'I Am Cait' Ratings CRASH — Why Kris Jenner Could Be To Blame
Caitlyn Jenner's show I Am Cait crashed in the ratings after Kris Jenner went on a media blitz, RadarOnline.com has learned. Did she sabotage the show?
Kris never hid her fury over the way her marriage to Caitlyn ended, but could a recent round of interviews where she spoke about her ex have caused the ratings crisis for I Am Cait?
Caitlyn's KUWTK spin-off show, I Am Cait, was a ratings success for the first season, bringing in 2.7 million viewers for the 2015 premiere episode, but the March 6, 2016 season two premiere was a shocking failure.
I Am Cait wasn't even in the top 100 shows on cable for Sunday night, earning a paltry 745,000 viewers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Caitlyn spoke about wanting to date men in the episode, which Kris called "confusing" on Ellen just four days before I Am Cait premiered.
Kris tried to express sympathy for her ex, but could she have driven the ratings down with her own negative comments about the show? "Caitlyn says she wasn't her true authentic self for most of her life, and knew when she was 4 that she felt like that," Kris told Ellen DeGeneres.
The couple had been married for 25 years, but Kris took a sly dig at her ex before the show aired. "You know, I am human and I have my feelings but I try and it's baby steps," Kris said on Ellen. "It's like the mourning of somebody that you feel you are never going to really see or be with again."
The I Am Cait ratings plunge is a sharp contrast to the Season One finale, which brought in 1.26 million viewers. Do you think Kris sabotaged the show? Sound off in comments below.
