It has been quite a while since a new item was posted here.

I think that Jon & Kate plus 8 has gone the way of the dinosaur. The final straw was probably the dressing up in play outfits while Kate watched from a mattress. Maddy stomped around. Alexis screamed at the top of her lungs. Neither one was disciplined at all. But Lord knows what poor Joel did to rate the death stare (play favorites much, Kate?). Kate gave Jon orders ("I want these kids in bed in 20 minutes"). I'm not sure which would be more exciting -- watching grass grow or paint dry.

Tooth whitening? Jon and Kate dining out without the kids? What in the world are the producers/writers thinking? (I actually doubt that they ARE thinking.) There is no way on earth that they are going to be able to prolong this show for another 40 episodes.

I doubt very much that anyone really cares any more. It is totally unpleasant (not to mention boring) to view this show. As they say in "the business," the show has jumped the shark.
