(CBS/AP) NEW YORK – TV viewers will be able to keep up with the Kardashians for three more years.
The E! Entertainment network said Tuesday it had reached a deal with its most bankable franchise to make three more seasons of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
Terms were not disclosed, but TMZ reports the famous family will get more than $40 million, citing sources connected with the deal.
The sixth season of the show averaged 3 million viewers on Sunday nights, the cable networks’ top series. Five of the 10 most-watched shows in the network’s history, in fact, involved the Kardashians. The 18-episode seventh season begins on May 20.
E! said the entire family is covered by the deal: Kim, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian Odom, and Bruce, Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. E! will continue to have the first crack at any spin-off projects.
Wellness, for obvious reasons, there is plenty of Internet discussion to go around regarding the new millenium phenomenon known as The Kardashians, and if I had to add my own one and a half cents to the matter, which may be all that really is or ever has mattered, it would simply be to state that a cause that we can support wholeheartedly, especially in such rough economic times, resides in the fact that theÂ Kardashian brand, especially with Kim and Khloe,Â is synonymous with Interracial Relationships, as if it is the new requirement for success and prosperity in the new age.
Start here, and the rest is mystery, or perhaps just a different perspective to consider.
