TLC today announced that Jon Gosselin is no longer going to be a regular on the TV show starting Nov. 2. Thus, the show “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ becomes “Kate Plus 8.”
The reality show, after peaking at more than 10 million viewers after the divorce, has seen its audience dwindle to 1.7 million last week. Although the tabs keep them in the headlines, there is clearly “Jon & Kate” fatigue.
Here’s a bit from the press release:
The program will continue to capture the incredible lives of the eight Gosselin children and their family but will now include a deeper focus on Kate’s role in the family and her journey as a single mother building the next chapter in her life. TLC will continue its exclusive relationship with Jon Gosselin and he will continue to appear on the show, but on a less regular basis.
