Jon and Kate Plus 8 Canceled

It's Time to Bid Adieu to Jon, Kate, and Their 8

Turn out the lights . . . the party's over. The reality show that once focused on a fun-loving and wildly entertaining family is coming to a halt. Jon and Kate Plus 8 captured the hearts of viewers (including our own) all over the country. The adorable children and their parents made the TLC show a hit, but it was the parent's marital demise that made it a phenomenon. While many couples could relate to their bickering, it got to be too much for the Gosselins themselves and eventually led to the announcement of their separation and divorce. As it often happens, things have turned sour and until the two can reconcile differences and iron matters out privately, TLC is turning off the cameras and refusing to air anymore dirty laundry . . . literally.

Perhaps the lack of camera crews will allow the family to focus on what is important and bring some sanity, or at least normalcy, to the wee ones' lives. While 63 percent of LilSugar readers believed the show should be canceled, will you be sad to see it go?

I think it's good that it's ending. I'm so sick of seeing Jon's face, unfortunately we will be seeing it as long as he keeps trying to exploit his children for fame and money. I love how he thinks that TLC filming his children is detrimental, but signing a deal with ET and Insider to film his kids....oh that's ok. Give me a break. He needs to stop talking to the press, for the sake of his children stop talking to the press!

I'll be sad to see the show go but at the same time I feel like it's what is best for the sake of those children.

Jon has really shown how selfish he is. Kate will go on to other things in the media I'm sure, probably on good morning America as a special segment or something. And Jon will be the new punchline of late night talk show hosts.

It was time for the show to go off. I wish those kids nothing but peace and normalcy and I hope that for once those two piss poor excuses for parents finally learn to put their children first. Now Jon needs to take his fat lazy butt out into the real world and get a real job...

YAY, I'm so glad they finally decided to get rid of that show. Let those kids live normal lives already.

I'm so glad the show is canceled.Jon and Kate were not doing it for the kids like they kept saying.They like the fame.Kate needs to go back to nursing and lead a normal life.You can be a nurse with 8 kids.They need to let the kids lead normal lives.

this makes me so happy, its early enough for these kids to have a real childhood, and maybe the parents to get together and be real parents for once.

I think it is time for the show to end as well. I really enjoyed watching the show before all of these recent events happened. I will be sad to see it go, but I think it's gotten out of hand, and the focus needs to be more on the kids moving on with their life and growing to be happy, healthy, and loved.

Good call to end the show. I actually have not watched this season because it was mostly about promoting products they got for free. I hope the children come through this and their parents whatever they choose to do leave them out of television. Really if I never hear about Jon, Kate or the plus 8 again, it would be just fine with me.

thank god. perhaps now the children will have a shot at a normal life... although I doubt that will happen.

Yesssssssssss. I am so tired of seeing the parents all over the place, and hopefully this development will help them focus on their children. Divorce is difficult enough for kids to endure, but these kids really need as much stability and privacy as possible. Hope it works out well for the kids.

Well I used to LOVE this show, especially back in the early years before they were famous and they tried to manage normal family activities with all the kids. But when the marriage broke and the publicity began, the show became very uncomfortable to watch & just bad. I'm glad it's finally cancelled. However I would love to see a special catch up show sometime in the future, maybe in 5 years or so...

i'm sad it is cancelled because i USED to love to watch it...but the past year has been ridiculous and at this point, i'm happy it's over so the kids might get to have some semblance of a normal life as long as their parents man up and be parents instead of fame-chasing losers even before the whole marital trouble thing, the show has turned less about the kids and more about promotion of various crap (like the orange county choppers and the dollhouses etc.) but it used to be so cute
