After more than six years on the air, "19 Kids and Counting" was cancelled in 2015 amidst allegations that Josh Duggar, the family's oldest son, had sexually abused underage girls. When reports first surfaced, the network pulled pending episodes from broadcast. After Josh Duggar admitted to his actions publicly, TLC cancelled the series.

June Shannon was the matriarch of the TLC series "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," a spin-off from the popular TLC show "Toddlers and Tiaras." After two years of high ratings, allegations surfaced that Shannon was romantically involved with a convicted sex offender. In response to the controversy, TLC cancelled the show in August of 2014.

"Trading Spaces," a home-renovation show in which two sets of neighbors redecorated each other's homes, aired from 2000 to 2009 and consistently earned high ratings. Rumors of trouble first surfaced when TLC fired the original host and began revamping the format of the show. About a year later, the network announced the show's cancellation and aired the final episode in 2009.
