Caitlyn Jenner’s “I Am Cait” reality TV show ratings are in – and her nemesis Kris Jenner’s worst nightmare is coming true. The highly anticipated docu-series made its premiere on E! Network on Sunday, July 26, and viewers tuned in by the millions. As anticipated, “I Am Cait” outshined Kris’s family’s show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” by leaps and bounds.
According to the Nielsen ratings, “I Am Cait” averaged a 2.1 on the scale, and brought in a little more than 3 Million viewers. A 2.1 is decent for any of the major networks like ABC, NBC, or CBS – for a cable show it is phenomenal. So, what does all that mean? Translation: “I Am Cait” tied for the most-watched cable network show on Sunday night with TNT’s drama “The Last Ship.” Caitlyn Jenner’s reality TV show even beat out the wildly popular HBO drama “True Detective.”
OF course E! is through the moon with the success of their new show. Kris Jenner, on the other hand, is hiding in her bathroom and pounding glasses of wine in the dark while she cries herself to sleep. Since it was revealed Caitlyn was scoring her own reality TV show, multiple sources have reported that Kris Jenner is shaking in her boots. The momager has raised a bunch of fame-hungry, self-obsessed narcissists – and she is scared that her kids are all going to abandon ship and leave Keeping Up With The Kardashians to star on Caitlyn’s show because she has double the amount of viewers. And Kris’s concerns aren’t exactly unfounded – just during the season premiere Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and even Kanye West (who won’t even appear on KUWTK) all made an appearance.
