TLC says the return of new episodes of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" delivered a robust audience on Monday night. But it was nothing like the crowd of 10.6 million viewers who tuned in on June 22 when the Gosselins revealed their decision to separate.

For Monday's back-to-back half-hours, "Jon & Kate" drew 4 million and 4.2 million viewers, TLC said. After its six-week hiatus, the reality series has resumed its focus on documenting everyday activities with the estranged couple's eight kids -- 5-year-old sextuplets and 8-year-old twins.
