In theory, a talk show should be easy. You create a set, you get a good booker, and you talk. The setup is always the same: jokes during late night, roundtable discussions of the latest gossip in news during the day.
But in reality, launching a reality show is as hard as launching any other pilot. Khloe Kardashian made this clear this week, after just three months of producing her weekly nighttime talk show Kocktails with Khloe on FYI. Despite a relatively inventive twist on a basic format, which got record-breaking ratings (for the network it was on, at least), reports indicate Khloe pulled the plug on her own show because she wanted to work on her many other business ventures. The last episode will air April 20, and will feature Khloe’s sister Kim, her brother-in-law, plus family friends John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.
