It's official: TV as I know it has sunk to an all-new low. We heard buzzing of this a few months back, but today it is confirmed. Kris Jenner, momager extraordinaire, is getting her own hour-long talk show called Kris. The daytime show will air on Fox, where viewers will get to see Kris chat with celebrities and cover the fashion, beauty, and general lifestyle beats. The EVP of Twentieth TV says Momma Kardashian will be "offering real advice to her family [and] sharing personal moments with viewers."
Oprah, Maury, Ellen ... Kris? Erm, yeah, about that. I don't think so.
Let's be real here: there are already enough junkie daytime talk shows as it is. While I don't think Kris' show is going to be the WORST thing to hit daytime TV ever (that's a category reserved for the Tyra Banks Show), I just can't envision it as a program worth watching.
Don't get me wrong, I'm just as stupidly addicted to watching the Kardashians and their reality TV life as any other 20-something Bravo TV fan. But this, well, this is just Kardashian overload. When they started to expand from Keeping Up With the Kardashians, it was all a lot to handle. One second Kourtney and Kim are in New York, then, hey, there pops in Khloe who joins the fun in Miami while she's taking a break from filming her OWN spin-off with Lamar. It's just, well, too much. So many spin-offs, my head is spinning.
The good news? This is a trial run. Something tells me the world will see very soon that Kris Jenner is NOT the next Oprah.
Would you watch Kris Jenner's talk show? Do you think this is ridiculous?
