While still way,way  off the record-breaking ratings of  Jon & Kate Plus 8’s season premiere in May that averaged 9.8 million, la familia Gosselin, or at least Kate Gosselin, have rebounded from ratings lows.  The viewer numbers have  doubled in recent weeks from the lows where the Gosselins were averaging less than 2 million viewers.

Monday night’s special, Kate: Her Story averaged nearly 3.8 million viewers and a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating.

In head-to-head competition at 9pm on Monday night, Kate: Her Story dominated The CW’s Gossip Girl in most  ratings categories and as ratings supplier extraordinaire “Travis Yanan” noted,  Kate and TLC hit The CW’s Gossip Girl where it hurts: with CW’s target demo of Women 18-34.

Maybe Gossip Girl should be looking to stunt-cast Jon Gosselin:

Show Date Viewers (millions) HH Rating/Share 18-49 Rating/Share W18-34 Rating/Share
