‘Counting On’: Derick Dillard Wants Show On New Network, Says Don’t Watch TLC

Counting On’s Derick Dillard is speaking out against TLC once again and saying for everyone not to watch the network. Derick was actually fired from Counting On by TLC because of the fact that he wouldn’t stop talking negatively about the channel and the shows on it.

Derick Dillard was going to Twitter and trashing Jazz Jennings of I Am Jazz. Then he would also trash the fact that TLC has her on their channel. Derick finally got fired by the network.

Counting On: Derick Dillard wants the show to move networks

The Ashley’s Reality Roundup shared what Derick Dillard is saying now. It is obvious that he is still bitter about TLC firing him. His wife Jill Duggar Dillard hasn’t been seen on the show either recently. This all happened in a series of tweets that Derick shared. For some reason, he just tweets his feelings and nobody is censoring what he says on this social network. He isn’t TLC’s problem anymore, though.

Derick said, “Yeah hopefully [‘Counting On’] moves to UpTv soon.” The show Bringing Up Bates is on UP so this would make sense for the Duggars to be there. The thing is that the Duggar family seems really happy on TLC and there doesn’t seem to be a reason for them to move. Derick made it sound like one reason he isn’t happy with TLC is that they have commercials with Ellen DeGeneres on them. She is very openly gay. Derick went on to say, “I don’t watch any of them. I’m now aware of them, but I encourage others not to watch the filth on TLC… and other networks, but you brought up TLC shows.” You have to wonder if this means that Derick doesn’t even watch Counting On at all.

Derick and Jill Dillard updates

Derick and Jill Dillard seem to be doing well. They still have two children together. You can’t see them on reality television anymore, but they still give updates on their social networks. Jill also posts on the family blog about what is going on. Former Counting On star Derick Dillard recently started going to law school. It looks like he realized he is going to need a paycheck since TLC isn’t going to be paying them anymore. Jill is constantly posting recipes and things about the kids. It looks like they are doing well.

Come back to Soap Dirt often for more TLC’s Counting On and Duggar News. This show airs on Monday nights on TLC, but you won’t be seeing Derick Dillard there. There doesn’t seem to be any reason for Counting On to actually move off TLC.
