  • Maddys mudes

    I can not understand why Maddy is such a drama queen. I don't care where they go what they do she is always upset, mad and obnoxious
  • waste of your tv time..

    This program is a waste of your air time. I wouldn't watch her on tv if you paid me.
  • TLC without the TLC instead we see pain

    They changed the name of the show wow these people care desparate one of them leave What the.... stupid! One of them want to stay for the money what about the kids these parents care too much about their issues this drops the bomb on TLC. Its the end of TLC! I do not feel like watching it after this. We only see one of them! I hate watching shows knowing that someone quit. Care about your kids is what everyone should say to them they have to feel the pain and get dragged around too! Come on why are they splitting up beacuse they don't care about their kids thats why!
  • Loved in the beging.

    Felt so bad for the children.
  • A good show at first, but I immediately sensed the impending doom.

    I'll admit, I watched the show in the early days. And I liked it. It was a good show back then. I mainly watched it for the kids. It was fun seeing each child's personality, and how they reacted to the world around them.

    Jon and Kate, on the other hand, I favored less. On top of that, I immediately sensed trouble between them; I can distinctly remember watching earlier episodes and thinking, 'I wonder when they'll completely fall apart?'

    So needless to say, I wasn't exactly surprised when everything...well, fell apart. I began sensing it after they moved into the new house. That was my first indication that Kate, specifically, had changed. I remember watching the episode in which they got the dogs (which they had to return because Kate really didn't want them, surprise surprise), taking one look at Kate, and going "What in the crud is THAT?"

    It's only gotten worse from there. Now that the divorce is happening, Jon and Kate have been acting like completely spoiled brats, in my opinion. Divorce is hard for any kid to handle, I'm assuming; imagine what those poor children must be feeling, seeing their parents act like they are. The children are the only people I have any amount of sympathy for in this case.

    I have no sympathy for Jon or Kate, because to me, they've just become greedy, desperate for attention, and contradicting (saying they have no money to pay bills, then talking about buying jewelry; saying they want to be amicable, then saying they hate each others' guts, etc.). Bottom line, I have a hard time believing that anything either of them say is genuine at this point.

    So...there you have it. The way I see it, what started as an innocent, clean-cut show has become a disgraceful mess. I do, however, hope that Jon and Kate get their money situation sorted out; they're going to need to in order to pay for the eight sets of therapy bills they'll need to be paying.
  • This show was okay until they started exploiting the kids.

    When it first premiered, Jon & Kate Plus 8 was a decent show. It documented the lives of the Gosselin family of ten. It was interesting to see how the parents would survive raising eight children. Recently, however, Jon had been rumored to be having an an affair and the focus shifted from the children to Jon & Kate's crumbling marriage. What really annoys me is that when the focus was gradually shifting back to the children, people were complaining because of that. If they are going to do this, they should at least change the name. I suggest something like "Reality Television Destroys a Family". At least that would make more sense.

    Grade: C- (newer episodes)

    Grade: B (older episodes)
  • Will Jon and Kate be ending, who knows.

    I love the show. It's amazing how two parents can raise eight kids so wonderfully. Sadly I watched tonight's show and almost wanted to cry but knew it was coming. Jon and Kate splitting up is horrible but them arguing in front of their children is horrible too. I wish them well though because I have parents who were divorced and I know how hard it was but they got along once they got back together after they worked things out. I hope the children with gradually come to understand and that Jon and Kate break it to them gently.
  • Cute show!

    The show started out with Korean-American Jon who meets up with Kate, a white American. They marry and then, by fetility drugs, get pregnant with twins. And deciding to have one more baby, they wanted to do drugs again. But instead of one baby, they have six babies. They have five girls and three boys. They are Christians and that they try to live by their faith. Only thing that nags at people is that Kate treats Jon like trash. And that Jon is doing all he can. To please her and the kids. Sadly it just isn't enough. Wished she treated him with respect.
  • adorable

    i love watching these children each week. they are all so adorable and they each have distinct personalities. ive watched since the begining i ive loved watching them grow. i only have two problems with the show. mady is an annoying drama queen i we all know where she gets it from (her pain in the you know what mother). however the cutness of the sextuplets outweights that. i do feel bad for Jon and Kate now that the paparazzi are after them and their mariage is strained but to be honest from the begining i didnt think they would last. she is just too uptight for him.
  • not my show and good luck for parents

    Children, two of whom are twins, Mady and Cara, and 6 of whom are sextuplets, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel. Good luck for the parents.
    This show is not for me. I admit that the children are very cute and the parents are kind of funny but I don't care how others raised their kids. The show must stand like special. It is a useless thing to change it to series according to me.
    Why it turns out to be series? That is because of most of the watchers are parents so that the show is amusing for them and get ratings.
  • Not for me...

    I imagine it must be difficult to coordinate life in general around very young children of multiple births.
    But there is nothing in the world that would interest me or make me want to watch someone do just that.
    This show and others like it, which started as "specials" should have stayed as specials. THAT I could watch, though I wouldn't necessarily...
    I love kids...have a couple of my own and I wouldn't trade them for the world (though on occasion I could be tempted by a poke in the eye with a sharp stick and a bottle of Jack!!). But I can't imagine anyone would be interested in how we raised them, and if they were interested I'd likely be calling in the law!
    Nope. Not my cuppa...and I am sorry to viewers who do like the show, but I find Kate to be really unlikable! Kids ARE cute though...
  • Jon and kate plus 8 is about a couple with a set of twins and sextuplets.

    I absolutely love this show.It rocks.I have finally watched enough episodes to be able to tell all eight of the kids apart.Hannah is my favorite.I think she is most like me.Very smart and mature.Leah is adorable.She speaks very very well for her age.But so tiny that one.Alexis is HILARIOUS!! She is so out there and loud.Collin is very take charge.funny little guy.Joel is "daddy's son" his own words.Aden is so cute.the professor is so in to animals.those glasses just make him even more adorable.Jon and kate have raised their kids right.Mady is a little diva, but that adds drama to the show.Cara is "mommy's helper" said by kate.Very much like her momma.
  • what a great family. the kids are so adorable. it's really interesting to see how a large family manages their daily lives.

    i started watching this show because the family actually lives only 2 hours from my own hometown in pa. i was proud that my state is being portrayed in a positive light, a lot of ppl think pa is a rural area. the kids are so cute and since i've been watching from the beginning, i feel like they're a part of my own family. i've literally watched them grow up. my two kids, boys 7 and 8, also love this show. they have their favorites and know exactly who is who. the best eps are the ones where you see basic daily activities. lately, the family has been going on A LOT of vacations. but all in all, a great and addictiong program. if you like kids, this is one for you. i can't say it enough, they're so cute to watch.
  • I love to watch this show. I tend to learn new things everytime I watch it. The kids are adorable. It is just a fabulous show to watch. It is truely my favorite. I look foward to watching it every monday.

    This show is wonderful. I find myself learning new things everytime that I watch it. Like the episode where Kate is getting ready to go in for sugery. She prepares meals for Jon and the kids. I noticed when she was cooking meatloaf she just threw everything that needed to be chopped up in the food processor and put it in the mixture. I sat there and thought you know how much time that would save me for when Im cooking. I have Eczema on my hand and it gets really bad where if Im chopping things that the food irritates it. But Im planning on getting a food processor soon. I think that is a great idea. Thank you Kate!!!
  • A show I love to watch

    Jon & Kate plus eight is a reality TV show which follows the lives of the Gosselins and their 8 children. Jon, Kate and their kids are really part of a unique family. Jon and Kate first had twin girls, Maddie and Cara, they then decided to add another child to their family, but got more than they bargained for, Kate became pregnant with 6 babies. The show basically follows the family (Jon, Kate, Maddie, Cara, Alexis, Leah, Hannah, Aden, Joel and Colin), as they go about their daily lives. I enjoy this show, as it gives a good insight into what life is like with multiple children and the chaos which it can cause.
  • I really enjoy Jon & Kate plus 8, this is a really good real life show, life is not always a bowl of happiness and this shows real life..enjoy it. Why is more of Kate's & Jon's family members a part of helping? grandparents aunts uncles?

    I really enjoy Jon & Kate plus 8, this is a really good real life show life is not always a bowl of happiness and this shows real life..enjoy it. Why is more of Kate's & Jon's family members a part of helping? grandparents aunts uncles any other family that would love to be these childrens lives? I look forward to watching them grow. God bless Jon & Kate for stying together threw it all, they are a perfect couple. They stick by one anothers punishments for the children and they work well together, God has blessed you both by giving you not only a healthy twins, but also 8 healthy new born babies born all together. You are a Saint!
  • The best show on TLC. My fovorite show the best ever.

    I love this show. Everyone is sooooo funny it. Should go forever. It never gets old. My favorite is the one in Hawaii. The boys are the best no doubt. Me, my mom and my sisters all love this show. Even most of my friends watch this show. People who say they hate it have no taste in great shows. I think it is the best show ever. Still it is the best show E V E R. I think everyone should watch this show. Kate is More high strung than my mom. I'd hate to eat all organic food all the time.
  • I absolutely love this show! And the kids are so adorable!

    I especially love Alexis (because of her obsession with "aldergators") and Leah (because she's a little princess and very smart and hard-headed). I've seen every single episode since the show started and I'll even watch the reruns even if I've seen it 100 times. The girls (including Kate) looked very pretty in their dresses (I also loved the flowers in their hair) when they were in Hawaii when Jon and Kate renewed their vows. The boys (including Jon) also looked very handsome in their outfits during their trip in Hawaii. One of the best reality shows next to Little People Big World.
  • What a cute/enjoyable show!

  • Jon and Kate plus 8 follows the life of Jon and Kate Gosselin and their kids, twin girls Mady and Cara and Sextuplets Alexis,Hannah,Leah,Aaden,Colin,and Joel.

    I LOVE this show i think i am obsssed with it,i never miss a new episode. All of the kids are so cute,my favourite is Leah cause she is just so small and adorable! Im pretty sure i've seen every episode! I liked it when each of the kids got their own special day and got to go to a place with Jon and Kate (but the boys just went with Jon) Some episodes are not as exciting as others,but they are still good. I think the way Jon and Kate raise the kids is great. It's fun watching these cute kids grow up :)
  • I love Jon and kate plus 8! Im obsessed i never miss a episode! The kids are soo cute. I love all of them. I hate when peope pick on them. Im soo obssesed i have a website about them and i make videos i have a wall in my room filled with pictures.

    i like some old ones too. there just an awsome family. every monday i get my DVR set. i have every episode recoarded it! and im hopeing to get the DVD and book soon. i love the gosselins!
  • This show became a must watch immediately. I was addicted the first season. Now that I'm busier I haven't been able to catch it quite as often, but I have it set on my dvr to watch when I have time.

    I think it is wonderful to expereience their life and how they accomplish the easy tasks with 8 kids! I get frustrated with my two, I love watching them deal with traveling. Patience - boy they have it! At first Kate drove me nuts with her ocd behavior - but I would be the same way if I had 8 kids. She makes it work and thank God Jon is a very understanding man... it takes understanding and patience to make that household run. It's good to know that this show has allowed them more opportunities to spend time with their kids and for Jon and Kate to be at home more often with the kids. I can't wait to see the first day of school for the 6. What a day that will be. Give this show a test run... now that the kids are older, there is much more interesting show topics.
  • havent missed a show yet....

    Love the show,havent missed a one, love how organized how kate is and how jon is so involved as a dad. Their personailities for the show are great. I have seen other large sized family shows and they just arent the same. Joh and kate are perfect for each other and just the two to have this large family and have this show. My husband even keeps up with it when its on. Dont know how they manage this family and then to have camera crews also on guys rock, keep up the good work...hope they are around enough to see them as teenagers, now wont that make for some real craziness.
  • I love this series, but the editing and nonlinear story telling makes me believe the production team needs some experience. The probsbly take 12 minutes of REAL story and use it 4 times in each episode. How iritating

    This would be great with better editing and producing. Using bits of information 3 or 4 times in a singlr episode is really irratating. I love the series, but channel surf during the redundant portions. Try to just tell the story in a traightforward manner. We who love the series would love to see a simple presentation of the story and not 4 2 minute bits of information intercut 4 different times in a single episode. Seeing Collin push Alexis is cute the first time, but the 4th time you see it in a single episode you have to wonder if there really is an editor working this series.
  • I'm 14 and I watch this show! I think its awsome and I love all the kids there ssssooo funny!

    This show is very cool! I love how all the kids have there own little personality!
    I remember one day my sister was watching this show and she was laughing cuz of how silly and funny the kids where being and I asked her what she was watching and she said jon and kate plus 8! I asked her what it was about and I thought it was interesting so i watched it with her! I love all the words the kids use like "hair pane"
    I watch this show whenever its on it always brightens up my day when my family has just got in an and my sister watch it together all the time and we always laugh!!
  • im 13 and i watch this show its the best show ever jon and kate rock.i look forward to it all the time.

    i love the show much i wish they could put it on everyday. im 13 and i watch this show my friends probably think im crazy but im not its a good show.jon and kate are such good parents i hope i can grow up and be just as good of parents as they sister is 5 and she even likes that sow.but i must admit the show is very kid friendly.i love how its a real life show.there are so many other good things about the that i cant even begin to explain.but thats all for now.hope you enjoy bye.
  • This show definitely is an inspiration to moms everywhere.

    Even though I am not a mom, this show must help thousands of parents everywhere. Jon & Kate go on with their day-to-day lives as normal & easy as possible. They're a not so normal family with eight kids, but they handle everything SOO well. It's astonishing. I really love this show. I love watching to see what the family is doing next & how they're going to deal with everything, and get the kids ready. It's really truly something amazing. They show that no one is perfect, but that everyone can do their best. I recommend this show to anyone, especially mothers with kids, or aspiring mothers.
    It shows not everything is that bad, and everyone can live through something with smiles.
    & you gotta admit, those kids are the cutest!
  • I love this show.It's my favorite!I love Aiden and Leah.They all are adorable but those are my favorites.

    I love this show. I watch every episode.Leah and Aiden are my favorites but they all our cute. I think Jon and Kate are amazing parents. I am a single mother of four and I can barely manage. I love how they make time alone for each kid so none of them feel left out.How do they keep from ripping their hair out? I hope this show continues.When the kids go to bed i turn the TV on and thank god that I don't have to watch Disney for the rest of the night.I think their amazing.

  • I don't know how you do it!!

    8 kids. WOW. that is utterly amazing. This show has become one of my favorites, as watching it is just way fun! Whether I'm giggling at the end of an episode, or feeling as exhausted as Jon and Kate look, I always wish that the new episode was airing right away! It is truly awesome how Jon and Kate can be such loving, caring parents to each and every one of their kids. They never make exceptions or limitations because of their large family. They do things as if they have only one child to attend to. Jon and Kate plus 8 is a wonderful family show, sure to keep viewers of any age captivated!
