With JK8 ratings in the dumper, TLC cuts some dead weight — Jon Gosselin.

TLC confirmed on Tuesday that Jon & Kate Plus 8 will be renamed Kate Plus Eight, beginning Nov. 2.

It will reportedly continue to focus on the kids’ lives but with a deeper focus on Kate’s role as a single mother. 

"Given the recent changes in the family dynamics, it only makes sense for us to refresh and recalibrate the program to keep pace with the family," TLC president Eileen O’Neill said. "The family has evolved and we are attempting to evolve with it; we feel that Kate’s journey really resonates with our viewers."

Reportedly, Jon will stay on the show – for now – but his role will be significantly reduced.

Think "cameo" appearance.

Hawaiian Eye for the Ladies Jon better step up his quest for a solo show quick!

Maybe as a  semi-private eye?
