Record-breaking reality TV leaves little to the imagination

Sunday night was a milestone in reality TV.

The E! channel set a record when 4.8 million viewers watched "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" on Sunday night, making the season 4 finale the most watched telecast in the network’s history, according to Nielsen ratings.

And if Kourtney’s on-again, off-again relationship with Scott Disick - the reality star fans love to hate - wasn’t enough to reel viewers in, surely the birth of Kourtney’s son Mason Dash Disick was.

E! left nothing to the imagination, showing the new mom from the time her water broke to the moment when she assisted in the delivery of her own baby.

Despite sister Khloe’s reaction to this cringe-worthy scene, everyone on the show seemed extremely calm and collected, including Kourtney.

    It's a stupid show for stupid people. I have the greatest reality show, it's called, "My Life". If more idiots paid closer attention to their own lives and "reality shows", this world would be a bit better and hopefully a bit smarter.

    Stupid show for stupid people.

    OJ Simpson's trial was held nearly 15 years ago. There are millions of prettier girls with more talent and more appealing posteriors. There IS no real reason for these spoiled girls to be famous except that they appeal to an increasingly brain-dead public which no longer demands quality from its music or television. As indicated by the mentality of most of the above comments, networks can continue to forgo the expense of hiring actual writers or actors because they know that their very GULLIBLE viewership will continue to tune in regardless.
    Head Diva in Charge, we know that this show isn't "smart or thought-provoking TV". MOST television isn't, no matter the format. There should be more offerings somewhere between 'smart' and 'brain-rot' instead of shows like this one which continually reach lowbrow to a new depth. If you people would like to continue to justify watching your so-called mindless reality on television, then fine. Just be good enough to admit that you're addicted to talentless crap and that the networks have made fools of you all.

    Their father made them famous. He was a defense attorney for OJ Simpson, and suddendly became a millionaire.
    Notoriously, he also held evidence that the court never saw...

    I guess this is what we've exchange for talent these days, these girls show up on the red carpet, the White House, and I'm left scracthing my head wondering.....don't get me wrong, they are good looking girls with great bodies, but last I checked, good looking girls with great bodies that do nothing end up in playboy.....wait but that's actually doing something, and the Kardashian's don't do anything......I'm confused.

    I enjoy watching the Kardashians because I have 3 teenage girls and they fight one minute, just like on the show, and then 10 minutes later they're best friends! My girls got me watching it and now I'm addicted, even though a lot of it probably is staged.

    thank you nicole for explaining the actual reason for their fame.

    and thank you God for creating Kim Kardashian.

    and Scott is a world class ***hole. it's little punk b****es like himself that screw things up for the rest of us. if i had a woman like Kourtney, i'd be on my p's and q's. that is a blessing for real. but some ppl cant understand that, and feel like they gotta get more. f*** that. holla at me if you wanna leave a chump and get with a champ.

    My wife watches this show and I just crack up all the time on the "random event's" that happen. A lot of this show is staged and the situations are setup in advance. Like the whole "getting lost in the Everglades" episode. How do you get lost? You get on I-75 and take it all the way to Tampa from Miami. And then they just happen to run out of gas and a swamp boat that is big enough to hold them and the camera crew just happens to come by. And when they were sitting outside at the house at night the camera crew just happened to have large exterior lighting with them to light up the trees in the background. Come on...

    And yes..Kim is famous for having a big ass and a sex tape.

    The Kardashians are famous because their father. He was a defense attorney for OJ Simpson and their mother sat on the opposite side of the courtroom with the victim's family. She was friends with the Nicole Brown Simpson. If you had been paying attention....

    I love this show, I am addicted! These girls are hilarious and so freakin adorable. I thought Sundays finale was really awesome, except for the fact that Kourtney and Khloe announced they are going back to Miami, whats that all about? And OMG Scott is the most fake and obnixous man ever, he totally uses Kourtney and cheats on her every chance he gets. She deserves better than this Spencer Pratt clone.

    I think this show is AMAZING. Not because it's smart or thought provoking TV, but because it ISN'T. It's mindless fun TV that makes you want to tune in every week. It's like a little 1/2 hour brain vacation!
