Update: TLC has issued a statement confirming that the show has been pulled: “TLC has issued an official statement about the show’s status: “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.”
TLC has pulled all episodes of its hit series 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule in the wake of sexual abuse allegations about eldest Duggar son Josh Duggar. Last night, the cable channel aired a previously scheduled 19 Kids & Counting marathon, for which it was widely criticized on social media. TLC has now yanked all episodes of the show from its schedule. The network has quickly replaced the multiple episodes that aired daily on the channel with other programming. An hour ago, the channel’s website listed the show as still airing from May 27 onwards. Now all mentions of it have been scrubbed from its schedule. Numerous episodes, including the unfortunately titled “Duggars in Cuffs” are still streaming on the website.
