The Kardashians's KUWTK’ Ratings Crashes To Historic Low
Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality show had another ratings crash this week, with hundreds of thousands of viewers tuning out of the E! series.
Once a huge traffic draw, the latest episode of the Sunday night series hit a new low in the ratings, leading to speculation that the family’s time on TV could be coming to an end,Radar Online reports.
According to Nielsen, only 1.41 million viewers tuned in to the show.
That was a significant drop from the previous episode, where Kardashian tearfully said she was afraid she was going to be raped and murdered by the armed men who tied her up and stole her jewelry during her Paris heist in October 2016.
The first two episodes of Season 13 had 1.48 million and 1.58 million, respectively.
“This sucks,” a source close to production told Radar. “These were big episodes and they were supposed to bring in big numbers. This is bad.”
Viewers took to Twitter to rant about the show, calling for it to be cancelled.
“#IHaveBeenThinkingAnd I think the network needs to cancel #KUWTK it’s just no use to anyone anymore…” one person wrote.
As Radar previously reported, the Jenners and Kardashians are indeed worried about their futures on reality TV.
“The entire family is completely freaking out right now. They would not know what they would do with themselves if the show got cancelled,” a source told Radar.
