After getting your fill of monsters, how about a little reality? Or at least as real as it gets on television. E! introduced America to "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" in 2007. Formerly married to Robert Kardashian, one of O. J. Simpson's lawyers, the family matriarch, Kris, has a new spouse: former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner. Everyone surrounding the family is pulled into the Kardashian tornado. Celebrations, addiction, fashion, work, romance and the media are just some of the issues the family explores on the show.
The series' fifth season attracted 4.7 million viewers, which was up 14 percent from the prior season [source: McKay]. The Kardashian-Jenner family is binge-worthy because of the opulence, glamour, beauty, celebrities and occasional scandal. Family relationships are also a significant draw. The three oldest girls — Kim, Khloe and Kourtney — have unrivaled sibling chemistry. With all the hype and money, however, there are moments when viewers can say, "Hey, that's just like me."
