review by . June 24, 2009
I have never seen this show...but I know way too much about John and Kate.  When I go to the market and am checking out, I can't help but notice that John and Kate are on the cover of every magazine. They are also all over the internet (I am not talking about tmz or gossip sites...but MSN and Yahoo) and television (again, I don't watch Extra...but they are showing up everywhere).    What is the deal? I gather that they were "regular people" who had a lot of kids. I also …

Jon and Kate, as you learn from the opening credits of TLC's series "Jon & Kate Plus Eight," began with a set of twins: Cara and Mady.  Jon and Kate decided to go for one more, and ended up with sextuplets.    Ordinarily, I don't know if I can handle a show with such high volumes of shrieking and crying (I'm not a Kindergarten teacher for a reason), but Jon and Kate are so normal and handle their frustrations with such good nature (without hiding their irritation) that …

Jon & Kate plus 8
I love love love this show. Why? Families have always intrigued me - the dynamics between everyone, how they are different or similar, the size of the family, etc. This family - a mom, dad, twins, and sextuplets (hence Jon & Kate Plus 8), are obviously out of the norm, and thus, more intriguing. Granted, there are more reality shows with families that are even larger, but this particular family strikes me as more in touch with modern times. They're not home-schooled, overtly religious, or living …

About this tv show

Wiki

Jon & Kate Plus 8 (also known as Jon & Kate Plus Eight and stylized on the title card as Jon & Kate Plus Ei8ht) is a reality television show produced in the United States by Figure 8 Films about the Gosselin family, consisting of parents Jon and Kate and their eight children: fraternal twins and sextuplets. The show follows the family through their daily lives, focusing on the challenges of raising multiple children, and the many things they do together like day trips etc. The show originally aired on Discovery Health, but has aired on TLC since season 3. The show was one of the highest rated programs on TLC during its run and the fifth season premiere was seen by a record 9.8 million viewers, the most watched show of that evening including broadcast television, twice as many viewers as the show’s previous series high. The family originally appeared in two one-hour specials titled Surviving Sextuplets and Twins and Surviving Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later.

On September 29, 2009, TLC announced that as of November 2, the program would undergo a name change, to Kate Plus Eight. The series would focus on Kate as a single mother raising eight children. Despite the new title, Jon Gosselin would continue to appear on the show, just less frequently. TLC announced that filming the children had been suspended, due to lawyers for Jon Gosselin delivering letters to TLC demanding that they cease and desist production and barred production crews from the couple's ...
