Will You Watch Table for 12?

Last night, TLC premiered its new show, Table for 12, which falls somewhere between Jon and Kate Plus 8 and The Duggars: 18 and Counting. Eric and Betty Hayes have their hands full with two sets of twins, ages 12 and 10, and a set of four-year-old sextuplets that includes a daughter who has cerebral palsy. The down-to-earth couple keeps their sense of humor amid all the chaos. Will you continue to tune in?

I agree %100 with #17 I could not stand Kate any longer. I was not entertained by watching her constant tirades, her refusal to let the children be like normal kids, and SO tired of watching her pack and organize for trips!Its hard to relate to them since she acts like the queen of England and lives like it to. Maddy is constantly throwing a temper tantrum probably because she has watched her mother do it for so long, I can't watch her do it any more they need to put some thought into counseling. The Hayes family is so likable, there are tough times and hectic moments, and crying that's to be expected. They are so compassionate and so are their children to little Rebbecca. They have their hands so much fuller with a handicapped child and more kids. They crack me up the light hearted way they interact. I enjoy watching them! I think they are AMAZING with Rebbecca she is their priority- not lost in the pack, they include her in everything and do as much for her as they can. Its so great to watch a normal family that is interesting. The parents have awesome personalities!This is the family I would rather reflect on when I'm taking care of my family.

Oh and @ skigirl. I know plenty of large families (10+ kids) all natural born. The last guy I dated was the oldest of 13 (and yes they were normal). The tv attraction is the large multiple births, not the fact that they have a big family.

I dvr'd it, also, expecting the train-wreck-tv that is Jon and Kate. But this family is just so genuine, they are real folks, and don't have the we're-better-than-the-world attitude that is the essence of the Gosselins. I just can't watch that show, it's sickening. And these folks seem to handle their family better, they're not perfect and don't try to be. And I definitely applaud their efforts in providing a loving atmosphere for their special needs daughter. If any reality show is truly reality, it's probably this one. Nice job.

I watched this family the other night. The parents are great and they have a great, lighthearted and loving attitude! I like these shows. Much better than the crap that is on some other stations (ahem! Vh1).

TLC really needs to stop encouraging these people....why on Earth, if you already had 4 kids would you feel the need to go and get artificially pregnant again??? It bothers me greatly that TLC constantly rewards people for very selfish behaviours.

I'm sure these people give their children plenty of love. As for having that many kids if they can support them why is it a problem for them to have them. As long as they can support and love their children I don't see it as a problem. Octomom on the other hand is living off the state and that is the problem with her situation. Also they do not ask for these shows they are given to them. Just because big families aren't the norm doesn't mean they are bad.
