Cast of the TV shows 19 Kids and Counting

While a good on-screen drama contributes to the popularity of the show, some off-screen dramas actually axe the show itself.

Recently, ABC’s hit sitcom, Roseanne, was canceled following Roseanne Barr’s racist comments. But it’s not the only one.

Here is a list of 5 popular TV shows that were cancelled due to controversy 

1. 19 Kids and Counting

The show centered around the daily lives of the utterly-conservative Duggar family, comprising of Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar and their 19 kids.

However, it came to a sudden halt after the oldest Duggar brother, Josh, was caught in molestation claims.

2. Buckwild

Buckwild was utterly similar to ‘Jersey Shore’ except that it took place in West Virginia and cast members were different. 

The show was canceled immediately after a cast member was found dead in a vehicle due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

3. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

The former ‘Toddlers and Tiaras’ star, Alana Thompson was loved by the fans so much that she landed a spin-off along with her family.

But, when news surfaced that June Shannon, was allegedly linked to a man, who was imprisoned for molesting one of her daughters, the show was canceled.

4. The Good Life

CeeLo Green’s comedy series, The Good Life, featured his life in the city doing crazy things with his old friends.

However, TBS canceled the show following Green’s controversial tweets about his views towards rape.

5. Roseanne reboot

The revival of 1988 classic sitcom, Roseanne, premiered in March 2018 which received high ratings and a renewal for the 11th season.

However, following Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet referencing a former White House adviser, ABC canceled the fan-favorite show.
