The June revival of Kate Plus 8 went over exceedingly well. Kate Gosselin and her eight kids will get additional hours in multiple specials while on a family vacation to Boston and other New England areas. The specials are slated to premiere in December.
Numbers from the TLC special (three years after cancellation) reveal 2.1 million viewers for the premiere. A strong turnout, though no comparison to the Jon & Kate Plus 8 original numbers upwards of 10 million, from when the original series aired. Since, Kate has appeared on DWTS and remained a tabloid and gossip fixture since her 2009 divorce from Jon Gosselin, who has since appeared on Couples Therapy with girlfriend Liz Janetta.
