No One Wants The Kardashians Anymore


Do you remember how last year, the viewers for the Kardashian show on E! was way down? This season it is down another 15% even with all that wedding drama known in advance. In addition to even less people watching the show, The NY Post says that tabloids who put Kim Kardashian on their covers saw an 18% decline in people buying covers. That is the key. If her covers don't sell, then she will not be on covers and someone else will be the go to person. Like Jennifer Aniston. You know who sells well? Teen Moms. It is kind of like that Jerry Springer effect. He killed Oprah in the ratings when Oprah went away from that kind of program. People like train wrecks as long as it is not them in the train wreck. Clubs are not booking the sisters and one restaurant interviewed for the blurb says that if a Kardashian visited, they would have to hold a disaster meeting right after to figure out how to counter the bad publicity.

Honestly do not know anyone who watches the show. I have seen about 20 scattered min total and that's because I was too lazy to find the remote.

Praise all that is holy! Let the K ship sink. (No offense to the poor souls who had to endure the cruise ship nightmare in Italy).

Rita said...

Hallelujah! Isn't the NYPost a lover of all things Kardashian?

Kim is a fixture on Page 666!?

Apparently the boycott is working!

I don't feel too bad for them - they've had more than their 15 minutes, are richer than God, and they'll be just fine if they go away from the spotlight forever. And so will the rest of us!

RenoBlondee said...

Oh yeah, they are definetly on their way out!

'This season it is down another 15%...'

'...tabloids who put Kim Kardashian on their covers saw an 18% decline...'


YES! *happy dance*

pegd said...

I have wondered recently if ratings were down and if they "created" the recent Khloe daddy drama for extra PR.

Ms Cool said...

Thank goodness.

Bout time......

Mango said...

Didn't they make $65 million last year? Isn't that enough? Why can't they just cash out and go the hell home.

SusanB said...

finally the public seems to come to their senses. I'll be happy when that bunch of non-talents is off our screens.

Reese said...

Might this also mean that the sex tape as a vehicle for public acclaim and undeserved riches is also on its way out? One can only hope.

Over Christmas I was on two 14hr flights...at the airport I wanted to stock up on mags for the trip, but these bitches were on nearly every mag cover. I refused to buy any & suffered boredom on both flights rather than support them.

I co-sign all the above comments.

LMFAO

Ida Blankenship said...

But who will take their place on CDAN? I mean, you already devote over half your blog's space to this family.

This is a family that *should* be culturally obsolete, and you've spent a LOT of time discussing their actions.

Just sayin.'

Lelaina Pierce said...

^Hi Ida!

"Everything the reality family touches turns absolutely toxic."

OUCH!

Miss X said...

This made me smile. Thank you!

I don't hate the K's but I am sick of their media manipulation, especially after Kim's sham of a wedding.

lutefisk said...

There are so many of them and they like to live high on the hog. I don't see the money they previously made holding out too long.

mngddess said...

Oh, Ida.

Look, we got rid of Heidi and creepy Spencer, Paris is holding on by a thread, so it's time for the K's to go!

YourNameHere said...

You say clubs are not booking them, but then why the hell did they for NYE? Which is it? Oh and it's damned time this happened!

Wil said...

First - Yesssssss!!!

Second - @Ida - if I were a betting woman I would say Casey Anthony.

And, third, also @Ida .. WELCOME BACK!!

NYCGirl said...

La la la. :)

ardleigh said...

Oh Happy Day!

Tempestuous Grape said...

@Ida This. EXACTLY. Agreed.

rareavis said...

I really dislike the whole clan. I admire Kris Jenner though, she's a genius. Before you hate on me, think of what she's done for her family.
I am boycotting all things Kardashian as well.

Thank you, Jesus! Did Tim Tebow pray for this? I won't mock him anymore.
