“We’ve had a great run! Six years of whirlwind funfilled adventures thanks to TLC and our many many supportive &diehard fans! While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future!

Kate Plus 8 has been canceled!
The spin off from Jon & Kate Plus 8, the show that made Kate a national obsession, has been struggling in the ratings, and TLC has decided to pull the plug.
“TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8,” the cable net announced Monday. ”By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.”
