    1. Lets get some new shows. Tired of the same old thing too.

  2. Why would they show wedding prep? That is OLD! And we've already seen the wedding, at least once! Not interested.

  4. Apart from Jinger and Jeremy's new house everything else has already been covered or done to death on social media, same old same old.

    1. This isn't the Kardashians...not everyone's lives are filled with crazy drama. It's nice to see normal people doing normal things.

      Delete
    2. I think the poster is referring to the fact that the Counting On season plans to cover content that is not new.

      Delete
    3. Anon @ 6:26 Not looking for crazy drama (and I avoid the Kardashians like the plague) but watching people do what we all do isn't interesting. The Duggars were an oddity because of their size, but now its just courtships, weddings and babies with the main characters changed up each season, and with trips shopping or house renovation inbetween, its become very boring, sorry just my opinion.

    4. "Normal" people do more in their lives than court, engage, marry and give birth!

  5. Until they have some current material I won't be watching. I simply can't do Joe and Kendra's wedding again.

    1. I can't watch Joe and Kendra's wedding in any aspect (planning, actual wedding) again, either!!!

    2. The giggling, the emotional father, the rappelling... I can't take that rerun again either.

  6. Joy says they were alone on their honeymoon. How can you be alone when you have a camera crew tagging along? And they share all their itinate honeymoon kissing on camera. What a shame!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They don't seem to value privacy, even on their honeymoon although all couples in this family love to constantly kiss for the camera. It could be awkward for them to finally be alone.

      Delete
    2. Perhaps she's so used to being filmed by a camera crew she doesn't think of the crew as being "other people".

      Delete
    3. what a big shock that must be going from having all dates chaperoned to being completely alone. They are probably lost.
      Just seems very strange to me. I also thought it was odd when Joseph couldn't touch his fiancé for even a moment.

      Delete
    4. Anon @ 7:17 No matter who is around family or a film crew it is still 'other people'. Alone means just the two of you, not you two, a sound man, a camera man, a director and whoever else is in the crew!

  7. Who's that girl next to Jessa?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To her right, I think is a friend of hers and to her far left may be the family friend whose last name is something like-Fortuno(sp?)???

      Delete
    2. Laura, and one of the Hartonos?

      Delete
    3. The girl inbetween Jessa and Jana is longtime family friend Laura De Masie. She was thought to be the little kids tutor for a while, although it was never confirmed, and she went on the recent trip to Australia.

      Delete
    4. The girl next to jessa, I've seen her in another photo on facebook with the duggars, when they were in new zealand recently.

      Delete
    5. Laura De Masie said she was staying with the Duggars to help with wedding planning. She may have also been a homeschool teacher for the younger children. She left after the last wedding.

  8. The promo videos are actually way more exciting then the actual show.

    1. Then there's the answer. Release nothing but promo videos during a season. Ratings will soar.

      Delete
    2. They usually cover more material. Lol! I watch the promo videos and call it a season!

      Delete
    3. I'm glad some people here have a sense of humor and can laugh when things get funny. And let's face it, sometimes Duggar things can't help but get funny.

      Delete
  9. These couples are never alone together before they get married? Whatever works for them, but I find it hard to believe that they really get to know each other on a personal level if someone else is always listening. If you are true to your convictions, you should be able to abstain from going too far without having others watch your every move.

  10. And we are officially going backwards again. Such fun.

  11. I can't wait! But..we've already seen Joe & Kendra's wedding. In fact, I've watched it many times over On Demand. But everything else should be new

    ReplyDelete
  12. I enjoy watching the Duggars and am looking forward to the new season. Why, though, would TLC show Joseph's wedding footage a SECOND time?!? TLC needs to get a grip and stop showing footage over & over. There's a TON of footage they could get with so much going on in these families.

  14. Who is the dark haired girl standing beside John-David

    Replies
    1. I believe that the dark-haired girl, is a friend of the family, named Jennifer. Jana, and John-David, met Jennifer, and her brother Jonathan, when they went on a mission trip, to Asia. Now, Jennifer, and Jonathan, spend a lot of time, with the whole Duggar family.

  15. I’m excited to see Jinger’s new house and I’d also like to see how Joy and Austin interact as a married couple. I think Kendra is precious and can’t wait to see more of her. I Love how Joe just can’t hild back his tears when she walks down the isle, that’s my favorite part! I can’t wait to see more of Jessa and her sweet babies also!!

  16. Lily & Ellie you guys forgot to mention Josiah's courtship to Lauren. But other then that I cant wait for the new season. Time 9:23PM

    1. This Season will show only until early September 2017, Josiah started a oficial courtship in January 2018. I dont think it will be featured in this season, maybe next one

  17. Ok it's all old news, I think it might be time for the Duggars to find a new line of work besides reality tv. It doesn't have to be a generation line of work like this and to watch them now raise their babies in front of cameras and in the public eye is just wrong.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Why is it wrong? They seem to enjoy their work and they live well.

    2. I understand what you are saying, but if they moved in another direction it would be a lot better. Wouldn't it be nice if they pulled their money together and started a business and filmed the ups and downs of working together as business owners. What comes to mind is something like the Cake Boss show etc. They could open up something like a Magnolia Lane type store, or a huge thrift type store, the skies the limit. It could be a testimony of how a large Christian family works together and also is a blessing to the community. Jim Bob has a real good business sense and knowledge of how to start businesses so he could lend his wisdom to get them started. I think they would be awesome at being business owners and an encouragement to others to do it too. This way they get the cameras out of their private homes and instead have them in the business instead. A show like that would be interesting and fun to watch, plus they get to maintain privacy for them and their children at home. Maybe they could consider something like this.

    3. You often hear Hollywood celebrities don't want their children in front of the cameras. They want to protect them. These children are overly exposed. What a price this family had paid for going on TV. How could the tradeoff ever be worth the money?

      Delete
  18. It would be kind of hard for them to film the future! I love watching these sweet kids and appreciate their commitment to purity! So refreshing in this immoral day. God Bless them!

  21. We've already seen the wedding, was hoping for new material.

    Replies
    1. They have always shown weddings twice, Jill's, Jessa's, Jinger's, Joy's and now Joe's. I was hoping as well that TLC would NOT repeat Joe's wedding because we all complained so much last season about how much we hate repeats. But TLC isn't listening I guess

      Delete
  22. So I guess Jill and Derick are off the show now? What a shame. Who are those two girls? More courtship news?!?

    1. Don't you find it kind of strange that a young newly married couple would take a film crew on their Honeymoon? Who does that and why would that precious private time be shared with the public?

      Delete
    2. Then they should just be showing what we haven't seen. Why rehash?

      Delete
    3. I find it VERY strange to have your honeymoon filmed for TV! I don't care how badly you need the money. Some things are not worth giving up, at any price. Privacy being one of them. They will never get that special early marriage time back, and they don't even realize what they missed by selling it. Pretty sad, when your life has come down to that, fleeting money and fame over everything else of real and lasting value.

      Delete
    4. They aren't with them their honeymoon, and having it filmed is what pays for them to be able to take a honeymoon trip to Switzerland.

  24. Not the wedding again....we have already seen it. Give something new and go with a NEW season. Old stuff is not TV worthy .

    1. I agree - too many recaps - way too many.

  25. I watched the TLC promo that popped up with the article. I was taken aback by Joe refusing to place his hand on Kendras waist for a photograph. There were quite a few people there including Kendras sister, what did he think would happen? If you feel you cannot trust yourself to do that for a few seconds then you are not mature enough to be getting married imo. The rules this young couple had were beyond ridiculous, even for the duggars!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I thought hand-on-waist was standard for the perfectly acceptable side hug?

      Delete
    2. I’m pretty sure Joe knew both was going to “happen” (to or between himself and Kendra) if he placed his hand on her waist for a photo. But we all know they would have been torn apart by the general public for breaking the “Duggar standards”. I don’t blame him a bit. He was wisely avoiding a situation which would have just opened up a bunch of criticism—and it makes me sad that he can’t do that without being criticized.

      Delete
    3. The standards of this couple, and the family in general, don’t hurt anyone. We’d all be a lot better off if more people would adopt the same standards! Even though I didn’t have the same “rules” when I was dating, I respect the Duggars!

      Delete
    4. I can't get the video to play. Did he really do that, refuse to put his hand on her waist? Yet it was perfectly OK for his younger brother (the chaperone) to help her and hold her up while she was rollerblading? So if you're courting a girl, you can't touch her, but your male chaperone can touch the girl you're courting? That makes no sense at all! Rules, rules, rules.

    5. 3:34 PM -- 100%

    6. I didn't watch the video, but if he chose to stick to his guns, so to speak, and keep the standards he had committed to, good for him! I value a man who keeps his word, even if people ridicule him for it.

  26. It's real life...not like some other reality shows that create drama. If pepole can't say something decent, maybe they should just be quiet. I doubt their lives are more thrilling.

    1. Counting on is full of staged content.

    2. TLC stages a lot of this show to have something "exciting" to air. It's not all real life. That should be very apparent to any viewer by now. And no, most of our lives are not thrilling (thank goodness), which is why we aren't on TV! When cameras follow you to the thrift store, the grocery store, and the coffee shop; when they show your little sister coming over to clean your sofa; when you spend the day trying to decide where to hang pictures; when burning the oven instruction booklet is as exciting as it gets; you probably shouldn't be on TV, either.

    3. Thing is, the Duggars supposedly do things that would be worth seeing - volunteering, charity work, church work, rallies, etc. But they only film and show what TLC thinks is entertaining - shopping, eating, decorating, plus all those parties and weddings. If they showed the other stuff, you might understand the Duggars more. However, you might also have more reason to disagree with them, if you were not of the same fundamental mindset as they are, or if you knew exactly what they do and have done. TLC is totally downplaying that aspect of the Duggars' lives now. They didn't at first. This is one of the things that's bothersome about the show these days. It doesn't truly represent who the Duggars are. Things are glossed over to try to avoid controversy, so you get to watch them buying stuff in a thrift store. Which would more people tune in to watch? Joe & Kendra's wedding for the third time, or Derick explaining on camera why he has "chosen" not to be on the show? See?

  30. One of the sweetest things I've ever seen was when the photographer was telling Joseph to put himself into a suggestive pose with Kendra, and Joseph not doing it. What a man! That one decision did a great deal to show Kendra how worthy he is of her trust. Good job, Joseph!

  31. Just wondering when Jessa will announce her pregnancy. You can see it in the pic. Now, before everyone jumps on me saying I’m rude for saying that, could still be baby weight, etc. I don’t mean it as hateful. But after watching this family for years, you can just kinda tell lol! They stand in certain ways and wear certain clothes to “hide” it before it’s time to announce it for the show. I’ll be surprised if she doesn’t announce it soon. Like, within the next month by the look of these photos. I thought she looked preggo in the last congrats video for Jeremy and Jinger.

    1. Mary this picture was taken months ago, she would have a VERY obvious bump by now if she was pregnant then, therefore what you're seeing in the picture IS leftover baby weight, and your comment is rude.

      Delete
    2. We don’t even know when this photo was taken it could be months ago...let’s not assume someone is pregnant before they announce. I think Jessa is a great mom and wants to give her kids the individual love and attention they deserve, therefore she may space a bit this time. She and Ben make beautiful kids for sure!

    3. 1:39 I don't think you're being hateful, just rude. Would you say that to someone in person: "Gee, you look preggo?"

  35. I love this family but TLC is making it hard to enjoy watching the shows! It seems all their focus is on their strict rules and babies as a theme when there is so much more to them!

  36. They really must think that viewers just can't get enough of those wedding preps, honeymoons, and pregnancy announcements.

  37. Are Michelle and Jim Bob gonna have more kids?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yay I can’t wait! I love this family!!! I do miss everyone else though too. I like how Bringing Up Bates is still Gil & Kelly’s and then it just spotlights the grown children as they build their own families and careers. I wish we got to see Jim Bob and Michelle and the other kids more. It would break up the weddings and babies that are starting to get a little tired. And I miss Anna!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. When the balloon popped, did Tyler say "blue"? Joe and Kendra's gender reveal was outside and blue smoke. So maybe this was Jinger's or Joy's?? I think Joy said they are keeping the gender as a surprise. Or could this be old stuff from Henry or Samuel?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would most like to know about Jinger’s beliefs now that she’s married to Jeremy and how that evolution took place. To go from authoring a book about the dangers of sleeveless tops, pants, and premarital cuddles, to embracing those things illustrates quite a shift in her worldview. I think most fans would appreciate hearing honest dialogue about it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Counting On shows a lot of really repetitive material. I really preferred seeing footage of the workings of the whole family. Although it is fun to see the kids' grown up lives, I would like to see wedding coverage condensed to allow room for other aspects of the family's lives. I miss seeing Amna and Michelle, Grandma, Jim Bob, and the younger siblings. The honeymoon episode should be interesting, since I haven't seen it yet, but I'll be wanting to see bsby footage by the time they show it#

  42. I honestly can't wait to see the new season and I bet Austin and Joy's announcement to the family is that she's pregnant, ugh I'm excited for the show to come back

  45. I agree with many of you. I am also tired of seeing the weddings again & again. Since I DVR the show, I can fast forward through stuff I have seen. But honestly, I most likely won't watch since the Dillard's are no longer on the show. All honestly, I love the Bates Family so much more! They are more real & relatable. Good-bye to the Duggar's! Too much "cardboard" stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The video is not working.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Everyone wonders why Joy and Austin let a film crew go on their honeymoon cause they wouldn't be alone. They were gone for 10 days and it just showed a part of their honeymoon. They could get what they showed in 2 or 3 days. They didn't show evenings and nights and some of the days. So they had a lot of time to themselves.
    And I think Kendra would have gone further in their relationship if she could have, Maybe that's why Joe didn't want to put his hand on her waist. Just saying.
