Kate Gosselin Network Shopping For Dating Show

Submitted by on August 1, 2012 – 9:36 pm Comments

America is no stranger to dating shows, in fact it is a love affair that lasted since 1965, long before we had crazier and cattier women, we simply had “The Dating Game.” However as society has “evolved” and needs have become allot more “complicated” we have seen shows like “Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire” and even “Flavor of Love.”

So many of these shows have assaulted our senses they make us laugh, and every now and then wonder “really.” We have seen a vast array of questionably “eligible” women and men over the years, like Kalon McMahon, on Season 8 of the Bachlorette, called Bachlorette Emily’s child “baggage.” I wonder why such a charming man was so quickly ousted??

So what would have been the outcome if McMahon had found out the producer of the dating show he was on was none other than Kate Gosselin, from none other than “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” and her spin off “Kate Plus Eight.” Well it is not likely that he would have been selected in the first place. According to E! News, the mother extraordinaire is trying to find a network to pick up her dating show.

The mom is ready to finally move on from her philandering ex-husband and finally find true love. However I can see the hesitation from networks to pick up the proposed dating show because Gosselin has 8 children, one set of twins and one set of sextuplets. That would intimidate any man. Although maybe CBS would be interested in picking it up her show, because it would be sure to last longer than the latest dating show flop “Three.”

Granted it did premiere during the Olympics but even longer running shows have not had ratings falter like that of “Three” Which has now been axed after only 2 episodes. What are your thoughts on Kate Gosselin’s dating show? She does have a rather tall order to fill, especially since you can watch her previous relationship play out on Netflix, and it was not exactly a picnic. The show would likely be Kate Plus Eight all over again with some random dates thrown in and they really were not interested in keeping that up, hence its cancellation.

However Gosselin states “the kids really miss being on television” and so she would really like to get back into television again. Kate at 8 and 11 I doubt the kids miss being on TV, maybe the money and extravagant trips at TLC’s cost but not the actual cameras. Whatever the case may be, it is possible we will be seeing a Kate & A Date Plus 8 sometime in the near future.
