Can’t Keep Up: Kardashians Lowest Ratings Ever, Drop 15% Last Week from Final Season Debut 2 Weeks Ago


The Kardashians can’t keep up with themselves or anyone else.

The self involved family fell to their lowest ratings ever on Thursday night with just 569,000 viewers. That’s a 15% drop from two weeks ago when their season began, and a 35% fall from last April’s end of season episode.

About a million viewers have decamped since a year ago.

“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” in its final season for a good reason: no one is watching. It’s a simple calculation. The Era of the Kardashians is over. Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn, is graduating to a “Real Housewives” show. That’s what we call doing the whole 180. Still no future for Scott Disick. The rest of them will just fade away.

And Kanye West? His presidential campaign is booming. Not.

How will “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” end? With 89 viewers and gunplay. That’s what I’m hearing. The final shot will be the close up of a fake eyelash on a driveway.
