Things aren't looking too good for The Duggars.
After Josh Duggar's molestation admission, it's been all downhill for the preachy reality TV family. TLC pulled 19 Kids and Counting from their schedule, but is thinking about kicking Josh off the show to keep it on air for ratings!
That plan might not unfold after all though, because advertisers are pulling out their ads from the show!

It's been reported that Payless ShoeSource and Choice Hotels have both announced that they are severing their relationship with all future episodes of the series!
After customers voiced complaints to Payless, they wasted no time yanking their ads from the now controversial reality show. A rep had this to say:
"Our ads ran during this show as part of a larger buy w/ TLC. We are taking steps to have them removed from future episodes."
Sounds like a smart idea!
But not all advertisers are jumping ship just yet. Walgreens claimed they were waiting to monitor the situation before they cut any ties with the program.
With no advertisers, there's no show — so we'll see what happens next!
