Since In Touch reported last week that advertisers were unhappy to learn their spots ran during "Jill & Jessa: Counting On," eight more companies told the magazine their ads were not intended to run during the show and they will not allow them to air in the future.
Wrigley, Ring.com, Combe Inc., Credit Karma, Gazelle.com, RCN Corporation, X Out, and Chattem Inc. join Cici’s Pizza, The UPS Store, Pure Michigan, Whitewave Foods, Choice Hotels, Mattress Firm and Verizon as companies who have pulled support for the show. That's a total of 15.
The Duggars have proved to be quite the headache for TLC. "19 Kids and Counting" was the network's most-watched show before it was canceled following eldest Duggar son Josh's admission he molested underage girls when he was a teen.
The new show, which focuses on sisters Jill and Jessa, was meant to recoup both the viewers and the revenue TLC lost after "19 Kids" was cancelled, but so far, it seems to be more trouble than its worth.
Reps for TLC have yet to respond to request for comment made by The Huffington Post.
