The ratings for Caitlyn Jenner’s E! docuseries, ‘I Am Cait,’ continue to drop: the third episode, which aired last Sunday, saw a further drop in ratings. As you can imagine, both Caitlyn and the E! executives are “disappointed” in these ratings.
A network insider said:
Executives and producers for the show feel that Caitlyn is being overexposed. E! invested so much time and money into this project and everyone is just kind of baffled at how poorly it is doing.”
At first I thought the same, but think about how much we see of the Kardashians. Every DAY there’s a new story about them, and they seem to practically live online between Instagram and twitter, so I don’t know if overexposure is really the issue. Could it be the more “high brow” nature of the show? Caitlyn seems to be going for a more educational tone rather than the over-the-top craziness that the Kardashians are known for.
Caitlyn reportedly is turning to her kids for help.
Caitlyn has begged the rest of her kids to help her out because her biggest fear right now is that the show will be cancelled.
“Caitlyn got paid, but for her that isn’t enough. She wants ratings gold and it is evident that if something drastic is done that this show will most likely not make it to its final episode.”
Haven’t the eight episodes been shot at this point? I guess they could re-shoot some things. It’s interesting that Kim Kardashian seems to have had the biggest presence on her show. Kanye West even appeared on camera, but that’s been it in terms of Caitlyn’s children’s involvement. We already knew her four older kids from her first two marriages had refused to participate.
Well, ‘I Am Cait’ is still on the schedule. A source said:
As of right now, there are no definitive plans to pull I Am Cait off of the air.”
Since there are only five more episodes to go, that makes sense. If Caitlyn really wants to pursue a reality TV career, then she may want to consider a return to ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ especially since she and Kris Jenner seem to be on better terms these days. Why do you think ‘I Am Cait’ isn’t doing so well in the ratings?
