Kris Jenner’s show canceled after six-week trial?
New reports claimed that Kris Jenner’s new FOX chat show Kris had been cancelled after its initial six-week trial run.
But the programme’s Twitter page has now responded to claims that Kris Jenner was canned and insist that no decision has been made just yet surrounding the future of her show.
A short message to fans was posted on Twitter, stating that current rumors surrounding Kris Jenner were “false”.
“Rumors flying are false but glad everyone is still buzzing about our 6 week summer run!!!!” a Tweet from the Kris Jenner Show’s official Twitter page read.
A source close to Kris Jenner also told Us Weekly that FOX actually “likes the show”.
“It’s way too early for that decision to have been made,” the insider said.
“And on top of that, FOX likes the show.”
It had been previously reported that the momager’s daytime series suffered such poor ratings that the network was adamant that “there is no chance” she will be picked up for a second season.
This after the talk show received a ratings boost from an appearance by Kanye West – where he revealed the first pictures of his daughter North.
A source allegedly told RadarOnline on Wednesday: “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.”
Adding: “Kris did get a ratings bump for her last show when Kanye West revealed the first baby pic of daughter, North West, with Kim, but that was a one time shot in the arm and it wouldn’t be indicative of what the ratings trend would be.”
It appeared that the 57-year-old reality star was hoping to ride the wave of her family’s fame to prop up her chat show’s ratings.
But apparently five days a week of the Kardashians may have been a bit of an overload.
The cancellation rumor comes as Queen Latifah and Bethenny Frankel try their hand this fall at hosting their own talk shows in the highly competitive field of daytime.
Just recently Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake saw both of their shows axed after just one season.
A source further explained to Radar: “It’s a very crowded market and Kris didn’t do anything to set herself apart from the field.
“Believe it or not, most of America doesn’t want to hear about the Kardashian’s for an hour everyday.”
It was also claimed that FOX would be replacing Kris Jenner with panel-format talk show title The Real, after it scored high in the key female demographics following its pilot run on July 15.
FOX is expected to make an official announcement surrounding the future of Kris Jenner in a few weeks, but it was also reported on Wednesday that they were delaying any bad news about the show out of respect to the troubles the Kardashian family is currently facing.
Khloe Kardashian is said to be in the midst of a marital crisis as her husband Lamar Odom is alleged to be in the grip of a serious addiction to drugs.
Lamar Odom had been holed up in a hotel after Khloe Kardashian reportedly “threw him out of the marital home”, following a failed intervention last week.
Despite no confirmation surrounding the future of the show, an insider at the network explained that a cancellation “will be announced in a low key fashion, probably on a Friday afternoon so it won’t generate a ton of negative press for Kris”.
