No One Watched Kim Kardashian’s 40th Birthday Party as “KUWTK” Scores Just 375,000 Viewers, Lowest Ratings Ever


The poor Kardashians. Putting their show on Thursday nights has been a disaster for E! because that’s been the day for either presidential Town Halls or debates.

This past Thursday, while 55 million people were tuned into debate coverage, basically no one watched “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” The show scored its lowest ratings ever– just 375,000 people. Yikes. The end is really near.

Things were so bad that E! has put the entire episode on YouTube, so everyone can watch it for free. I FF’d through it to get the picture. With ears covered. You’ll have to scroll through and see if there’s footage from Kim’s 15th birthday in 1995, which would have been a few days after OJ Simpson was acquitted with help from her late father, Robert.
