19 Kids and Counting might get cancelled, now that advertisers have pulled away from the TLC show in the wake of the Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal. During an interview on Friday night with The Kelly File’s Megyn Kelly, Jessa Duggar Seewald talked about what will happen to the Duggar family if their reality show is cancelled.
“We’re not a TV family,” Jessa said. “We’re a family that just happened to be on TV.”
Jessa Duggar added that if 19 Kids and Counting is, in fact, cancelled, that “life goes on.”
TLC is reportedly considering a 19 Kids and Counting spinoff if they cancel the original Duggar family TV show. 2 Brides and Their Grooms would star Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald, along with their husbands Derick Dillard and Ben Seewald. It would eliminate Josh Duggar from the picture completely and significantly cut down on air time for both Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar–the 19 Kids and Counting parents.

Jill Duggar shared her thoughts on the what-ifs that presently surround 19 Kids and Counting.
“We always just had the mindset of, this show is just a window of opportunity that God has allowed our family to be on television and to share with other people our lives,” she said.
“We do love our film crew,” Jill Duggar Dillard added. “They’re like family to us. We’ll see. We’ll see what life brings. We don’t know at this point.”

Do you admire the attitude both Jill and Jessa Duggar–who are both on the list of Josh Duggar’s victims–have about their family’s reality show? It certainly sounds like they are far more interested in their family than they are in remaining on TV.
Do you think TLC will wind up pulling the 19 Kids and Counting plug, and if so, will advertisers consider supporting 2 Brides and Their Husbands instead?
