OK, ‘Jon and Kate Plus 8‘ fans, get ready for a massive dose of firsthand news. Kate Gosselin has been booked on next Monday’s Today show, her first interview since last June’s announcement that she and Jon were splitting up.

According to NBC, Gosselin will open up about her family’s life on and off camera.

Will it be enough to boost ratings for that night’s next episodes?

Last week’s two shows, the first new episodes of the TLC series since June, drew 3.9 million and 4.1 million viewers respectively. That’s down from the nearly 10 million viewers who tuned in for the series premiere in May.

On the other hand, the ratings are still nearly double figures from the end of last season.

In the meantime, the tabloid reporter who dallied with Jon Gosselin spoke exclusively with E News. Watch it here.

‘Jon & Kate Plus 8′ airs Mondays on TLC.
