The fallout from Josh Duggar's sex abuse scandal continues.

After fans called for TLC to cancel the famous Christian family's reality series, the hit network's umbrella company, Discovery Communications, says they have "pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air."

"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," the statement ends.

Despite the big step, TLC has not yet canceled the show entirely.

Sources tell that "no final decision has been made" about the show's fate.

As previously reported, a leaked police report revealed yesterday that the 27-year-old father had fondled at least five minor female members of his household as a young teenager.

Last night, the disgraced reality star apologized for his past behavior.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret," he told People. "I hurt others, including my family and close friends."
