VOTE: End of 'Jon and Kate'?

Ratings are steadily declining for 'Jon and Kate Plus 8.'

Ratings are steadily declining for "Jon and Kate Plus 8." Only 3.5 million viewers tuned in for Monday's show on TLC.

That number is down 4 million viewers from the previous week. A record 10.6 million tuned in when Kate and Jon Gosselin announced their separation in June.

Mediaweek's Senior Television Editor Marc Berman tells Us Weekly, "Once all of this dies down and Jon and Kate aren't in the news anymore, this could be a problem for the show." He adds, "They divorce, they move on with their lives and so do the viewers."

Berman says Sonny and Cher are another example. When the musical couple split, Cher got her own show and Sonny got his, but Berman says, "It didn't work."

"Extra" wants to know -- Is this the end of "Jon and Kate Plus 8"?
