Even though Jon and Kate Plus 8 returned to TLC Monday night, the viewers did not return. The ratings have declined tremendously since the 1 month long hiatus.
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.
Kate Gosselin is “moving” to Maryland according to RadarOnline. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom will be reportedly buying a condo in Rockville, a wealthy part of Montgomery County.
This will be Kate’s residence as she and Jon will be sharing their parenting duties, and custody of the kids at their Pennsylvania home. When one parent stays at the Pennsylvania house with the kids, the other will take off to their individual apartments. Jon is also renting a condo in New York.
Another interesting tidbit, Kate’s new condo will be located just a block away from bodyguard, Steve Neild‘s office in Rockville. For those not familiar with this story, Kate was rumored to be having an affair with Steve not too long ago.

UPDATE – According to RaderOnline, Kate has had a change of heart, and will no longer be moving to Maryland.
