All three shows saw an increase in viewers this week after suffering some downward trends each week since their premieres on June 2nd. RHONJ was back up to 2.41 million viewers tuning in and Princesses Long Island bumped up to 925,000 after hitting just 780,000 last week. Keeping Up with the Kardashians only ticked up a bit, from 2.1 to 2.2 million.
Below we have the breakdown of each week since their premieres.
As if the name North West wasn't bad enough (although I'm sure she'll be great at following directions! Ba dum ching!), the news surrounding Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby's arrival is getting more and more ridiculous. A push present that could pay off my student loans four times over and three birthing suites? Geez Yeezy.
Apparently, Kanye did, in fact, put a ring on it. However, unfortunately for Kim, it wasn't of the engagement variety. They'll save the wedding hype once all the attention over Compass the baby begins to fade.
According to TMZvia their BFF Kris Jenner, that is REALLY the name Kim and Kanye put on their baby girl's birth certificate. I know that Kim joked around a while back about naming her little girl Easton West, but Kanye wasn't on board. I'll be blunt and say that I don't believe that this is their baby's official "forever" name.
To K or not to K? That is the kwestion that I seriously doubt anyone cares all that much about! As the entertainment world runs out of K names (both common and out of left field), we are now opening up the guessing game to the other twenty-five letters. That should allow the name withholding to continue through the end of the summer!
For a week, the world has been waiting with baited breath (cough, cough) to find out what Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will name their new addition. I'll bet they make the announcement on the day Princess Kate gives birth…
Not surprisingly, this week's People has dedicated its cover to the "Delivery Room Drama" surrounding America's baby. Yes, I realize Kanye West said his daughter wouldn't be America's baby, but it's just so flipping funny. Here's the thing…was it really super dramatic?
Now, I realize that giving birth prematurely is no joke, but can I just throw out a conspiracy theory that her due date may have been misconstrued? Mind you, it's not a theory I was smart enough to concoct on my own, but I jumped right onboard. Can't you just picture Kris Jenner pressuring daughter Kim Kardashian into giving the press an earlier due date? "But Kim, just think about all the attention you'll get when you go into premature labor?" In my head, the conversation takes place in the back of a limo with blacked out windows…just like this one (an oldie but a goodie, of course!). It wouldn't be the first time the family fibbed..
But again, that's my bishy, trash-loving brain talking. Obviously, regardless of her true due date, I am happy that mother and baby are healthy.
Not surprisingly, the Kardashians are proving time and time again that they are A LOT to keep up with…especially with Kim and Kanye West's new addition. Throw in mom Kris Jenner's uncontrollable need to pimp out anyone with her DNA, and you've got a veritable rodeo of gossip to whet your appetite!
According to Radar Online, Kris has been hinting non-stop that Kimye, Jr. may make her television debut…not on Keeping up with the Kardashians, but on the pimp momager's new daytime talk show. An insider said that Kris basically urged viewers “to tune into her new talk show to get all the inside scoop about Kim’s newborn baby," adding, "When someone asked Kris if the baby would make an appearance on the show, she demurely said ‘you will have to watch.'"
The same source reveals, “Kris was asked if she had any pictures of the baby, and she revealed she did, but didn’t want share with anyone. Kris was absolutely loving all of the attention she was getting, and was absolutely milking it."
Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered at 2.84 million, which dipped down to 2.25 the next week and again lowering to 2.13 this past Sunday night. Princesses: Long Islandstarted out at 1.2 million viewers in its first week, dropping to 887,000 the next week and winding up with just 780,000 this week! Also declining steadily is Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Kim and family debuted at over 3 million, dropped to 2.46 the next week and landed at just 2.11 million this week.
Now the real fun begins as everyone speculates as to whether the baby will be kept out of the spotlight per Kanye's wishes or whether the poor child will be Kris Jenner's newest kash kow. Bless that child.
Deadline is reporting that the newest West Kardashian won't be getting it's own special (yet), but she will likely make her debut on season eight of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Wait, what!?! 'Ye, did you green light this?
