If this is your first week learning of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting or its star Josh Duggar, you are not off to a great start. Previously troubled by Honey Boo-Boo, the network has officially pulled the reality series from its lineup, following Duggar’s admission of incestuous molestation near of a decade ago.
