Last Monday, the season premiere ofJon & Kate Plus 8received not only the highest TLC ratings in history but of any cable reality TV series.
Over 9.8 million people watched the season premiere of Jon & Kate Plus 8. According to Variety, only 4.6 million viewers watched last season’s finale, which held the current ratings record for TLC.
