The latest shoe has dropped for “19 Kids and Counting,” and this is probably one you saw coming given all of the other backlash that we have seen to this point.
After being pulled already by its own network in TLC, we have now learned that Hulu has also removed all episodes of the show from their website. If you try to visit the show’s former page on the site, you are directed with what is nothing more than a 404 error. This move seems to be a pretty clear reaction to some comments from users expressing their anger that it was still included on the website, which in turn follows revelations that Josh Duggar molested several minors when he was a teenager.
TLC has not formally made a decision themselves on the future of the show, but the last we heard, the biggest thing that they were considering was a possible spin-off featuring Jessa and Jill Duggar along with their new families. We still don’t understand just how that would be possible without addressing at least some of the controversy, but it is at least something that they are considering for now.
We’ll stand behind the same opinion that we have shared over the past several weeks, and that is that the most-likely scenario for this show is one that leads to its cancellation. There doesn’t seem to be any other obvious way to distance the network or the family from all of the controversy; otherwise, it will just remain a hanging chad.
