    • I’m having difficulty figuring out exactly WHO is watching the Kardashians. The only notice anyone seems to make of them is dislike/disgust. They don’t seem to do much of anything except promote themselves, and they have those irritating little-girl voices. But someone out there is watching the show, because the network keeps renewing it.

      • There’s no such thing as bad publicity, I guess. That would also explain someone out there coming up with a show Sandra Bullock’s ex Jesse James. I don’t know who, if anyone, would be interested in watching such shows, but apparently they think someone is.
        On the upside, at least this is more fodder for “The Soup” :).
