It's been almost a year since Kardashian momager Kris Jennerentered the talk show arena and was quickly shown the door. Fox gave Jenner's self-titled show a six-week summer trial run. Months after Kris's sneak peek, rumors started to trickle out Fox wouldn't bring the show back for the fall.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fox TV stations Senior VP and President of Programming Frank Cicha shared what went wrong with Kris. Chicha stated:

I think she was pretty uninteresting [on camera]. That was one where [sister company] 20th Television tried to capitalize 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.

Ouch! Cicha did give Jenner props for pouring her heart into making the show a success, garnering publicity for the show and not resorting to over-the-top antics. Cicha continued:

It wasn’t a disaster in the ratings,” said Cicha, adding that it would have been an expensive show to produce and wasn’t a good fit for the rest of his station group’s schedule. "When you added it up, it wasn’t a show that made sense for us."
