’19 Kids & Counting’ News 2015: Duggar Family Is Looking For A New Network After Being Dropped By TLC? [VIDEO]
It looks like the Duggar family is doing whatever they can to stay in the headlines. There's a new report that suggests the 19 Kids & Counting stars are looking for a new network to call home after being axed by TLC.
It took The Learning Channel almost two months to announce that they are taking the show off the air after reports indicated that Josh Duggar sexually molested four of his sisters and a babysitter when he was a teenager back in 2002 and 2003. Even with the backlash, many fans seem to be split on whether or not to continue to support the scandalized family.
According to Naughty But Nice Rob on Monday, the Duggars aren't letting go of their fame and celebrity status in hopes that they'll be able to return to the small screen soon.
A source close to the Arkansas-based reality show family dished, "They are not going away without a fight. They made a lot of money from the show and are not going to just walk away from that."
In an official statement to the press, TLC announced it would not move forward with an initially planned 11th season of the show, featuring the large Duggar clan, and stated the show would no longer appear on the air.
"We spent the past month and a half in thoughtful consideration about what is the best way forward here," Marjorie Kaplan, group president of TLC, Animal Planet and Velocity networks said.
