Kate can’t keep the ratings up without Jon! What is she going to do?

Has Kate Gosselin lost her ratings mojo? “Twist of Kate is canceled,” a source tells Life & Style magazine. “It’s no longer on the schedule because Kate can’t bring in the ratings.”

Despite Twist of Kate‘s cancellation, TLC reps say, “Neither show has been canceled! In fact, the next Kate Plus 8 special airs Nov. 28.” They didn’t mention Twist of Kate.

The June 22, 2009 episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 registered 10.6 million viewers, but since the show dropped Kate‘s ex-husband Jon Gosselin, the ratings have plummeted. Ratings for the most recent episode of Kate Plus 8 banked on Kate’s trip to Alaska, but it failed. It only brought in 1.3 million viewers, the lowest number yet for the show!

It’s interesting that total strangers are so sure that she is a victim and what is said about her is all lies. She chose to go after a public life in the entertainment industry and there are no gaurantees. She also chose to live at the level she is living. We are all responsible for the outcome of our choices and behavior. There are many much more genuinely talented performers who go months or years without work. It’s part of the industry. There are millions in the U.S. who are dealing with much worse right now with much less. I wish her luck.

I support Kate. I don’t support this source spreading these lies about her to tabloids, sounds like something her lazy ex would do beings he has no job and is jealous of Kate. Too bad he bit the hand that fed him and hurt his family like he did with such nasty legacy of antics.

I hope it does get canceled! Children shouldn’t star in reality TV. Do you think children should star in reality TV?

NO, NO WAY, NEVER EVER THEY SHOULD ONLY BE IN PORN DER FUHRER! Of course they should be on reality TV you douche bag. How else are these kids going to come up with the dough for continuing education? I’m with Frann on this one. If the kids are the attraction then they should take advantage of all opportunity that knocks.
If you had a child prodigy like Emily Bear (look her up on youtube) Would you not benefit your family with all of the good things they could have? If you answer no you are a LIAR and probably tried it ONCE in college but did not inhale!
At least agree that although KG is prospering from this her children are also WAY better off?

I will watch anything she is in. She is a mother trying to make a life for her kids. Lots of kids have to help their parents when it is impossible for the parent to do it alone…no child support you know. I helped my folks and don’t regret it one bit.

If you dislike her so much why are you googling for articles on her to post your dislike.

Don’t like her then don’t watch or read about her.

You haters are dumb, you spend so much of your time hating her, when you could go do fun things you enjoy with your time instead.

Oh but that is the thing, you LOVE to hate her. Hating her makes you feel less inadequate. Hating her occupies your mind so that you don’t have to think about how pathetic your life has become.

Duh, go get a life and you would not hate her because you don’t have one and she does.

I felt sick reading your post, yes I agree this lady and her kids are massively annoying, but do you realize you called yourself a ‘hater’ against a mother and her kids? Do you also realize you are gaining a pleasurable feeling in your soul, which is possibly black, from a woman, that you don’t know, or her children, source of income and way of life going splat? Dude, you need to seriously get a life, and start praying that when your life goes splat,which it most likely will, most people go thru it, you have people around you who are reaching out their hand to help you up, rather than laughing at you and enjoying your free fall.
Some advice would be to find something positive in this world, like helping the environment, animals, sick kids, anything that gives you that pleasurable feeling in your soul and makes you a better person.

I agree Mel! You see, I am almost certain that “CHARL” is bed ridden from obesity, in search of the granddaddy of all twinkies, hooked on Springer Reruns and has alienated everyone around her.
After all: Our thoughts and expectations wield tremendous power and influence in our lives. We don’t always get what we deserve in life but we usually get no more than what we expect. We receive what we believe. Unfortunately this concept works as strongly in the negative as it does in the positive. If we choose to stay focused on negative elements in our life, If we focus on what we can’t do and what we don’t have then by our own choice we are agreeing to be defeated. We are conspiring with the enemy by opening the door and allowing destructive thoughts, words, actions and attitudes to dominate our lives. Know this, GOD (the little voice, you know the one) will help guide us, but it is us and us alone who cast the deciding vote.
CHAR, stop being so negative and maybe you will get off of the couch!

Something is wrong about Twist of Kate. Origninally TLC said it was due in the “spring”, then ‘late summer, early fall’, then “October”, then “December.” IF they had a money maker, would they hold it back? Nope, they would not. Either the demo rated pretty badly, or they can’t find enough “fans” with hard luck stories. or something… I DO hope she does have a show that stars HER only. Then she can stop filming the kids.

“to cbt” your comment is bang on. If anyone watched the show they would see that what you are saying is the truth. But the sad thing is the sheeple are somehow brainwashed or just have a rotten judge of character. She is a liar and a fraud. I can’t wait till she disappears and I hope Jon gets the kids!

I like how people jump on the Jon sucks as a father bandwagon by bringing up his cheating BUT conveniently forget that Kate NEVER SAID HE DID. In all the post divorce interviews she never confirmed it. She never disputed that at the time he was sleeping in the garage apartment AND that their marriage was already over. When he said he asked to go to counseling but she refused SHE NEVER DISPUTED THAT EITHER. Here’s a man who wanted the show to end & work on his marriage to a woman who CLEARLY put fame over her family/marriage to the point where she felt she could do it on her own. Well here she is & it’s not working out so well for her.

Shame on TLC for knowing their marriage was in trouble & instead of pushing them to do everything possible to make it work all they did was create more hostility & tension by shoving Jon out then forbidding him to do anything else. He is the better parent for trying to keep his promise (their opening motto) to their kids whereas Kate showed that wasn’t a promise she was actually willing to keep.

Jon is the worst parent on the planet, hands down. What part of abandoning his kids for months, sleeping with several women while married, getting drunk and stoned in public and making tapes of himself farting while plastered, taking a huge amount of unauthorized money from the family account, stealing money from a girlfriend, filing false police reports about his apartment being trashed, refusing to get a job and playing farmville and other computer games all day, getting a one bedroom apartment for himself and all 8 kids, and selling terrible private pictures and stories of his kids to the press, makes him a GOOD father?

Seriously CBT, you need to get off this page and stop power voting against Kate (lol!loser!) and do a reality check on your brain.

I guess you think it was OK for Kate to choose Steve over Jon for over a year before their divorce.

And the ratings will drop even lower. Sometimes things just aren’t meant to be, especially when it comes down to child abuse. Obviously Jon is the better parent here. I think Jon should have a show with the kids and watch the ratings go up. We want Jon! We want Jon! Go away Kate, nobody likes a mommy dearest!!!!!

IMO they’re both pretty crappy parents, Jon is just the lesser of two evils.
