North West Wasn't Enough to Save Kris Jenner's Talk Show -- Way to Disappoint Grandma

kris jennerI truly am shocked. Even after Kim's first post-baby appearance. Even after Kanye's endearing interview. Even after the unveiling of baby North West! Kris Jenner's talk show was still canceled after it's six-week trial run. According to sources, Kris was told: "There is no chance the talk show is going to get a green light from FOX. The ratings were averaging an abysmal 0.8 and advertisers were less than enthusiastic about it." The show did apparently get ratings boost from Kanye's appearance on the last day, but not enough to land her a full season.

Guess not everyone cares about the Kardashians as much as we thought.

I didn't watch Kris' show (I have a job, you guys), but I really was under the impression that it was doing alright, and it would for sure would get the go-ahead. I guess it was all just Kardashian Internet hype. I mean, don't get me wrong, I certainly didn't think there needed to be a Kris Jenner show in the already oversaturated market of daytime talk shows. But after North West's debut, I assumed it was basically a guarantee that America was going to be saddled with yet another hour of the Kardashians.

I'm sure Kris was bummed out when she heard the news, but at the end of the day, she's a fixture on three other TV shows, so it's kind of like, "Whatevs." And while Kris (which, side note, should have totally been named Kris!) was a talk show on paper, I think we all know the direction the program would have wound up taking: The fourth Kardashian reality show. Yeah, Kris would have sat behind a desk and interviewed celebrities, but you know there was a daily "Get Kim's Look!" or "Koffee With Khloe" segment in the works. I mean, seriously, how much more can we take?

RIP, Kris!. RIP.

Are you surprised that the show was cancelled?

Awww...so pimping the baby out didn't work for her.  Too bad.  Actually-I'm glad.  To much Kardashian crap on tv already.

What is the fascination with these people?!! Beyond annoying!

If this is true I am delighted. I said from the beginning that she would make the show all about Kim this


and Kim that. Remember she did state on tv that Kim was her favorite daughter. How do you think that


made her other kids feel.  She is a piece of work.  Sure Kim is her fav because she brings in the most


money. What kind of mom is that?

Oh my god! Noooooooooo! This is the worst most heartbreaking ever!! Whatever shall we do without kris jenner pimping out her favorite daughter on t.v. everyday instead of weekly? The world has lost THE greatest talk show host EVER!!

Kris Jenner is an appalling person. She is more pimp than mother.

Everybody under the sun has a talk show. That's why they all fail, because none of them are entertaining.

I'm still trying to figure out why the K-family is on tv to begin with? They have zero talent-no singing/acting/modeling etc..etc.. I cannot fathom what they have to even talk about??? No I did not watch this show-but am still happy it is done!
