TLC Cancels Duggar Show After Josh Duggar’s Arrest

The New York Post reports:

The Duggars are done. TLC, the network that aired the various iterations of “19 Kids and Counting” and the follow-up show “Counting On,” has dropped the Duggar family following Josh’s arrest on child porn charges.

“TLC will not be producing additional seasons of ‘Counting On,’ ” the network said in a statement to The Post. “TLC feels it is important to give the Duggar family the opportunity to address their situation privately.”

TLC faced mounting pressure to cancel the show as outraged fans started a Change.org petition calling for the end of all Duggar-related programming from the network.

Law & Crime reports:

During a brutal bond hearing in May, a Homeland Security Investigations agent described some of the horrific material allegedly found on the computer of former reality TV star and conservative activist Josh Duggar, who is currently awaiting trial for allegedly possessing and receiving child pornography.

The agent testified that one video titled “Daisy’s Destruction,” showing the rape of an 18-month old girl, ranked among the “Top five worst of the worst” that he ever had to examine.
