Kris Jenner’s run as a talk show host was nearly as quick as her daughter Kim Kardashian’s marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. FOX executives have told the reality star that her talk show’s six-week trial run will be just that – a six-week trial run. According to Jenner:
“There’s 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”
Here’s the part I love: Kris Jenner even coerced her daughter and Kanye West to have baby North West’s first appearance on her show for ratings. This wasn’t explicitly said, but clearly she was working her motherly influence on that ploy. In the end, despite the ratings boost from that, Kris didn’t do enough to separate herself from a crowded talk show market.
The good news for her is that the announcement will be made in a low-key fashion so it won’t generate a lot of negative press for Kris. Perhaps she should switch her attention to her family and on her daughter Khloe whose marriage is failing miserably.
