Kardashian-West Baby Photo Helped Score a Ratings Bump for 'Kris' Deadline

Kanye West's appearance on "Kris," where he shared the first photo of his baby with Kim Kardashian, helped boost the finale ratings for the Kris Jenner-hosted talk show, reports

The interview scored a series-high 1.7 household rating and performed well in Los Angeles and Dallas, where it ranked No. 1 in its time period, the story notes.

"But for the syndicated talk show’s entire six-week run on selected Fox stations, 'Kris' didn’t make a splash and came out just about even (0.8 in HH metered markets) with last year’s time period and with its lead-in," the piece points out.

Jenner is the mother of Kim Kardashian and the grandmother of the baby, North West.
