TLC Pulls '19 Kids And Counting'

( 4UMF NEWS ) TLC Pulls '19 Kids And Counting':

“19 Kids and Counting” is down for the count. TLC has yanked all airings of the hit reality show off its schedule.

"Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air," TLC officials told the Daily News Friday. "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."

The network’s decision to take the show off the air comes after a public outcry over Josh Duggar’s admission that he molested several young girls, including possibly his sisters, when he was a teenager.

While the show has not been officially canceled, the fate of the Duggars' hit series remains uncertain.

TLC's website has yet to reflect these alleged changes to its programming, with the show scheduled to air Friday and multiple times next week.

Prior to news that the Duggars' show was taken off the air, the network was criticized for airing a marathon of the show on Thursday, the same day that Josh released a statement in which he confirmed reports that he had sexually abused minors.

Mama June Shannon also told TMZ she was considering suing TLC for canceling her family’s show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” but not taking the same measures with the Duggars’ series.
