Gosselins sans sofa

Jon and Kate Gosselin, stars of the hit TLC reality show along with their eight children, have moved on - and, apparently, so has their couch, says TVWeek.com.

Here's what TLC President Eileen O'Neill told the press at the TV Critics Press Tour on Thursday about Jon & Kate Plus 8, according to the Live Feed and a number of other blogs, as well as Discovery press relations personnel - ahead of Monday's new episode at 9 p.m.

"I have a suspicion that Jon and Kate may be on your minds, so before I introduce today's panels let me give you a brief update.

"Over the last four years and through 100 episodes, we've captured this remarkable family's entertaining chaos. Viewers fell in love and the show developed a passionate, loyal following.

"But this past spring, life intervened and the family's status changed. It was certainly something we never expected nor planned to have happen. But this has resulted in unprecedented television.

"Our approach to the circumstance was simple: to cover the family with great care and thoughtfulness as they dealt with a subject that is all too familiar to many American families today.

"Jon and Kate have never said they were perfect, which has made them relatable and created an undeniable connection with the viewers. We will continue to capture this family's journey in a respectful and sensitive way.

"But I will tell you, the iconic couch is gone. Jon and Kate will now have separate chairs for their interviews. You're still going to see two parents that love their kids, but you'll be seeing them parenting separately.

"You'll see what it's like when Kate has to put a tent up for a backyard camping experience by herself. Or, see Jon trying to cook up a pizza for the kids. As far as new people and places that may be cycling into Jon and Kate's lives, we are taking it on a case-by-case basis.

This is real life. It's important to remember that our cameras are only there for moments in time, and those moments have limits.

Keaton show on HBO

Diane Keaton is venturing into series television with a half-hour comedy on HBO.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the untitled project (written by Marti Noxon) stars the Oscar winner as a feminist icon who attempts to reignite the movement by starting a sexually explicit magazine for women.

The comedy hails from Grady Twins Productions, a production company recently launched by Miss Noxon and Dawn Parouse Olmstead. Miss Noxon, Miss Parouse Olmstead and Miss Keaton are executive producing.

We've came a long way since the Kinsey report; women are more sexual now, Miss Noxon said, referring to Alfred Kinsey's controversial 1953 report Sexual Behavior in the Human Female.

Miss Noxon said she had carried the germ of the idea for a show that touches upon feminism as long as she can remember. She was 12 when her mother came out as a radical feminist and a lesbian and recalls juggling her mom's beliefs - which included dismissing leg shaving as giving in to patriarchalism - with her own interests. …
