We kid, of course, because you can't pick up a celeb magazine or surf a gossip blog without learning more than you want to about the new love life of big daddy Jon.

But after a five-week hiatus that was sparked by the Gosselins' separation, we finally get a peek at how the rest of the fam is doing, as Kate takes the kiddies and heads to the beach, while the Ed Hardy-wearin' paterfamilias stays home to supervise kitchen at the family home.This week on TV: 'So You Think You Can Dance' ends, while 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' returns -- by Kim Potts
