(Newser) – Our long national nightmare is over: Jon and Kate Plus 8 airs its last episode tonight, although that’s no guarantee the tabloid-magnet Gosselins are going away. The series is set to end with more of a whimper than a bang—the kids visit a dairy farm and firehouse, reports the New York Post—but, TMZ adds, far be it from Jon to let the show end without taking the opportunity for one last douchey soundbite.

“New York’s nice, too. It’s three hours from my house, where my kids are,” he says in a clip. “I have a place to go. When I get sick of the city, and all the press and the media and everything like that, I go back to my country place and I’m chill. So it’s like, I’ve got the best of both worlds right now.”
