TLC is temporarily shutting down production on Jon and Kate plus Eight in order to let the family have some time to deal with their current situation. A spokesman for TLC told Showbiz Tonight:
“TLC continues to support the Gosselin family and will work closely with them to determine the best way to continue to tell their story as they navigate through this difficult time. Following a retrospective of Jon and Kate's first 10 years airing on June 29th, the show will be on hiatus until August 3rd. During this time the family will take some time off to regroup and then a modified schedule will be in place to support the family's transition.”
Is this too little too late? Should TLC have pulled the plug on the show sooner? What do you think?
