Could ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ end up ‘kancelled?’ After Season 12 has drawn historically low ratings, Kris Jenner is reportedly ‘terrified’ that the show will get axed and she’ll lose her massive $100 million dollar deal!
“Kris is absolutely desperate to save the show,” a source tells STAR magazine. Season 12 of KUWTK hasn’t been a hit, as the May 1 season premiere only pulled in 2.2. million viewers, the lowest debut in the show’s history. It hasn’t gotten any better, as the July 26 episode only had 1.2 million viewers, making it the least watched KUWTK episode ever!
These numbers have reportedly sent Kris, 60, into a panic, as STAR reports that the momager is “terrified” that producers will soon back out of the record-breaking $100 million dollar deal the family negotiated in Feb. 2015 to extend the show for four more seasons. Even after nearly ten years on the air, the thought that the show might end reportedly caused Kris to have a “meltdown,” according to STAR. Oh no!
With Kris reportedly in crisis mode over possibly losing her flagship show, you think her family would be supporting her in trying to salvage KUWTK? Not so, according to the report, as the show has “turned into a grind for the kids.”
Kourtney Kardashian, 37, has her hands full with her kids and has said that she would be “so happy” if the show went off the air. Meanwhile, Kylie Jenner, 18, is busy taking over the makeup world, and Kendall Jenner, 20, is focused on successful modeling career. Kris is reportedly pressuring Kim Kardashian, 35, to stay on the show, but Kanye West, 39, is encouraging the mother of his two kids to move on.
Kris, not surprisingly, hasn’t take this well, as the insider says she feels “betrayed.” Still, just because Kris is down, don’t count her out. “Even though her family has had it up [to] their eyeballs with reality television, Kris…will keep looking for a way out,” the inside source says. “If there’s anything you can count on, it’s that Kris will never give up!”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Has Keeping Up With the Kardashians run its course or do you think that Kris will find away to turn the show’s ratings problems around?
