More than 19 days and counting. That's how long it's been (at press time) since TLC has publicly commented on the child molestation controversy that has enveloped the network and the Duggar family, the stars of its signature reality show, 19 Kids and Counting.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
Here we go again: for the second time in seven months, TLC is embroiled in a child molestation scandal involving the stars of one of its most popular reality shows.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is going off the air for an appalling reason.

Here, gentle reader, is the thing: you're going to argue with your family over the holidays. You know you are. For many of you, the debates began over your Christmas dinner last night. Here at Adweek, we feel your pain and want to help you prepare not merely to have these arguments, but to utterly crush your loved ones.
