It takes a pretty good producer to be able to rein in a celebrity who has their heart set on TV stardom. There is precedent for shows to succeed, shows like Dog the Bounty Hunter, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and The Osbournes had tons of viewers and ran for years. These shows managed to mix the star’s celebrity status with a healthy dose of drama, plus good editing, and have succeeded in their market. Other shows have not been as lucky, and were cancelled pretty much immediately upon airing.
1. Kocktails with Khloé
Kocktails with Khloé first aired in January of 2016 on the FYI channel, and was produced by Khloé Kardashian. The talk show was designed to showcase Khloé as the host in an intimate, homey environment, chatting casually with her guests as if they were just friends in her home. Unfortunately for her, the format was awkward and the show tanked after just eight episodes. Her next attempt at hosting a TV show is Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian, which is set to premiere on E! Entertainment Television.
