When Jessa tries on wedding gowns, and there are TLC cameras in tow, you can expect huge ratings -- and that is exactly what happened. According to People Magazine, 19 Kids And Counting is doing better than ever before. The popular TLC program ranked number one among women for the top cable show in prime time. The premiere of the show scored the biggest ratings ever, and many believe it is because of what people are getting to see, and what the family is sharing with the watching world.
"As her sisters, her mother and her mother-in-law Guinn Seewald tearfully watch, Jessa, 22, models an array of wedding dresses at Tesori Bridal in Fayetteville, Arkansas. She ultimately chooses a light blush Allure dress with a fully beaded bodice of Swarovski crystals and pearls," reports People Magazine.
Aside from Jessa trying on wedding gowns, viewers also watched her older sister, Jill, continue her pregnancy journey. It is clear that big things are happening for many of the Duggar children, and so many fans simply love watching these kids grow into adults, especially after watching them for eight seasons.
The overall theme of the ninth season of the show is the wedding and a baby, with promos featuring Jessa holding a sign that reads "I do," while Jill holds a sign that reads, "I'm due." People who have never watched the show are tuning in because most people love watching other people's happiness. As evidenced by the family's official Facebook page, there will be a lot of sweet, personal moments shared with viewers this season. Fans got to see Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard, hear their son's heartbeat for the first time. Many more moments like this one are expected over the next couple of weeks.
After Jessa tries on wedding dresses, she is filmed doing other wedding-prep, and as she prepares to marry Ben Seewald, viewers will be along for the ride. If 19 Kids And Counting has a tenth season, there will likely be even more baby fun. While Jessa and Ben (who are now married in present time) revealed that they wanted to adopt a child, those plans have been put on hold. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the two aren't in a rush to have a baby, but future seasons could give fans a front row seat to that life-changing moment.
19 Kids And Counting airs on Tuesday nights on TLC.
