19 Kids and Counting, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and 5 More TV Shows Brought Down by Scandal.

When a tabloid magazine published molestation allegations against Josh Duggar, the reality-show star turned conservative activist, he did not have many defenders. The Duggar family is making headlines this week because of a recently unearthed Arkansas police report which states that Josh was interviewed back in 2006 in response to an accusation that he had sexually abused underage girls in 2002 and 2003. Josh addressed the controversy yesterday saying, “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret.

The presidential hopeful, 59, took to Facebook on Friday, May 22, to defendand his 19 Kids and Counting costars/family members as the reality star faces repercussions from a child molestation scandal. The family has now been thrust into further public spotlight with news that the oldest Duggar son, Josh, 27, admitted to having molested five girls when he was a teenager. Good people make mistakes and do regrettable and even disgusting things.” “The reason that the law protects disclosure of many actions on the part of a minor is that the society has traditionally understood something that today’s blood-thirsty media does not understand — that being a minor means that one’s judgement is not mature,” continued Huckabee.

No purpose whatsoever is served by those who are now trying to discredit Josh or his family by sensationalizing the story.” “They are no more perfect a family than any family, but their Christian witness is not marred in our eyes because following Christ is not a declaration of our perfection, but of HIS perfection,” he said. TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: Just last year, amid reports that Mama June (June Shannon) was dating a convicted child molester, the once popular program was cancelled. They’re a really, really big family (and counting): The Duggars are a family from Arkansas consisting of parents Jim Bob, 49, and Michelle Duggar, 48, and their 19 kids. All of the kids have names that start with J: Josh (27), Jana (25), John-David (25), Jill (24), Jessa (22), Jinger (21), Joseph (20), Josiah (18), Joy-Anna (17), Jedidiah (16), Jeremiah (16), Jason (15), James (13), Justin (12), Jackson (10), Johannah (9), Jennifer (7), Jordyn-Grace (6) and Josie (5).

Jim Bob, the Duggar patriarch, waited over a year after Josh confessed to molesting the young girls before contacting the police, according to a 2006 police report obtained by InTouch Weekly. If that wasn’t not enough reality show fodder, Josh has three kids with wife Anna Renee Keller Duggar: Mackynzie (5), Michael (3), Marcus (1) — and a baby due in July. The police were unable to conclude their investigation before the three-year statute of limitations was up, so they did not pursue the charges further.

The Duggars’ reality show (then 17 Kids and Counting) began in September 2008 and is in its 10th season, with a cumulative 227 episodes, not including specials. However, the family became famous before the show aired when they were featured on several TLC and Discovery Health episodes about pregnancy and childbirth. The former The Voice star was currently battling a court case where he pleaded no contest to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a female years prior. Ratings-wise, the show is a huge hit for TLC — the two-hour special featuring Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s wedding raked in 4.4 million viewers and posted a 3.5 household rating, making it the most-watched telecast for the channel in four years, according to The Wrap.

Aside from the daily antics of wrangling a humongous, decade-spanning horde of children, a crucial part of the show centers around the family’s faith. According to their website, the Duggars have been educated from materials that include the Institute of Basic Life Principles and Accelerated Christian Education. According to an essay by Michelle Duggar published at TLC, the family does not swim in public, wear shorts, tank tops, or for women, skirts that fall above the knee. She wrote, “In general we don’t do a lot of swimming events where swimming suits are worn because it’s just too hard for the guys to try to keep their eyes averted in those situations.” In 2004, Michelle Duggar was named Arkansas Young Mother of the Year. That’s why tabloids are quick with headlines like, “Pregnant Jill Duggar Got Married 90 Days Ago, But Is 93 Days Along: Here’s Why That Doesn’t Mean She Had Premaritial Sex.” (Thanks, E!) They’re a seemingly wholesome celebrity family ripe for both admiration and scrutiny.

Josh was a major figure at the Family Research Council in Washington, a leading conservative group fighting legislation about issues such as abortion and gay marriage.
