TVLine Items: Hulu Drops Duggars, Urban Cowboy Series and More

19 Kids and Counting Cancelled

Another media channel is severing ties with the Duggars.

Hulu has pulled 19 Kids and Counting from its site following eldest son Josh Duggar’s admission that, as a teenager, he sexually molested underage girls, TVLine has confirmed.

TLC dropped all episodes of the reality program, which follows Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar and their ever-expanding family, from its schedule last Friday in light of the controversy.

    Sad to hear the news about Jessica Collins leaving Y&R. Don’t know what’s going to happen to her character Avery who’s caught between her relationship with Dylan (Steve Burton) and Joe (Scott Elrod).

    • Erin B says:

      I wonder if they are going to recast the role. It seems like her leaving would be abrupt given her current storyline. Unless she quickly decides she is done with Dylan & rides off into the sunset with Joe. I just read yesterday though that there was a storyline coming up where she fights for Dylan. Maybe she doesn’t get very far.
