that TLC might be tipping their decision to viewers by noting that the show is ending soon.

TLC has refused to talk on the record about the show’s future since Jon Gosselin’s action forced production to shut down.

  1. This would be wonderful but unfortunately I doubt that we would see the end of Jon and Kate just because the show ended. They both seem to like the limelight too much to go away completely.

  2. Isn’t this the first step in the rebranding effort? Goes from “A few episodes left of Jon and Kate + Eight” to “First episode of Kate + Eight!”
    The name change happens Nov. 2. So, technically there is only a few more episodes of Jon & Kate + Eight.
    I think this is the more likely scenario than the network being coy about ending the show.

  3. I wish that the loser Jon would go away. Man is he going to have a child support bill. He’s such an idiot – he lost his income.
