  1. Since TLC stands for The Learning Channel – I’d like to know what they expect people to learn from this family. There is nothing unique about them , no particular talents worthy of displaying, nothing noteworthy to say – nothing at all. TLC might as well just pick any American family out, pay them some money and follow them. They could call it something like – A Day in the Life of an American Family. At least we can see how different families go about their day and families would have an opportunity to make a little money. These Gosslin kids and their mother who thinks the world owes her are well over cooked.

  2. Why is Kate putting her eight kids back on TV. Does she really need fame and money that bad. Remember we watched all those kids’s most
    embarrassed moments at the hands of Kate. No I won’t watch it because you never know what she said to the kids before the taping. Enough is enough.

  3. Sure, I’ll watch. The entire hook of the original show was to see how much mom and dad hated each other. And who could out insult each other. And how soon it would be until they finally got divorced. Now, I want to know if mom has convinced the kiddos to hate dad as much as she does.

  4. NO I will not watch..She is very rude to people and rude and nasty to her children!
    I have been very disappointed with TLC choices of programs. TLC is the learning channel right? What are we learning from your programs such as Honey Boo Boo (DISGUSTING) and other programs that my family cannot watch that are just as disgusting. Have you all gone mad?
