Today TLC announced that it's canceling Kate + 8, officially ending one of the most regrettable eras in tabloid history. After the final episode airs on September 12, you'll have to look to Toddlers & Tiaras, Teen Mom, or whoever's the next Balloon Boy for your weekly child exploitation fix. A TLC rep says they hope to "check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future." The next time we see the Gosselins, we want it to be on an awkwardly-titled I Love The '00s VH1 special. [People, AP]
Jon Gosselin, who's been against the children appearing on TV from the start since he was kicked off the show, says he's "very relieved" about Kate + 8's cancellation. "I hope they can have more private family moments," he says. "I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future." [Radar]
