Stephen Collins' alleged child molestation confession is causing even more drama. According to TMZ, the cast of the WB series will no longer receive residual checks because the remaining two networks who aired the show have pulled it from their lineup.

Caryn Ross, mom and manager to child actors Niki and Sam Saletta, who appeared on the show, told TMZ that since reruns have stopped airing, the residual checks will stop coming.

In audio tapes released by TMZ on Oct. 7, Collins, who played a minister and dad on the series, allegedly confessed that he had inappropriate contact with multiple female children.

Following the release of the audio, the actor was fired from the upcoming film Ted 2, cut from an episode of Scandal, and 7th Heaven reruns were pulled from the air.

UP TV President Charley Humbard told Us Weekly in a statement last week: "As a top family-friendly network, we are deeply concerned for the families that are potentially affected by these disturbing allegations surrounding actor Stephen Collins. 7th Heaven has been a beloved family show and a fan-favorite on our network. We have made the decision to remove the series from our schedule effective at 5 p.m. ET today."
