I come home from band practice the other night and my wife is watching a TV show called Jon & Kate +8... I only saw about 10 minutes of the show, I was threatened if I tried to change the channel!. It's a reality show about a family with 8 kids, several being twins/multis (kinda an octo-mom lite show). It simply details their day to day existance.... whiny kids, the naggy wife, the dad resigned... basic family existance and by my way of thinnking, BORING!!!
So, what is the attraction of the show? I was raised in a big family, to me it's not TV worthy stuff. My wife simply said, "it's a mom thing, you wouldn't understand". I guess it's popular, so anyone want to explain the attraction? I'm really curious.....

Small kids love that show - and I find it entertaining too (in small amounts).

People are always fascinated with other peoples lifestyles...which is why there are so many reality shows and gossip magazines. Human nature I guess.

I watch it sometimes too. I am not sure why its interesting because you are right, its kind of boring.

I would not compare them to the Octo-mom though. Jon and KAte plus 8 are not on welfare, there is a mom and dad, jon has a job etc.. I am sure Octo-mom thought she would be received as well as them. Not so much.

My wife is HOOKED on Kate + 8 and the "little people show" little people big world...or whatever its called. I CAN NOT watch Kate! She is just flat out RUDE to her husband! There is no way I could live with that woman. The only good thing I can see from the show, is that my wife see's that our small children ( 20mo's and 4 1/2) aren't unique with their moons and temper tantrums, good to see most children have similar issues.
They are to be commended though.... Can you even imagine what a job that must be to raise 8 children? WOW! We had good friends that had triplet boys before our babies came. Always wanted twins before living next to the boys...... not any more. WAY moocho work!

Blind date is good...... but the old "love connection" with Chuck and his gold rolex was the BEST! Hooked on Cheaters also...way twisted show.

I'm just waiting for Jon & Kate +8 to be an eppisode on "The First 48". If anybody could snap and kill somebody it'd be that poor Jon guy. I'd have gone nuts a long time ago if I was that poor bastard. Kate is a Biatch!

My wife watches that as well. If I'm home when it's on, it's usually time to head for the computer and do a little internet surfing or reading. I work nights and usually can't get to sleep before 2am but that sh!t'll put you to sleep in a minute!!!!

I tell my wife "We have two little girls that cry, why do you want to watch other kids cry on TV?"

You can say it... she's a bitch and then some. The bitch thinks it's cute to slap him int the face. I'd deck her.... she maynot do it anymore but she used to.

Wife and kids watch the show. I leave the room.... it's more productive being on Performance Boats and Riverdaves :p

I'd bet the "octamom" watches that show. :)bulb

Sleeper CP :D
