E! Denies Shutting Down KUWTK


Yesterday rumors spread that Keeping Up with the Kardashians had shut down production while Kanye West recovers from his nervous break-down [click here if you missed that].

E! is denying the claims...

In a statment to the media E! insists
"Keeping Up With the Kardashians is currently in production and has not been halted."
The network also confirms the ENTIRE family is still filming.

Until they know what to do with the advertising slots, they'll keep denying it. If the show is not in production (which it's not re: the crew isn't working or getting paid) the show is not on hiatus (hiatus would mean they have a definite production restart date which they don't have because the Union production staff are looking for work elsewhere.)

They'll deny until they have a final schedule for those times that the advertisers approve of.

Now MY comment got deleted! Snitch why are you deleting post that spill real tea OR are unfavorable to the popular narrative. The Koven is spinning out of control and their 15 minutes are up. Why are you riding the coattails of a dying brand anyway?

Did ANYONE really think Kim would do what's best for HER family? I guess PMK has taught her that the show must go on? Can we say,"Lamar's overdose"?

@10:42 Are you saying they lost advertisers? Why is that? Forgive me, I don't understand how television production works.

@Chrissy this is 10:42 - No, the slot still has advertisers who paid their money, but now they Network has to find first run/non-rerun programming that will bring in the level of revenue the advertisers paid for as a return on the contract i.e. If they paid to reach women ages 18 to 23 at 8pm the Network needs to provide proof that the replacement programming will fill the bill.

You notice KUWTK always runs in a marathon or block? It's because the show has limited products that will advertise during their show/only a handful of products will allow themselves to be associated with the show and the advertisers are getting a discounted rate. The Network gets to show other advertisers that they have all their slots filled using bogus numbers which helps sell more ad revenue for other shows.

Seacrest looks like he's a top-earning producer and can produce other things and the Network looks like it has solid revenue, but it's all a shell game. The only reason this is public is because so many producers pulled their ad buys and they can't hide it any more.

I hope this info helps; Love your posts!

^^^Excuse me, I meant say “many advertisers pulled their ad buys.”

Movies, TV, Radio, Music, it's all about revenue and what can be produced cheapest, in the least amount of time, and will return the investment. What it is and has always boiled down to is money, and now that KUWTK is no longer drawing Latino women ages 18 to 44 (like they promised/like they us to) it’s probably not worth the production costs and insurance. (Allegedly)

Oh the ways of business. Thank you, it all makes sense now. This is the world the Carters and other entertainers live in; so no hate to them from now on.

Chrissy Snow said...

@12:02 That explains why the Kardashians have been pulling so many crazy stunts. PMK must have something on Ryan because the plug should have been pulled on that show awhile ago.
The entertainment industry is crazy. I wish you much success in navigating that minefield. Thank you so much for explaining.

@1:23 ~ Thanks Chrissy. I do my best but am transitioning away from Production and into the Risk Management and Insurance part of the Industry. If only people knew how hard it was to get Liability Insurance on some of their favorite entertainers (due to drug issues) you'd all be shocked.

Anyway, through a direct grapevine they say Seacrest is actually a kind person. He was "mentored" by Merv Griffin and sees himself as the next Dick Clark. The only issue is he doesn't quite know what the public wants. Other producers took a hard pass on KUWTK when PMK was shopping their pilot around, but he figured "I need to start somewhere and the Latino community is growing and may identify with them" not understanding that most Latinos are deeply racist and don't condone interracial marriage (unless it's marrying their daughter off to some white guy to "anglicize" the family.

The show is cheap to produce and they got a slight A-List bump with Kanye, but now after the fake robbery (contrary to what we knew Kim did not tell the producers where she'd be and that video footage taken "after" the robbery was not by KUWTK staffers.)

Seacrest goes to Paris all the time (Google it) and would have provided top-notch security because of the criminals and migrants (don't shoot the messenger because Paris has always been dangerous but now more than ever.)

Who knows what Kim was really doing at the hotel, the only issue now is that "E!" needs to save face in front of advertisers who've already paid all while quietly looking for a KUWTK replacement.

Oh, and PMK doesn't want it with Seacrest and he's not afraid of her. He could bring the entire weight of the Network down on her if he wanted, not to mention the "Velvet Mafia" who really run things out here have no tolerance for the Kardashians anyway. Unless you're making a steady stream of money (which they never really did for anyone) you're expendable.

@ 1:41pm now that's some real tea and i believe every bit of it. And you're right about PMK. She dont want it with Secreast and I can only imagine what Kim was doing in Paris. More than likely "entertaining"one of her male suitors and got caught up. With Kanye on lock I know those gypsys are working overtime, but one thing is for sure we will get a real look at what that family is about when we see what is filmed and not filmed on that show.

They are filming Kanye in hospital as we speak. Will the witches Koven and Rob sacrifice Kanye?

Anonymous said...

@3:32 Filming according to who? Unless they can produce the Union fee sheets and shooting schedule, don't believe the hype. They "say" anything, but I wouldn't bank on it. Oh, and they were going to sacrifice Rob, but Kanye will be easier believed and turn Kim into a sympathetic grieving widow like Courtney Love.

BUT Courtney can't sleep at night and lives life on a cocktail of painkillers and opiods. Even the darkest souls can be tormented.

Lol ain't nobody gonna sacrifice Kanye SMH. That's to easy and will draw too much attention. Rob, Blac Chyna or baby Dream could be sacrifice. But Kanye? SMH They'll torture him before anything else.

Kris don't want it with Seacrest.

The family has alot to lose

E/Seacrest has nothing to lose but he needs to find a way to cut them loose it's only for so long that they can shop around for the slot buyers
