Reports may keep pumping bad news for Jon and Kate Gosselin, but the numbers don't lie--Jon & Kate Plus 8 continues to soar in overall ratings and key advertiser demographics.
RadarOnline.com has learned that the back-to-back brand new episodes averaged 5.4 million viewers at 9 p.m. and 5.9 million at 9:30 p.m. The full hour of new episodes saw Kate Gosselin spend her birthday alone while Jon snowboarded in Utah.
Last week's Season 5 hour-long premiere wrangled 9.8 million viewers, the most-watched episode ever for the packed house.
The TLC reality hit dominated all broadcast and cable in shows in female viewers 18-54, and came a shocking second place in men of the same age bracket.
