With the lowest ratings ever, the famous Keeping up with the Kardashiansreality TV show could be stopped if nothing is done and fast. Have viewers abandoned the show after it entered its ninth season?
The first family of reality television premiered the ninth season on January 19 but the ratings for the network’s cash cow were significantly down as compared to its previous season, according to RadarOnline.
According to TV By The Numbers, last Sunday’s episode garnered only 2.56 million viewers, down almost half a million from the last season [eight] which pulled in 3.02 million viewers [premiered on June 2, 2013]
Question is: what went wrong? Too much fake drama?
While season eight focused on Kim Karadashian and the news about her pregnancy and relationship with Kanye West, the season nine premiere focused on Kris and Bruce Jenner’s split as well as KhloeKardashian and Lamar Odom’s marriage drama. Is it that fans don’t seem to enjoy the sad part of the Kardashians’ or couldn't believe the Kardashian women could truly leave the men who have stood by them for many years?
Here is what some fans tweeted:
Tome Wes @MUfan17: Real talk, this KUWTK episode is sad. Hate to see Bruce and mom breaking up, but it's for the best. Love my family. #FlatBillKardashian
Christy Walker @LenoirCityMomma: I've been watching #KUWTK and I hate that poor @khloekardashian is going thru a lot of stuff. She's way too Beautiful for this.
What do you guys think? Is it time they take a bow?
