Talk about a show that has great legs. Last night, Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014, a wedding drew millions of viewers to TLC’s long-running reality series “19 Kids & Counting.” The show features the Duggar family, and the wedding was between Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard.

According to a TLC press release, Jill and Derick “walked down the aisle Tuesday night (10/28/14) to record ratings, driving TLC to the #1 cable network of the night among all key women demos. The record breaking episode delivered 4.4 million P2+ viewers and averaged a 3.5 HH rating and a 3.0 W25-54 and W18-49 rating

“The much anticipated two-hour wedding special was the #1 cable program in prime on Tuesday night among HH, P2+ and all key women demos (W25-54, W18-49, W18-34), beating out FX’s ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ It was the highest rated and most watched episode ever for ’19 Kids & Counting’ and TLC’s highest viewed telecast in four years.”

  1. What a sad comment on American women. The Duggars should be shunned, not celebrated. The carbon footprint this family exhibits is horrendous. No family should be allowed to consume some so many resources and of course their breeding will continue through generations, making it even more aggregious.

  2. What a terribly hateful response. You must have a lot of bitterness inside you.

  3. Does anyone remember the first showing of the Duggars which was a one off specials. That huge house they had was two kit houses and they were 3 years into the project with very little to show for it. It wasn’t until the show came around that the focus was to get them out of a 2 bedroom apartment and get the home complete. The Duggar’s are only successful because they are an oddity. If they didn’t have the show, they were be still working on building that house 10 years later.

  4. No one is required to watch! I know nothing about the Duggars and could care less. But those that do care, want to watch it, so why belittle those people for their choice? What makes the current television and entertainment business so great is that everyone can find something that they want to watch. That should be encouraged not degraded.

  5. Nice that America is interested in a wholesome show. Much better than Honey boo boo at the other end of the spectrum. Given the choice I’d go duggar any day.
