‘KUWTK’: Fans Pitch Ideas to Bring ‘New Life’ to the Struggling Drama

It seems as though the Kardashian-Jenner family has been in the spotlight forever. Between their famous reality show, their lucrative businesses, and their ultra-popular social media accounts, fans can keep up with the family through many different methods.

However, Keeping Up with the Kardashians remains one of their biggest sources of both income and fan support, and with an all-new season on the horizon, fans are gearing up to hear and see the latest happenings in the drama-filled family.

Still, many believe that the show has taken a sharp downturn. Recently, fans on Reddit discussed ways that the Kardashian-Jenner family could possibly pump up the drama for the new season. 

When did ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ begin?

Viewers were first introduced to the Kardashian-Jenner family in 2007 when Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered on television. At the time, there was nothing else like the show on television, and viewers quickly became hooked on the drama-filled show.

From “momager” Kris Jenner and prissy oldest sister Kourtney Kardashian to the youngest sibling in the family, Kylie Jenner, it seemed as though everyone watching could relate to one specific family member.

Although ratings have dipped over the years, people still tune in to watch the famous family. Now, with a brand-new season set to debut within the next few weeks, people are looking back on some of the biggest scandals that have been featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians over the years. 

‘KUWTK’ has featured some major scandals

Not many people are willing to open their lives up to daily criticism, but the Kardashian-Jenner family went all in. In exchange for reality show stardom, the family has had to undergo extensive attacks from tabloids and critics. Over the years, some pretty major scandals have been documented on the show – from Kim Kardashian’s infamous 72-day wedding to the gradual breakdown of Khloe Kardashian’s marriage to Lamar Odom.

Viewers have also followed along with Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s relationship, from the earliest days of their courtship to their decision to raise their three children as friends instead of romantic partners.

Still, quite possibly the biggest scandal that has been captured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians is the infamous Jordyn Woods-Tristan Thompson situation, where Kylie Jenner’s best friend was caught kissing Khloe Kardashian’s problematic boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. The scandal, and the fallout surrounding it, provided tabloid fodder for months and kept fans talking. 

What do fans suggest for the next season of ‘KUWTK’?

With several members of the family taking a step back from the show, including Kourtney Kardashian, fans are becoming a bit disenchanted with Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Still, some juicy new drama could definitely help to revitalize the faltering show.

Recently, some fans on Reddit discussed ways to make the show more interesting. One poster recommended that the family completely change up the format of the show, and instead of featuring one continuous storyline, to film “smaller segments,” and incorporate other types of content, like makeup tutorials, lifestyle tips, and cooking demonstrations.

Fans also recommended cutting down each show’s runtime from the current hour to about thirty minutes, in order to keep storylines more concise and less “dragged out.” A great many posters agreed that the show needs “new energy” and that the family doesn’t even really seem into the show anymore. One popular suggestion was to have the family do destination-type shows, where they visit different locations around the world with the whole family in tow.

While it’s not clear how the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians will unfold just yet, it is certain that the family will have to do some quick thinking in order to regain their full fanbase.
