'Jon & Kate' favorite moments - an empty hour of TV

What a fitting ending for this show that has become so troubled and false in this last season. As TLC aired a cut-and-paste clip-job trip down memory lane of the five seasons of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" Monday night, Radaronline was reporting that Jon Gosselin was countersuing TLC for $5 million.

Aren't Jon and Kate Gosselin and TLC, which is suing Jon, all just perfectly made for each other? And aren't they going out with class during these three weeks. TLC said Monday night there are two weeks left of the show, and then that is it.

Monday's show was surprisingly empty and emotionally flat, and the reason context. Because TLC still has control of Kate, the cable channel used her as a hostess and moderator of sorts sitting on the coach commenting on the clips that viewers alledgedly picked as their favorites. As longtome viewers of the series know, some of the clips have charm and heart. But Kate's comments coming in and out of them were so distant and patently false, that you couldn't help but think, "I they mean so little to her, why should they mean anything to me."

Typical of her distant response, were the half dozen times she used the word "precious" to describe  a moment. When people use an adjective like that over and over, they usually mean the moment is anything but precious to them. What I'm saying here is Kate managed to suck any emotion there was right out of the montage of moments.

Not that it was a very skillfully crafted show. I watched it all, and I still can't figure out how they came up with a Top 10. The categories seemed totally random -- most shocking moment, best family moment, cutest thing a kid said, most memorable meltdown. The Top 10 list, though, had no correlation to how many moments they picked. The number one moment was supposedly Jon and kate announcing thgeir separation, but it was only one of three "most shocking moments."

Let someone else figure out how TLC was trying to scam viewers Monday night. Kate's robot-like, tinny, I'm-barely-interested attitude stole any meaning that there might have been in the evening.

Halfway through the hourlong show, Kelly posted a blow-by-blow, kindly trying to help me out. I am going to include her comment here. It is very good stuff. If you watched, or if you remember some of these moments, please weight in. Z needs your help and energy.

Here's Kelly:

If anyone wants to take on the second half hour of this Kate-fest, please have at it. I am worn out by Jon and Kate and TLC -- and all their crass, selfish craziness.
