Breaking News

"19 Kids and Counting" just got the ax ... TMZ has confirmed.

The show has been on the chopping block since the revelations about Josh Duggar ... that he molested 5 children, including 4 sisters.

TMZ has reported TLC wanted to wait to make a formal announcement in case the winds shifted, but they never did. The public outcry was strong, and the show has been a goner for 2 months.

So now 2 TLC shows have been 86'd after revelations that minor children in the casts have been molested. The second, obviously, is "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."
