Jon Gosselin Happy 'Kate Plus 8' Got Canceled

Amy Sussman/WireImage for Discovery Communications(LOS ANGELES) -- Now that TLC has canceled Kate Plus 8, Jon Gosselin says he's "very relieved."

In an interview with RadarOnline, Gosselin, who sired the titular eight children with ex-wife Kate -- and left reality show stardom behind when their Jon & Kate Plus 8 was re-tooled following their divorce -- said, "I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future."

Kate Gosselin, meanwhile, isn't giving up on the spotlight just yet.  She spent the night of TLC's announcement re-tweeting messages from the show's fans and pitching daughter Mady to TV producers.

"Aww that Mady... So well spoken! Wants to do MORE tv!!! Disney anyone? Lol," Kate posted.

"I plan on staying on tv :)," she also tweeted, when asked if she would return to her pre-TV career as a nurse.

MTV Cancels Controversial Teen Drama 'Skins'

John Rogers/Getty Images (NEW YORK) -- MTV has scuttled Skins from its lineup.

The racy teen drama, which drew the ire of the Parents Television Council when it premiered earlier this year for its depiction of underage sex and drug use, has been canceled after just one season, according to Deadline.com.

MTV says of its adaptation of the hit British series, "Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn't connect with a U.S. audience as much as we had hoped."

Following the debut of Skins, which was rated MA for mature content, the PTC asked the chairmen of the U.S. Senate and House Judiciary Committees, as well as the Department of Justice, to investigate the show for child pornography and exploitation.  The show subsequently lost a number of advertisers, including Taco Bell and the Wrigley Company.´╗┐
