Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians reached an all-time low of 1.7 million viewers, and despite the fact that the show is renewed through 2015, rumors are swirling that E! could pull the plug on the series sooner than that!
"This is looking really bad for the Kardashians and their show," a source told Radar. "When Kendra Wilkinson‘s show dropped below 1 million viewers they dropped it, so the Kardashian reality show is definitely in trouble."
Just for comparison, after Kim Kardashian married Kris Humphries four years ago, 4.1 million viewers watched their wedding episode. The show premiered in 2007, and in April of 2012 momager Kris Jenner inked a $40 million deal for three more seasons of the reality show, but according to the site, the network may have the option to cancel the show early.
So what's causing the numbers drop? Aside from the fact that the show is uh, totally fake, the family has dealt with a lot of negative press over the past few months. From Kris and Bruce's fighting to Lamar Odom's alleged cheating and drug addiction, this summer has been rough for the famous fam. On top of that, there's so many spinoff shows we can't even keep track of which city Kim and Kourtney (or Khloe) are "taking" next.
Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are reportedly getting their own series, but now Radar reports that that could be in jeopardy...
If the show gets cancelled, would it be the beginning of the end for their empire?
Do you think Keeping Up With The Kardashians should end?
