According to USmagazine, the return of Jon & Kate Plus 8 brought in less than half the audience of the show’s previous episode.
The first half hour of Monday’s show showed Kate and the kids vacationing while Jon supervised their kitchen renovation, the second hour showed Kate camping with the kids without Jon. Both episodes drew 3.9 and 4.1 million viewers respectively.
The May 25 premiere brought about 9.8 million viewers so this is a significant drop. It may be time for TLC to pull the plug on this show.
