It's hard to believe it was once called The Learning Channel, as it looks like ever since they took a turn towards downscale reality shows, TLC and Discovery have nurtured stars with a knack for causing trouble.
Mama June The matriarch of TLC's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" led to the show's cancelation in 2014 after it was learned she was dating a registered sex offender.
Toby Willis The star of TLC's "The Willis Family" was charged in 2016 with raping an underage girl.
Josh Duggar The eldest of the kids on TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" molested five underage girls, four of them his sisters, according to a police report. He later said he had "acted inexcusably" as a teen.
Billy Brown The star of Discovery's "Alaskan Bush People" pleaded guilty to lying on applications in order to receive $22,000 in government benefits.
Will Hayden The star of Discovery's "Sons of Guns" was arrested on multiple rape charges in 2014.
