'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Season 13 Latest News: Kris Jenner Enraged As Pilot Episode's Ratings Swing to All-time Low
What was expected to be a barnburner pilot episode turned out to be a one-sided affair as the premiere of the highly-anticipated American television show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Season 13 cruised to its lowest TV ratings ever, much to the dismay of one of its main star Kris Jenner. The ex-partner of Robert Kardashian and the controversial Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn) has shown her frustrations over the show's lackluster first airing.
The pilot episode of the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Season 13 was reportedly earned a not-so-warm reception by the viewers as only 1.48 million total viewers turned to televisions to watch the show's premiere, an unprecedented turn out which made Kris Jenner up on her feet. The recent figures may look impressive but comparing to season 12's viewers of 2.19 million, the ratings disappointingly tumbled by a whopping 33% in just a year.
The dramatic drop in the ratings of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Season 13 premiere, which features the Kardashian-Jenner clan, sent Kris Jenner, the person who mages the show, fuming at the idea that her television show might be cancelled by cable network, E!. Notably, the reality show was one of the primary sources of income for the family.
Unfortunately, Kris Jenner was boiling into disappointment as she had promised her daughter, Kim Kardashian, a lucrative bonus if she disclosed the details regarding the controversial Paris robbery in the said pilot episode of the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Season 13 premiere. With its ratings cruising to its low time low, it seems that Kris Jenner would not get a break even.
The trailer of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Season 13 featured Kim opening up about some first-hand details of the Paris robbery, a good bait for viewers given to further boosts ratings. But not even a Kim robbery drama could steer the Kris Jenner's show onto greater heights.
Indeed, Kris Jenner needs a sort of miracle for the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Season 13 so that the show could be saved from cancellation. Can Kim-Kanye tandem create magic for her?
