Khloe Kardashian’s Talk Show Axed
Last orders have been served for Khloe Kardashian’s boozy TV talk show. Executives at FYI Network have axed Kocktails With Khloe less than three months into its run.
“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,” reads a statement from network bosses. “We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Khloe and thank her for her hard work and unique voice that she brought to the series.” Reports suggest the decision was mutual, as Kardashian is keen to focus on her “other jobs,” and had no interest in shooting another season. She has shot a number of episodes of the show, which are still set to air, and sources reveal the finale will feature her brother-in-law Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, pregnant Chrissy Teigen, and her husband John Legend. The show premiered on the FYI cable channel on January 20, and Kardashian initially said she was “extremely proud and excited” about the project, which she also produced. “I’m lucky that I’ve been able to invite fans into my life and home on a weekly basis and this show will give me an opportunity to continue to do that with new and exciting guests.” The series was an instant hit and the same network bosses who have now scrapped the program ordered another 15 new episodes in February. This isn’t the first TV venture of Kardashian’s to get the chop – the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star failed to impress as the co-host on the second season of The X Factor in 2012, and lasted just one season as actor and TV personality Mario Lopez’s sidekick. Guests on Kocktails With Khloe, during which Kardashian chats candidly about sex and glamour while sipping signature cocktails, have included Trey Songz, Dita Von Teese, Travis Barker, Vivica A. Fox, Cassie, and members of her famous family.
