Thanks for posting the rating. I'm not seeing any buzz out there. I still cannot believe she got another season.

How incredibly sad that this whole scavenger hunt birthday party (pronounced "the best so far" by Kate and the kids) was missing a key person: Collin. The kids and their friends (5 friends for the girls; 3 friends for the boys) seemed to be having a great time--no mention of Collin; no apparent sadness when all were singing Happy Birthday, even tho both a birthday boy and a father were missing.

Kate very nonchalantly mentions how Collin is in a better place. Then why have such an extravagant, made-for-TV party?? Someday Collin will see this--how will it make him feel???
So sad :-(

On the web entertainment sites, there seems to be a good amount of sympathy for Kate's situation. HUH? However, on the Kate Plus 8 Facebook website, she is being badly attacked and excoriated by most of the posters.

Radar Online posted an interesting article about Collin on Thanksgiving. Who knows if it's true, but supposedly he is 2 hours from home, and Radaronline knows where but is not saying, Visiting hours were extended that day: from 2-4PM, BUT no visitors under 18. So have the rest of the sextuplets not seen him at all, couldn't spend a holiday with him, couldn't share even a private birthday moment with him? If true, is this a prison he's in ? Because the rules don't sound very therapeutic for Collin.

And Kate says he's "where he needs to be." (!!!!!!)

On another note, Mady and Cara sit side by side on the talking heads couch, and for the first two episodes, Mady chats away, complete with eye rolls and sarcasm, and Cara says NOTHING. Concerning. The few times she does speak during the show, she's extremely negative and non-participatory. I still remember watching her enjoy athletic activities with Jon, so something is wrong--I wonder if she sees her father, has contact with him?

I cannot/will not watch this show anymore. That TLC and producers have allowed/continue to allow this woman to have a show is beyond me. Because really it should be called "Aren't I Wonderful, and I Get To Do All The Talking by Kate Gosselin"

Thank you for posting the ratings--I am interested to see them.

Am I missing something? The sextuplets birthday was in May. Collin went inpatient in August but he was in treatment when they had their birthday party. I guess until TLC is ready to film your birthday it is not really your birthday.

Some people criticize the kids and call them names due to their attitude. My feeling is most of the time they look into the camera and think "this is so lame. I can't believe people actual think this stuff is real!"

It is also pathetic but not surprising in Kate's world it is all about her, How sad she is not to have him. Not once did she empathize how her son must be feeling or heaven's forbid she went to see him and did something special to commemorate his birthday. I of course am speculating, I have no idea if she took time to go see him on his birthday, but somehow I doubt it.

If the ratings continue to be this horrible for the show, what are the odds TLC will give her another season?

Irish said...

Yea Cara is pretty negative! She claimed she didn't care about her mother dating or the outside of the house being done over, in previous episodes. She didn't want to help or do ANYTHING and she never talks. I think Mady is the one who seems normal despite teenage attitude. Mady is bubbly and willing to help out and she speaks her mind. I'm sure Cara is just going thru typical teen stuff, because I was like that too, but my gawd, she is hard to watch!!

I didn't get the channel changed quick enough before this freak was on so I decided to watch to see if she was still negatIve Nellie. Sure enough there were all those hateful faces by Drama Mama Kate.


I am thrilled the kids are growing up as I suspect there will be a tell all book or two about what has gone on in tha family and mama ain't gonna be happy about it.

Debbie H said...

So ratings continue to drop with every passing week, as expected- Still don't get WHY TLC gave her another season- unless out of pity- Any chance they will renew her AGAIN with these horrible ratings?

How low will the ratings have to go before they send this show down the drain? Geez!��

ninnie said...

please continue to publish the ratings for kate plus 8

Florida girl said...

I saw a commercial today that said that Kate will be on Dr. Oz tomorrow.

irish33 said...

Boy oh boy in another month they'll be down to 100,000 viewers,I just don't get it why is this show still filming

KuroKunoichi said...

I just saw some footage of the current season, and it really seems like all of the kids dislike Kate. Kate yells a lot when the cameras are rolling; it must be really tiring to be that angry all the time. There's an outdoor archery game the whole family plays and absolutely no one wants to be on a team with Kate, and Kate supposedly does not understand why. Hannah seems especially fed up with her.

I reread "KATE GOSSELIN: How She Fooled The World" recently (The version that still has all of Kate's personal journals in-tact), and holy Christmas, she needs to be off television and seeking professional help. Her upbringing is honestly sad, but she continues to hurt her whole family because she's not working through those issues.

Dear Lord, allow these kids to break away and let them tell their side of the story one day (If they choose).

Kate Gosselin Tells Dr. Oz She's Been PHYSICALLY Hurt By False Tabloid Reports — Oh, And She Remembers To Throw Shade At Jon!

12/15/2016 10:07 AM ET | Filed under: TV News • Health • Kate Gosselin • Dr. Oz • Reality TV • Shade • Daytime TV





7 Reactions





Kate Gosselin is NOT a fan of the tabloids.

And the Kate Plus 8 star makes that fact perfectly clear during her appearance on The Dr. Oz Show. Tell us more!

On Thursday's episode, Miz Gosselin opens up about how false gossip in the media has negatively impacted her over the years.

Related: Jon Gosselin Is Reportedly Seeking Joint Custody!

In fact, in the first of two sneak peeks (above) the mother-of-eight accuses the tabloids of draining her of her "physical energy." Is she sure that isn't from parenting eight kids??

Of course, it wouldn't be an interview with Kate if she didn't also throw shots at her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin. During her sit down, the 41-year-old SLAMS the aspiring DJ for not seeing "the value in uplifting his children". Oh snap!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the shade for yourself (below)!



Catch the rest of Kate's interview today. Take a look at your local listings for deets on the appearance… we doubt you'll regret it!

ninnie said...

what happened? kate has said that she pays no attention to tabloids and it doesn't bother her what people say about her. Which is the truth and which is a lie?

Duggarsbegone said...

Kate's draining of her physical energy is from all the lies she tells. It is physically and mentally exhausting when she has to try to keep all her stories straight. She is a mess. Hopefully she sinks soon.

Heffner Road said...

Happen to be at the Kenny Rogers show last night in Reading Pa...I was sitting right behind John Gosselen...with his mother and I assume girl friend. He must not be broke as each ticket in this area cost $150.00 each...Maybe his mother paid for them... Interesting I only saw one person talk to him...

Janine Bolton said...

I try with ALL of my might to never look at anything Gosselin, however, I couldn't avert my eyes in time to see a cover story on People magazine. How does she do this? Same old same old... except Collin was NOT in the photo. She is a monster. I hate that she is still finding ways to pimp her kids out to stay in this lifestyle. She is clearly still a narcissist and I suppose a sociopath. Jon, shame on you for not fighting for these kids. I don't care what it would take. Find the money. Evidently it isn't worth it to try and help his kids. 8 little messes. They will all be in tabloids for the rest of their lives (thanks k8). Collin being cast away into the system is destroying him (as a mother whose child was ripped from her arms can testify to). It isn't helping the other 7 to know that could be them if they don't keep bringing home the bacon. I'm livid. I will not contribute to her insanity. I came back here to see what was going on. I would have hoped the need for a place such as this was no longer relevant. Make her go away. I pray for her kids. So unbelievably horrible.

Deborah Cohen said...

I am so disgusted with Kate and how she is handling the situation with Colin. With that being said, the episodes have been so boring. Notice how TLC is not splurging for expensive trips anymore???

Nope. They don't continue to drop. This week's ratings were just under a million, 916,000 viewers, which should make TLC somewhat happy. Ratings were up again last week. With those numbers, unfortunately, I doubt if TLC will pull the plug.

Irish 33 said...

No matter how you slice it under 1 million viewers with an 03 are God awful numbers but I'll be curious how the final does....I'm sure America wants at least 1 more year of the family packing up an going on yet more freebies

Debbie H said...

God, please don't let her ratings be artificially high again because of some show before hers on TLC- THAT is what made them renew her show LAST time when ratings were horrible( but still far better than this season)- Had it not been for her show following Whitney Thore's show last season, her ratings would have never been that good-

Debbie H said...

Summerwind- at the time I posted the comment you responded to about ratings, they had consistently dropped with every show- ONLY with the last 2 shows did they improve somewhat- 650,000 is HORRIBLE- granted she had ONE with 900,000 viewers, and I have no doubt that was because of the show previous to the kate plus 8-(maybe they should rename it more accurately Kate plus 7 now)-Was last show the finale? Maybe they would account for some of the extra 300,000 viewers? Anyway, the show hasn't gotten better, so hopefully the ratings will stay in the tank and TLC will finally figure out they could do several other shows in her place that would do MUCH better!

HEFFNER ROAD said...

THANK GOODNESS ITS HER LAST SHOW OF THE SEASON....HOPE TLC DUMPS HER....CANT STAND HER....AND THE KIDS ARE BRATS...

Duggarsbegone said...

I believe next week (1/10) is the last show of the season and they will be recapping the last 10 years. UGH.
