Show info and background
Kate Plus 8 is a popular TLC’s reality television show that is currently being broadcast in the United States. The reality program was developed by Figure 8 Films, the production company behind such hit television projects as Salvage Dawgs, 7 Little Johnstons and 17 Kinds and Counting. Exec produced by Bill Hayes, the reality series was first released in the US on the Discovery Health Channel in 2007 and before the couple got separated, it used to be titled Jon & Kate Plus 8.
The original reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 came about after the Discovery Health channel broadcast two one-hour television specials about the Gosselin family and their eight children, both of which have generated quite a buzz. After the first two cycles, the program was moved to TLC where it continued delivering extremely high viewership numbers. In 2009, the couple got separated and the reality show was over only to be revived again with the current title, focusing on Kate as a single mother and occasionally featuring her ex-husband.
Ratings, reviews and possible renewal
Season 4 of Kate Plus 8 came out in the US on the TLC network on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. The storyline of the show picks up during the summer, when the school year is over and Kate is busy planning all kinds of fun activities for her growing brood. In the premiere episode, we see Kate getting the kids ready to depart for their Florida vacation to have some fun in the sun. The current cycle of the show will also show a single mother of eight trying to get back into the dating world, which would prove tricky. Although the viewership has dropped significantly after the couple divorced and the series changed its focus, it still remains one of the top performers for the network and will most likely get another run.
