Reality show fans will be able to keep up with the Kardashian family for another season.
E! Entertainment has announced that it has renewed its latest reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, for a second run. The show premiered in October, and has since then been the highest-rated series on Sunday nights among women 18 to 34. Its November 4 telecast averaged a 1.06 rating among adults and a 1.7 among women 18 to 34, according to Nielsen Media Research.
The network also said that Keeping Up with the Kardashians has reached over 13 million total viewers in its’ first month on air.
Produced by American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and Bunim-Murray Productions, Keeping Up with the Kardashians is a reality series that follows the lives of Hollywood socialite Kim Kardashian and her large family, which include stepfather Bruce Jenner, mother Kris Kardashian, and siblings Kourtney, Khloe, Robert, Kendall and Kylie.
The daughter of the late Robert Kardashian, Kim Kardashian first gained media attention as a member of Paris Hilton’s (The Simple Life) entourage. She began to frequent the pages of numerous tabloids after a tape of her having sex with boyfriend, Ray-J, was made available on the Internet. Now, she is being featured on the cover of Playboy magazine’s December issue, wherein she has a 10-page nude spread.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians has made Kim Kardashian and her unconventional family even bigger celebrities, and E! is aware of the immense success the show has turned out to be.
“The buzz surrounding the series is huge and viewers have clearly fallen for the Kardashians,” Lisa Berger, executive vice president of original programming and series development for E!, said on Monday. “Seacrest and Bunim-Murray’s unique ability to capture this family’s one-of-a-kind dynamics and hilarious antics has made the series a fantastic addition to our prime time line-up. We’re delighted to announce a second season.”
Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sunday nights at 10:30pm on E!
