Things aren’t looking great for the Kardashians. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s divorce and drug dilemma is spiraling out of control, Kim Kardashian supposedly can’t lose weight and NOW the Kardashian TV series isn’t getting good ratings AT ALL!
This week’s episode only grabbed 1.79 million viewers. In the entire history of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” only three other episodes dropped to the 1 million-viewer range.
The season eight premiere had 3 million viewers, but back in season five, the series premiere had nearly 5 million viewers.
Also, this season is one of the lowest rated seasons overall, getting on average about 2.5 million viewers per episode. This is lower than all previous seasons.
Is the Khloe/Lamar drama ruining the “brand,” as Kris Jenner might say? Possibly. Or could it just be that the Kardashian drama OFF screen is far more interesting than the fake phone calls and blasé vacations to Greece with the Jenners that they show ON screen?
And it doesn’t seem like season nine will be any more interesting. Khloe has been spotted filming new episodes WITH her wedding band on which leads us to believe that the Lamar drama WON’T be documented in the new season, which is the ONLY interesting thing about the Kardashians anymore.
Sorry, Kim, but wearing Givenchy and going to Paris just isn’t that fascinating to anyone.
