Ratings: Jon & Kate Deliver a Big Plus!

Jon & Kate Plus 8

See what just a little bit of ink will get you? The Season 5 premiere of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 delivered 9.8 million total viewers — the cabler's largest audience ever, and its best draw since an April 2003 Trading Spaces special. It's also more than double what the increasingly dysfunctional parents scored with their previous, less tabloidy premiere.

Leading out of Jon & Kate, TLC's Cake Boss only held on to 3.2 million viewers for its premiere. (Hey, maybe people prefer sour over sweet?)

Other recent ratings notes:

Harper's Island on Saturday night scored 3.89 mil, besting America's Most Wanted and a Southland repeat, but not ABC's NBA finals coverage.

• On Monday, The Bachelorette made a date with 6 mil, down markedly from last week's premiere. ABC's Here Come the Newlyweds in turn debuted to 4.98 mil, placing third far behind a CSI: Miami rerun (7.76 mil) and a fresh Medium (7.75 mi).
