The Kardashian empire is slowly but surely crumbling, and last Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is proof — because it was the reality TV show’s lowest ratings of the season, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The one-time hit E! show gathered a mere 1.79 million viewers overall and only 1 million viewers between the ages of 18 and 49, which is said to be the most important demo in TV, compared to the Season 8 premiere, We’re Having A Baby, that boasted 3.02 million overall viewers.
“This is looking really bad for the Kardashians and their show,” an industry insider said.
“When Kendra Wilkinson‘s show dropped below 1 million viewers they dropped it, so the Kardashian reality show is definitely in trouble.”
Competing with hit shows like Breaking Bad and The Big Bang Theory, which boasted 10.28 million and 20.44 million viewers respectively, the Kardashian brand has taken a noticeable hit in popularity this season after being plagued with negative publicity.
Kim took months out of the public eye after having her baby daughter with beau Kanye West, while both Khloe and Kris’ marriages appear to be crumbling beneath them.
Kris’ marital woes with Bruce Jenner have played out on the show, with the former Olympian moving out into his own Malibu bachelor pad and Kris’ own sister spilling the beans that the couple have separated and Bruce has “sought out a lawyer” for a possible multi-million dollar divorce.
Meanwhile, Khloe’s husband Lamar Odom was caught in the middle of affair allegations with numerous women earlier this year, quickly followed by the news that the former LA Clipper has been struggling with drug abuse — namely the prescription drugs Oxycontin and Ambien, as well as illicit drugs like cocaine and crack.
The couple are currently living separately, and divorce is suspected as imminent with Khloe recently removing the “Odom” from her name on both Instagram and Twitter.
