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.
