36. Not The Onion, but one anonymous source in Star Magazine a month ago

“The family can’t afford to not have the show—it is their main source of income, and with a family of that size, without it they’re in enormous trouble,” says a friend, adding the Arkansas couple are willing to beg for forgiveness to get the cash flowing again.

“They know they have to at least pretend to be sorry about what happened, and now they want a spin-off where Jim Bob and Michelle would give advice to abuse victims—even though they’re in denial about their culpability in Josh’s crimes.”

But a publicity stunt may not be enough. “After the Megyn Kelly interview, when they basically made excuses for Josh, they’re done,” says the source. “It was a disastrous move that ruined their brand. It would take a miracle to get them back on TV.”

That one claim is where this all come from. So it's tabloid gossip, and ought to be taken with a pinch of salt.
