There hadn’t been a new episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 since June 22 when the pair announced they were divorcing and based on the ratings for Monday night’s return on TLC, there was a lot of pent-up interest in tumultuous life of Jon and Kate Gosselin.

Four million viewers tuned in for the new 9 PM episode and 4.2 million for the new 9:30 PM show.

Although the numbers don’t compare to the big divorce-reveal show, that was an hour-long episode.  These new numbers represent a considerable jump over 30-minute episodes from last season.
