Josh Duggar's antics caused a lot of strife for his family several months back and the outrage over all that emerged about him led TLC to cancel 19 Kids and Counting. Much of the family is back with the new TLC show Jill & Jessa: Counting On, but new reports claim that discord over Josh is causing some issues within the family regarding the show. What's the scoop?

The oldest Duggar siblings are facing pressure regarding Josh

The new show is focusing on Jill Duggar Dillard, Jessa Duggar Seewald, their husbands, kids, and several other Duggar siblings, and so far, Josh has quite specifically not been in the mix of things. Jinger just got engaged to Jeremy Vuolo and there has been plenty of coverage of them on the TLC show, but one topic has remained mostly cast to the side: what's going on these days with Josh.

According to Hollywood Life, however, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are trying to push for their oldest son to get in on the reality television action again.

As Jill & Jessa: Counting On came together, Josh was away at a treatment center being treated for sex addiction. However, he has been home for a while now and reports originating from InTouch magazine indicate that Jim Bob and Michelle are pushing their other kids to let their brother become a part of the show, which recently began Season 2. Insiders claim that this is causing intense strife within the family, as Michelle and Jim Bob want Josh to appear on the show to rehabilitate his image, while the Duggar siblings, particularly Jill and Jessa, are saying no way.

Duggar show loses more advertisers

Ultimately, it sounds as if Jim Bob and Michelle may not have much leverage to try to push for this.

As E! Online indicates, four more advertisers have pulled their ads from airing during Jill & Jessa: Counting On. Many companies had yanked their advertisements from TLC after the original scandal, but there has been less controversy now with the new show. However, reports detail that Trivago, Thumbtack, Gerber Life, and Hotwire are now telling TLC that they do not want their ads running during the Duggar show.

Will Jill, Jessa, and the other Duggar siblings relent and give Jim Bob and Michelle what they want in terms of having Josh appear on the show? If he does pop up on-screen, how will that impact TLC's advertisers across the network and specifically for Jill & Jessa: Counting On?
