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.

According to EW, “Both episodes not only posted triple-digit gains over TLC’s second quarter averages in the time period but earned double-digit ratings and delivery gains over the November 2009 airings of Jon and Kate Plus 8.” Wow!

Kate also has a full-fledged reality show debuting this fall called Twist of Kate, where Kate will take on various jobs across America.

TiVo season pass? DONE!

    No I won’t go away, she abused Jon and she abuses her kids, she has ruined their LIVES. Can’t you see that?

    The only thing she loves is fame, not her kids.

    The ratings state that 3.4 million watched Kate last night.. That’s not exactly true…since you must have 2 brain cells to have a functioning synapse it actually makes the number 1.7 million.

    WTF. How about letting the children have a normal life! What do you think should be done with Mady since she has so ruined the entertainment value of this show? Should she be drugged, locked up, or permanently exterminated? Maybe TLC can find a stand-in to take her place. For the love of God…she is a child not an unsightly piece of furniture! Did you actually read what you wrote before posting? On the other hand this fully demonstrates the caliber of people who watch this drivel.

    Where would TLC be without the complete dumbing down of the American population over the last 25 years?

    I didn’t watch!!!!!!
    She is such a liar. She doesn’t do it all herself. She is exploiting her kids just to make money for herself. She has to have enough money now to live a modest life and stay home and raise her kids. Get rid of the expensive house, useless boobyguard, tanning, plastic surgery, fake hair, etc etc etc. Stay home with the kids instead of running around the country. Stay off my tv. I have quit watching the Today show, the View, and ET online and most of TLC now because of her. I have written to sponsors of TLC and her show. I am so sick of her.

    Disgusting narcissist.

    Sick of Kate Says:

    I’m so sick of this media *****! But then again, if TLC is able to get her to do these shows for the sake of ratings and money, then I guess she is a *****. She can be bought. Now lets see her bend over and take more, I’m sure she’s good for another cool half million.

    @a real mom:

    That’s pretty cruel for you to talk about others that way…BTW that behavior only takes 1/2 a brain cell that isn’t even matured!!

    And yes, Cruel is my middle name!

    @TIM GUNN:

    ME, for about 3 minutes. All I heard was Kate and her sarcasm and little shots at everyone. I heard the name Alexis 3 times in those 3 minutes and it was ENOUGH. Nothing has changed except maybe Jon who got OUT!

    Can’t believe she is hugging her boys in the picture above, it will be the only one for the next 25 shows. There they are in their golf shirts and long shorts, the girls in their skirts and sleeveless tops. Nothing has changed except maybe Jon who got OUT.

    Anyone remember when TLC stood for “The Learning Channel”? Now it stands for “Televised Loads of Crap”. Kate and her brood need to be unceremoniously booted from the airwaves and Child Protective Services needs to investigate her (and Jon) for abuse, neglect and pimping out their children for their own personal material gain.

    Neither of them give a damn about the kids. It was all about Jon and Kate. Kate was the worse of the two. She is not a real parent and wouldn’t even know how to react if she wasn’t getting freebies and a salary by selling her kids for cash.

    Absolutely despicable. Maybe if Child Protective Services got involved, these kids could find loving homes where they’d get love and attention instead of used as a marketing device with cameras shoved in their face during their important formative years.

    @Puffin: Your disgusting to even suggest that a child be removed from their family, goes to show ya what absentminded fans she attracts, how dare you make such a remark about a 9 year old, sorry she messed up your viewing as you chomped on your popcorn and washed it down with your cheap beer

    I find it interesting that 3.4 million is considered good: check out this article from the last episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8:

    Once again, the TLC spin machine is working overtime. Looks to me like desparation is setting in.

    I hope you realized how much hate for you is there floating in the atmosphere and that it all catches up to you and you get what you deserve.

So drop on by every week and see what abundance having multiples brings you,,,,,I’ll lay down a few boo hoo poor- me lines,,show you all my great stufff,,,,then watch me enjoy my all expense paid vacations and trips…sprinkle in a bit of conceit, a healthy dose of smack-down codescension, a large portion of the ingrate and THEN ?

    correct me if I am wrong, but haven’t the ratings been cut in half (or more) since the the show’s last season..didn’ they regularly used to get 6 million plus viewers? and this is a highly advertised season premiere.
