In public statements that likely did not surprise most people who have been following the situation, the television network TLC, as well as the Duggar family, have announced that “19 Kids And Counting” is no more. The show, which had been running since September 2008, contained 9 seasons that followed the family as they grew in size and maturity. However, more recently it became public knowledge that the oldest son of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, Josh, molested his sisters when he was 16 years old. This has resulted in the show coming to end, despite the Duggar family reassuring their viewers that Josh has had help and is no longer a threat to his family or anyone else.
Fans of the show, or even those curious about the situation, can look forward to an upcoming one-hour Duggar documentary that will touch on the subject.
