Good Times

“Quintuplet Surprise” or “Too Many Babies?”

164 Comments 10 March 2010

Hey everybody!  I hope you all liked the show last Thursday night!  The response has been pretty fantastic from friends and supporters and the folks at Discovery Health are pretty hopped up on it as well…good stuff!  I just got the ratings today and our little show is the highest rated show on DH over the last month with somewhere between 600,00-800,000 viewers.  As you might imagine, we are blown away by these results!

The big test comes next week when TLC airs the show for the first time.  They have two dates set:  Tuesday, the 16th at 9:00 pm Central and Wednesday, the 17th at 12:00 am (midnight) Central.  If we have a solid rating on those two airings, our chances of moving to a series look really, really good.  So if you missed it the first time or would like to keep up with the Joneses in High-Def, tune in Tuesday night!

One little twist that we are unsure of at the moment is the name of the show.  TLC has it listed right now as “Quintuplet Surprise,” but we were told today that this might be a mistake and the name may stay as “Too Many Babies?”  I’ll update as soon as I know for sure, but look for both on your TV guides.

The TV show wasn’t the only excitement in our life this last week, however.  Britton and Brooklyn both decided it was time to give this walking thing a real go…they are so close!!  Check out the video below – I caught both of them in the act in one video clip!  We also had a crazy busy weekend – Nana, Bapa, and Aunt Summer (one of my two adopted sisters) came for a visit, one of our volunteers brought her new baby girl, Lila Grace, by for a visit, we met with the Pisner’s, parents of the ninth set of quints ever born in the US (1983), and somehow I managed to write a paper for my negotiations class…whew!!

Sorry to be so short, but it’s time to spend some veg time on the couch with my lady…good night, everyone!

    The Jones family is so sweet and those babies are the cutest little things ever (I love it when the 5 little ones sit in their little seats for their milk in the morning – so precious!) They love each other and adore their 6 children. You know, (Janice and Katie) some people work hard for a living and earn good money. People make choices. Don’t get mad because someone else’s choices benefitted them financially. They aren’t complaining at all. In fact, it seems that no matter what, they will be content as long as they are together. They are just concerned – who wouldn’t be? They’re worried about falling behind in bills if the $$$ doesn’t come in – so they are trying to downsize. Also – Ethan went back to school as soon as he found out that they were expecting 5. How many people have the incentive to do that? I think God is blessing their faith and hard work. Don’t hate on this lovely family because you made different choices.

    Hey there, can’t wait to see your show airing in the UK in January!

    I’m just wondering, does baby Jack have epilepsy (hence the helmut), as my son has epilepsy, too.

    I hope that’s ok to ask…

    Hope you all had a lovely Christmas-

    Hi there

    I have been watching your show from Scotland as it has just been released in the UK and I absolutely love it! My husband and I have 16 month old twin boys, Rory and Callan and we are always fascinated with anything relating to the effects of multiple births and every day life. You are such a loving family and it is really refreshing to see you just getting on with things especially in the current economic climate. I really hope you do get your second season as I think it will be a big hit!

    Best wishes to you all.

    Tracy, David, Rory & Callan x
