No More Keeping Up with the Kardashians: America’s Most Useless Family Ending Series After 20 Seasons


Say goodbye to the Kardashians, America’s most useless family. They’re wrapping up their series next year after 20 seasons which seemed like 40.

“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” couldn’t keep up with the ratings. As I’ve noted the last couple of years, the numbers are in steep decline. So it’s time to wrap it up. The E! Channel will replace the show with test patterns.

In the last season maybe we’ll get to see Kanye West’s latest mental collapse, his threat to divorce Kim, his presidential run, and all of that. That should make for a good finale. The rest of them can light themselves on fire or whatever. Maybe their exit will dovetail with Trump’s. Rainbows!

Kim posted to her 188 million followers, most of whom are in comas: “Without ‘Keeping Up with The Kardashians,’ I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years,” she wrote. “This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever.”
