Gosselins in Space
The Gosselins travel to Alabama to go to Space Camp! Kate and the kids explore all NASA has to offer and become astronauts for the day. Will the family get along long enough to complete their missions? 60 Min.

T-minus 8 hours and TLC hasn't posted a clip or anything on their page or Kate's. It's laughable how there is no effort put into any promotion for her.

Sad but true said...

Just a thought, I wonder if her lack of expression/intonation in her description of their "excitement" about Space Camp indicates she has already been told by TLC that she is on the chopping block. I've forgotten the sequence of events; is this the last segment to have been filmed? She gives the appearance of just having been told some very unpleasant news.

The truth is, we have no idea when these segments were filmed, since we know they're being shown out of order. If Collin's not there, then presumably it's after the tups' b'day, but who knows? Maybe she just left him home with a not-a-nanny.

I'm laughing about Steve being spotted in the background-- why are they at such pains to hide him? He was front and center in the RV episodes from 2011, even had speaking part (where he bashed Jon) in the 2011 finale episode. We all know he's there, so why the subterfuge?

Poor Schmoopy. Jill Duggar just announced baby #2, and it looks like they're likely to get another girl (Joy) married off, too. So there'll no doubt be an avalanche of Duggar episodes in 2017, obviating any need for K8 Plus 8 Minus 1 Plus Two Dogs.
***********************************************


I forgot that a member of the Duggar family was sent away as well (under completely different circumstances). It was touch and go for the family as TLC initially cancelled the show but money always win and TLC was able to save a popular show with a little rebranding. I wonder if Kate thinks she can be as lucky.

I bet poor Schmoopy wasn't too thrilled to hear about Jill Duggar's pregnancy today.
Man, is People up that family's rear end.

So, let's look at TLC's talent pool. You've got the Duggars: Jill and Jessa are both expecting, Jinger ought to be conceiving any minute, and Joy is about to be engaged. Then you've got TFW and her puppies.
Oh, and her new dogs.

GollyGee said...

haha.

Funny, Will the family get along long enough to complete their missions?

Even more funnier, Kate becomes an astronaut.

Oh, even funnier, did you see how she put her hands pretending to be a bunny? I thought Cara was going to implode from embarrassment! Her staring off into space, the rolling of her eyes, the look on her face said it all.

P*****!

Kate is a twit said...

I watched both the People preview and the Extra preview. Kate and the kids just seemed so bland-not showing any excitement at all. Even when Kate said it's something they always wanted to do, she couldn't show any excitement about going there. It's almost like they were forced to do it, and weren't happy about it.

Kate probably just wanted to get through this episode and get to the beach part of the Alabama trip.

Layla said...

Molly12 (3)
Problem is, Kate has nothing to rebrand. The Duggars have new people coming into their lives, courting/marriages/babies, and all Kate can come up with is a couple puppies. That's done now, so what else do they have to offer? She isn't dating (and even if she was, her dating episode bombed), there is no extended family, no friends other than Jamie and Deanna, so there's only so much they can do with that. Same people, same story lines, nobody new or different to liven it up a bit. It's repeat, repeat, and repeat again. The audience is bored. Boredom is the kiss of death.

Wowser said...

Yep..she's toast...no advertising previews for tonight's episode and no repeat of last weeks in the couple of hours preceding the show.

I wonder if Steve got to wear a space suit?
What I really wonder is how Steve gets to tell people what to do, what not to do, where to go and where not to go in public spaces!
He's got zero authority to stop anyone, yet he's been getting away with touching people, assaulting people and harassing them into deleting photos for years now.

Anonymous said...

@Kris,

You are correct. I've seen very little promotion this time. I watch Velocity which is a sister channel to TLC and overseen by the same person. Last year they had K+8 commercials running just about every hour. This year I've seen absolutely nothing.

Kate has nothing to offer anymore other than her chaos. Even TLC's episode descriptions play up the family dysfunction. I hope people are finally tired of seeing the same old activities repackaged into a new show. The only thing I see that may be remotely interesting is the twins 16th birthday, but unless it is something more than Kate & the kids running around without any semblance of planning I think any ratings bump will be a flash in the pan.

Ingrid said...

Kate will never let those kids go to any camp. She won't have any control. Other kids will ask questions because they might be aware of the show through watching it or overhear others talk about it. I doubt she will be able to make everyone there sign a CA and I wouldn't think a minor could sign one anyhow and make it stick. Steve won't be there to shoo away those who are curious. Too many secrets and pictures could be leaked out even accidently. Kids talk. They could forget sometimes and say something they shouldn't. They could talk between themselves and be overheard.

Nope no way she will ever allow it.

JoyinVirginia said...

Sounds just as boring as every other boring episode TFMJG and company have. Space Camp is supposed to be for kids, who wants to bet TFMJG will plant herself front and center and ruin this experience for the kids, like she ruins everything else! I'm gonna watch jeopardy and see if Cindy Stovall wins again. She is the inspiring contestant who died December 5, before her first episode aired on December 13. Jeopardy producers say her episodes were filmed in August, three weeks after her in person interview. She found out before her interview that she only had about six months to live, she died from cancer. Only Alex Trebeck and a few producers knew how sick she was during filming. During with grace and dignity, that's hard.
Raising a bunch of kids, with help, while having intermittent fits? That's BORING.

Sad but true said...

LOL, the only new post today on the K8 FB page is "Getting ready for the guests! Seven Cleaning Shortcuts to Get Your House Ready for a Holiday Party." They typically post these helpful hints on their other "star" FB pages, too, so it's totally generic. Too funny.

Somehow I doubt K8's house is going to be the scene of a big holiday party. It hasn't been in the past.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

MikeB (#12), you know what would've gotten through-the-roof ratings for the Sweet 16 episode? If TFW had invited the twins' father to attend.

jamezvader1194 said...

@FlimsyFlamsy I didn't mention this but i have to agree with Layla when she said that the twins sweet 16 could be very bad viewer count wise because of all the people who've not only claimed how snotty they are but also the fact that people said they can't stand to watch the twins.The only thing about the twins sweet 16 im curious about is the guy that Mady hugged in the trailer.We shall see who Kate PAID to come to the party.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Sad but true (#17), and those kinds of party tips are usually for people who work full time, and don't have outside help, and have to rush to get the house ready for entertaining. TFW has no job, lots of help, and very few holiday guests that we've ever heard about.

Kate's Fetid Soul said...

Same sh*tty script set in a different location...

I'm am positive that tonight's crap-fest will include someone rolling her eyes, someone mocking another person, mother & daughters screeching and screaming and being aggressive to each other (except the boys, and one or two catatonic, uninterested children).

Please- enough already. Time to pull the plug.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Space Camp is something that you see show up on Make a Wish requests. It's not something most kids will ever get a chance to do. It's too bad they don't appreciate it and are sitting there with sour looks on their faces. But I understand it, they didn't ASK to be lavished with once in a lifetime things like this all the time, and having to have it all filmed must be beyond tiresome at this point.

A more compelling episode would be to take along some needy or special needs kids with them and truly "give back." Whatever happened to going back to that camp, she said she would.

And yes, they are ripping off Little People Big World again.

Cindy was truly inspiring. I'm a big fan.
I've been reading so many stories of REAL struggling single mothers, and their stories are truly sad and compelling.
Women working, can't afford rent, can't afford a tree or presents for wonderful children who deserve a special Christmas.
Kate's constant whining is repugnant. She doesn't hold a candle to women who are scraping by, but are managing to kick ass at motherhood.
I'm sure they couldn't care less about her and her first-world, 1% problems (that she brings on herself).

TLC stinks said...

"The last activity of the Aviation Challenge was the water challenge," the reality TV mainstay tells the camera. "That one was interesting to me because I don't like water, can't really swim. Don't mind flying, but I'm not really interested in playing 'Let's crash into the water.' I was that afraid of it, and my kids were that amount as excited about it."

However, not all of the children are looking forward to the activity. Mady, 16, tells the camera about herself and twin sister Cara, "Well, we're not fans of water because then our makeup comes off — I was just not feeling that. Also, helmets? Really not that fashionable."

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

This is going to backfire again with the average audience, going on such a cool trip without Collin and nary breathing a mention of him. I've been pleasantly somewhat surprised at the audience's reaction. They REALLY don't like the family moving on without him. They resent it. I'm not saying no one gets to ever have fun again when a child is placed outside the home. Of course not. But, gloating about all the fun you're having REALLY isn't playing well to her audience. It just isn't working. Another fleecing tonight.

Question, is there anything other than live tweeting available? Can you like, tweet, but tell it to be delayed and fire at a later time? Heh.

Fleecing The Sheeple said...

So, let's look at TLC's talent pool. You've got the Duggars: Jill and Jessa are both expecting, Jinger ought to be conceiving any minute, and Joy is about to be engaged.

TLC should do a show when the Duggar girls are NOT pregnant. At least that would be different.

From the preview clips, both Kate and the kids looked bored and I didn't see anyone laughing. The way they looked at the instructors, who tried to make it exciting for them, basically tells it all.

On the one hand, I feel for them and their situation, losing their entire childhoods to this reality show. I'm sorry for that. On the other hand, she is raising incredibly ungrateful kids to the point of disgust. It's very unattractive no matter how unfair this all is.

They are ungrateful about everything. It's like a game to see who can be the least enthused. They clearly have no idea the opportunities they've been given very few kids will ever have, EVER. That really falls on Kate to teach those lessons.

It's their "hands down favorite of all time", but Collin was not there. Their best birthday party ever was without Collin. And their favorite activity ever (archery tag) was without Collin. I'm seeing a pattern here.

I just looked at the TLC website. Looks like what's happening there on Jan 13 (which is a Friday) is the rerunning of older seasons (Maine vacation is the first one). Who knows how long that will last? It looks like they're also rerunning some older episodes next week during the "dead zone" of post X-mas vacation.

For example, next Tuesday, they're running 6 old episodes from noon to 6 p.m., 2 from last season and then 4 from this season. Then the Alabama beach vacay "premieres" at 10 p.m. My guess is that Jan 3 and Jan 10 will be the last episodes of the current season. Looks like TLC has some holes to fill in the schedule if they plan to rerun her after all of her new episodes have aired.

Sherry Baby said...

But wouldn't they have to know that there is a problem that needs to be fixed before an actual fixing can take place?

In Kate's case, with her lack of self-awareness, even if she weren't a narcissist, I can't imagine that she would recognize anything that needs to be fixed.

Sherri said...

I watched the Pocono's episode this afternoon and noticed two things. TFW said, again, that "I don't like dogs." It wasn't part of a longer statement that she loves the puppies or she's changed her mind about them, but just that she doesn't like dogs. It sure didn't look like the family had taken any puppy obedience/training classes. The kids were doing things that would have been addressed the first day as no-no's in a class. Oh well, her problem, not mine.

Also, I had to LOL at them out on the lake tubing and boating - while it was raining. Sure, they were going to get wet anyway, but most people would opt for a nice sunny day to have boating fun. But, not TFW and family; they had to keep to their production schedule. ugh

Here's a thought. Teach your children and dogs to be respectful of you and you won't have to shout over them all the time. These children are 16 and 12 years old. They are well old enough to be quiet and listen when their parent is speaking to them.

BTW, TLC only tweeted once during the show.

Sad but true said...

Even on the K8 FB page, comments are not flattering.

XXXXX Im sorry, but I remember watching this show back when they were babies. I just don't enjoy it anymore. It gives me a headache. Maybe it's because they've mainly been raised by their mom but for the most part they are very whiny, and the eye rolls from Kate are out of control...news flash.. Children will follow your actions.. And yes they do act entitled.. Especially the older two. I also think that Kate should have let the kids do this on their own. They're old enough to be left at space camp alone for the day.

YES, why couldn't TLC have filmed the kids doing this alone? We know she does nothing with the kids when they're not being filmed, so why pretend there's all this togetherness.

Jamesvader1194 said...

@Sad But True (91) I 100% believe that as well,notice how the person's TL is not only nothing but Kate but the person literally only tweets whenever Kate is on T.V.Not once have they ever tweeted about something else.Milo at least sometimes tweets about other things.That person clearly a paid PR

Sad but true said...

Brutal! But well-deserved, I'm sure.

XXXXX Sadly, there are probably many intelligent children out there who would be appreciative of this experience, but do not have the resources to do so. Instead, we get to see Kate make a fool of herself and the children constantly whine.

NJGal51 said...

I use the Twitterrific app and according to the count on that there were less than 200 tweets during her tweet party (from her "here we go" till her "see you next week" tweets). That's pretty pitiful especially when you take into consideration that many of them are multiple tweets from TFW, Milo and other sheeple.

About TFW having to shout to be heard...what the heck does she think teachers do to be heard over 20+ kids? She's such a tool.

On the other hand, she is raising incredibly ungrateful kids to the point of disgust. It's very unattractive no matter how unfair this all is.

Why should they be grateful when EVERYTHING they do and EVERYWHERE they go is for the sole purpose of filming a FAKE "reality" TV show. And they're NOT "free" when the kids have had to give up their lives and their privacy! It's clearly obvious that they just want to be NORMAL - just like their father did!

Tucker's Mom said...

WTH with "losing" the space suits? I understand that luggage gets lost, especially when you have to change planes etc. But hells bells, I've had lost luggage, too, and you get back what you put in it!
Again, Kate does not care for things. I'd expect a child to lose such a keepsake, not a 41-year old mother with kids who should be able to pack their clothing and be responsible for their belongings.
I'm betting Kate told the people at Space Camp to keep them, or she had Steve lose them so she didn't have to deal with "Halloween costumes" that she knew the kids would never use.

Whiny, ungrateful, disrespectful kids does not make a funny show. People who watch are appalled how these kids are being raised. Tide has turned. I actually believe TLC airing these shows is working in Jon's favor. Did not watch.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Jbranck1980 (#105), yes, she's contradicting herself once again. I thought C leaving brought them all closer together?

Again, she says whatever she needs to, whenever it serves her. If she wants to take credit for her wonderful kids, she'll crow about their teamwork, or how they were all at the top of their class (which was an outright lie). When she wants to enjoy attention for being a victim, she'll let us
know how outnumbered she is, and what
a trial it is that her children even exist.

"Circus of idiots" -- that was pretty awful. Seriously, imagine the outrage if those words had come out of Jon Gosselin's mouth.

I agree with Admin. Without the show they'd not have seen Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, the Grand Canyon, nor experienced things most people never get the chance to do in a lifetime. Yes, they were working, but they still should be appreciative of the life experiences that took place and the opportunities the show has afforded them.

Just because I had to work extra hours to pay for my vacation last year doesn't mean that I didn't appreciate the great time I had. I don't think the two things have to be mutually exclusive.

kris said...

"Circus of idiots" Wow. And just last week she told Leah to not criticize because "we don't tear people down, we try to lift them up."

Because in life many people are dealt a shit hand and it's not an excuse to be nasty. Some kids have to film a reality show when they would prefer a private childhood. Some kids have no money and go to bed hungry. Some kids have an alcoholic parent. Some kids get cancer. Some kids struggle in school. Some kids are bullied. And on and on.

There will always be adversity in life on some scale, small, medium or large. Good parents teach children that you don't use the shit times to excuse yourself from being kind, grateful, and polite. In fact, you rise above it. She has clearly done none of it. In fact she doesn't even seem to recognize there's something wrong with her children's behavior.

I actually think dealing with the hand they are dealt is being made much worse because of how they are allowed to constantly react to it. If they had the skills to be more positive and to look on the bright side of this mess they all might deal a lot better with all this, which only benefits them.

She really believes she's being funny. I said this before, but her idea of funny is pretty much always at someone else's expense, and usually her kids'. I think the idea this season was that we were supposed to see a more personable, relaxed K8. But from the comments on FB and elsewhere, no one watching seems to be getting that. Most people would prefer to see a lot LESS K8, full stop, no matter what persona she happens to be trying on for the cameras.

Turtle (AKA Amy2) said...

I wonder if Kate is envious of parents who have well mannered respectful children. She seems not to enjoy being around her own children who are difficult to manage. Well, this is the result of not parenting children consistently and lovingly.

Yes, they were working, but they still should be appreciative of the life experiences that took place and the opportunities the show has afforded them.

-----------------

What opportunities? Most of those big trips happened when they were so young they'll barely remember anything without watching the show. Also, plenty people have seen them film and stated that they do a lot of takes and they only stay wherever they are long enough to film. They never have the time to actually enjoy wherever they are, there are no real experiences.That's like saying movie actors surely enjoyed their filming location. They didn't. They were there to work and left as soon as work was done. That's what the G kids are doing too and they've been doing it for as long as they can remember. I agree that they should be taught to be polite but I think it's unfair to ask them to smile and be happy when they've been dealt a crappy hand. Same goes for kids with cancer or whatever else. Yes, teach them manners, tell them to have hope but don't ask them to act happy if they're not feeling it, that's just wrong. Just because some people deal with adversity with a smile on their face, doesn't mean everyone should. Everyone deals with tough stuff in their way. I want to reiterate at this point that I think the G kids should be taught to deal with their stuff in a non harmful/hurtful way, for both them and the people around them.

her towards her children. They are her property.

Love this comment from the FB page:
xxxx When you kids go on vacation to a fun place like space camp, the network really needs to leave Kate at the Entrance placey in the guard shack thingy, with the guard maney persony, because like Mady said these things are supposed to be for kids and your mom saves the coolest parts for herself. Besides we watch the show to see you guys growing up not to see your mom making an a** of herself. Also nice work Mady with being nice and mature, there is some hope you won't end up acting like your mom all your life.

swimgirl said...

Some more good comments from FB:

xxxxx Shouldn't be too hard for Kate to learn to walk on the moon, she already thinks she walks on water. Time to deep six this show. No one cares anymore. I just hope the new show about the Quints doesn't meet the same fate with the parents ending up resenting and snipping at each other. Hope they learn a lesson from Jon & Kate.

xxxx Here's to hoping those NASA people can stick her in a rocket and send it off to mars. Everyone benefits. She is sickening

xxxx The older kids are very unhappy,Kate needs a lot of attention and acts like a child demanding attention!!

kris said...

I did watch Outdaughtered last night and while I don't particularly like the parents, I gotta say Danielle did something Kate would never and has never done. She spread some plastic out on her kitchen floor, gated off the area and put the girls down on the plastic with paper plates, paint brushes and washable paint and just let them go to town. They had it EVERYWHERE, painting their toes, painting each other and Danielle and her friend were in the gated area with them, just laughing with the girls having the best time.

Can you imagine Kate EVER doing that? The shrieking and screaming would be ear piercing (by Kate), whining 'they're ruined!!'

And another observation, the quints are KIND to each other. They aren't bonking each other over the head with trains or pulling each others hair or biting each other. Sometimes they climb over each other but they are purposefully mean to each other. Now Danielle and Adam are pretty calm, laid back parents. If one of the girls does something they shouldn't, they'll correct them but in a kind tone. They aren't yelling at the top of their lungs at them like some lunatic banshee (Kate). I can see the different styles of parenting, the calm mild mannered Busby's have calm, mild mannered kids. The mean, cold, loud, hitting parent that Kate is, has produced the same mean, cold, loud, hitting kids.

-------------------------------

She did say "PULEAAASSE" when she wanted the kids to get something out of the cooler. Why didn't she just get it herself when she was standing so close to the cooler? She appears to complicate things and has the kids (especially the 2 boys) running all over the place to take care of things. Why can't SHE or the girls take some stuff out to the van for trips instead of demanding the boys take care of loading the van? She really is a demented sexist as*.

Nicky said...

I didn't watch, but it sounds like it was a shit show. Didn't Kate say this was her favourite episode? Yikes!

I am part of a FB group that discusses reality tv (mostly housewife shows, LOL), and the discussion came around to this show. Here is a quote from someone who says they live near Kate:

"She lives near me - she is as miserably hateful in person as she is on TV. She screams thru stores, she expects you to know her and accommodate her, she's an asshole to service employees like waiters, etc. I've had the displeasure to run into her out and about. She wrote off her entire - literally - entire family for fame. She was a nurse, he was in IT. Both professions in our area make very good money. She could have easily made a good living working nights while he worked days. Both Jobs easily provide comfortable livings if you're good at them. And they had family to help, like they were all trying to in the beginning...before she wrote them completely off for fame. She doesn't want her awful, ungratefulness getting out. Luckily she's got amazing parents who have better values than to make a mockery of her."

Obviously, this is exactly what we've all been saying for years. Interesting to hear another local perspective.

TLC stinks said...

Anxiously awaiting the ratings for this one

InsanityReigns said...

Why is TFW front and center in all of the filming? And she never stops talking, screaming, etc.. to let any of the kids talk. She is manic and then angry. No wonder the kids don't trust her and are disgusted.

I will say, this is the first time I've heard this about her parents. Not that I doubt it, but here again, her parents not knowing "how to help" her has been a part of K8's narrative for so long, it's hardly surprising we know almost nothing about them.

susantoyota said...

I was wondering if anyone else noticed the following---while waiting for the show to start last night, I looked at the 'guide' for Outdaughtered, LPBW, and the Crazy Kate Show. In the description, Outdaughtered is listed as Documentary, Reality while both LPBW & the Crazy Kate Show were listed as Reality.

What's the difference/how can Outdaughtered be listed as both while the other 2 are only 'reality' shows? Is it because the Busbys' show hasn't jumped the shark (yet) or the Busbys haven't separated or gotten divorced?

Gigi Be said...

I found Kate's mom on a popular social media website. i noticed that Kate looks very much like her mom before all the plastic surgery happend. Sadly I noticed many pictures of other grandkids, aunts, uncles. There seems to be a lot of love between them all. unfortunately none of the 8 get to benefit from any of it. I'm reluctant to give out other detail as I want to respect their privacy. Such a shame!

Yes sadly she doesn't want to be a part of them.My opinion they seem to be a very stable, loving family. Grandma Kreider seems kind and affectionate with the grandkids, and there are many. Her own sister refers to Mrs Kreider as her lifelong "buddy".This made me tear up as it reminds me of my personal relationship with my mom. There is no reason that TFW has to do this "all alone". She could have had a heathy family stand by her and help her with the kids throughout the years. But this was her choice

Sad but true said...

So the most recent "sister wife" is leaving that repulsive guy Kody. That ought to generate some ratings, TLC! (And maybe that's why she's doing it?)

While anxiously awaiting the ratings I have been reading the comments from those who watched. It sounds like it was a total disaster. I've read that she made no mention of Collin. She could have said something like, 'oh I wish Collin could have been with us, he'd have loved it'. She is a cold blooded, heartless, merciless, ungrateful bitch. I hope Admin can bring herself to recap this "best" experience ever.

Hey Milo (since we know you read here), what was that you said about crying tears in our beers? I thought k you have that all wrong. We're having a blast with this season. But I bet I know who IS crying tears in her beers. Besides you, that is.

Ratings disaster. Kate didn't even make top 50. She only got 560,000 viewers. I think this is it folks. SHE'S DONE!!!

She said Aaden was BLIND??
Her son with the glasses??
OH, but it's just a joke, right???
__________

Yes, Aaden was in the water, and H8 said something like, "You can do it, Aaden, even though you're BLIND!"

I have a brother who was born with NO eyes at all, so I am admittedly overly sensitive to thoughtless remarks like this.

Nevertheless, it was cruel to say this to her son because he wears glasses.

What if things had turned out differently and H8 had given birth to one or more truly handicapped babies from her pregnancy with multiples?

Oh silly me, she would have shipped the imperfect babies off to an institution.

From ShowBuzzDaily:

51 KATE PLUS 8 TLC 10:02 PM 60 0.17 560

Anonymous said...

Ratings are down again. 560,000 viewers and a 0.17 share. That's the lowest ratings since they brought her back in 2014.

For reference Outdaughtered got 1.114 million and LPBW got 1.180 million. Half the audience just tuned out when Kate came on.

I think the writing my finally be on the wall. She's got two original episodes left before the final "game time" past episode trivia finale. If things don't improve substantially I don't see how TLC can justify keeping her around any more.

NOIP, thanks for the update on Robert, and for the link for donating, as I had forgotten there was a way to donate on his website.

Future listing-

Next week on Kate Plus 8:

While the 8 reclaim their childhoods,
momster Kate goes on a job interview.

The world collectively breaths a sigh of relief.

----------------------------------
Actually, each child was given a character to play when they "crashed and sank" and they had to act out that part during the "rescue." One of the other kids was not able to use their legs, one was blind, and the guide helping them was busy filling up on hot dogs and the kids had to rescue him. It was all part of the parts they were given to act out, and the purpose was for them to work together to rescue each other and help those who needed it. It was confusing because they didn't explain it well, but they did it several times and they all had different roles each time.

Just passing by said...

Ratings are in: Kate plus 8 - 560,000

Just want to clarify what's behind the "Aaden blind" comment before it gets totally blown out of proportion. At one point they were giving each kid scenarios or roles to play while they were being dunked in the water. Aaden was told he would be a blind person who needed to rescue another person from the water. During the rescue, Kate yelled at Aaden that "...he was blind, but his arms still worked" (not an exact quote, but close enough).

Anyway, just wanted to clarify that statement.

Tucker's Mom said...

I hope Robert makes a full recovery. Open heart surgery is a biggie, and I hope he's going to be OK. I think he's got kids, too, and I'm sure they love their Dad.

Tucker's Mom said...

Finally, people *nothing* Kate.
It would be shocking if TLC filmed more episodes. I won't believe it until there's some sort of proof that these "seasons" are done, but her ratings plummeting down the toilet can't bode well for Kate.
I'm so very, very happy for the kids. Maybe if Kate finally gets that it's o-v-e-r, she'll loosen her iron-fisted, French-tipped grip on the children and let Jon share the custody he's wanted to share for years.

@Layla Am i the only one who notices that even some of her loyal fans haven't been watching?Like Ziggy,C.J,that Border Collie chick and some of the ones who've been around for ever and are still around but clearly have not been watching the show.They're on twitter still and have been tweeting about other things but whenever Kate tweets the twitter party NOTHING.No RTs,no reply saying they're watching,NONE.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Whoa, those numbers are miserable. So half the people watching Outdaughtered turned off their TVs or changed the channel.

I just hope TFW doesn't take anything out on the kids. She's got to be shaking in her stilettos.

Tucker's Mom said...

Speaking of Robert's heart, I know Colin really touched it. I hope hate + 8-1's plummeting viewer numbers lifts his spirits.
His endeavors have not been in vain.

Aaden was role playing a blind person in the water. The instructor gave the kids different roles to play.

JoyinVirginia said...

I have been bewildered since the beginning, trying to figure out why people were so fascinated by TFMJG and company. I have real children in my life who are fun to spend time with! Finally, they have repeated plots so many times that most everyone is bored. Plus TFMJG is as unlikable as ever. I'd much rather watch a dozen possum and rat infested homes be cleaned than watch five minutes of TFMJG.

NOIP said...

BTW i was curious as to what Milo's excuse was for the show getting cancelled back in 2011 and found this tweet.I have no idea who the Joy person she's talking about is.But she doesn't seem to get it. Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack 30 Nov 2011
@Kateplusmy8 Odd thing was...ur ratings were much higher than Joy's...still a mystery why @TLC canceled the show!

Layla said...

Jamezvader1194 (170)

I noticed that. Those fans used to be all about Kate, some of them had Kate fan blogs, and now...nothing. Maybe they don't want to be dragged down along with Kate's sinking ship, or maybe even they can't stomach the way she treats her kids.

Funny how nobody (except those of us who post here) don't even mention the horrible ratings. Last season, it was a news story when the premiere only got 955,000 viewers. She could only wish for an episode with ratings that high this season. Yet nobody cares. I think people are just over her. What is worse (for someone who wants to be in the public eye) than having haters? Apathy. Apathy is the kiss of death.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Layla (#177), I think you've nailed it with apathy. It's neither love nor hate anymore -- just indifference. And she truly doesn't get it. For her to talk to Dr. Oz about the tabloids, and the stress they cause her, it's like she thinks she's Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber.
She's yesterday's news. And I'm so hoping this circus leaves town soon, so the kids will have an opportunity for at least some type of normal childhood. Although they'll never get all those years back.

GollyGee said...

Aaden was role playing a blind person in the water. The instructor gave the kids different roles to play.

*******************

Even so, if Aaden was playing the role of a blind person in the helicopter, his mother had NO RIGHT as an allegedly good mom to holler, Aaden, HE'S BLIND! She is very cruel.

She has really acted like a absolute jackass about her poor son needed EYE WEAR. I wonder if she has already having to start wearing readers herself. That is the first step to having to get your eyes checked and start wearing glasses. It is just a part of getting older.

I know someone who had a friend in school and one girl bullied another girl who was cross-eyed, all through school and when they graduated HS, the C.E. girl went to college and the bully got married. When she had her baby she looked into the baby's face and saw that the baby's eyes were severely cross-eyed.

It comes back around. You reap what you sow.

Did ya'll catch when the guide said for the kids to pretend like CHICKENS? I wondered out loud if TFW suggested this to the guide, just to rub it in to Collin.

But, I know, that is impossible and it was a fluke.


GollyGee said...

Yes, so happy about the ratings!

As the Boss's song says, Kate's Going Down, Down, Down, Down, Going Down!

You know the colostomy bag commercial from Liberty Medical and the lady says that she is going to give it more than a At-a-Boy, I give it a WOO! HOO!

Some newer Twitter "faces" seem to be chiming in while enjoying the show, but yes, there are many long-term fans who've dropped off.
The overall numbers during Kate's "Live" Twitter "parties" are definitely down, as is the overall energy.
Used to be Kate's Twitter was on fire while her show was live on tv.

Sad but true said...

jamezvader1194 said... 176

Joy Behar (of The View fame) had a short-lived short on TLC. I can't remember if it took K8's time slot or not. Anyway, it tanked, apparently with ratings less than K8's, but it wasn't a reality show so really not comparison-appropriate.

I bet K8's really wishing she could post a photo of Collin & co. standing on front of her Xmas tree tonight. I do hope he got to go to Jon's.

Tucker's Mom said...

Apathy is the kiss of death.
*******
And the odd fan from Denmark or Yugoslovia asking "when's your show going to air here?"
It always gives me a good chuckle when some well-meaning person from say, Ireland, tells Kate how amazing she is.
"Oh, if you only knew what we know..."
Having an ocean between Kate and her fans is all that's needed to keep pulling the wool over their eyes.

I'm at loss for words to explain why TLC pulled the trigger on this season. I really am.
However, there's just something that feels different. Of course, the ratings are in the crapper, and that's great. But, it finally feels like the era of Kate Gosselin is finally coming to an end.
There's no there, there. The mystery is gone. The gig's up.

And Collin has been gone for 6 months?, and I have a feeling there are a lot of people watching, counting, and not forgetting about that precious boy.

Kylie said...

My, my, my how the mighty have fallen. It couldn't have happened at a better time or to a worse person. She so totally deserves this.

Tucker's Mom said...

I wonder if when TLC airs the last episode including Collin, if Kate will let people think that's he's back home. I wonder if she'll finally admit if he's still institutionalized somewhere and address the elephant in the room.
My money's on, "uh, no".

Tucker's Mom said...

@Kateplusmy8 @TLC I hope the show will not be all about trips,would love to see you all at home..doing normal stuff
*******
This. People can't relate to Kate. They see the show is all about lux trips and Kate being the center of attention. It's not relatable.

Anonymous said...

Widespread apathy already indicated in the just over half a million viewers last night and the online comments about the show. She always claimed this was the realist reality show ever but never explained how one family could take one vacation after another and still be considered "real". I really do think this time this is the beginning of the end. I can't see how TLC can justify continuing with such a poor rating on top of all the adverse comments.

NJGal51 said...

OK! I didn't watch the show but if Aaden was playing the role of a blind persons it puts TFW's comment into context and I would have to say that it wasn't so bad. I guess it was her attempt at encouragement although I wouldn't say to a blind person "you can do it even if you are blind". She puts her foot in her mouth enough on her own and we don't need to be the ones to blow things out of proportion needlessly. Some people take what we say here and run with it as gospel.

I hope Robert makes a full recovery. Does anyone have his web site because I'd like to make a donation.

Jeanne said...

Kate, your children are never ruined. Handicaps, bad grades, stinky sports gear, none of it ruins them. She gets more obvious all the time about her incapacity to love. It is a sickness to want all those kids born and then not want them around.

irish33 said...

Do you think it's possible TLC keeps putting her on just to aggravate us all.... Seriously why would you keep sending her on vacation that evidently cost a lot of money for those crap ratings I don't get it people help me
