Totally different from Jon Gosselin according to his boss, Eric Hayes is a father of 10 whose priority is his family.

TLC has assigned "Table for 12" to replace "Jon & Kate Plus 8" on Mondays. The show is about the Hayes family which consists of parents Eric and Betty, two set of twins, and a sextuplets. It has been aired on TLC since March this year, taking the Tuesdays slot but it will start a new schedule starting next month.

Eric Hayes is a policeman while his wife Betty is a stay-at-home mom who takes care of their 10 children. The couple who resides in Central New Jersey has three sets of multiples via fertility treatments, 12-year-old twin boys Kevin and Kyle, 10-year-old twins Kieran and Meghan, and 4-year-old sextuplets Tara, Rachel, Ryan, Connor, EJ and Rebecca. The latest has cerebral palsy.

On how this show would be different from "Plus 8", Radar Online obtained a testimony from Eric's boss Bart Lombardo who said that Eric is none like Jon Gosselin. "There is no way Eric Hayes will behave like that - he is one of the best officers we have," Bart gushed. "Eric is a 'squared-away' type of guy who is focused on his career and his family which has always been his number one priority."

It is still unclear when the transition will begin but "Jon & Kate Plus 8" is slated to end on November 23 meaning "Table for 12" could start on November 30.

"Jon & Kate Plus 8" comes to an end as Jon and Kate Gosselin decide to end their marriage. Jon has prevented the crew from filming his eight kids while on the other hand Kate insists on having the show to go on. TLC has signed a new deal with Kate to have her solo show called "Kate Plus Eight" but production is not yet kicked off because Jon has not given his consent.

BARF! Another family-mama-baby-drama? GIVE ME A BREAK! Here is a concept...Why doesn't TLC drop all the stupid shows about huge families and replace them with something EDUCATIONAL?....Someone tell me why they are called The LEARNING Channel?

More kids to be exploited? Think I'll pass.

The Hayes seem genuinely committed to their family, not the media. And they have things a lot tougher than the Gosselins,since one of their sextuplets is handicapped.They are a breath of fresh air, compared to the drama of watching the Gosselins. Good luck to them!

This family seems like a great family, but I will always miss Jon and Kate and the 8 kids. I think they know they made mistakes and were we in their situation we might have done the same. I hope with counseling they get back together or at least learn how to respect each other again. I wish the Gosselins only the best. They were young parents who love their kids and tried to do the best for them.Their world got out of control. I hope now it can be fixed.They do have morals and values and stop being so nasty posters!Everybody makes mistakes!

Perhaps Kate will watch and see how a LARGER family that includes a handicapped child can actually LIVE and not be swallowed up in their own personal trips to the spa and make overs!

Don't forget Jon and Kate were once a "normal" family.

Glad to hear the Hayes family will take their place. They are a normal, loving family with real family (and extended family) interaction. Hugs and laughs, good wholesome family.

So TLC is going to distroy another family

It's nice to see a REAL man take over the airwaves, however, you have to be VERY STRONG to survive a TV show like that. The money, attention, stress can break up the strongest of families.

I love the Hayes family. What the Gosselins became were way before we got involved with their lives. Kate had issues from season 1! We just excused her bad behavior because she kept telling us how "exhausted" she was. Blaming others for her bad behavior has always been her game. The Hayes family appears to be solid stable people. Wow. How novel!

Seems not too long ago, Jon & Kate were a nornmal family. I just don't understand people, surly you watched because you seem to know what you are commenting on. I just hope that the Hayes family are not hounded by the press like the Gosslins.

I quit watching TLC completely. Their programs are insulting, and there's nothing to learn from them... except for one show "What Not to Wear". I learned alot of fashion tips there, but sure wish they would air a show that showed a woman put together with clothes not so expensive. In this day, that's what we need. "The Learning Channel" it's not. It doesn't live up to its name. It should be renamed TSC "The Snooping Channel", because that's what it does. It feeds into peoples' desire to rubberneck and then gossip about it.

I am so glad their reign of bs is over, TLC gave them every chance to make it good and look how they show appreciation, they abused the show, abused TLC and each other and still expect to make the big money.. everyone is glad they will be gone, to bad the kids suffer because of the parents.

one question-- if Jon & Kate are wrong for "filming their children" then why is it correct for Table for12? Don't get me wrong, I enjoy both shows. But technically, your are still filming children.

Good News, espically for the children.

So happy that Jon and Kate is ending. Please do not bring on Kate Plus Eight! Glad to see you are airing a real family.

I really like the Hayes.My son is a policeman.He works very hard to help people & to keep drugs out of the community.Police make very little pay compared to much easier jobs.He loves his job & would likely for free but he loves his wife & son{as we do}and wants them to have a decent life.If people don't like J&K that's their choice but please don'i call the kids names.All kids are God's children.Thanks.

Glad to see Jon & Kate go.Both of them are ridiculous. TLC,keep family shows on,keep Kate&her chldren off the air. That family has had their 15 min(and then some ) of fame. Let someone with morals and values like Table for 12 fill this Monday night slot. I am sick of Kate,and Jon..not to mention the antics of "Mady" the brat!!
