Jon Gosselin -- Odd Man Out

It's like Abbott without Costello. It's like Laurel without Hardy. It's like Sonny without Cher. Jon Gosselin is being phased out of "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

The new name of the show -- "Kate Plus Eight." TLC says Jon will be appearing less often -- translated in show biz ... see ya sucker.
