Jon & Kate will end forever in Nov., report says; TLC: “a limited number of episodes [remain]”

Jon & Kate Plus Eight may end forever next month, if a tabloid report–or even TLC’s own promos–are to be believed.

With production shut down, tabloid web site Radar reports that the series “will officially end in mid to late November” because “sources outside the network [say] that there is just enough unused new footage to take them through about another month.”

It’s possible to find evidence in for that from the network itself. In a TLC promo, an announcer says, “With only a limited number of episodes remaining, Jon and Kate spend quality time with those who matter.” Of course, that could just mean before a break, or the change to the Kate-centered series.

As The Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik says, “Wouldn’t it be nice if just once TLC could be straight up about this show rather than vague and duplicitous in keeping all its options open to go in whatever direction the wind blows with these two selfish, immature foolish people?”

Zurawik, by the way, has an awesome rant in which he calls both Jon and Kate “Lying liars who lie on national TV,” because a judges’ order that Jon return money proved that both were not truthful about the situation. He talks to Kate’s attorney and concludes, “Do you think they lie to their children this way? What a sorry pair.”
