TLC cancels 'Kate + 8'
TLC's fascination with Kate Gosselin and her bountiful brood has come to an end: The network has canceled "Kate + 8."
"TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate + 8," the network said Monday in a statement.
Kate, her ex-husband Jon Gosselin and their eight children spearheaded the multiples-movement on TV back in 2007 and helped solidify the Discovery-owned cable network in the ratings with "Jon & Kate + 8," and its follow-up "Kate + 8," the name it took on in its sixth season.
By the end of this season "Kate + 8" will have hit the 150 episode mark (including "Jon & Kate + 8"), characterized by the network as an "exceptional milestone."
The final episode of "Kate + 8" will air Sept. 12.The network says it hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically for future specials.
