FYI is pulling the plug on Kocktails With Khloé, its talk show hosted by Khloé Kardashian. Its 14th and final episode will air April 20. The show got off to a promising start on January 27, with the second episode catapulting the A+E network to its best day on record for digital viewing and logging a nearly 40% lift in total viewers in Live+3 viewership vs. same day. But Kocktails‘ numbers tapered off, recently logging 197,000 total viewers and a 0.1 in adults 18-49 in Live+7, with very little delayed-viewing boost. There also have been reports of backstage drama.
“After 14 episodes, Kocktails With Khloé will end its run on Wednesday, April 20, with an episode featuring Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen,” FYI and series producer Pilgrim Media Group said in a joint statement. “FYI and Pilgrim Media Group appreciate everyone’s great work on the series and are pleased that the show brought new viewers and significant numbers to FYI’s linear and digital platforms. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Khloé and thank her for her hard work and unique voice that she brought to the series.”
