According to the New York Times, the Monday night debut of Jon and Kate plus Eight was the most popular primetime show over Memorial Weekend. 10 million tuned in. Thousands commented on the show as it transpired, extending their peep entertainment through Twitter and Facebook conduits. There are now entire blogs devoted to the show – check out Gosselins Don’t Need Our Pity, which should be doing a pretty thriving business these days. I dropped by expecting debate on whether or not the couple are using their helpless kids to enhance their profiles and fortunes, but it’s more like US Weekly – which has featured the couple on the cover of the mag for the LAST FIVE ISSUES. I didn’t manage to catch the show but thanks to all the recaps and blogs, I’m pretty sure I didn’t miss anything. Peep Culture is now indisputably the most prevalent entertainment trend. And the moral implications are finally starting to make people a bit queasy: we are watching with disgusted fascination.
