Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

(Make sure to check out TV Envy’s Programming Schedule.)


MONDAY (11/23)
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 8pm):  “Molly fails a Spanish test and decides to stop speaking English until she masters the foreign language.” And you didn’t think anybody learned anything on this channel.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie’s male ego is bruised when he learns that he hasn’t been satisfying Chelsea.” Well, it has been a long time since he was a Hot Shot.

TLC reality star and media


sponge Kate Gosselin recently admitted in an interview that she’s not proud of how she treated Jon.

“I was very hard on him and I would never deny that. I felt very much like a lot of weight rested on my shoulders… I was wrong to treat him that way. Was it good, healthy and wonderful? No. Am I proud of those moments that were captured? No.”

Should we still be caring about these two? The way that they treat each other seems like they’re meant to be.

TLC Sues Jon Gosselin

Jon and Kate Gosselin

The divorce circus is going to have to add another ring to the drama soon - TLC just jumped into the fray. As if Jon and Kate Gosselin didn’t have enough troubles trying to sever the bonds between them and fending off the press, now Jon’s got to worry about a new lawsuit.

The network announced last month that it would be pulling from its roster of shows, now featuring the Gosselins minus Jon in a new series dubbed Kate Plus 8. Upon hearing this, Jon Gosselin refused to give TLC admittance to taping sessions, called his lawyer and created quite the media ruckus.

Because of Gosselin’s actions, Kate Plus 8 is “suspended indefinitely.” Previously, the show was supposed to premiere on November 2. TLC’s lawsuit claims the network has lost $30,000 plus due to Jon’s behavior, contractual violations they obviously won’t take lying down.

VIDEO: Nancy Grace Gets Inside Jon Gosselin’s Motives

Nancy Grace took the gloves off on The Insider recently when arrived on the set. The former lawyer interrogated Gosselin, seriously putting the father of eight on the spot.

At one point, Grace snidely commented on the companion Jon brought with him to the show. “Oh you’ve got your lawyer here, you’re afraid to answer questions? Whatever.”

“Why don’t you just quit arguing and work on your marriage, would that be a better idea?” She fired out to Gosselin.

All in all, it was pretty good TV. Grace really put the screws to Jon Gosselin, and audiences actually got to see him do a bit of squirming. Watch the video above for more.
