Kardashians = FAIL

“These are why I’m famous.”

Piers Morgan really scored a coup when the Kardashian sisters — minus Khloe (apparently they couldn’t squeeze her in on set) — agreed to appear on his new talk show last week. Too bad their retarded fans have never heard of “CNN.” From Sky News:

The Piers Morgan Tonight show launched on January 17 with 2.1 million viewers tuning in to CNN to see him interview Oprah. But since then, ratings have fallen nearly every day, reaching a low of 498,000 on Thursday when reality television stars Kim and Kourtney Kardashian appeared.

His interview with the sisters was beaten in the ratings war by rival talk shows on the US channels Fox News and MSNBC, as well as a supermarket documentary on CNBC.

Is anyone surprised that more people tuned in to a supermarket documentary than a talk show featuring the Kardashians? If you’re not, go to your local Walmart or shopping mall and take a look around. This country’s infatuation with eating has reached a point that it’s a shock that our cumulative weight hasn’t dragged the entire continent more underwater than Atlantis Nicolas Cage’s mortgage.
