A Flashback on 'Kate Plus 8' -- Is Kate Gosselin Still the Same Person? (VIDEO)

A Flashback on 'Kate Plus 8' -- Is Kate Gosselin Still the Same Person?Truly, Kate Gosselin has been an odd part of our shared cultural, um, heritage for so long now that we've almost forgotten how it all began. But tonight, on 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC), the producers were there to jog our memories -- with some candid footage of, well, a frankly enormous Gosselin preparing to give birth. There she is to your right, in case you needed reminding that Kate once had six children in her womb at the same time, as a result of fertility treatments.

On the newest episode, it's time to send the kids off for their first day of school -- which is the excuse for the show to delve into "nostalgic flashback" mode. "This is the day that I thought of, back when I was on bed-rest with six kids," Kate says. " ... Someday, they'll all be in school." That day is now.

Is a Camera Crew Better at Parenting Than Kate Gosselin? (VIDEO)

Is a Camera Crew Better at Parenting Than Kate Gosselin?Is it a bad sign when kids seem more excited about hanging out with a camera crew ... than with their own mother? That's the question on 'Kate Plus 8' (Wed., 9PM ET on TLC). For the first time in six months, the show's production crew is back, and the Gosselin kids seem really happy to seem them. So happy ... that it raises a few questions. Like, is Kate Gosselin paying enough attention to her own children?

The little Gosselins seem fantastically excited to have the film crew back; because the film crew actually spends a lot of time hanging out with them. Meanwhile, Kate has received criticism for spending time away from her family -- including a stint on 'Dancing With the Stars' that separated her from the kids. Ms. Gosselin has also been investigated by the state of Pennsylvania concerning possible child labor law violations -- which relate to having her children on TV all of the time.

Do you think Kate is being a good mom? Do you approve? Is she just doing the best that she can?

Eight Shows Least Deserving of an Emmy Nomination

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jun 24th 2010 4:00PM
Jeff Dunham and Achmed the Dead TerroristIt's a shame that television doesn't have the equivalent of the Razzies, an award that extends much needed raspberries. It's such a veritable gold mine of sub-standard entertainment that the list of nominees could circle the globe twice and the awards show itself would take three days.

Then again, the Emmys are long enough.

Thanks to this lack of a punching bag for bad television, tons of horrific, terrible and just plain bad shows don't get the golden punch to the groin that they so richly deserve. They simply crawl back into the darkness unscathed, fresh-faced and ready to strike again. So in honor of Bob's "Nine People and Shows that Deserve Emmy Nominations," here are the shows that would have won big at the Emmys ... in the Bizarro World!

TLC Orders New Kate Gosselin Series

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 9th 2010 9:45AM
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. The channel's obviously part of the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality. Or rather "If it broke, then scrape together the remaining pieces and put a handful of them back on TV with a slightly better haircut."

Kate Gosselin Wants You to Know the Answers to the Questions No One Asked

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 9th 2010 7:06PM
It always amuses me when reality star and pop celebrities write and release books for their fans. They don't really strike me as big readers.

Kate Gosselin, the former star of 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' and tabloid magazines at a grocery store near you, has released her own book titled 'I Just Want You to Know.' Funny, I don't know anyone who wanted to know in the first place.

The book was published by Zondervan, a Christian book publisher, so the book not only features her accounts of what went on behind the scenes, but also things such as prayers taken from her own journal. Prayers, those would have come in handy when her show was on the air.

TLC Still Developing Kate Gosselin's New TV Show

by Scott Harris, posted Jan 14th 2010 9:55AM
Hey guys, remember Kate Gosselin? About yea tall, mildly hair, has a bunch of kids? Well, if you have somehow managed to forget her despite the non-stop tabloid coverage of her disintegrating marriage, you're in luck, because TLC is preparing to bring her back with her own show -- sans children.

Or at least, that's the rumor. According to Entertainment Weekly, TLC would not confirm reports that Gosselin will be starring in a new reality series where the original octomom would try a new, offbeat job every week. "This is just the latest speculation from supposed sources," a representative from the network indicated. "We are still in development and looking at a number of ideas. When we have determined what the show will be, you will hear directly from us."
