Might America finally be coming to its senses?
Granted, far too many people still somehow fear that terrorist suspects currently held at Guantanamo Bay would escape from maximum security prisons if held there inside the country.
But at least far fewer people watched this week's installments of Jon & Kate Plus 8. That's a start!
Fueled by ongoing gossip stories about the marriage between Jon and Kate Gosselin, the May 25 premiere of the show attracted a mind-numbing 9.8 millions viewers, earning higher ratings than the season finale of Lost on ABC.
However, the two newest episodes of the series, which aired on Monday, scored only 5.5 million and 6 million viewers, respectively.
That's still far more than we'd like to see, but we can't expect everyone to tune out at once. We can only hope that the prospect of having sex with Kate Gosselin helps turn more people off for next week.
