The Octomom documentary attracted millions of viewers on Wednesday night. According to FOX, 4.2 million viewers tuned in to the documentary versus the 3 million that watched Monday’s episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8. Talk about explosive ratings for a documentary!

Various media magazines and newspapers had some interesting opinions about the two hour documentary. Entertainment Weekly calls it a “repulsively grim two hours of TV” while the New York Times said it “failed to produce a second’s worth of contrarian evidence that Nadya Suleman isn’t a self-obsessed, publicity-driven lunatic.” Yikes.

The New York Daily News calls the documentary, “an oddly fascinating look into the life of a woman who alternates between totally dysfunctional and easily sympathetic.”

Even Suleman says that she “screwed up my life, I screwed up my kids’ lives. I have to pretend like I don’t regret it. I can’t regret it now cause I love them, they’re here. But what was I thinking?”.

She may not have been thinking real clearly when she already had many children before she received in-vitro to make it an even fourteen children. But, now the responsibilities loom her. Not only is she having to deal with the pressure of being a single parent of that many children, but she also has a life in the public eye, where government agencies and the like will be keeping their eyes focused intently on her and her large family.

Did you watch the Octomom documentary? And will you be watching her reality show?
