TLC Orders New Kate Gosselin Series

kate gosselinListen, the television industry is tough. There are so many hours of airtime to fill, and not every family with more than six children is guaranteed to be super-cute. So you can imagine TLC's challenge trying to come up with new material. This is probably why they went back to one of their stand-out personalities, Kate Gosselin of 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' fame, to kick off a new series called 'Twist of Kate,' in which Gosselin will interact with a variety of American families and "see what she can do to help."

Well, the concept is surprising but it is probably a smart move for TLC to bring back one of their big ratings heavy hitters.

TLC decided to go the way of the ailing sitcom and implant celebrity guests. No more paparazzi shots and stress about the relationship; instead we'll get visits from outside forces. Yay for whitewashing.

With season four ending on the cliffhanger of Jon contemplating quitting, was the first episode of season five worth the wait?
