Though the 19 Kids and Counting scandal is arguably a bigger deal and has taken a bit longer to handle than the quick axing of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo when they had their own scandal, it seems as though the Duggars' show will ultimately have the same fate.

After the whirlwind of news regarding the 19 Kids and Counting molestation scandal, it comes as NO surprise that a source close to the network reported that the cancelation of the show is more likely to happen than not.
The source came forward and very bluntly said of the reality show:
"If you're betting, you'd be wise to put money on the show getting cancelled."
Besides the obvious scandal, TLC has a couple other reasons for canceling, the source revealed. The source revealed that the network feels very betrayed by both Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar that they didn't disclose the information of Josh confessing to the molesting of the 5 girls.
Aside from betrayal, the unfortunate other reason is that 19 advertisers have backed out of the show. The sad truth is, TLC is a network and they're in the moneymaking business. If there is no money, they won't do business.
What do you think? Is it finally time for TLC to make a decision to pull the plug on this or should they have already done it days ago?!
