Fans of the Kardashian family will be disappointed to know that their favorite show is getting the ax. Publications claimed that Keeping Up With The Kardashians is witnessing a decline in ratings – something that almost ‘horrified’ Kris Jenner. It is also rumored that Kris tried all that she could to keep the Kardashian-Jenner ship sailing.
She even tempted her daughter Kim Kardashian West with an extra million to up the drama quotient. However, it is not known if Kim took the bait. Kim and her husband Kanye West’s popularity with the audience was one of the reasons to get them more involved than others like Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie.
According to a Hollywood Life report, the Jenner mom is absolutely shattered with news that Season 12 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) is not as big a hit as the other previous seasons. The season premiere in May garnered only 2.2 million viewers, while the July 26 episode hit an all-time low with 1.2 million viewership.
Many believe that the numbers will spell doom for the recent $100 million deal that the family signed with E! Network. As per their contract, which was made last February, E! Network is supposed to keep the show on air for four more years.
Another reason why the show may go off air is the lack of interest shown by the Kardashian and Jenner kids, states a cover story in Star magazine. Kourtney is already busy with her kids and her broken relationship with Scott Disick. She believes that it would be in everyone’s best interest if the show ended. Kendall is busy with her modelling career and the Jenner mom feels that there is not much interest in the Khloe-Lamar Odom angle. That leaves her with Kylie and Kim.
An article in Inquisitr reveals that the youngest of the Jenners wants to focus on her cosmetics business than on the reality show. It adds that it was also her who revealed that KUWTK might get cancelled.
Another article in Hollywood Life quoted the youngster telling Glamour magazine that her cosmetics business is her main focus as of now. She also wants to have all her products out in 20 years. She, however, added that it didn’t mean her exiting the show, which was bound to end someday. As a result, she wants Kardashian West to help her keep the show on air.
However, fans of the show can relax as KUWTK is not going off the air anytime soon. Gossip Cop has debunked the cancellation news and has revealed that it is just a click-bait story by Star magazine. Gossip Cop revealed that Star magazine has published this false story for the second time now and it is still as untrue as it was two years ago.
