TLC Kicks Jon Gosselin to the Curb

by at . Comments

Despite settling its lawsuit with Jon Gosselin and retaining his services legally and exclusively, TLC does not want the douche back on the air anytime soon.

Or at all.

TLC’s parent company sued Jon for breaching his contract and won a preliminary injunction against him in late 2009 before the two sides settled this week.

While the issue of whether or not to bring back Jon & Kate Plus 8 has been discussed internally at TLC, the one component that everyone agrees on is this:

NO JON.

“TLC is done with Jon. They have him under contract still, but they don’t plan to use him,” a source dished, although it remains unclear if / how Jon & Kate Plus 8 (or just Kate Plus 8) will still be brought back in some capacity.

“The show could come back as a series of specials,” the source said. “It made the network a lot of money.” Especially after Jon began railing Deanna Hummel.

At least in the immediate future, however, the network has no plans to bring the show back right now, and is focusing instead on Kate Gosselin’s new show.

Jon? He's got nothing going on. Terms were confidential, but the lawsuit settlement likely bars him from making money via other entertainment channels.

We just feel bad for Morgan Christie. She's dating Jon for publicity, and between this and general lack of interest in him, it looks like he's going to get less.

The show started out innocently as a family show.For whatever reasons that it became a battle ground for the parents,it is no longer the show that millions fell in love with.The negative publicity concerning both parents could not have helped with the ratings for the show,someone had to go, and it ended up being Jon,who yanked his children off as a reason to justify he not being wanted as part of the show.As a working mother of 8,Kate will continue to move on and be a working single mother.Jon with his wanna-be-free/wanna-be/playboy behavior,well Romeo's outta there,and good riddance!!!
