Josh Duggar Molestation Fallout: TLC Pulls All Episodes of 19 Kids And Counting; Releases Statement

Duggar Family TLC

TLC announced this afternoon that it’s pulling all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting in the wake of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal.  Mama June is probably a little sad she has to put that lawsuit on hold…possibly. 

TLC isn’t exactly saying that they’re canceling the show, just that they’re pulling the episodes off the air. “Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids And Counting currently from the air. We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time.”  They didn’t give any further info about the status of the show. 

It makes me wonder if the network is gauging the fallout to see if it will blow over?  The show pulls in some of the highest TLC ratings, whereas Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was declining so it probably wasn’t a huge loss for them to cancel it at the time June’s scandal broke.  It seems like the Duggars are a different ballgame…
