Maybe TLC is hoping if they order more episodes, they can get Jesse James back on and Gosselin up their ratings.
It couldn't hurt, right? (Actually, it can! Just wait!)
Sources are confiring that TLC has ordered eight more episodes of the Kat Von D reality series LA Ink. This new batch of shows will act as the second half of her fourth season and will continue to follow Kat's work as a tatoo artist, sans Corey Miller, who was the last founding member of her High Voltage shop, and her work as an author.
But something you actually won't see that much of, at the request of Kat, is more about her personal relationship with Sandra Bullock's ex. We're told his screen time has been "dramatically pared back," just like it was in the first half of the season.
So much for making him the new Jon Gosselin!
