TLC: Who Needs J.Lo? We Got Jon & Kate!

5/27/2009 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources at TLC tell us the J.Lo reality show they wanted so badly a year ago is dead as a doornail, thanks in large part to the success of "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

Jon and Kate

It was just a year ago that TMZ broke the story that J.Lo and TLC were trying to come to terms on a reality show but J.Lo was adamant that she would not put her kids on TV -- she wanted to focus on ... yawn ... behind the scenes on creating a new J.Lo fragrance. TLC, we're told, wanted to show the kiddies.

Fast forward to Monday night -- Jon & Kate scored an astonishing 9.8 million viewers. TLC sources tell us it's pretty clear the J.Lo ain't gonna sell tickets anymore, so they have shelved the show. As one TLC source put it, "It was on life support for awhile, and now we've just lost interest."

The moral -- even big stars have their 15 minutes, so they should make the most of it while they can.

When John was on the couch and said.. I'm here for my kids.. basicaly he was saying Im done with the lights camera action and Kate.. Im here only for my kids. He is there for his kids much more then Kate is and is much more hands on with them then Kate is. She just doesnt want to ruine her make up (sob sob ...rolling my eyes)...

TLC, you are a party to the destruction of 8 little children.

Prepare for a lawsuit. Hopefully, a Guardian or the State of Pennsylvania will be party to this lawsuit. You contributed to the destruction of 1 or more (including 8) children. You contributed by means of cash to destroy the Gosselin Family and a normal life. You profited by unseemly means to profit from the backs of 8 children who had no expertise in their destruction.

No different than a "sweat shop" in the garment district.

You contracted with parents , incapable of a logical thought. They were not able to help themselves, let alone their 8 little children. The State of Pennsylvania should now control the lives of these 8 little children. They need a VOICE and the voice of reason is silent in their home.

TLC ,by means of 10 million viewers, feels they have the right to dangle these 8 little children in the wind for the delight of 10 million viewers. It is a barbaric display!

If there is a human heart. let them step up and save these 8 little children. Let the State of Pennsylvania save these children. Unfortunately, Jon & Kate have lost their way and need so much professional help they have pushed all logical thought to the curb.

No pleas from the masses have touched them. Now the judicial system, with the power to act on behalf of 8 little children, need to step up to the plate.

With compassion and logical thought, please help these 8 little children. They have no voice. They have no vote. Can't we speak for them. If you need viewers from this site, ask for it. We will line up for the 8 little children who cannot speak for themselves.

With compassion and logical thought, I beg of you, the State of Pennsylvania, to act on behalf of the 8 little children.
Rescue them the same as you would from a burning buiding, from a sinking ship, from a gun to their heads. PLEASE HELP THE 8 LITTLE GOSSELIN CHILDREN!

I watched the show on Monday just to see how Kate would respond, and she responded just how I predicted she would. She threw Jon under the bus. She took no responsibility for the failure of her marriage. Jon seemed like a man beaten down, and did seem remoreseful for his actions, and did take responsibility. A marriage can survive infidelity, but it takes two very strong people to make it happen. It takes a strong woman to fogive, and to go forward, and it takes a strong man to accept responsibility for the pain he has caused, and go forward and do what it takes to restore trust again. I do not believe for one minute that Kate will forgive, and she will milk this for all it is worth, because she wants sympathy and the media attention. Jon seems like he is over the show, and over Kate. This farce of a "family show" has no place on TLC anymore. It needs to be moved to Fox Reality, or some other nonsense network. I love Table For 12 . A real family that treats each other with love and respect.

I personally don't care about the reality shows (JK8) or (JLo+2), but let's hear about Jennifer Lopez' new movie being filmed, The BackUp Plan. Come on, TMZ, take a look at Ms. JL and her gorgeous co-star Alex O'Loughlin. Now THAT is "must watch" entertainment, to be released January 2010. I'd love some spoilers/sneak peeks of this rom-com starring these two hotties! (ouch - that sounds so sexist, but what can I say?) Love the premise of this film; check it out.

The show crew is NOT THERE 24/7 but the paps are now that Jon was caught by the PAPS coming out of bar with a YOUNG GIRL at 2am when Kate was on a BUSINESS TRIP. The babysitter had the 8 children, NOT JON.One child called Kate the babysitter's name when she recently returned, not daddy. IF JON WAS TAKING CHARGE WHEN KATE WAS AWAY, HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AT BARS AND THE CHILD WOULD HAVE BEEN SAYING DADDY TO KATE AS DADDY WOULD HAVE BEEN WHAT HE WAS USED TO BEING WITH. The older children do not always be on the show and they have the right to tell the cameras they are not allowed in their rooms when they are filming. Even the younger ones can say, which I have heard the say, "I don't want to do this." and they are allowed to not to be on an episode. These kids show they miss Daddy as he is living with his mom for now as one said I don't want you to go away again Daddy. They are healthy, smart,a nd well behaved children as the show has given them opportunities to see and do things they could not have afforded. I would watch "KATE PLUS 8, JON ON DATE"
