"No Title"

The news about the breakup of reality-TV-made celebrities Jon and Kate was accompanied by notification that their show “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” would be going on hiatus – for one month, returning in August. My personal reaction was WHY?!? and WTF?!? and other things starting with W, but apparently, the serial adopters are under contract for 34 more episodes before the TLC channel will allow them to fade away into much-deserved obscurity. The damage this does to the “everybody will be famous for fifteen minutes” truism is shocking, but it also raises an interesting possibility to me… shouldn’t the show be re-titled after the split?

“Jon vs. Kate With Eight In Between”

(if they split custody) “Jon Plus Four and Kate Plus Four”

(if Kate gets full custody) “Kate Plus Eight Minus Jon”

(or) “Octomom II”

“See? Eight Is MORE Than Enough”

“No, It’s Not Your Fault Times Eight”

“Jon Plus Eight Mistresses” (now casting)

“How I Lost Your Mother”

Your Turn...
