"I swore I wouldn't watch, but I turned it on for just a few minutes--enough to see all the kids sprawled out on the boat, lying down, vomiting in buckets, having their puke thrown in the water, and saying "Mommy, I don't want to be in this boat, I want to get off," to which she replied, Nope, too late."
"I watched the fishing segment only because I was curious about the company that provided this trip, and because of the life jacket issue."
"I clicked on for just a second in the midst of watching my Cincinnati Reds beat the the Arizona Diamondbacks, just to see if the kids were wearing life jackets. They weren't."
"I haven't watched this mess since the divorce announcement, but I did this time, I had to see who it was sailing this ship of fools."
It's people who say they won't watch and want the show to end. Yet they still tune in. Even though some may claim that their 1 viewership won't affect ratings, just remember that there are probably thousands thinking the same thing.
If people really want the free the kids, they should just stop watching. Kate can have her OWN TV SHOW. I have no problems with that. But I won't be tuning in to any of the Kate "Plus 8" episodes.
1 minutes or 20 minutes, why bother?
From reading all the comments, they say they're disgusted and feel sorry for the kids. We already know that this was going to happen without even watching the show. People were already blogging about the previews.
Hopefully the ratings for this week will also drop to another low. But I'm guessing TLC is going to have a little ratings bump for this week.
Again, if you like the show, then by all means, watch it. But if you really want the show to end, try not to tune-in.
