Kate Plus Eight

We watched as the relationship of Jon & Kate Gosselin unraveled on our TV screens.


After their divorce announcement this summer, we all wondered what would happen to Jon & Kate Plus 8.

Though the show has continued, Jon's role has gotten smaller. Today, TLC announced that, in November, the series will relaunch and evolve to Kate Plus Eight.

"Given the recent changes in the family dynamics, it only makes sense for us to refresh and recalibrate the program to keep pace with the family.  The family has evolved and we are attempting to evolve with it; we feel that Kate’s journey really resonates with our viewers. Additionally the network is in development on a Kate project for 2010,” states Eileen O’Neill, President of TLC.

Jon will continue to appear on the show, but on a much less regular basis.

redrockswhtsox, an admin of the group Jon & Kate Plus 8 Fans says, "I am disappointed. I had hoped that both Jon and Kate would pursue careers on their own and end the show for the sake of the children. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out."

What do you think of this change? Will you still watch the show? How do you think Jon feels about it?
