TLC's 'Jon & Kate' is soon to be 'Kate Plus Eight'
NEW YORK (AP) -- "Jon & Kate Plus 8" is about to be rechristened "Kate Plus Eight."
That's the word from the TLC network, announcing Tuesday that its hit reality show will be adapting to changes in the Gosselin (GAHS'-lihn) household, which for months has been disrupted by the split up of Jon and Kate.
The renamed "Kate Plus Eight" begins Nov. 2. It will continue to focus on the lives of the young Gosselin twins and sextuplets but with a deeper focus on Kate's role as a single mother.
TLC says Jon Gosselin will continue to appear on the show, but less often.
The couple made their separation official on an episode that aired in June. TLC says they are in divorce proceedings.
The series, which airs Mondays at 9 p.m. Eastern, premiered in 2007.
TLC is owned by Discovery Communications, LLC.
