Could Over Saturation be the Downfall of the Kardashians?

“Momager” Kris Jenner recently pitched a prime time animated television series that will be featuring the whole Kardashian-Jenner clan – except Caitlyn. Usually, we would be happy about a new show involving the Kardashians. But something has changed.

It’s not as enjoyable watching them on TV anymore.

The Kardashians have millions of followers on social media and their faces are plastered literally everywhere you look – magazines, commercials, entertainment news, etc. Outlets are bombarding us with around the clock information about them. That’s where the problem lies.

Once upon a time, the Kardashians were a family you enjoyed watching; I know I did.

I used to watch Keeping up with the Kardashians every time it aired. To a certain extent, I still do especially when there are reruns of old episodes playing. My favorite episode was the infamous purse fight episode where Kim hit Khloe with her bag for being rude. It makes me chuckle every time.

Good times!

However, that seems like a century ago.

Now, I can’t stand to watch them. They turned from this quirky little family you passed time with, to a thirsty for fame, overexposed group. If they’re not careful, they are going to push themselves into obscurity where no one will care about what they’re doing.

Overexposure is a real thing and may soon be the downfall of the Kardashians. We see them far too often. They’ve opened themselves up to criticism as well as being attacked.

One can say Kim’s robbery in her Paris hotel was a result of her posting her every move. Documenting your every move for public consumption seems fun at first, but when it endangers your life, you learn it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

With the endless exposure, it’s completely natural to get bored of them which is why this little animated series won’t yield a huge return of investment. Sure we’re going to tune in to the first episode to see what it’s all about, but our viewership will dwindle soon after that. It’s happening already.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians season 13 premiere’s ratings were the lowest to date in the show’s history.

They are already losing our views. In fact, for Kim to return to the show, Kris had to negotiate a massive bonus for her. Reports have stated that Kim is reluctant to continue on the show. But who could blame her with everything she’s been through?

It seems with the Keeping up with the Kardashians imminent end, Kris is grasping at straws trying to make sure they stay relevant in any way possible. This animated series is the latest attempt.

When will the Kardashian-Jenner clan say enough is enough and stop begging for attention? We may never know.
