There have been a pile of Duggar rumors in the last few weeks, rumors of Jill Duggar Dillard possible pregnancy in Ziki-riddled Central America, of Anna Duggar’s possible pregnancy, of Anna and Josh’s return to one another, the desperation of Jim Bob and Michelle to shoot down all those divorce rumors and that TLC and the Duggars faked the recent episode of their new show featuring Jinger buying and flipping a car. Whew, busy few weeks in Duggar news.
But the one bit of news speculation that does seem like it might be true is the one claiming that The Learning Channel has the Duggar’s new television show ‘Counting On’ on the bubble for cancellation. Turns out that while the ratings are healthy for this show that the advertisers have abandoned the show, leaving it with almost no corporate or commercial sponsors. It’s being reported that the show is filling slots usually containing paid advertisements with ads for their own network’s television shows.
The network made the cynical decision to return this family to the airwaves after losing an estimated 19 million dollars in advertising revenue when they pulled the original Duggar show in the wake of allegations of Josh Duggar molesting minor children.
It’s not just the usual crop of tabloids like the Inquistr saying that the future of the show is in trouble, media outlets like Fox News and the Huffington Post are also reporting on the lack of advertisers. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
And if you’re interested in the show but don’t want to actually increase the Nielsen ratings for viewership then be sure to read the extremely funny and snarky recaps of the episodes at the Facebook group “Duggar Family News: It’s Not All Pickles and Hairspray”
