    Jon and Kate plus Eight

    How many people do you think would tune in to watch parents fight, surprising 9.8 million people. “Jon and Kate plus Eight,” is a television reality show that started off with two hour long specials called, “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins” and “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later.” After being picked up as a show by Discovery Health, it was transferred to TLC during its 3rd season. In April 2009, tabloids around the country began reporting that Jon Gosselin was having an affair; the happy television family had somehow become front-page news. The fifth season premiere of the show attracted 9.8 million viewers since it was stated in the commercials that Jon and Kate were going to discuss their “situation.” It wasn’t until a few episodes later that they announced their separation. It was originally stated by TLC that on November 2, 2009 the show would receive a name change to “Kate plus Eight,” although two days later after the announcement, TLC received a cease and desist order from Jon’s attorneys. Filming has been suspended and the remaining of the season is currently dropped.

    It’s ironic how TLC is marketed as “The Learning Channel,” but all you learn in “Jon and Kate plus Eight,” is how to use your children to earn a living. Before the show become more important then the war in Iraq or healthcare reform, it was a sweet show about raising eight children, while having to deal with the stress of a real world job. Many people have attacked Kate Gosselin, arguing that she was exploiting the children by wanting to continue the show. Since there are child labor laws in place, does working on a show count as labor to the children? The truth is that both Jon and Kate have some growing up to do before they start up the show again. TLC should just leave the couple to work things out, before they try making a profit out off of the show again. TLC should start focusing its attention on its other family related shows, such as, “18 Kids in Counting,” and “Table for 12.”

    Statistically speaking Jon and Kate plus Eight has aired 112 episodes with three specials. The show is produced by Figure 8 films and Advanced Medical Productions. The show is currently suspended and if the series is not picked up again, TLC will begin showing a series of specials on the Gosselin’s life. The show has released four DVDs with the fifth season coming out early 2010. Kate Gosselin has written two books, with her book, “Multiple Blessings,” reaching the New York Times best-sellers for the week of its release. The family is currently managed by Media Motion International in Los Angeles. Light fixtures and wires have been permanently installed into the Gosselin’s home, as well as a filming set to make it easier to produce the show. Before the divorce, both Jon and Kate were close friends with the production crew, even going so far to call them part of the family. The future of the show is currently unknown, but even though, has anyone ever reported how the children feel about this, instead of just Jon and Kate?

    How many people do you think would tune in to watch parents fight, surprising 9.8 million people. [How many people do you think would tune in to watch parents fight? Surprisingly, nearly ten million (we don't usually use decimal numbers) people would.] “Jon and Kate plus Eight,[deleted comma]” is a television reality show that started off with two hour long [It sounds like you're saying specials that were two hours long. I would say "two hour-long] specials called, “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins” and “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later.” After being picked up as a show by Discovery Health, it was transferred to TLC during its 3rd season. In April 2009, tabloids around the country began reporting that Jon Gosselin was having an affair; the happy television family had somehow become front-page news. The fifth season premiere of the show attracted 9.8 [again, we don't usually use numbers as specific as decimals] million viewers since it was stated in the commercials that Jon and Kate [when you first introduce someone use their full name] were going to discuss their “situation.” It wasn’t until a few episodes later that they announced their separation. It was originally stated by TLC that on November 2, 2009 [replace "on November 2, 2009" with Nov. 2] the show would receive a name change to “Kate plus Eight,” although two days later after the announcement, TLC received a cease and desist order from Jon’s attorneys. Filming has been suspended and the remaining of the season is currently dropped.

    It’s ironic how TLC is marketed as “The Learning Channel,” but all you learn in “Jon and Kate plus Eight,” is how to use your children to earn a living.

Many people have attacked Kate Gosselin [after your first mention of a person who doesn not attend AHS and who is not a faculty member, use their last name only. This needs to be taken into account in various places throughout your article], arguing that she was exploiting the children by wanting to continue the show. Since there are child labor laws in place, does working on a show count as labor to the children? The truth is that both Jon and Kate have some growing up to do before they start up the show again.

TLC should start focusing its attention on its other family related shows, such as, “18 Kids in Counting,” and “Table for 12.”

    Statistically speaking Jon and Kate plus Eight [use quotation marks around the show's name] has aired 112 episodes with three specials [although, 112 is above 10 and 3 is below it, since they're being used so close together you should make them consistent, so either spell then both out or write them both as digits.] The show is produced by Figure 8 films and Advanced Medical Productions. The show is currently suspended and if the series is not picked up again, TLC will begin showing a series of specials on the Gosselin’s [Gosselins'] life. The show has released four DVDs with the fifth season coming out early 2010.

    How many people do you think would tune in to watch parents fight? Surprisingly, nearly 10 million people, Jon & Kate Plus Eight is a television reality show that started off with two hour-long specials called, “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins” and “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later.” After being picked up as a show by Discovery Health, it was transferred to TLC during its third season.

    In April 2009, tabloids around the country began reporting that Jon Gosselin was having an affair; the happy television family had somehow become front-page news. The fifth season premiere of the show attracted the largest audience for the night since it was promoted in the commercials that Jon and Kate Gosselin were going to discuss their “situation.” It wasn’t until a few episodes later that they announced their separation. It was originally stated by TLC that on Nov. 2, 2009 the show would receive a name change to Kate plus Eight, although two days later cut after the announcement, TLC received a cease and desist order from Jon’s attorneys. Filming has been suspended and the remainder of the season is currently dropped.

    It is ironic that TLC is marketed as “The Learning Channel,” but all you learn in Jon & Kate Plus Eight is how to use your children to earn a living. Before the show became more important than the war in Iraq or healthcare reform, it was a sweet show about raising eight children while having to deal with the stress of a real world job. The show has received heavy criticism especially Kate, who was attacked due to people arguing that she’s been exploiting her children by wanting to continue the show.

    Since there are child labor laws in place, one can wonder if working on a show counts as labor to the children. The truth is that both Jon and Kate have some growing up to do before they return to the show again. TLC should just leave the couple to work things out, before they try to make a profit out of the show again. TLC should start focusing its attention on its other family centered shows, such as 18 Kids and Counting, and Table for 12. Before the divorce, both Jon and Kate were close friends with the production crew, even going so far to call them part of the family. No one knows how all this will affect the children in the future, but there bond to be influenced sooner or later.

    The future of the show is currently unknown, but despite this, has anyone ever reported how the children feel about this? Jon & Kate Plus Eight shows why personal lives shouldn’t be on television. It teaches students what not to do for money and how not to resolve problems in the limelight. So should you stop by TLC and watch the show? It all depends on whether you like watching people argue or not, but either way it doesn’t matter, the show’s been suspending.
