Jon and Kate Gosselin have something new to quarrel about – shrinking ratings.
The show's Monday night episode –while still doing well for a cable TV show -- continued a steep downward trend in the ratings with a 2.6 share and an estimated 3.4 million viewers.
The numbers stand in stark contrast to the previous week’s season premiere which TLC reported 4 million viewers tuning in.
Consider this: when the happy couple’s problems sprouted up in June, more than 10.6 viewers flocked to their screens to watch the family train wreck in motion.
Still, not all is doomsday in Wernersville, Pennsylvania: the show's current ratings still reside above the watermark of the 3 million viewers it averaged before Jon and Kate's marriage spiraled out-of-control.
Jon & Kate Plus 8 airs Mondays at 9/8c on TLC.
