A Fox executive cxlaimed he knew early on Kris Jenner's talk show host wouldn't be picked up because she wasn't very good on camera during the trial run.
kris jenner's talk show has been slammed by a Fox TV executive.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star had a six-week test run of a talk show on the network last summer, but bosses knew early on that 'Kris' would never develop into a full series as they felt the showbiz matriarch was ''uninteresting''.
Frank Cicha, senior VP and president of programming for the Fox Television Stations said: ''I think she was pretty uninteresting [on camera].
''That was one where [sister company] 20th Television tried to capitalise on a name. ... When the camera was on she looked not just like a deer in the headlights, but like a deer that already got hit.''
However, the executive admitted Kris worked hard and improved as the series went on, but the show never did well in the ratings - until the final show when son-in-law Kanye West was a guest and showed off baby pictures of his daughter North, now 12 months.
Cicha told The Hollywood Reporter: ''It wasn't a disaster in the ratings.''
The executive went on to explain 'Kris' didn't fit well with the station group's schedule and would have been expensive to produce.
He added: ''When you added it up, it wasn't a show that made sense for us.''
