Reality star and super-momager, Kris Jenner, has some sad news, her talk show, “Kris”, will not be renewed. It looks like even Kanye debuting baby North West’s first photo on grandma Kris Jenner’s talk show, “Kris” wasn’t enough to save it. Fox executives have notified the Kardashian matriarch that her talk show, will not be picked up and will go down in history as a six week trial talk show. “Kris” first premiered on July 15th and featured Kim’s first post baby appearance via video. A source close to the show revealed:
“There is no chance the talk show is going to get a green light from FOX. The ratings were averaging an abysmal 0.8 and advertisers were less than enthusiastic about it. Kris did get a ratings bump for her last show when Kanye West revealed the first baby pic of daughter, North West, with Kim, but that was a one time shot in the arm and it wouldn’t be indicative of what the ratings trend would be.”
New talk show, “The Real” beat “Kris” in female demographics, which was also a trial run, is expected to be picked up nationally. Coincidentally, Adrienne Bailon is a cohost of “The Real”, and dated formerly dated Rob Kardashian, Kris’ only son. She actually has his name tattooed on her body and has made multiple references to it on “The Real“. Something I’m sure ruffled Kris’ feathers.
Fox isn’t expected to make a huge announcement out of respect for the family’s recent negative publicity following the cheating and drug use allegations of Khloe Kardashian Odom’s husband Lamar. Additionally, it would cause humiliation to Kris who had wanted to prove herself as a talk show host but failed to set herself apart from the others.
But still you’ve got to give her credit for attempting to make her dream come true. Although I highly doubt this is the last you hear of Kris Jenner.
