Kris Jenner‘s talk show bombed – not even Kanye showing off pictures of a then-newborn North West could save it. But since the Kardashian family had such a stronghold over TV, everyone was sorta left wondering why Momager Kris’s show just couldn’t get any ratings. Well, as a Fox exec put it, she’s just not all that interesting.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
On Thursday, in a discussion with The Hollywood Reporter about three new shows Fox will test this summer, Frank Cicha, senior vp and president of programming for the Fox Television Stations, admitted he knew by the time the test ended that Kris wasn’t going to work. “I think she was pretty uninteresting [on camera],” Cicha said. “That was one where [sister company] 20th Television tried to capitalize on a name. … When the camera was on she looked not just like a deer in the headlights, but like a deer that already got hit.”
“It wasn’t a disaster in the ratings,” said Cicha, adding that it would have been an expensive show to produce and wasn’t a good fit for the rest of his station group’s schedule. “When you added it up, it wasn’t a show that made sense for us.”
Damn, that’s cold, Cicha, but so, so true. She’s NOT interesting. No one in that family is interesting and I’m not sure why we have ever acted like any of them are. So glad someone finally had the balls to say it, though.
