Duggar Fans Upset That Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar Are On ‘Counting On’

This week on a new episode of “Counting On” Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar showed up. They aren’t always on the show, and Josh Duggar isn’t on there at all. IB Times shared the news that some viewers are really upset that Jim Bob and Michelle were on the show.

A lot of people were happy to see Jim Bob and Michelle, but others were furious. Here are a couple of comments that fans made.

“Keep the parents off the show! They are the reason that Josh is in the shape that he is now. It was told that if the show came back on the parents would not be on there.”

“Get those disgusting parents off the show at least Josh is no longer on the show. [TLC] should be ashamed of itself. I will no longer watch this show.”

Personally, I don’t see the problem with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar being on the show. I am glad to see them back again. I wouldn’t want to see Josh on there, and I feel like he is the one that they need to avoid bringing back at all. I am really glad that the show “Counting On” focuses on the children instead of the parents, but I don’t see an issue with them being there from time to time.

What do you think about Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar being on “Counting On”? Are you okay with them being on the show? Sound off in the comments section below on your thoughts, and don’t miss the new episodes of “Counting On” when they air on Tuesdays on TLC.

    I’m ok with them being on there some. Just not all the time. The Bible says to forgive and that’s what we have to do.

      I. Do not think he should be on there at all. Are even Madge’s me mad telling the children what they can or can not do look what he let happened to them and now he still has the say if they can or can not get married or date why did he look out for them when jet came to there bother he don’t even need to de around the kids in the house now I hate him. As far as Michelle I really like her a lot but she don’t need to have any more kids she new what was going on with the children and looked the other way

    Michelle and Jim Bob are the parents and grandparents of this girls and their families, it is only natural for them to pay their children visits. And to those who put the blame of the actions of one of their children on them is WRONG, just look at the other children and how beautiful, inside and out they are, love you Michelle and Jim Bob, God Bless you and ALL your family.

    I think they should be on the show> They have raised a family of beautiful God-fearing children. God loves even the black sheep and wants them to return to the fold.

    I love seeing them on the show. Let’s be real that is there parents it would not be right if we didn’t see them from time to time. Bring Josh back to. Let him tall about his screw ups and what he is doing to fix it. I would like to know what repercussions happened to the stupid _______ ________ _______ _______ Who released his and the girls names. They were all minors and this is why minors names are kept out of the news. For there protection. If she was not punished that is WRONG. Basic we are telling her and everyone else or is ok to violate minors right for privacy

    I love them all! The BIBLE speaks about the woman who committed adultery,’Let him that is without sin cast the 1st stone’. Josh has done no more than the rest of us because no 1 sin is bigger than the other! We have all sinned and come short. The BIBLE also says we sin daily but are to ask for forgiveness. Bring back ALL THE DUGGARS PLEASE!!

    I don’t see a problem with them appearing on the show from time to time. We should forgive and forget. People learn from their mistakes. Some people need to grow up. I loved the past shows and I love the new shows. Team Dugger 100%

    It’s ok for them to be on there now and again as long as jimbob does’nt take I’ve like he usually does. Michelle has to do as she is told who does he think he is its like a cult

    I say let them on there. I love them. You can’t control what your kids do, NO matter what some of these people think.

    Of course they are on the show its centered around Jinger and her courtship, engagement and wedding, so can we say duh!!! I don’t mind them being on the show, I don’t feel the the whole family should be punished for the decisions that Josh made.The girls are in no way the blame. What about the people/person whole released the information about these minor children? Let make the victims, VICTIMS all over again (you should be ashamed of yourself) what if it was you, your sister’s or your family? These girls have to deal with the aftermath of this day after day. You forgive and try your best to have a normal life but you don’t forget…. I pray that this person never has to walk a road like these girls have but some how life can seem to catch back up with you.(karma baby) so glad the show back and hope that the rest of the family will be back on, including Anna and the kids but I do feel Josh SHOULD NOT BE!!!

    It is normal and natural for the girl’s family to be on the show, some people just have to complain about something . I shake my head. !!!!!!

    I love seeing them on there, it’s fine to show an appearance every once in a awhile seeing they wouldn’t be the people they are with out them. I understand if josh isn’t on but come on now it’s time to get over it they are there parents-grandparents!

    So all of the finger pointers out there blaming Michelle and Jim Bob. If your kids go awry someday then we can all blame you?

    I DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE Parents on the show. Without the parents there would be know show.
    I would like to see how the rest of the kids are doing as well. I truly don’t believe the parents are at fault for Josh’s behavior its a illness that needs to be dealt with. So all the haters kept it to yourself. You never know how your own kids may turn out.

    I am glad that they are back and the other children as well (Josh not included). I like watching Jill and Jessa but it is better with all the children. I love watching Jana and Joye. They are two very independent women and I think it is very cool watching them do their projects. I definitely get the sense that they are the leaders around the home.

    know I don’t want Josh on the show he was the one who messed up and the show taken off to begin with. Bring him back to soon would make him think all is forgiving. I don’t want to see him at all he has a lot of growing up to do. The parents sometimes kids all the time.

    It doesn’t bother me if they are in every so often. They’re boring though, so I’d like to keep the focus on the kids.
    I have to say I completely disagree with the comment made that Josh is the way he is because of his parents. That’s a horrendous thing to say. Josh made his own bed and chose his own path. It’s nobody’s fault but his own.
    Come on … I cranky don’t blame my mistakes on other people.

    I’m not thrilled about Jim Bib and Michelle being on the show but at least he has curbed his constant references to sex and pawing at his wife it was over the top and sickening. Enough already, we get it you can’t get enough sex.

    The girls and their siblings and offspring are enough, it’s lovely having the opportunity to share a little piece of their lives and that of the babies.

    The sponsors need to chill, especially in light of the absolute garbage that they sponsor, I.e Kardashians, Rob and Chyna,
    Sister Wives just to name a few.

    I don’t mind them being on there…it would be a little hard not to include them to some point when Jinger and Jeremy are planning a wedding…how could you leave the parents out all together…I do think that Jim Bob is being a little critical and pushy with Jeremy…I don’t recall him being like that with Derrick and Ben

    Leave them alone and let them be on the show.He who is without Sin let them cast the first stone. No one can . They made the show before and they can help now this is their life and family. Why do we dig at the Duggars so much. When the Willis have third bad problems and nothing is on the news about. Do you think this is about Christins I do. They are good for the show.

    Those family members who knew about Josh’s sins and allowed him to be featured on the show anyway do not belong on the show, They were part of a conspiracy that resulted in an lot of pain and heartache,not only to those he molested but to his poor ex wife, Anna who Instead, let the parents. along with Josh’s salaries be given to those who were injured by their actions, or lack of them, and if this is something they can all agree on.let them have at it.

    I think everyone should leave the Duggar family along, that is their mom and dad and they are apart of their lives.
