’19 Kids and Counting’ Cancelled by TLC
TLC announced Thursday that it has officially canceled 19 Kids and Counting, following revelations about acts of child molestation committed by one of the kids, Josh Duggar, when he was a teenager. Some of Josh's sisters were among his victims.
The network had originally pulled episodes of the show following the revelation, but at taht time they did not say that it would be gone for good.
"TLC and the Duggar family have decided to not move forward with '19 Kids and Counting,'" TLC said in a statement. "The show will no longer appear on the air."
The network said that they will work closely with both groups and with the Duggar family on a one-hour documentary that will include Jill and Jessa Duggar and other survivors and families that have been affected by abuse.
