Kardashians Ratings Crushed by “Game of Thrones,” Motown Special, Fall Well Under 1 Million Again this Season


Those krazy Kardashians. Their ratings are slipping fast now.

With “Game of Thrones” back on HBO at 9pm, the Ks are suffering. This past Sunday they had just 895,000 viewers. Two weeks ago they had 1.12 million. Their fans are not sticking around like they used to.

The million mark is precarious for the Kardashians. Under 900,00 is even worse. Alas, Kardashian fans are probably turning to “GoT,” where the stakes are a bit higher even if the wars are not as bloody.

Are the K’s coming to the end of their ride? The E! channel still needs them until they can find something else to replace them. But their day in the sun is in decline.
