Last night marked the end of an era for one of TV's most talked about families. The series finale of Jon and Kate Plus 8 aired after five seasons on TLC and showed the separated couple striving to be single parents. While this past year has been filled with loud headlines about the bunch, the show went out on a high note — reminding viewers that at the end of the day, it was about the great eight kids Jon and Kate had together. We've followed the crew's moves on and off the small screen for years so we were sad to see the show end. Did you tune in to bid adieu to the family?
