Is TLC a Scam, Rip Off, or Fraud? WARN OTHER CONSUMERS By Sharing

Duggars dug their own hole; time to quit digging

I am a survivor of sexual childhood abuse. I feel that TLC’s decision to televise a special on this problem and their decision to INCLUDE the Duggars shows very poor taste.

In our house, we will NEVER watch anything that includes interviews with these people. They seem to be able to maintain this dichotomy [division into two mutually exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups: a dichotomy between thoughts, feelings and action.]

On one hand, they portray themselves as “do-gooders” who are truthful charitable people who seem to feel they have the right to judge and convert those of us who do not follow their exclusive religious beliefs.

On the other hand, they have covered up multiple sexual abuse of children by their oldest son, and only confessed these did happen when they were FORCED to do so.

I feel this is an affront to many of us.

bring back the little couple, women of NYC, get rid of the fat shows and buy this dress

My Strange Addiction – Plastic Surgery

Um – How about instead of JUST exploiting these individuals, who are obviously suffering from mental health issues, HOW about instead of just documenting their problems (ie. making a profit), why do you not offer a solution, a remedy, anything?

I enjoy some TLC programs but do agree your standards are getting lower. Where are programs like “The Little Couple” or “The 7 Little Johnstons?” Another annoying problem you have is night after night showing several episodes of just one show! Time to hire some creative people perhaps?

Join the discussionI agree !, get rid of 600lbs and paranormal shows, where are the little Johnsons, our little family, the little couple ? there are to many crime shows on tv, these shows are so good

I lowered my standards and watched some of the Gypsy Sisters..what a waste of time. The language, fighting,etc. If that’s what TLC is going to give us, I’m giving up on TLC. The shows are getting worse and worse. I did watch Outdaughtered, the poor couple really needs help. If I lived nearby I’d want to go help them.

Whitney Thore’s Big Fat Fabulous Life is an outrage. Learning channel? Not hardly. Miss Thore is the straw that has broken our PTA’s back. This woman’s standard of life, irresponsible banter about obesity and mean spirited bullying is just the end of the road for anyone to has dealt with the sorrow of watching an obese loved one cope with their addiction. I thought the first season was going to be a true and unique learning experience for the many the struggle with obesity. I should have know better. With a vote of 36 to one (the one being a… Read more »
Maybe you should spend your time educating yourself on proper grammer and spelling rather than trying to put down people who are exercising and trying to love themselves because it is obvious you do not. You sound ignorant and clearly did not pass second grade. I am so sorry you have a loved one who is heavier than Whitney who cannot walk on their own and needs a walker who does not run a dance class and clearly cannot function which is not Whitney’s situation. Stop projecting and mind your business. Not only are you a bully but I am… Read more »

You do know this is a two month old comment…right? Your personal insults and nasty disposition indicates that you are not dealing with a full deck, nor are you a responsible adult. Find more up to date comments to spew your venom upon, rather than trolling for opportunities to reveal your puppy love for Miss Thore. Get a grip on yourself. Your mouth is advertising your wide-open ignorance and contempt for any opinion, other than your own.

I don’t know how to break the news to you, but your own ignorance and hateful disposition is shining through. All the name calling and insults reveals that you have no respect for other people’s opinion and have way too much ego. Get a grip.

Join the discussionI agree, and what happen to Myrtle Manor ?, TLC’s programs are awful !, you was my favorite channel, not now

SHAME ON TLC!!! I did watch the Duggar show from the onset when they were these innocent people that shopped at Goodwill, lived in a tiny house, and seemed to be a struggling nonjudgmental family. As they were given more and more air time – the truth be told. They consider themselves a ministry, which is interesting since none of them are educated and have a very small clue about the world that they live in. However, they did learn that Dad raked in 3.5 million by using America while pretending to be struggling and hiding his sons predatory history.… Read more »

I LOOKED UP TOBY WILLIS AND HIS FATHER IS A PREACHER AND THEY MAY NOT FOLLOW BILL GOTHARD,BUY THEY PROMOTE QUIVERFULL RELIGION! THEY ARE NOT AS EXTREME AS THE DUGGARS ,BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT WILL COME OUT ONCE THE SHOW GETS STARTED! THEY ARE A VERY NORMAL TALENTED FAMILY,SO WE WILL SEE ,THEIR SHOW STARTS IN MAY!

I cannot honestly understand how this network TLC is Still on the air… the executives obviously have zero morals, and equal amounts of ‘so called Ethics’. there have been Multiple scandal$ involving s3xual abu$e of children alone from the cast members, and staff they find. Is money really that important??? How can these people keep hiring such low life? And with these Duggars… why are they being allowed to profit from what they did? Why is this family making money, instead of being investigated for what they have done? Why is TLC enabling them to fool the public into donating… Read more »

I will not watch TLC ever again ! Why do they put the phony scam shows on,.Duggars,Long Island medium,Pawn Star,the list goes on ! It’s about time we contact the sponsor’s.TLC,the public aren’t morons.

If any of you have chosen to never watch TLC Ever again please click the thumbs up button here on the link below, feel free to share with your friends who also may be disgusted with this family, and network. You’re invited to  post and comment if you wish… I have just started this page recently  , but I will be updating regularly! Once the numbers are high enough, I will certainly be talking to media outlets, and the boss of TLC themselves! ;) have a great day!  There is strength in numbers, and social media has more power than some… Read more »

A petition should be started to ban ALL THE DUGGAR clan from being on any TV show. TLC should be closed down if they continue with this family on TV as they are basically saying its ok cover up molestation which is sending a very bad message to everyone.

Dear TLC I thought the new show Jill and Jessa, counting on would revolve around just the two married older daughters-the ones who told America that it was OK to minimize sexual abuse by a family member, that sexual abuse is just simply an adolescent boys curiosity. While its frustrating you let these gals who have NO business being on TV back on the air, it is more upsetting that these specials will include the entire rest of the family except for josh….and guess what? one of the specials(as far as I can tell from preview clips) IS all about… Read more »
TLC MAKES ME SICK! TO PUT JILL AND JESSA ON TV. THEY DOWN PLAYED BEING MOLESTED! THEY BOTH HAVE SENT A MESSAGE TO YOUNG GIRLS THAT IF THEY ARE MOLESTED IT IS THEIR FAULT. AND THAT PARENT’S MAY NOT PROTECT THEM LIKE THEY SHOULD. THEY ALSO MADE IT WHERE MANY WOMEN THAT GET RAPED MAY NOT TURN IT INTO THE POLICE AS THEY MAY FEEL IT WILL BE COVERED UP AND THEY WILL BE ON TRIAL NOT THE MOLESTER!!!

I will NEVER watch ANYTHING with the Duggar family attached to it. I do not even feel safe allowing this channel to be unblocked – by my own choice, for any child to watch. I have enough to protect my family from witjout THIS MESS. Also, I was originally engaged to watch Whitney acknowledge what damage her own personal choices have caused her health. After only whatching previews of this season, she has increased her weight dramatically. This is SO UNHEALTHY. Arent you guys the same network who shows individuals almost DYING from obesity? And showing the YEARS AND MONEY… Read more »

Could you please extend or add more episodes of It’s All Relative with Leah Remini? This show is enjoyable, positive, family oriented and HILARIOUS!!! I love them all!! Please. This is a nice show that I can watch with my family. There are very few these days. It is great to see a famous family act normal…no b***s showing, no drugs, no alcohol. Just normal living. Thanks.

JILL AND JESSA DON’T EVEN DESERVE THEIR OWN SHOW BECAUSE AS ADULTS, THEY STILL KEPT THE SECRET!!! THEY SHOULD HAVE REPORTED JOSH DUGGAR, THEIR OWN BROTHER!!! BUT NO, DADDY DUGGAR MADE SURE THEY WOULDN’T DO THAT!!!!!

I could not agree more

Laurie, Go check on the TLC facebook page. They are going to do a few shows that revolve around Jill and Jessa. Is there any way we can get a petition to sign to keep the Duggars off the air?????? I am deeply troubled by TLC’s choice to do this. Perhaps JB forced them to finish out their contract after the media storm “blew over”? And I’m pretty sure JB has complete control over his grown daughters even though the pre arranged “transfer of authority” has already taken place. He still controls the purse strings of that entire family,well at… Read more »
FOR ANY ONE THAT WANT’S TO SIGN A PETITION HERE ARE SOME. 2 OF THESE 1 IS JOSH’S POLICE REPORT, THE 2ND ONE IS JILL AND HUSBAND’S FAKE MINISTRIES TO STEAL MONEY FROM FAN’S.

I changed my name if you’re wondering. I don’t think there is much we can do??? WE would have to take TLC to court OR we just don’t give TLC the ratings by NOT watching it. That is what I am going to do is NOT watch it. I don’t see why we couldn’t do a petition! I do NOT AGREE with giving Jill and cry-baby Jessa their own shows! I recently even saw a photo of one of the Bates girls down in wherever land Jill is doing her ‘missionary’ work. Gee I wonder who pays for that??? Grrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!… Read more »
I whant to see The Duggars Back on the air this fall best show you had on TLC. If You can have Sister Wifes still on TLC and they are sinning with more then one wife. Then the Duggars should be back on too I have not watch your channel since you took them of the air and will not tell you put them back on TLC and Discovery Channel on Monday night please. And have a family T-shirt and mug sold too. Lost of people would buy them. There are so many fans out there that want to see the… Read more »

How many teeth do u have? 2? Do u m********e to this garbage?

You r obviously delusional.

I am SO HAPPY TLC took your favorite show OFF THE AIR BECAUSE TLC/THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL – WHOEVER IT WAS WHO MADE THIS DECISION FINALLY MADE A CORRECT DECISION – and the NAME of that show is 19 Kids and Counting, NOT The Duggars!!! Thought I should clarify that! There are ‘sins’ (as you are REFERRING TO, SUCH AS THIS ONE WHICH IS MOLESTATION OF GIRLS – 5 OF THEM TO BE EXACT, THAT JOSH DUGGAR IS GUILTY OF!!! HOW CAN YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THIS??? HE PUT HIS HANDS ALL OVER THE BODIES OF HIS OWN SISTERS!!! THAT IS JUST… Read more »

It washidden for WAY more than 2 yrs. Check the facts. Oprah uncovered it eight years earlier. Thats why they werentt on her show.

Hollywood knows, they just assume we are dumb a*s sheep.

TLC is now doing a documentary to raise awareness of child abuse. TLC…really? After having so many issues with it in their programming, they NOW want to redeem themselves? Rubbish! To add insult to injury, articles have stated the Duggars will be involved in some capacity…you know, the sisters who dismissed the molestation as being, “a little bit too curious.” To include ANY Duggar in the issue of child abuse indicates another moral failure on TLC’s part, and shows that TLC is unwilling to let a ratings money maker (19 Kids) go. TLC continues to make horrible moral decisions to… Read more »

IN MAY THE WILLIS CLAN WILL BE BACK ON ,THEY ARE A NORMAL FAMILY AND SING AND DANCE,I LOVE WATCHING THEM ,THE PROBLEM I HAVE WITH THEM IS THEY ARE A QUIVERFULL RELIGION OR AT LEAST TOBY WILLIS FATHER IS A QUIVERFULL PREACHER! HOPE THEY ARE NOT HIDING ANY SECRETS! THEY DON’T SEEM TO FOLLOW BILL GOTHARD LIKE THE DUGGARS!

Now there big secret is out, the Dad molested a child 10 years ago somewhere beyween the age of 3 and 13, the show has been cancelled and he is going to jail…by the way he fled his state to not get caught and he got caught anyways…look it up, it’s horrific.

Fed-Up – I went to high school with Toby’s father and mother in a suburb of Chicago. Just a few months we had our 50th reunion. Scott and Janet are NOT a part of the Quiverful cult. Trust me. They are merely pious people who experienced a terrible tragedy some 20 years ago, and got through that horror with their deeply held faith. They were, and still are, a stunning couple whose strength everyone should admire. I repeat…they are not a part of Quiverful.

I SO agree.

TLC has been going down the toilet for quite some time, at least they got rid of 19 kids and counting. All they have to do now is get rid of the rest of their lineup, minus two or three shows. I remember when the learning channel had educational programs of value not this mindless drivel for the brain dead.

I Am Jazz is a show about a young girl who thinks she is trans gender, not appropriate for TV, Funny the timing on this, just as Bruce Jenner turned trans gender, we do not need to see or here about these creeps, they can do what they want in there lives, but keep it to them selves, do not expose us to this garbage, Some of the programs TLC, shows are not any different than the freak shows that use to be at carnivals. My mother was one of 20 children, my mom was one of the youngest, and… Read more »

I’AM JAZZ IS A SHOW ABOUT A GIRL THAT WAS BORN IN A BOYS BODY,MEANING SHE IS A GIRL IN EVER PART OF HER BODY EXCEPT SHE FORMED IN THE MOMS WOMB WITH A P***S! SHE HAS A FEMALE BRAIN,SHE THINK AND ACTS LIKE A GIRL ,BECAUSE SHE WAS MEANT TO BE A GIRL ,SHE IS A GIRL TRAPPED IN A BOYS BODY! LEARN ABOUT HOW IT HAPPENS BEFORE YOU JUDGE HER!

I am getting SO angered about the people that are begging TLC to Keep 19 Kids And Counting on the air! The REAL issue is the victims/survivors! I have a Masters in Social Work, and have worked with children that have been molested. Yes I said MOLESTED because THAT is what Josh did to them! If you do the math, he was 18 when he told his parents about what he did! The young ladies were around 14 to 15. Let’s be real and call it what it is. This is NOT a boy that was being “curious”! This is… Read more »

The facts are out there. He got caught and ADMITTED his actions at 14. In fact the abuse went on for years with four different sisters at different ages for several years BEFORE anything was even REPORTED to authorities.

Read the Oprah documentation. BTW, SHE DID NOTHING.

So much for survivors sticking together.

I would bet he molested his sisters more than 5 times.

I SO agree with you!! He definitely molested MORE than 4 times! Why? The FIRST times he MOLESTED he only felt guilty that he had done so. He confessed. He did it AGAIN!!! AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN, SO MUCH SO THAT THERE WAS A PERIOD OF 2 “YEARS” THAT HE CONTINUALLY MOLESTED!!! THE GIRLS DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS NOT RIGHT BECAUSE THEY WERE NEVER NEVER NEVER TAUGHT ABOUT “GOOD TOUCH AND BAD TOUCH” BECAUSE HOME SCHOOLING IS ASSUMING YOU “ARE” TEACHING THIS TO YOUR KIDS! WHO KNOWS HOW MANY TIMES HE “BAD TOUCHED” THEM ALL THE WHILE THEY LIKED IT!… Read more »
there is NO true reality in MOLESTATION even from a family member, this is a Silent killer amongst the one’s we are taught to love, and have respect,how can this be, no child asks to be touched in any way. if you continue to allow programming what message are sending to our children, who we are trying to protect from the evilness, molestation brings hurt, shame, mixed feelings, emotions, and above all anger, we are victims silently, TLC, i must say you will get this wrong if you continue filming this family, what happened to the christian beliefs, what does… Read more »
Regarding 19 kids and counting, I’m hoping that the network doesn’t bend to the culture of hate and deviance. Judging by the messages, there has been an agenda to attack this family for years. What they have experienced as a family is a tragedy but my goodness, they are not alone. I am not condoning the behavior but they have forgiven each other and moved on. It’s time for the haters to move on as well. Please keep this program. Jessa and Jill have shown themselves to be outstanding role models for young women and not victims. Lena Dunham gets… Read more »

Oh my god …. These girls are anything but “role models” for today’s young girls! Role models are confident young women who make their “own” decisions and speak their own mind. These girls say what has been drilled into their heads from birth. They are not allowed to make decisions – the men in their lives dictate everything to them!

I PUT JESSA AND JILL AS A NEGATIVE INFLUENCE FOR ROLE MODELS FOR GIRLS TODAY BECAUSE THEY SHOULD HAVE REPORTED JOSH ON THEIR OWN THE SECOND THEY FOUND OUT WHAT HE DID TO THEM WAS WRONG “DESPITE” WHAT THEIR PARENTS TOLD THEM TO DO OR TOLD THEM “NOT” TO DO DO OR NOT TO DO. JIM BOB DUGGAR AND MICHELLE DUGGAR BOTH KNEW WHAT THEIR SON, JOSH DUGGAR, DID WAS ILLEGAL! THAT’S WHY ALL HUSH-HUSH! THEY WANT THE MONEY THEIR SHOW BROUGHT IN!!! JESSA AND JILL ARE TEACHING GIRLS TO BE QUIET AND ASHAMED ABOUT BEING MOLESTED AND TO TELL… Read more »
TLC, I cannot understand why you would stop airing the 19 Kids And Counting Program. Yes, it is admittedly true that Josh Duggar made wrong choices and hurt others in doing so. It saddens me that this has taken place in this family and also for the victims of this incident. I don’t think the Duggar Family tried to “hide” anything. How many people go around telling everyone about their past failures, criminal records etc.? At least what took place is in the past and the Duggars tried to take the correct path of correction for both their son and… Read more »
