Hulu pulls "19 Kids and Counting" after allegations against Josh Duggar

Hulu has pulled "19 Kids and Counting" from its lineup, following reports of sexual misconduct allegations against one of the stars, Josh Duggar, stemming from when he was a teenager.

Although the streaming-video service didn't confirm removal of the TLC series, episodes weren't found Thursday on the Hulu site, where they had been available as recently as Wednesday.

The show's banishment follows TLC yanking the series from its program schedule last week. "Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of '19 Kids and Counting' currently from the air," the network said in a statement. "We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time."

A number of advertisers, including Walgreens and Choice Hotels, have also walked away from the series.

Duggar, now 27 and married with three children of his own, is the oldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children. The family is featured in the show, whose 10th season concluded May 19.

TLC hasn't addressed whether its popular show will return for a new season.
