Series info and storyline
Kate Plus 8 is an American reality television series that`s been on the air since April 10, 2007 with some down time and a title adjustment following the divorce of Kate and Jon Gosselin, the series` lead characters. The program is produced by Figure 8 Films and Advanced Medical Productions and executive produced by Bill Hayes. It`s been broadcast on Discovery Health in 2007-2008, and moved to TLC in 2008. The current fifth season has aired on December 8, 2015.
Kate Gosselin, and her eight children – twins and sextuplets – are at the center of Kate Plus 8 plot. The show originally aired under the name of Jon & Kate Plus 8, but following the couple`s divorce in 2009 the series was renamed and aired under its current name. The filming was suspended at some point due to Jon`s objections, then the series finally returned to the small screen in 2010.
Reception and renewal possibilities
The series was extremely popular over the course of its run, seen at some point by a truly impressive audience of 9.8 million viewers. It`s one of TLC`s highest-rating program of all times. However, the viewer summaries on the review aggregator websites are mostly negative, disapproving of the way in which the critics think the children are exploited on screen. The filming at the Gosselin house takes place three days of the week with the fourth day allotted to filming the interview segment. In any case, even the critics of the series seem to be avid watchers, otherwise they would not know so many details of the series to disapprove of. The series obviously seems curious enough to watch to an audience large enough to warrant an almost certain renewal.
