Jon & Kate Ratings Plummet

Tabloid notoriety hasn't helped Jon and Kate Gosselin's television show, it seems. Us Weekly reports that Jon & Kate Plus 8's return to TLC on Monday night saw a 61 percent drop in viewership. The previous episode drew a record-breaking 10.6 million viewers who witnessed the couple's announcement that, after 10 years of marriage, they would separate. By contrast, Monday's episode hovered around 4 million viewers. The episode showed Kate vacationing, then camping with the kids while Jon supervised a kitchen renovation. Meanwhile, Radar reports that a Gosselin babysitter recently slept over at Jon's house—overnight child care, or sexy rendezvous?
