(Newser) – Fans may be enthralled with Jon and Kate Gosselin's marital trouble, but they appear to be rapidly growing bored with their TV series, reports Radar. Audience figures for Jon & Kate Plus 8 plunged by more than half this week from an all-time high of 10 million for the season opener. Monday's program was a bit of a special, too, marking the program's 100th episode, that featured chef Emeril Lagasse cooking with 8 kids.

Self-described "huge" fan Tori Spelling is disappointed the series has "gone to an odd place," she told Entertainment Weekly. "I loved the fact that they were a normal family. It’s hard for me now to see them on the cover of People magazine."
