how much does the duggar family get paid for their show on tlc?

Reality producer Terence Michael suspects that TLC budgets about $250,000 to $400,000 per episode of the Duggars’ “19 Kids and Counting” show. He says that reality-show families earn about 10% of a show's per-episode budget, which would mean the Duggars would take home around $25,000-$40,000 for each episode. Each one typically takes 4 or 5 days to film.
