‘Jon & Kate’ bring in big ratings

New episodes draw 4 million viewers

TLC says the return of new episodes of “Jon & Kate Plus 8” delivered a robust audience on Monday. But it was nothing like the crowd of 10.6 million viewers who tuned in on June 22 when the Gosselins revealed their decision to separate.

For Monday’s back-to-back half-hours, “Jon & Kate” drew 4 million and 4.2 million viewers, TLC says.

After its six-week hiatus, the reality series has resumed its focus on documenting everyday activities with the estranged couple’s eight kids – 5-year-old sextuplets and 8-year-old twins.

It remains TLC’s biggest hit.
