Because Jon Gosselin is still banning cameras from following his children, the network does not have time to premiere the new project within the previous schedule.

TLC has come out with a statement in response to the floating rumors that "Jon & Kate Plus 8" will end next month. A spokeswoman from the network confirmed, " 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' is ending in mid-to-late November, as previously reported."

Additionally, TLC made it clear that it will still go ahead with the plan to begin a new chapter of the reality show, namely "Kate Plus Eight". However, due to Jon Gosselin's refusal to let his children be filmed, the new show will not be launched as scheduled on November 2.

"Jon & Kate Plus 8, the old incarnation, is over, as was announced a month ago. The show is not done. There is still every intention of the new incarnation to happen," TLC rep Laurie Goldberg said to TV Guide. "It won't start Nov. 2, but we hope to do Kate Plus Eight - whether it becomes a full series or a series of specials."

While Jon and ex-wife Kate Gosselin are still bickering about the decision to let their children be exposed on national television, TLC will respect it by halting all sort of production. "If this works out, we will film the kids again," Goldberg added. "No matter what, we're doing a show with Kate." The mother of eight reportedly claimed that her children are "angry" that the production has been stopped.

I that Jon matures up or is man enough to allow Kate Plus 8 to air full time. I hope that he will think of his children ahead of himself as he has been doing is the last while. I wish all to take great care in their future en devours. Jon don't let your ego get in the way of something that will be great for your children.

TLC let the Gosselin children get a normal whats left of their childhood. Tell Kate to get back to nursing and sell everything!

Please do not bring Kate back either on her own, or even with the kids. Just give the whole lot of them a rest for at least a year or more. I like Jon and do not believe most of the stories about him Thanks for listening.

I hope to see Kate plus 8 on tv. I have enjoyed all their shows and the children are well behaved. I think Jon does not want Kate to have any career and he is angry that his name was going to be dropped. He did withdraw money from their accout to buy a 180 K dollar ring for Haley. He should grow up. He does not care about the future of his children, since he gets drunk and smokes pot.

I agree Bridge Jon is like a duck out of water from some of the earlier shows you can tell he could not handle the daily in and outs of the family.It takes a strong person to handle that.

Good for TLC making it clear that they still intend to go ahead with plans for "Kate Plus 8". I will be watching it and enjoying NOT seeing that insipid retard.

I always enjoyed Jon on the show. He brought a special humor and quick wit often with just the look in his eyes. I felt a connect with Jon as I have also lived with a dominate partner but really Jon's actions of late prove Kate has been telling us the truth all summer. Jon, you need Kate. Kate, try to be the sweet, unspoiled Kate you use to be and congradulations on your new show. I still wish they could get back together.

about g-dmned time they put this slop out of it's misery.Hate and frat-boy are 2 of the worse examples of parenting on the face of the planet--their greed and "sense of entitlement" are sickening.A match made in media heaven.They're both simply pitiful,who's 15 min.of fame was up long ago.Hate,Frat-boy and TLC all are to blame for the mess that this formerly happy family finds itself in now.They'll have to deal with the consequences of their constant need to air their dirty laundry in public.Wonder when the kids will pen a tell-all book,telling us THEIR side of the story. TLC-no learning here.
