TLC Officially Cancels “19 Kids & Counting”

After two months of limbo, TLC has finally canceled “19 Kids & Counting,” according to the Associated Press, in the wake of the sexual abuse scandal that has plagued the family since late May. It was revealed that Joshua Duggar, 27, the eldest son of the Duggar clan, had sexually abused five young girls, four of whom were his sisters. The details of the entire case are messy and disheartening; it appears the sexual molestation and abuse had occured for over a year, and the Duggar parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, were aware.

TLC is partnering with two child-protection organizations to raise awareness about sexual abuse, and will be airing an hour-long, commercial-free documentary sometime later this summer. [AP]
