Jon and Kate Gosselin (GAHS'-lihn) are over, but "Jon & Kate Plus 8" continues. TLC president Eileen O'Neill says the popular reality show, which has been on hiatus since the Gosselins announced their split in June, returns Monday with new episodes that document the Gosselins "separately parenting" their eight children.

O'Neill says the iconic sofa from which the couple addressed the camera is gone and replaced by "separate interview chairs." TLC will "continue to capture this family's journey in a respective and sensitive way," she says.

O'Neill made her comments at a meeting of the Television Critics Association.
