"Jon and Kate Plus Eight" to Drop Jon

It's official, though not unexpected. TLC is changing "Jon and Kate Plus Eight" to be a Kate-focused show. It will become "Kate Plus Eight," after the couple's split, and Jon's much-publicized, er, public escapades.

TLC announced the changes on Tuesday. The renamed “Kate Plus Eight” will begin on Nov. 2. It will continue to focus on the lives of the 8-year-old Gosselin twins and 5-year-old sextuplets but will focus onKate’s role as a single mother.

According to TLC, however, the cable network continues to have an exclusive arrangement with Jon Gosselin, so rumors of him starting a new reality show of his own appear to be false. He will apparently appear in "guest shots" as well.

Jon and Kate Gosselin made their separation official, and viewable to millions of viewers on a "Jon & Kate" episode that aired in June. That episode was a "hit" and was seen by 10.6 million viewers, but ratings have declined since then.

The split came amid rumors of infidelity by both Jon and Kate Gosselin, something both denied. Since the split announcement, Jon's behavior hasn't exactly pleased TLC, cavorting around Europe with Hailey Glassman, for aexample. The series airs Mondays at 9 PM EDT.
