Jon & Kate Gosselin: Their Show's Out of Steam Now, Too

Looks like Jon and Kate Gosselin's marriage isn't the only thing that's floundering.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Gosselins' TLC reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, is going on extended production hiatus, and a new episode won't air until August 3.

The show's network, TLC, says that a clips show featuring some new footage will air in the meantime.

The current season of Jon & Kate Plus 8 has only aired six episodes of its 40-episode run, but according to insiders the network decided to temporarily pull the show, presumably because of all the turmoil that has recently occurred in the Gosselins' marriage. (On Monday's episode, the couple announced that they are splitting up.)

Have your say in the comments section: Can you wait until August for your next fix of Gosselins drama?

    I still can't really believe they are back on the air, and I desperately wish they'd stop filming and let all the kids deal with their parents' divorce off camera. But for these two episodes at least, the awkwardness level was a lot lower than I anticipated. I expected a lot worse, but I still think it must be difficult for the kids, especially the two older girls, to put on a happy face and pretend like everything is OK when the cameras around.

    The ONLY way TLC is going to care is if AMERICA quits watching! if 10 million people watch--even just to see the JUNK go down, they will keep taping no matter what! I WILL NEVER watch again, I will not help them in no way continue to hurt their kids. I also feel bad for the other TLC shows, because I liked them. BUT I am boycotting TLC for good! They HAD to know these two were not a real couple and their family was not so happy and stable, but they kept taping away! SHAME ON TLC, and the sponsors--forget it--In fact I am not using any products that were ever shown during their show--because they also fed into this! WIPE OUT

    TLC is complicit in this trainwreck as are all sponsors. The parents are the worst. They are supposed to be looking out for the menta,l emotional and social welfare of their children - not the things $$$ can buy.

    Get rid of the show. Period. Think about the kids for ONCE.

    This show should definitely go off the air. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice - I think not!!! I believed in this show in the beginning; I totally enjoyed watching the family. Now it is like watching my childhood all over again. We had a step mother (the stepwitch) who was exactly like Kate. You never knew what mood you would find her in and she would go off on you at the drop of a dime. It was always about what she could get. God bless Jon for putting up with the mental abuse he did. She was so mean and degrading to him. Hopefully they will get this off the air and allow these children to heal and get on with a semi-normal life.

    Boycott TLC and all the sponsors until this mess is OFF the AIR! TLC has LIED to the viewers for months if not years! TLC, you went toooooooooooo far this time!

    I will stop watching the show too....it's no fun anymore when a family is broken. I derive so much strength and faith in family from this show (there were so much love in the family and always a happy ending in the first few seasons) and now it's just...2 parents is always better than 1

    I will not watch another second of this show! It is no fun anymore! Kate needs to save some of that money. Stop have facials and spa appointments, lay off the tanning visits, try saving on perfect makeup....because when this show fails, because of no viewers.....she is gonna need that money!

    i think it's really sad that they would divorce rather than giving up the show that has obviously torn them apart. don't get me wrong, Kate has some dominence issues, and jon always seems so passive. I think giving up the show and really trying to work on their marriage is what they should do. However, after watching the show last night, i don't think jon wants to work on anything. he seems excited to have a "new chapter" in his life. I SIDE WITH HIM DUE TO WHAT WE SAW ON TV! HOWEVER, WHEN I SAW HIM WITH EARRINGS ON AND SAYING THAT HIS EXCITED TO START HIS "NEW CHAPTER"! I WAS SO SHOCKED! MAYBE THIS IS A PRODUCT OF WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF VERBAL, MENTAL AND PHYSICAL ABUSE DOES. HE WANTS TO ESCAPE TO HAVE FREEDOM TO BE FREE. THE DIVORCE IS KATE IDEA! I WISHED THEY WOULD HAVE SAVED THE MARRIAGE FOR THE SAKE OF THE KIDS. THEY CAN SO FOR ALREADY. BUT I T WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT TO PUT UP WITH KATE. THE MAN DID ALOT OF DUTIES AT HOME FOR THE KIDS. KATE NEVER DID APPRECIATE NOTHING AND STILL NOW SHE IS STILL PUSHING JON BUTTONS! THE REASON THEY BUY THE KIDS SO MANY THINGS IS TO REPLACE THEM FOR NOT BEING THERE AND FOR LOVE. I WISH THE KIDS BEST LOVE FROM BOTH PARENTS....................
