Jon & Kate Plus 8 Season Premiere Draws Nearly 10 Million Vieweres

jonandkateplus8-052809The heavily hyped (thanks to controversy between the show’s stars Jon and Kate Gosselin) fifth season premiere of Jon & Kate Plus 8 drew a TLC record 9.8 million total viewers, including 4.3 million in the network’s target demographic (women 18-49).  The show also posted record ratings for the network among W18-34 (9.1 rating), M18-34 (3.6 rating) and A18-34 (6.3 rating).

To put those numbers in perspective, the premiere more than doubled the previous record viewership level for the show –4.6 million viewers (+113%) and 2.1 million W18-49 (+105%) for the fourth season finale this past March.

The show was the most-watched program on television — both cable and broadcast — Monday night.
