Pulling Episodes Of 19 Kids & Counting Didn’t Hurt TLC’s Ratings At All — Could This Mean A Duggar Family Cancellation?!

no title

Maybe Mama June will finally get her way!

Following Josh Duggar‘s molestation scandal and subsequent family interviews all over cable, we were wondering if we were ever going to hear about a 19 Kids and Counting cancellation.

Well, after TLC pulled The Duggars off its schedule on May 22, the network surprisingly didn’t suffer any loss of ratings.

In fact, more people watched The Learning Channel the week after 19 Kids got pulled than they had when the once-hit show was on!

There’s a lot of math that goes into Neilsen Ratings, but basically… 269 million watched TLC the week of the docu-series’ finale, which is pretty impressive.

However, once the show had been off the air for a full seven days, ratings jumped up to 484 million viewers in a single week — not very much incentive to keep TLC from giving The Duggars the Honey Boo Boo treatment!

There’s still no word on whether the show is ever going to get the boot, but we bet Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard are really hoping their spin-off gets picked up!

Would U miss 19 Kids & Counting if it got cancelled over all this controversy??
