In 2019 Keeping Up with the Kardashians aired its 16th season, and the reality show continues to pull in an impressive one million viewers per episode. Yes, the televisual tales of the trials and tribulations of the Kardashian-Jenner family are still proving to be a big hit with audiences – even after 12 years in the spotlight. And that’s not even to mention the numerous spin-off shows and sidelines. So just what is it about these famous folks that keep people coming back for more?
After all, there’s arguably more content available at present on the small screen than ever before – offering audiences plenty of choice. Some channels specialize, in fact, in providing non-stop reality TV for the viewers at home. But while the genre has offered up any number of different shows that have faded fast in the past few years, Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been going strong since 2007.
Following the exploits of the titular family, the show has even made stars of Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian as well as their mom, Kris Jenner. And due to its popularity on the E! network, Keeping Up with the Kardashians has aired well over 200 episodes. The program has also earned more than its fair share of awards selected by audiences.
