THE only thing shock­ing about the re­cently an­nounced rat­ings death plunge for Keep­ing Up with the Kar­dashi­ans is that it took so long!

In­cred­i­bly, this id­i­otic ex­cuse for a re­al­ity show has some­how had enough watch­ers to stay on for 15 sea­sons.

Now, fi­nally, the view­er­ship for the fi­nal episode this sea­son plum­meted 37 per­cent from the 2018 pre­miere’s 1.3 mil­lion to a mere 851,000.

The Kar­dashi­ans were beaten soundly by the com­pe­ti­tion — a Hall­mark Christ­mas flick pulled in 3.4 mil­lion view­ers and the travel doc Alaska: The Last Fron­tier got nearly 2 mil­lion.

Hav­ing less than a mil­lion view­ers could force E! net­work big­wigs to can the Kar­dashi­ans!

And we say: YA­HOO!

The weird and un­de­served suc­cess of the Kar­dashi­ans only proves:

• Ap­pear­ing in a sex tape like Kim shame­fully did can make some peo­ple think you’re fas­ci­nat­ing.

• Trow­el­ing lay­ers and lay­ers of makeup on your face like Kim, Khloé and Kourt­ney can al­most make you pre­sentable.

• When it comes to mak­ing mil­lions, luck beats tal­ent ev­ery time.

Crit­ics say the ge­nius be­hind the su­per sit­com Se­in­feld was that each episode was about noth­ing im­por­tant, just hum­drum ev­ery­day life.

But that was made up by clever writ­ers, who added funny, sur­prise twists.

The Kar­dashi­ans is about petty, dumb stuff in their REAL silly lives — with NO twists.

The bor­ing blather these ban­shees blab is like the taped mu­sic in el­e­va­tors — to­tally for­get­table and UN-en­ter­tain­ing.

How­ever, we do have to give Kim credit for do­ing the im­pos­si­ble in one area.

This bloated-butt dimwit some­how man­aged to marry way be­neath her!

Her rap­per hubby, Kanye West, is an id­i­otic twerp!

The re­al­ity show may be on the chop­pingblock — thanks to sink­ing rat­ings!
