Crazy! TLC just announced that Jon Gosselin will not be returning to Jon & Kate Plus 8 — and the program would undergo a name change, to simply Kate Plus 8.
Still not watching it.
The series first debuted on April 16, 2007, and experienced a ratings spike once the Gosselin marriage became troubled earlier this year. This past season the couple announced they would divorce.
The fifth season premiere attracted a record 9.8 million viewers, making it the most-watched show of that evening including those on broadcast TV.
But after a six-week hiatus from new episodes, only 4.2 million viewers tuned in to see Jon & Kate on Aug. 3, and only 1.7 million reportedly watched last Monday.
Wasn’t Jon working on a bachelor reality show with Michael Lohan? Not watching that one either.
