'Kate Plus 8' specials way up in viewers

The premiere of the first of two Kate Plus 8 specials was a boon to TLC on Sunday: The episode titled '6th Birthday Surprise' averaged 3.4 million viewers while 'Inside Kate's Worlds' attracted 3 million. Both episodes not only posted triple-digit gains over TLC's second quarter averages in the time period but earned double-digit ratings and delivery gains over the November 2009 airings of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

The Kate Plus 8 specials - which focus on the divorced mom's complicated home life - are different from Twist of Kate, a new TLC series debuting this fall in which the mother of eight will travel the country to meet families with challenges at work or at home and attempt to 'walk a mile in their shoes. ' It's unclear how many specials TLC will produce, but the next one airs July 11.
