Finally,?after?years?of reading about the?infamous?Jon, Kate, their sextuplets and a set of twins who were making global headlines with their reality show, TopTV came to the party and aired the series. And?boy, is it worth the hype! Jon and Kate’s ­marriage fell apart spectacularly on TV, leaving Kate Plus 8.

Along with other reruns on the channel, such as Miami Heat and Alley McBeal, it’s the perfect ­winter warmer.
