You Should Have Kept Kate On ‘DWTS… Ratings Are Down Since Her Departure!

Tue, April 27, 2010 2:54pm EST by 69 Comments

Now that Kate Gosselin is no longer hot-footing it on Dancing With the Stars, the show’s ratings have marginally decreased. See, America? Gosselin sells!

We said told America would regret kicking Kate Gosselin off Dancing With the Stars, and we were right! Just one week after her April 19 departure, the hit ABC show’s ratings were down by .7 million viewers April 26!

Despite Kate’s crappy dancing, we were all pulling for her. The 35-year-old said she was dancing so her brood of eight would be proud — how can you not love that? Regardless, mama Gosselin (as well as partner Tony Dovolani ) was given the boot on April 20, and with her departure came a decrease in ratings. Last Monday, numbers were at 20.0 million viewers, while this week 19.3 million tuned in.

The proof is in the numbers, people! America loves Kate Gosselin! If you’re not a fan, you better become one FAST, as she’s got two shows premiering later this year (Twist of Kate debuts this summer, while Kate Plus 8 hits TLC in November).

In summary: Kate is great for numbers!

RE: Kate and Batchelor Jake on DWTS:

It isn’t “Dancing With The Stars” any more, it’s “ABC’s Reality Show Dep’t. Runs the Station and We Will Tell You What TO Watch”.

We are not watching this season – we’ve seen too, too, too much of them.

The girl was stiff and not a good dancer. The remaining couples are good, but Kate cant fit in with them. How could she have gone longer? Have we lost what the show stands for. Good dancing.

She danced like she had a stick up her butt. Oh and how many weeks was she gone from her kids. She is a TV HOUND, loves attention. Oh and the picture above looks to be air brushed. Kate get a life and take care of your family.

STOP IT,STOP IT.
I stopped watch DWTS when she was on, my mom and I had to call one another to keep us busy so we wouldnt watch, now were watching. I dont believe it is down, and if it is it is because we all figured out the voting was fixed and TLC welded to much power since they had to promote 2 shows of hers. YOu feed her hateful personality saying crap like this, shame on you. Let her go away. You have no idea what she does to make christians forget they are christians, there isnt a bone in her body that loves anything but her unmentionable ways to fame.

Im watching it more now that she is gone. It pained me to watch her try to dance. She does not have a graceful bone in her body. Dancing is not for her! Thank you DWTS for ridding of her.

Let her be, maybe then she’ll go out and have to find herself a real job.

According to you “DWTS – KHate Gosselin = 0″ …. There is definitely something wrong with YOUR math skills! A lousy >4% drop off does not equal a mass exdous. I’m pretty sure DWTS did not drop off the Nielsen top ten.

ADD TO THAT THE FACT YOU ALSO “DOCTORED” the numbers. FOR WHAT … to make it look like Kate Gosselin is a STAR? The actual numbers were 21mil down 20.3mil making it 3% .. a mere pitiful pittance compared to the margins you were trying to “makeup”.

I’m so glad she’s gone, I don’t know how she lasted as long as she did, I swear she seemed to be in lala land or on valium. She can’t dance and she did whine a lot, so bye bye Kate, take care of your kids now!

only reason the rating were up when that fat bitch was on is because people could not wait to see her get voted off, not to mention she could not dance her way out of a wet paper bag, people only wanted to see her fail, and we all know that she did, and once again wanted to turn on the water works, this bitch should NEVER be on TV, she is a Pennsylvania hick with donated boobs and dental work, no more no less!! We all HATE you kate, cant wait to see you fall on your fat ass on your next venture, its just so amusing to this Pennsylvania local to see her make such an ass out of her self!!

Before Gosselins bought new home surrounded by large grounds – when living in ordinary neighborhood – their cars in driveway were vandalized and people and papps were constantly trying to take pictures, even thru their windows. Also, they had to worry about safety of their 8 kids. clock can’t ever be turned back! There always will be much interest in how their children are doing as they grow up. Maybe morbid interest to see if they’ve all turned into little criminals/drug addicts. The new house with acreage provides the kids much more security than any house with less land surrounding it ever could. Much easier to protect. Also, no neighbors are going to like having media/papps and the curious constantly invading neighborhood and street. The 8 kids have already had enough major disruptions in their lives. It would be cruel to jerk them out of a safe, secure comfortable environment. At least they have a self-contained rather lavish roof over their heads they can think of as “home” no matter how nutty their parents act.

Why would you have to chose between Idol and DWTS? The dance portion is on Monday night. The singing portion of Idol is on Tuesday night. Why can’t you watch both. I tape the “voting off” portion of DWTS that comes on Tuesday night. I don’t know how they can say that Idol has lost viewers to DWTS this year. Most people who like both do just what I do. They are both better than anything else on television (in my opinion).

Let me get this right..
America is supposed tobe pulling for a woman who birthed
the human equivalent of a litter–knowing full well she
and her husband couldn’t care for them AND a set of
twins who were already here.

Then they sell themselves,their kids and souls to a
reality TV show–which became more popular than anyone
ever imagined.

Neither one of them could handle the 15-minutes of fame
the show brought–so now the American public has to deal with two uuseless, manipulative, passice-aggressive
people who have developed a sense of entitlement.

I think that Kate chick needs to get beyond herself and stop behaving on the put-upon mom. More women do more adn do better with much less than she has.

And Jon needs to grow a set, get a job and behave like a grown man instead of horny teen-ager.

Kate wanted another baby. ONE more baby. Jon was content with the twins, but finally agreed. Since she has trouble getting pregnant, she had fertility treatments. Last time, she wound up with twins; this time, ALL the embryos implanted in her took. There were 7; one died in the womb. They did not deliberately set out to have twins and sextuplets.

and lets not forget the REAL reason he lost his job, on the TV show it was said he was let go because the company he was working for would not cover the kinds on there medical insurance, this is a flat out lie, jon lost his job because he was caught stealing from the company…. he is a lazy POS and kate is the biggest opportunstic bitch to ever walk

You are so right. There were 9 kids in our family & my parents didn’t ask for ANY handouts. We were their responsibility & they never whined about being owed anything. The Gosselins created their life, now they need to act like responsible adults and deal with getting REAL jobs and supporting them like a “NORMAL” family.(and my mother didn’t even work)

i think kate gosselin is terrific. if it wasn’t for her her family would be on food stamps. she picked a loser of a husband, but single handedly hit it big. jon couldn’t pick his way out of a shopping bag. he couldn’t wait to hit the young girls, the bars and anyone who would or could do something for him. he wasn’t such a devoted dad then, spending his money on gifts for his girlfriends. kate supported her family by going on tv, writing books, signing autographs she absolutely amazes me. she admitted not being a dancer, but had the guts to do it, while her gutless ex was saying she’s not a good mom. he was prancing around doing nothing while she did all she could to support her kids. there are millions of single moms that have to work 1 job, 2 jobs some even 3 jobs to support their kids. critics are ridiculous to say the things they say, i think she’s a hell of a mom who loves her family..

I think the best thing was to get rid of Kate. She should of been the 1st to go. She can not dance. This is a show about dancing. She got on there and whined and looked for pity.
I know alot of people are very happy that she is gone.

She has always said she was not a dancer. She cannot dance at all. I have never seen anyone who has no rhythm and no feel for music at all, as she does. She knows it, and yet, she signed up for the show and put herself out there, on national TV, knowing she looked terrible. She did it for the income it would bring. She got a lot of money from that show. She did not “whine and look for pity.” She wanted to stay on as long as possible to get as much money as possible. Would’t you feel the same? It’s not like she committed a crime or did anything immoral. She was working. That’s it.

I agree. my same thoughts. I watched to see her go. I never watched their reality show and quite frankly wanted to see what all the deal was about. I’m a mom and she wouldn’t be on food stamps if she spent more time at home with her kids. This isn’t like she has one kid she has eight and they are getting ready to hit the more needy time of life, the teens. She needs to be available. I have kids to raise too, it is expensive. But they could sell their house and move down a bit and still be able to live decently. She will never have the opportunity to get that time with her kids back. Work from home.

I agree she could sell the house. In fact, I don’t think they should ever have bought that huge house in the first place. The house they had had 5 bedrooms and that playroom downstairs. It would have been fine. Many people with lots of kids have less. That said, she still would have needed a huge amount of money to feed, clothe, and educate her kids. What about medical costs? Dental? Medial and dental costs are always ongoing, for wellness check-ups and in case they come down with something. You think “working from home” is going to pay for all that? No way. Millions of mothers can’t “be available” for their kids because they have to work. It’s a pity, I agree, because they won’t ever get back the time. That’s how the world is, though. You do what you need to do to keep going.

Dear Laura,
If the public keeps watching this train wreck of a woman our society is showing how stupid they are…and the media keeps reporting on her…Shame on you…Kate has not been able to maintain one healthy relationship…Her family, parents, brothers, sister, husband,friends, etc…This is not a woman I want my children watching…Kate just shows what is wrong with our society today…A woman who will sell out her children for fame…Very Sad…

Your surmise is faulty! America DOES NOT love Kate Gosselin .. I don’t think I saw one positive post or heard one positive comment about her except from the hard-core “Mommy” set, and all they identified with is that she has given birth, NOT her dancing, and certainly NOT her personality. What America loves is watching a train wreck. Every week, the question was “how bad will she be?” “how unattractive will she look?” and “what sulky, pandering and maudlin thing will she do?” Now there’s only dancing on a dancing show — imagine that! How boring ..

Kate is a nasty bitch. Did you see how she treated Jon, when they would go shopping or to an amusement-park? She does not know how to talk to him in a normal tone. She would talk down to him & treat him like a dog. She demanded more money on DWTS, than Pam Anderson. Kate is not a star & she should not be treated like one. She is more interested in her beauty & her plastic surgeries, her fake boobs, teeth & her fake hair. Before going on DWTS she had $30,000 worth of work done, besides the work that she had done previously. She was not happy when dancing.I can really say people hate her & she should not be put on a pedistal. Go away Kate . Please, I can’t take anymore.
