Jon and Kate most watched cable program of 2009, after football

Ugh. Here's to a camera-free 2010.

One episode made the most. TLC though according to the site TV by the Numbers lists top 25 cable shows weekly. Tlc does not always make that list. (In fact, I only saw 3 weeks they did make the list in the latter 6 months of 2009.

Tlc is a one hit wonder, who had to lie & manufactur a family, then watched as it imploded on television. I know the ratings were high for the divorce announcement. I still find it funny that TLC pumped a ton of money on the Natale Morales interview and Kate could not really get the turn out for the amount of Money and promotion TLC had to use. And, when they tried after the hiatus to launch the show she was slipping miserably into the 1.6 millions when they tried to focuse on her.

Irene you are right, one show and one show only drew in the viewers and that was because people tuned in to see the train wreck! Most of the time if you checked out the weekly numbers you would see that Jon and Kate were beat out by the likes of SpongeBob Squarepants!

Please and pretty please let this be a Gosselin free year!

Debbie LOL.

Kate & TLC you were beat by Spongebob. BAM!

All I can say about this is that I feel sorry for the kids. Their idiot parents and TLC have aired their "dirty laundry" for America's entertainment.

There will be a day when 8 autobiographies come out when Justice will come Gosselin style.

I wonder if we can make Men Of A Certain Age the replacement as Most Watched Cable Show of 2010.
