Uh-Oh: ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ Ratings Tank Lowest in Three Years

It appears that all the latest drama surrounding the Kardashians and their rocky marriages, grand proposals, and recent additions to the family may not be translating into ratings.

Last season the show took a massive dip in ratings, but many suspected ratings would improve since the public appeared to have an interest in Khloe and Lamar Odom’s marriage dissolving, but even their rocky marriage isn’t appealing to viewers.

According to Radar Online via TV By the Numbers, the season nine premiere is the lowest it’s been in three years. The site reports:

Indeed, last Sunday’s episode garnered only 2.56 million viewers, down almost half-a-million from the season eight ratings bonanza that premiered on June 2, 2013, pulling in 3.02 million viewers, according to ratings obtained by TV By the Numbers.

    Not surprised. Overexposure and people are tired of the stunts. When the show first came on I was intrigued because they seemed so real to me. Now they are faker than a three dollar bill. I’m sure E will spin this though and say they have such high ratings, blah blah blah!

        Oh I know they are. They have made a fortune off that family, they don’t want the gravy train to end yet.

          I’m still not over them blatantly lying and saying Beyonce was pregnant just to cover up rumors about Kanye being gay. They never made a retraction or apologized either. No shame whatsoever.

      No because everyone saw right through them. I think they need to end the show after this season and just enjoy all the money they made. They are too addicted to the fame to do that though.

      That incident was SO WHACK – Kim did that for attention & because she CAN – Kim calls Kanye & tells him some kid made a racial comment & she was “oh so shaken up” – then she leads Kanye to the kid & stands there watching while Kanye beat that kid up. Kim is a trifling FAKE BTICH. She coulda very well just ignored that kid – he was only 18(!!!) – she calls herself “not paying any mind to negative comments” so why couldn’t she just ignore that 18 y.o. kid & keep it moving?? As usual she just wanted to show her funky man-made AYASS.

    You would think these people would take the hint, but they still won’t go away. Smh.

    The start of the long-awaited downfall. Hopefully they’ll totally go away by next year

    Why watch the show when Kim and co will just attention whore on Instagram and arranged pap photos? There’s no need to watch the show anymore because they don’t even give you a chance to miss them.

    Want to keep up with the Kardashians? Well just follow Kim on Instagram and check out her latest a-s shots. That’s the gist of her career right?

    I’m surprised they even have 2 million people watching.

      Me too! Who is watching? On Sunday nights, all I’m thinking about is Real Housewives of Atlanta and the Walking Dead (comes back next month). #shrugs

    Good. Now maybe Kim will spend more time with her daughter. The child is seven months and we still hardly ever see her spend any time with her. Sad.

    The Ks have stayed relevant and achieved success by being controversial and shocking. But now people are tired and there’s nothing they can do to surprise people anymore.

    This is where no “real” talent where get you. Perhaps they will realize that it is going to take more than botox to keep people entertained.
