There are literally four episodes left on TLC's card before the network should wrap up "Jon & Kate plus 8". The reality show which has been running since 2007 will reach the end of the road on November 23 due to lack of footage.
Following their divorce, Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin have lived separately with Jon getting little screen time. While Kate intended to continue with the reality show, Jon refused to let his kids be filmed for fear that it would be detrimental to them. He halted the production and prohibited the crew from entering his property.
As a result, TLC was forced to make a new deal with Kate, signing her for a solo show called "Kate Plus Eight". However, since Jon is still determined to protect his kids from the camera, the new project could not move on.
The sign that TLC has run out of its highest-rated show was obvious when it decided to do a special episode where Kate answered fans questions on Monday, October 26. Next week's episode will still revolve around a one-on-one moment with Kate while the November 9 episode will be compiling old footage and repackage them into "Best Moments". New footage will only be available on November 16. There is still no clue yet on what the series finale will deal with.
