Ratings: “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” Sinks Again Below 1 Million Viewers, Finishes Last Among Almost All Sunday Shows


Apart from causing trouble in Broadway theaters, the Kardashians are once again in the news.

Ratings for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” have been trending down down down all season. On Sunday night they fell to just 941,000 total viewers.

That number is back to where they were in October. In November, the K’s picked up steam when they had some juicy material and faked public fights. But it seems like the fans got wise pretty fast.

The K’s were trounced, for example, on cable by Real Housewives of Orange County– which had 1.7 million viewers, nearly twice as many.

A Hallmark movie– which is the hallmark of drivel– scored 2.1 million viewers. Even Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” scored over 1 million eyes. The K’s were literally finished last at 9pm among all TV shows aired nationally at 9pm on Sunday including all but one network TV show– the reboot of “Charmed.”
