Kate Plus 8: Ratings Success!

Kate Gosselin is here to stay!

Her new reality show special Kate Plus 8 (sans ex Jon Gosselin) pulled in great ratings for TLC on Sunday (June 6).

First episode “6th Birthday Surprise” attracted 3.4 million viewers while “Inside Kate’s Worlds” pulled in 3 million.

    Enjoyed the episode last night! Kate has a strong personality which sometimes comes off the wrong way. However, you almost have to be like that with 8 kids and no husband. Even if you can’t stand Kate, kids are as cute as ever.

    What kind of person turns on the TV and goes “I think I will watch the Kate Plus 8 Show”. You should break your TV(s) right now, your TV is screaming for help.

    LOL – I cannot believe the spin TLC is putting on this. 3 million viewers for a premier episode after all the publicity this woman has gotten over the last year? I will venture most of it was curiosity. She won’t sustain these ratings.

    TLC. What the hell happened to you? From this to that gross Sarah Palin program on Alaska that they are paying her a fortune for… its become such a trashy channel supporting money grubbing hags. Say Yes to the Dress is the only entertaining show left on this channel.

    I’m glad that she got these ratings! These kids have grown in front of the public’s eye, and people like them. She is trying to provide fro her family and is doing what she can. I’m happy for her.

    Kate was nasty when she was married…Kate is just plain nasty…everyone who knows her well knows this is so. Why do you believe she only had to get tough once she became a single parent?

    How did jon and kate get there show in the first place, I’m sure there are more people out there that have more than one kid at a time, you don’t see them using there kids like kate does, you have a nursing degree right. well use it like any other person would do quit using your kids to make yourself rich.

    SickofKate Says:

    OMG I can’t believe how naive people are. That’s why we’re never going to get rid of Kate. She made $500,000.00 for DWTS…she is making millions for the 2 new TLC series. She’s made money from ET for co-hosting. She released a book in didn’t do well but she still made lots of money from it. You want to be concerned about women raising children alone your concern is totally and completely misplaced. I wish people would GET this..what a con the woman is. I think US audiences are idiots..and so we’re stuck with seeing this woman everywhere. She is pretty much the worst of what a modern woman can be. I cannot wait until her children grow up and at least a couple of them will tell her like it is!

    She and her poor, pimped out kids will go on forever. I truly can’t fathom who her audience is and why they would watch. That is why I have a remote! I’ll not be watching kate&8, win a date w/kate, kate finds a mate, what kate ate………. ad nauseam..

    Kate and Jon started calling stations to see if there was any interest in following her pregnancy. They planned to exploit their children from the very beginning….total trash!

    Who cares about Kate? I’m only watching it to see these children grow!

    JMO Says:

    The show will not go on forever. These kids will not stay young forever and when they become young adults people will not care about them (the cute factor will be out the window). So yes Kate may go on to do other things w/out her rugrats but Kate plus 8 only has a few more years of “cuteness” left.
    I happen to not care. I find the show to be more of Kate minus 8. She sort of finds away with that annoying voice to be overbearing on any situation and be the center of attention! Now we know why Mady is the has temper tantrums every episode…the apple doesnt’ fall far from the tree!

    Lauren Says:

    I love Kate and I loved this show. I especially loved the second episode of Kate Plus 8. It was very interesting to see her as a real person with real struggles.

    For those of you who don’t like it – go away. Did you ever think that someone is tracking the hits on this story and the more comments you make, the more popular the story becomes and thus the more popular Kate becomes. Think about it. Also, face it – she is a single mom with 8 kids to provide for. Unless you want to pay her to be on social services, she will have to continue to make the boucoup cash for her family. So shut your mouth.

    Cold Water Says:

    I used to love this show but two things….one, there is no way this is healthy for growing children and ….two, too much Kate and not enough kids. I would love to watch these kids grow but I refuse to contribute to the unhealthy invasion of these growing children, so I say to them from my side of the television, good bye and good luck. You all should too if you care about the future of these children. They get all the bad about being celebrities and very little of its benefits. I even hear the the State of Pennsylvania is the process of enacting child protection laws. (the state they all live in)

    Puffin Says:

    We have watched the show since the beginning and have always loved the little kids. On the one hand, it is fun to watch kids see the wonders of the world for the first time – like their adventures at Sea World. On the other hand, I don’t like their private life exposed, but they know no other life. I have to say that I enjoyed the show without having to see Jon & Kate arguing every two seconds, but now something has to be done about Mady. Can she be removed from the show?
