Bates Family on TLC

The Bates family is coming to TLC! They will be featured in an hour-long special on March 13th at 10:00 PM EST/9:00 PM CST ("The Bates Family: Baby Makes 19"), as well as in eight, half-hour episodes that will air this summer. 

Kelly Bates writes the following on the family's blog:"Our priorities are to put God first, our family second, and ministry and work third. We want to be careful to maintain those priorities, but at the same time, the many e-mails we receive show that families are desiring encouragement as they endeavor to fulfill the difficult task of parenting. We certainly don’t claim to have all the answers, nor do we claim to have a model family… quite contrary, we recognize we have these same needs for encouragement. We are grateful for the many examples of other Godly families who have greatly influenced us!"

The Duggar's shot TLC Network promos today with a 20 person camera crew and some pretty sweet camera equipment, perhaps for the next season.

Will you do a recap on the Bates' show?

Exciting news, it made my day to hear that the Bates will have their own show. I hope both the Duggar's and the Bates' are on for many years to come.

I know this is a blog about the Duggars, but will you keep us updated on the Bates' show as well?

Also, does it seem a little strange to anyone else that TLC is starting another show about a very conservative, Christian family with 19 kids (and counting)? I'm wondering if the Duggars are ready to be done with reality TV and so TLC asked the Bates to take their place. I'd be very sad to see the Duggars go, but at the same time I love the Bates, so if it's a trade-off, I think I can live with it. :)

I thought the show was a little boring but I still liked it enough to watch again
