Time To Get a Real Job

The TV carnival freakshow known as TLC has decided to cancel Kate Plus 8, presumably because they found another overly fertile egomaniac willing to be on TV for less money.

TLC issued this statement: “TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8. By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.” A milestone, indeed. I think we will all remember where we were at when this news came down.

I’ll provide the snark here, James Hibberd, thank you very much. Personally, I find this to be very irresponsible, in a time when our nation is dealing with crippling unemployment the last thing we need is nine more useless mouths on the welfare rolls. Also, too, 6 seasons? 150 episodes? Arrested Development got canceled after three seasons, but a couple too stupid to figure out how birth control works has been in the public eye for over half a decade? What is the world coming to?

Oh and here’s the cherry on top of the sh*t cake:

“Kate Gosselin? Sounds like a perfect fit for Bachelor Pad,” he wrote. “Or, H8R…”

So there you go. Bachelor franchise spin-off Bachelor Pad, where former Bachelor Padcontestants go on dates and compete in challenges, might be an option — though that would depart from the show’s usual format, since she’s never been on a Bachelor show. Or Fleiss’ upcoming CW reality show debuting Sept. 14 about anti-fans confronting celebrities they dislike.

Christ, we finally got this woman off TV and you want to just put her right back on? If you need me I’ll be in the corner, weeping for the future of humanity.
