No word yet on whether TLC will officially cancel 19 Kids and Counting after it was revealed that the oldest of those 19 kids was once accused of child molestation, but TMZ reports that the network has pulled all the upcoming airings of the reality show off the air. The gossip site's sources say the network's ultimate decision is still not clear, but that this latest move doesn't look good. General Mills has also removed the show from its advertising schedule and "blacklisted" it, a rep for the company says. Josh Duggar has publicly admitted to acting "inexcusably" when he was a young teen. (More 19 Kids and Counting stories.)
