Is Kate Gosselin's Latest Reality Show 'Kate Plus 8' Really Getting The Boot?

Kate Gosselin has a lot of things to be thankful for — but high ratings isn’t one of them. The rumors are getting louder that TLC is going to cancel both of Kate’s new shows!

Jon Gosselin must be laughing to himself over this news. We’ve been telling you for a while that rumors have been circulating regarding the fate of Kate Gosselin‘s reality show spinoff Kate Plus 8. But now a Fox affiliate in Philadelphia is adding to the speculation about Kate Plus 8 — and the network’s possible decision to shelve her other shot, Twist of Kate, which has yet to air.

The report claims that the Facebook pages for both shows and the TLC website have remained “stagnant” with not much news, and no word on “upcoming listings.”

We’ve told you before that the ratings for Kate Plus 8 have been rapidly dwindling. The series debut brought in 3.4 million, which was strong standing for a Sunday night special, but the second episode on July 11 dropped 33 percent with only 2.2 million viewers. And the Aug. 30 episode fared even worse, attracting only 1.6 million viewers.

Maybe it’s because moms feel like they can’t relate to the former nurse anymore. Now that Kate’s been a diva on Dancing With the Stars, hired a personal bodyguard, and is dressing like a teen, are mommies being turned off?

As much as I dislike Kate, I hope her new show is huge success, as long as the kids are left out of the filming. I will even have my tv on her show to give her ratings.

One of the most selfish narcissists even shown on TV. Never has her kids interests in mind only cares about herself and slutty outfits. Just a horrible mother.
