Ratings: Kardashians End Their Season on a Low Note, Drop 37% from Beginning of Season to Just 851K Viewers


The Kardashians can’t keep up with themselves.

Their season finale pulled in just 851,000 viewers on Sunday night– a steep drop of 37% from the season premiere of 1.3 million.

They pulled out all the stops, too, throwing in Kanye’s problems, and Kim’s efforts to get a woman released from jail.

But the overall trend for the K’s on E! is down, down, down. The week before only produced 941,000 viewers.

When they return, if they return, the K’s will be looking at fewer than 1 million viewers and a decline to around 500,000.

All good things come to an end. And even bad things. At least for now, we get a break.

The top cable show on Sunday night was a Hallmark Hall of Fame Christmas movie, with 3.4 million viewers. The K’s were beaten soundly at 9pm by “Alaska: The Last Frontier” with 1,990,000.
