UNREAL: TLC To Bring Back 19 Kids & Counting

It’s apparent that TLC is uninterested in the Duggar family’s vicious crusade of lies against LGBT Americans. The Christian Post celebrates:

Fans of the TLC series “19 Kids and Counting” will be happy to know that the series will be back for another run.

The stars of the series recently suffered through some scandals when it was revealed that Joshua Duggar took part in AshleyMadison.com, a website that serves as an online dating site for married men. With the family known as devout Christians, the news of Joshua’s infidelity led to the show’s cancellation.

Fans are still interested in learning more about the rest of the family and how the scandal had affected them. With that, TLC released several episodes of “Jill & Jessa: Counting On,” which showed the sisters coping with the scandal’s aftermath.

After seeing the success of the short series, it was announced that TLC will be bringing back “19 Kids and Counting” to the small screen. Reports show that a camera crew was recently seen with the Duggar family. They were seen in several locations such as a lumberyard and a thrift store.

We should definitely go all One Million Moms on the show’s advertisers. (Tipped by JMG reader Paul)

  • Rex

    Shouldn’t they be up to 22 kids by now?

    • Joe in PA

      geez, you’d think that expand-a-vag would be shot by now. Ugh.

      • Belthazar

        “expand-a-vag” – LOL!

      • bzrd

        The warranty on the vag-o-matic has expired.

    • Jeffrey

      Sounds like her puss took a hiatus as well. Almost as if there was no point in popping pups out if no one was watching and paying.

      • charemor

        Maybe she is passing her crown on to little Bristle or Brisket or whoever.

      • Valerie .Anderson

        If I were that uterus I would have fallen on the floor and run away by this time.

  • A L Vee

    You’ve got to be shitting me.

  • Joe in PA

    huh, the Christian Post makes no mention of Duggaring sisters? Pity.

    • BobSF_94117

      Indeed. They make it sound like the sisters are suffering from the scandal of his AshleyMadison thingy.

      • TampaDink

        The whole family is “suffering”. Due to slashed income.

        • BobSF_94117

          Actually, that would make for an interesting show.

          • TampaDink

            I question the use of “interesting” being used with any show featuring a single duggaring Duggar. ☺

          • Henri205

            I watched an episode on You Tube after the scandals broke. Very creepy family, utterly vacant intellectually.

          • TampaDink

            It is somewhat sad that they will sending so many ill equipped & barely educated kids out into the world.

          • Librarykid

            To make more ill equipped & barely educated kids to send out into the world.

          • TampaDink

            There has to be a connection between lead poisoning & mind poisoning in the name of make believe.

          • Librarykid

            titillating, perhaps or just obscene?

          • TampaDink

            I’ll go with obscene.

    • Took a couple minutes to update this one–

      • Joe in PA

        good job! 🙂

  • Herald

    This is sick, disgusting, … y’all know what I mean.

    If I watched TV I would never watch this show or TLC. However, since I do not I can totally say that I boycott them forever!

    • B Snow

      I watched some TLC this past week, but after reading this news, I hid it from the list of channels. Probably a good idea, even if today’s update is true, about the show NOT coming back.

  • LonelyLiberal

    REAL: I boycott TLC and take it out of my channel setup, and send a note to both TLC and my cable company telling them why.

    Not that I ever watched it before, but they don’t have to know that shit.

    • Arkansan

      I just locked TLC out of the Tivo channels and last I knew we are still used by Nielsen for ratings data.

      • LonelyLiberal

        I think everybody with a cable box has data sent back to the cable company.

        • Arkansan

          We had to agree to let Tivo access our data for that purpose. Maybe things have changed on how they now gather it.

  • Keith Crist

    Maybe we should see whole the sponsors are and start email them like One Million Moms and get them to pull their ads….

    • Joe knows who I am.

      Perhaps we should ask One Million Moms to start the boycott. I mean, since they’re so wholesome.

  • TampaDink

    Un-fucking-believable! Will the pilot episode of the reboot cover what Josh has been doing with his life.

  • Richard

    Does anyone have the appropriate email or phone number via which I can express my displeasure to the TLC folks?

    • Gustav2
      • AW

        sent an email already. I think we really need to fight this show getting back on air, we need to organize in a way that One Mangy Mom cannot and contact any and all advertisers for the Discovery group of networks and make sure they pull their support.

      • Brian Burleson

        Once again, thank you. (For this and many other things)

  • bambinoitaliano

    Can’t boycott a channel that I do not subscribe. Clearly it knows who are the network customers. Touching Little Children has a market in the US for the perverted christians.

  • BearEyes

    this must be a hell of a cash cow for them.

    • TampaDink

      I believe that it was the only source of income for most, if not every member of their family, including the married kids & their families.

      • Todd20036

        Indeed, while they brag that they didn’t need public assistance, the reality is that all they do is star in their little series, and do nothing else.

        • BearEyes

          I thought Duggar daddy has a series of real estate investments as well?

          • TampaDink

            I believe that you are right….that he once WAS in real estate.

        • TampaDink

          Being home skewld with no marketable skills will not make their lives easier once they fade from their “reality” show based existence….and I have no doubt that it will be yanked off the air again. There have to be more skeletons in their ample closets….and they will find their way towards the doors & daylight.

    • Todd20036

      I guess you could describe Mrs. Duggar as such

      • charemor

        She is definitely a cow.

  • Gery Weißschädel


    • That_Looks_Delicious

      It’s been The Learing Channel for many years now.

      • Gery Weißschädel

        It has, and used to be about some degree of legit education back at it’s inception if memory serves.

        • Todd20036

          Back in the 90s they were all about nature documentaries, and science shows.
          But just as MTV used to be about music videos, TLC decided that it could make more money with “reality show” crap

          • Gery Weißschädel

            The History Channel here in Canada used to be the same. Then it deteriorated so they developed History 2… which is also devolving even as we “speak”. Yesterday, I cancelled my cable service. Anything I want to see, I can easily find online.

          • BearEyes

            not just Canada. H2 in the US as well and devolving.

          • Michael Smith

            Yeah the history channel here promotes pseudoscience and crackpot theories about aliens, Bible Prophecy, and bad reality TV. They stopped doing actual historical programs years ago.

          • Librarykid

            Science is the work of the devil! Nature documentaries are the work of the devil, too because aminals run around with their sex organs exposed and they lick themselves.

      • Todd

        I just took a look at their lineup to see the quality programming they offer. The only thing I learned is that anyone who’s unappealing enough can get a show on the channel. They sure do have a thing for “little people”.

        • Frostbite

          They sure do have a thing for “little exploitable people”. FIFY

      • J Ascher

        I call it The Lemming Channel.

        • Mark

          Touching Little Children as I’ve seen it noted here before.

  • The Sentinel

    “the news of Joshua’s infidelity led to the show’s cancellation” Nice spin, Christian Post!

    • TampaDink

      Well, at least they didn’t blame it all on his slutty baby sisters.

    • Eric in Oakland

      “Nice spin, Christian Post!”

      AKA lying for Jesus.

  • JaniceInToronto

    Can someone post a list of advertisers and perhaps a form letter template?
    I’m way to lame to figure it out… I blame old age and drugs.

    I can’t believe they’d let those fuckers back on the air. Follow the money I guess.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Check recent comment above.

  • Sam_Handwich

    no mention that Josh was using his little sisters as mittens? shocking

    • Mark Lewis

      Battle of the Bands becomes Battle of the Fingerpuppets in their neck of the woods.

    • David L. Caster

      Certainly you didn’t expect a christianist mouthpiece to tell the whole truth did you?

    • Menergy

      Nor of abusing his prostitute(s)

  • Steven Leahy

    All about ratings, Their fan base’s rabid hatred of anything LGBT far outweighs their concern with any moral misdeeds or hypocrisy committed by the Duggar clan.

      I heard Mrs D has a vag with ‘room for a pony. As it were.

      • pickypecker
        • Joe in PA

          I’m here all week folks. 🙂

          But seriously, I didn’t know much about this show until it was off the air…then under pressure of gay-card-removal I started watching. So great.

          Richard! Oh, and I often feel like the neighbor when she has to drink out of a beaker for fear of breaking the Royal Dalton. 🙂

          • pickypecker


          • Joe in PA

            Stealing! 🙂

          • Henri205

            Another good one is ‘One Foot in the Grave’, not sure if it’s ever been on TV here but well worth searching it out. So many great BBC comedies.

          • Joe in PA

            ‘One Foot in the Grave’ sounds like a spin off of ‘The Last of the Summer Wine’. (or something like that).

          • pickypecker

            Also, try one of my all-time favorites if you haven’t….’To The Manor Born.’

          • Versailles

            Anything with Penelope Keith is a must.

          • Steve Teeter

            It was one of our favorites too. Something to pull out when there’s nothing else on you’re interested in and/or you want something familiar and comfortable. Somehow it never got old.

          • TampaZeke

            They’re very different.

          • Librarykid

            or Waiting for God–a fabulous show about a great woman who refuses to suffer fools gladly or otherwise. I hope to achieve her greatness one day. I have been told that I am closer than I know.

          • Joe in PA

            That is actually the one I was thinking about…a friend of mine is a huge fan…he’s seen every episode and they run those things all the time!

          • J Ascher

            The Last of the Summer Wine was a cute, folksy British show. One of the characters played the floor manager in Are You Being Served?

          • TampaZeke

            One Foot in the Grave plays in the English comedy line up on PBS every Saturday night here in the Tampa Bay area.

            Richard Wilson, who plays lead character Victor Meldrew, came out as gay a year or so ago.

      That’s why they’re bring it back.

    Here’s a list of the companies that stopped supporting 19 Kids and Counting before it went off the air the first time:

    1. Ace Hardware: “Ace ads ran on this show as part of an overall ad buy with TLC. We are removing our ads from any future episodes of the show.”

    2. ConAgra Foods: “Based on recent events, we will be removing the show 19 Kids and Counting from our advertising schedule until further notice.”

    3. Party City: “We have decided to no longer advertise on the show.”

    4. BEHR Paint: “[We] have since taken steps to remove our advertising from all future episodes of 19 Kids and Counting.”

    5. Pure Leaf Iced Tea: “Please know that we will no longer be advertising on 19 Kids and Counting.”

    6. Ricola: “[We] are actively taking steps to remove our commercial from this show.”

    7. Firehouse Subs: “We have removed our advertising from the show.”

    8. Pizza Hut: “We are no longer advertising during this program.”

    9. Sherwin-Williams: “We have directed the network to remove our advertising from this show.”

    10. Crayola: “We share your concern for the safety of children and have no plans to air Crayola commercials during future episodes.”

    11. Allstate Insurance: “It came to our attention that our commercials were airing during 19 Kids and Counting. We have pulled our ads from this program.”

    12. King’s Hawaiian: “As a family brand, we understand your feelings. Our advertising has been suspended and our thoughts are with those affected.”

    13. Walgreens: “In the wake of recent news, we are no longer advertising on the 19 Kids and Counting program.”

    14. General Mills: A General Mills spokesperson confirmed that the company has removed 19 Kids and Counting from its current advertising schedule.

    15. Payless ShoeSource: “Our ads ran during this show as part of a larger buy w/ TLC. We are taking steps to have them removed from future episodes.”

    16. Choice Hotels: “We share your concerns and we have decided to remove our advertising from the show.”

    17. Keurig: “Keurig is not currently running any media on The Learning Channel. Additionally, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting.”

    18. H&R Block : “We aren’t currently advertising with TLC. We advertised with the network during tax season, but had no knowledge of this news. We take these matters seriously and will not advertise on the show if it is reinstated.”

    19. CVS: “While our current advertising campaign includes the TLC network, we have not and will not advertise during the 19 Kids and Counting program.”

    21. David’s Bridal: “Should TLC reinstate the show, we will take steps to have our ads removed from future episodes.”


    We should probably start contacting them again to make sure they don’t resume their relationship with the show.

    • StraightGrandmother

      I Love you for this. Instead of all of us scurrying to find out the advertisers, you did all that work for us. In a few days I’ll try and crank into the list. Many thanks.

    • Mark Lewis

      Brb, I have a craving for Pure Leaf Green Tea now.

    • Chris H.

      If memory serves me right, Lowe’s (the home center) never officially pulled their advertising. There was some backlash against them for not pulling it, then TLC “cancelled” the show and that died down.

      • JustDucky

        That’s true of at least a handful of advertisers on ET’s list: they announced they wouldn’t advertise on the show (which quickly became moot) but planned to continue to advertise on the network.

        The Lowe’s thing that I came across while looking for a list was related to a different show. It was called American Muslim (or something like that) and they did pretty much the same thing – they maintained their relationship with the network but not the show, which was cancelled.

        • David Walker

          Always went to Homo Depot first. If what I needed wasn’t there, there was Ace and sometimes a local store.

          • giddypony

            Ace is local! they are franchises but keep most of the money in the community!

    • Frostbite

      Obviously someone is happy to advertise with them or they wouldn’t be bringing the show back. Hmm.. Chik Fil’A and Hobby Lobby come to mind.

      Nice one. 19 Kids in Counselling?

    • Librarykid

      There is a network called UP where I watch Gilmore Girls reruns. They have a show called Bringing Up Bates which is a show about a white family with 19 children. I’m waiting for the show about a black family with 19 children. Let’s see who will sponsor and broadcast that show.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen

        Logo should then have a show, Getting Up with Master Bates.

    Simple proof that christians care more about the label of being christian than actually acting Christ-like. If someone claims to act in the name of Jebus they get a free pass.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    The Duggar’s vicious attacks on the LGBT community alone should have been enough to cancel the show once and for all.

    • Falconlights

      Sadly, there are enough haters out there who don’t care about the LGBT community. Hell, they love what Phil Robertson said about the fact that the community and all who support us should be wiped from the face of the earth.

    ODD, as it seems TLC does not mention the fact that Joshua FINGERED his baby sisters

  • kelven

    They will rue the day they brought this freak show back from the void. And I’m not taking about sane people boycotting all things connected to it. I’m talking about all of the inevitable skeletons that will continue to do their grotesque dance out of the closet with regularity once this spawn of Ungolient are back on the air. I don’t doubt In Touch Magazine has a few things stashed away just for the occasion.

    • Reality.Bites

      Speaking of boycotting, TLC is owned by Discovery, who also own:

      • Michael Abbett

        This is one good reason among many that we don’t have cable in our house. I can’t believe people pay for this.

  • Blake J Butler

    TLC is nothing more than a corporate whore. This family was their cash cow for years, and did no research on them, and their past, and totally put them on national TV for all to see, especially their bigotry.

    This is nothing more than a slap in the face for people who have been sexually abused, as the Duggars try to pass it off as a mistake and not a crime which is exactly what it is. They think they are above the law, use their vile beliefs to dehumanize those that they hate, and cry persecution when they use their faith to attack people, and those attacked return the favor.

    But the drama is not over yet, lets all remember that there still is a lawsuit against josh involving one of his former victims (not the whore) but the one i think used to babysit for them.

    • Brian Burleson

      Preach it! !! TLC’S needs to be reminded of the fact that 19 kids and whatever is bad programing and that they will be held accountable. No excuses. Full stop.

      • One would think there’d be a Zero Tolerance Policy regarding child molesters and their enablers and apologists. …oh, shit never mind – christian fundies and lots of money are involved.

  • Mike C

    “Fans of the TLC series “19 Kids and Counting” will be happy to know that the series will be back for another run.” While those of us who care about the welfare, and preventing the exploitation, of innocent children will be aghast.

  • Jeffrey

    But even without a boycott, what advertiser would ever want to be associated with that mess? Your brand would stink like Josh Duggars fingers for years. Just say no, advertisers.

  • agcons

    I suppose I should not be surprised, but part of me really did think that child molestation would be beyond the pale even for money-grubbing corporate sharks.

    All I can hope for now is that the viewing public turns away, thus forcing the cancellation of this show for good. I expect to be disappointed again.

  • shellback

    Apparently, knowing about, and covering up child molestation is now rewarded. Is it any wonder my television is at the bottom of a landfill?

    • Dale Snyder

      Mine, too! Just a few months ago – 5 years after I got rid of my cable.

  • bkmn

    They really want to be known as the Touching Little Children network.

    • sherman

      That’s the way I will always think of them. Joe should have used “Touching Little Children” as one of his tags.

  • Michael Rush
  • M Jackson

    So they don’t even mention the sister-diddling. What, they had interviewed the Stepford sisters about their pain when their brother wanted to date loose women? Does Tony Perkins write the show’s press releases?
    Every day that this show is on the network’s schedule should be a day that we talk at length about the pedophilia-enabling christian Duggars.

  • Rebecca Gardner

  • friedpikmin

    If the Duggar parents cared about the freakin well-being of their children, they would get the hell out of the media spotlight. But I guess money speaks volumes.

    • Mark

      It’s about the money and only the money….as well as being narcissists.

    • Reality.Bites

      If they cared about their children they wouldn’t have 19 of them.

  • Fyva Prold

    19 kids and finger-counting

  • It wasn’t the fucking infidelity (or that the hooker is now suing him for rape). ITS THAT HE RAPED FIVE LITTLE GIRLS — FOUR OF THEM HIS SISTERS.

  • Brian Burleson

    As I have not scrolled through all of the comments yet so I will ask up front. Does anyone have TLC’s contact information handy? Duggars belong in prison not prime time.

  • Ginger Snap

    TLC where the only thing you learn is Misogyny, Incest, Rape, Homophobia, Bigotry and just plain old hate all for profit. How completely revolting.

  • TexasBoy

    Maybe they should change the name of the show to “Child Abuse Glorified”

  • Mihangel apYrs

    televised acts of duggery?

  • WhoDat

    I love how they spin that it was his Ashley Madison thing that led to the show’s cancellation and not because Josh had been diddling his sisters.

    • zhera

      Technically it was just like that. It was the AM and porn addiction that made them stop sending the show, and then Josh got sent to some kind of rehab thingie.

  • kcken

    Touched by a Duggar, now on the adult channel pay per view.

  • Toasterlad

    Fucking evil.

  • Honey Boo Boo got canceled for much, much less.

    • Robert Conner

      Honey Boo Boo got cancelled because she wasn’t fat enough.

  • TampaZeke

    How many people are offended by TLC’s support of 200 Kids and Counting but continue to watch other TLC offerings? Boycott ALL of TLC’s programming if you want to have a real effect.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      I stopped watching them ages ago. Who are their sponsors? Those are the people who need to be boycotted. The people buying advertising space on this shit circus.

    • Reality.Bites

      I checked their list of programming and the only show of theirs I ever watched was Cake Boss, which I got tired of years ago.

    • Valerie .Anderson

      Nothing on that channel holds the least bit of interest for me.

  • Guess


    – One Millionth of a Mom

  • Luther Kreiger

    I wish I could say this was entirely unexpected, but the almighty dollar is above even incestuous cover-ups and being a well-known hate machine.

  • TheSeer

    We must fight against this.

  • D. J.

    What’s next? Pope PR-I names Jim Bob the first Protestant Cardinal of Arkansas and Josh gets a cushy job as Bishop of Little Rock?

  • TLC needs to have their assets seized as part of a criminal enterprise. This is just disgusting.

  • zhera

    Not one mention of the REAL scandal, the duggaring of little sisters? Oh, that’s right. Jeeziz has forgiven him for that and it’s no longer an issue.

    TLC is utter trash. I have forbidden my mother to watch that channel, and she loves those trashy ‘reality’ shows.

  • John Kusters

    Odd that they seem to completely forget about the child molestation charges… I guess child molestation is okay with Christians as long as the molester claims to be forgiven (then obviously don’t care about the molested).

  • DutchBoy74

    Totally Lost Cause

    Please give them more publicity so the rest of that iceberg can make its way known to the world.

    What skeleton will come out of the closet next?
    Minor with STD? Domestic violence? On air exorcisms? “guest” political figures?

    Huckabee spinoff? Buggering the Duggars with Uncle Huck!

    • William

      There’s bound to be an animal torturer in the bunch.

  • Brian Moore

    I’m actually interested in seeing how this shitstorm plays out. I won’t be watching the actual show, but I am dying to see people’s reactions.

  • Duane Dimitrov

    Interesting that these people are back.

    Yet, the Honey Boo Boo people are still on the outs.


    • Honey Boo Boo’s family wasn’t xtian enough for the TLC execs.

      • Valerie .Anderson

        I feel sorry for Honey Boo Boo and Toddlers in Tiaras – even the Dugger kids, the younger ones especially. The “lifestyle” chosen by the parents is an evil brew that just set what Josh Dugger did into motion…repression, guilting and such things stunt emotional growth. It’s abuse and it’s reprehensible how these people get away with exploiting these children.

        • I feel sorry for all children who are captives living a life in a reality tv show. On Kate +8, those poor kids were shown using their potty chairs!

  • William

    This news makes me want to get cable, just so I can cancel it.

  • anne marie in philly

    just what we need – the h8ers cult and white jeebus TOGETHER AGAIN!

    somebody pass me a barf bag…

    • LonelyLiberal

      Here, dear. Unfortunately, I already used it. Twice.

      • anne marie in philly

        thank you, dear (ralphhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)

  • Robert Conner

    Statistically speaking, there’s got to be at least one gay kid in the bunch and lot’s more opportunities for little boys to stick fingers where they don’t belong. So much more to learn on The Learning Channel! After all, why wouldn’t they bring back the Duggars when they’ve got shows about 600 pound people, sexual fetishes, and a roster of other trailer trash television generally?

  • KnownDonorDad

    They make me think of the intro to Idiocracy.


  • Dan

    I’m disappointed that TLC feels the need to give this freak show a forum – I’m not making any direct judgments about the kids (in fact, I feel sorry for them having this done to them), but the whole “thing” is just nuts. That said, I won’t be boycotting TLC, since, as there’s nothing really worth watching on there anymore, I haven’t watched it in years.

  • Stubenville

    It’s very easy to tell the advertisers that you’re disappointed in them for supporting this vile and amoral show.

    • Friday

      If only I could boycott cable any more.

  • Why does the article by the Christian Post completely gloss over the fact that Josh Duggar molested his sisters? That was a bigger scandal than the whole Ashley Madison stuff he did as an adult.

    • Because incest is all to common in xtian families.

      • RJ Bone

        Depending on the cult, they’re encouraged to mate with others within. “Do not be unequally yolked.” In my old one it was scandalous to marry “those people” on the outside because your spouse could tempt you to follow Satan. No kidding.

    • Friday

      Cause Christians lie.

  • David Gervais

    I suggest that in future we call the show ’19 Kids and Diddling’ or ’19 Kids and Duggering’. Any suggestions as to which is better?

  • pedophiliac, inbreeding sanctimonious freaks galore.

  • NZArtist

    On the bright side, they’ll be back in front of the cameras for the *next* big scandal. Pity the kids though.

  • TheSpinMonkey

    Thankful I do not have TLC

  • Boy Elvis

    Oh fuck you, TLC. Fuck you all the livelong day.

  • Wanda

    I thought tlc was the learning channel. The only thing I see can be learned on the channel is that they exploit people for money and awful family values.

  • roadtripboy

    As I’ve said before the problem is bigger The Duggars. The real problem here is at TLC’s parent company, Discovery Communications. As viewers we have to demand that Discovery clean up it’s act. We need to hold Discovery responsible for their programming choices. Write to Discovery’s top execs today.

  • dcurlee

    Once I actually see it in the lineup. Done with TLC

    • Arkansan

      Why wait? It’s not like they have anything else worth watching.

  • Joseph Miceli

    I’m sorry, I just can’t support any company that would advertise on the show of such immoral people!

  • Jeffrey Mckinney

    Um…notice how they only elude to the pedephilia Josh committed on his sisters “coping with the aftermath”? This whole family is disgusting. TLC channel is playing with fire.

    • rabbit_ears

      Lets hope tlc and all its shows burn down with it.

  • skeptical_inquirer

    I don’t see how they can make any money off this. They’re radioactive to most advertisers.

    I really think the fact enough Christians wanted this fucking show back that TLC brought it back should be rubbed in their faces again and again whenever they bitchily go “da childwen, da childwen” when talking about women having rights over their own bodies and LGBT people. Screw you fundies for funding a family that handwaved multiple counts of child abuse and violence against sex partners, multiple counts of adultery and told a whole bunch of hypocritical lies while trying to make it legal to persecute people just trying to take a piss!

  • Max_1

    18 Kids, One Pedophile & Counting

  • Max_1

    Is are children learning channel…

    • Friday

      Since when, really, they used to be a documentary channel till sometime in the mid nineties all they had to do was show (free) videotape of surgeons cutting people open, and then somehow that audience parlayed into Fundie reality shows.

  • Friday

    Touching Little Children for Total Liar Christians Channel. I’d demand it off my cable service if I had any.

  • Claude Jacques Bonhomme
  • rabbit_ears

    Thats OK. TLC isn’t a real channel, its like local cable access. There is nothing to learn there.

  • RJ Bone

    ….. well. GG TLC, GG. You played your viewership like a violin.

    Now. There had better be a fuckton of schadenfreude to be had in the return episode, because it had better be the entire family squirming like unearthed worms, followed by a bunch of mea culpa and a heaping dose of real humility for their COLOSSAL and multiple fuckups.

    Who am I kidding? It’ll be them with barely a mention of the scandal with the parents taking no responsibility for their actions or how they raised that Duggar-fondling cesspot of theirs. Followed by a lot of Jesus forgives me so I’m not responsible..

      You know, bitch, if you didn’t try to make your post stand out, I might not notice it and flag it. You’ve been all over the place today; do you think JMG readers are foolish enough to fall for your crap?

      • Valerie .Anderson

        It’s a bot.

        • Baltimatt

          They’re the worst kind!

  • 3-Star

    It won’t last a full season due to very, very low ratings. I’m guessing maybe 3 episodes before it gets yanked off the air?

  • Tim Voth

    All I can think about when watching this show is all the sex that goes on ,copious amounts of vagina pounding and juice squirting.
