on

Reality TV has dominated the airwaves over the years. There’s something about watching other people go through absurd situations that hook us. While many shows have grand ratings, some behind the scene situations overshadowed everything. We take a look at five reality shows that were dropped due to controversy.

19 Kids And Counting

For seven seasons, 19 Kids and Counting was one of TLC’s highest-rated reality series. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled by the network following several allegations towards Josh Duggar. While the show was done, TLC gave the remaining family members their own series with the spin-off Counting On.

Who Wants To Marry A Multi-Millionaire?

Released in 2000, Who Wants To Marry A Multi-Millionaire? was dripping in controversy. While it was a ratings success, the show was wrecked by one line. Multi-millionaire, Rick Rockwell, wasn’t actually a millionaire at all. In fact, Rick Rockwell wasn’t even his real name. With the lies pouring like honey, Fox canceled future seasons of the show.

Armed And Famous

When celebrities train to be police, some horrid things will go down. CBS’ Armed and Famous found itself in the middle of a lawsuit by Lyndsay Clements. She stated the televised search in her apartment was completely illegal. This news delayed a handful of episodes from airing before they were put on the shelf indefinitely.

All My Babies’ Mamas

All My Babies’ Mamas is the only series on this list that was canceled before it aired. The show was set to follow rapper Shawty Lo and his life as a father to 11 kids by 10 women. As expected, many media groups shunned Oxygen for promoting this show. Following a major petition, the series was pulled from the network.

Kid Nation

CBS saw massive success with the hit reality show Survivor. They decided to bring us a kid version of the series with Kid Nation. With the premise of the series, the network was slammed with negative press. Many people considered this a form a child abuse, and various companies pulled ads from the show. The series was canceled after one season.
