Attention all Jon & Kate Plus 8 fans: The divorcing Gosselins have been pushed out of their Monday night timeslot by Buddy Valastro, better known as Cake Boss. Buddy is a “cake artist,” and runs Carlo’s City Hall Bake Shop in Hoboken, New Jersey, which was made famous by his late father. Working with Buddy are his mother, four sisters and three-brothers-in-law. If we’re counting correctly, that makes it Buddy Plus 8.
Jon and Kate Gosselin and their kids will return with new episodes August 3. Until then, TLC is hoping viewers will find Cake Boss to be a tasty new viewing treat.
