That would be nice. I'm tired of seeing them on all the tabloids everytime I go into the supermarkets. I wish tv networks would go back to producing entertaining televisions shows, rather than finding the random talentless people on the street and giving them a show.

No reason to stop - the public eats it up.

Blame the people watching. I do.

Personally, I don't particularly care, but I know that my wife likes the show so I thought I would see what the latest was.
I clicked on this thread ONLY to see if there was a "who gives a shit?" option.

Perhaps GizmoDVD and I clicked on the thread for the same reason - I'm just so sick of hearing about this freakshow...and Octomom's apparently going to be next up for a TV show as well. I haven't bothered to read the rest of the thread to see if Gizmo did reply to your question, but since you don't care about it either, if the option was there I guess we all would have voted the same in the thread's poll.

Based on Kate's love of the fame, money, doing book tours for a living, she even said I think on the season premiere that they both decided to do the show and aren't changing that anytime soon (read she loves public appearances for her occupation) and Jon hates the spotlight, but loves the money, so they'll keep doing the show, I guess I'll have to vote seperation.

I'm surprised nothing's been leaked at all on this. If it's not something huge and is just some lame publicity thing, my wife's going to be ticked.

No kidding. When you walk in to have that style you might as well ask for the "Total ****". I will miss this show only for the enjoyment I get of seeing the clips crucified on The Soup. They must have been making some decent cash for him to stay married to that gargoyle for this long.

Am I the only one disturbed by the fact that they're now using the kids as billboards for more freebies?

Did Jon really throw out a dying soldiers reference? Do they not understand that they're getting exactly what they signed up for?

With Jon paying the outrageous child support Kate will probably ask for (the amount it actually takes + the amount she just wants to have), will he even be able to live in a NY Apartment?

Re: Jon & Kate announcement: 06/22/09

My question, how longer are studios and TV networks going to continue milking this shit? I'm sure that right now there is some network out there that is thinking of throwing millions of dollars to Kate to start a show Kate plus 8. Then it will spin-off to Kate trying to find a husband. Then it will go to Kate dealing with rehab. Then Kate trying to mend the relationship with Jon. Then Kate going back to rehab again. Then Kate fighting for custody. And on and on and on.

Don't give them any ideas.

I can understand hating the show, but hoping for them to get a divorce is pretty shitty.
