Three Reasons Reason Why TLC Has Not Pulled 19 Kids and Counting.. Actually, one JAW DROPPING reason why TLC has not officially cancelled, 19 Kids and Counting!
TLC also known as the exploitation channel and the home of shows such as; Kate Plus Eight, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and 19 Kids and Counting have three reasons for not pulling 19 Kids and Counting.. You would think the network would have done it by now, right? Only because it’s the right thing to do.. right? No-sirey, this is TLC we are talking about. Check out the three reasons why TLC has not officially cancelled 19 Kids and Counting from the network–TLC only pulled the show temporally!
Once again, TLC is using Harvey Levin of TMZ as a mouthpiece/source/puppet as TLC (and other networks) has done before; such as when the Honey Boo Boo Scandal exploded–TLC pretended to be outraged and had Harvey let everyone know they leaked the Honey Boo Boo Scandal, well, this time, TLC wants you to know they are pissed at Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar! Not because of what actually happened with the Josh Duggar scandal! Oh no! No, TLC is upset because Michelle Duggar & Jim Bob Duggar put the whole operation at risk..aka their pocket$ and as the idiot in the video with the mustache puts it as he speaks for TLC through a “source”, sorry, I don’t know his name, anyhow, as he speaks through a “source” he explains, TLC has been there for a long time for the family “how ever many seasons” as he puts it, and has done so much for the poor Duggars and TLC feels betrayed. But this is not why they have not yet formally cancelled 19 Kids and Counting!
When you watch the very short video, you get a sense of, TLC wants you to either think they didn’t know about Josh Duggar molesting his young sisters, Jessa Duggar & Jill Duggar and the babysitter or they did know but not all the details and brush it off of Michelle Duggar has “inappropriate touching”. If I were a betting person, I would bet someone from TLC most likely helped, aided, suggested or even insisted Josh Duggar get his records sealed, that was the subsequent reason why Josh Duggar sued the County of Washington in Arkansas to seal his record because this scandal would mess with TLC’s pot of honey..I mean, money. TLC knew about this, there have been rumors on the internet for some time (see the comment Alice left about the Duggars in 2006 about Josh Duggar) Networks hire people just to surf the net to see what viewers are saying about the show so they know what viewers think–sometimes they will even host chats.
But wait! There’s more. The jaw dropping reason why TLC has not pulled the show? Because of you! Yes, you, the person who dares to be outspoken and outraged. You heard that right. Yep, TLC does not want “anyone” to think the “people” online, you know, you people on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit and comment sections on websites are the reason or control programming. Forget the main advertisers pulled out.. after people demanded the advertisers pull out on count of TLC—ran a marathon the day the scandal broke and just recently took the show off On Demand! Forget the Duggars are hypocrites!
Here’s the thing: We all know TLC knew about the Josh Duggar Scandal because someone called the Oprah Winfrey Show when the Duggars were to appear on the show, at the time, The Oprah Winfrey Show was a part of Discovery–Discovery owns TLC. Someone from Oprah called CPS. Hello, Discovery owns TLC! And yes, TLC has a PR department; in other words. someone to schedule appearances as other networks do when their “talent” goes on talk shows to promote the shows. And then their is “Alice’ the person told anyone who would listen in 2006 on the internet and she was dismissed, see Alice’s comments and replies after video.
Example: Bravo TV network, sent Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile and Teresa Giudice to The View, to bring more publicity to an ongoing family feud to exploit the family for more money-we are not exaggerating here either, Teresa explained in her Bravo TV blog she refused to go on stage with Kathy Wakile (her cousin) and Melissa Gorga (sister in law), when viewers asked why she would even bother going, Teresa stated Bravo TV had arranged for it and she had to go, Teresa did not feel the The View was the right place to make peace or make up with her family.
As far as TLC pretending to be pissed, actually, scratch that, I bet you TLC is pissed--19 Kids & Counting was a money maker! Instead of TLC being pissed because of the actual issue and the Duggars and their hypocrisy, when the “source” says feels “betrayed” is hyperbole, I believe the Duggars did tell TLC what Josh did (after Alice’s comments surfaced) and TLC looked at it as, “Light touching through clothing” as Michelle Duggar described in her interview with Megan Kelly, and this is why TLC is so worried about what you social media warriors say and don’t want you to control what they do when it comes to programming–because they knew. Mark my words.
Watch the video.
update: I hit the option to “fix” video, it may be unavailable for a minutes, sorry!
“Alice” tried to let the internet know in 2006 and 2007, the red box below, the person replying to “Alice” that was the typical response! While others who grew up “the Duggar way” knew it was true!
